FFC Heavy Equipment:

The city of Allentown PA Sept/ 2010
2007 Elgin Pelican Street Sweeper, JD 4.5L, 99hp --- Results: 11.1% fuel savings
1999 Mack Truck EM7 425hp --- Results: 15.0% fuel savings

Heating Systems:

Department of Environmental Protection’s Burlington Trout Hatchery Burlington, CT Boiler Test Report (April 9/2010)
Boiler: Weil Mclean 408,000 BTU Hot water system
Furnace: C.A. Olsen, Model OH-85E

The Fitch achieved at least a 10% reduction in fuel consumtion without compromise in the boiler and furnace output.the Fitch would indicate a combined average fuel savings of approximately 389 gallons of oil. At price of $2.60 per gallon, the dollar savings would equal $1,011.10 in the first year.
Emission Reductions There were reductions in NOx, CO and CO2 emissions after the Fitch Catalyst was installed. This reduction of greenhouse gases has a direct public health benefit and offers the potential for obtaining Emission Credits especially if all State building reductions are aggregated. In both cases, there was no evidence of smoke residue. Click here.

PAT MCMORROW - GMC, Chrysler, F-150 Ford and Harley Davidson, 2010:
We have Fitch Fuel Catalyst in our GMC, Chrysler, F-150 1986 Ford, H/D motorcycle and this will be for our new 2010 F-150 5.4 V-8 Ford Harley Davidson addition. I can attest to the increase in fuel economy anywhere from 2-3 more miles per gallon. The long trips we almost got 3.4 more miles per gallon. I kept records of miles per gallons before each Fitch was installed in our vehicles. A happy customer. (In our customer Auto testimonials section)

2010 GMC Sierra 5.3, Mike Russo :
Before the Fitch was installed, I was averaging about 17 mpg between highway and city driving.......I drove around that weekend and gassed up a couple days later and found I was averaging 21 mpg. Thanks for a great product.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Installation and Testimonial:
I had one on my Tacoma, it was an 03 with the 2.7l 3rz, at first after I installed it there was maybe 1mpg better, but after rereading the install instruction I disconected the battery for the ecu to clear and then repowered the truck. After that according to fitch the ecu will remap fuel injection cycles for the better quality fuel. After 3 complete tanks of gas I hand number crunched and got a consistant 3.2 mpg increase. I have plans to install another on my truck now, but I'm waiting to save up and get the titan tank, the Glacier line kits and an airdog 2 all at once. So I can honestly say i reccomend the Fitch fuel cataylst. Oh and I also got on of the small drop in catalyst for the lawn mower and it did run better.

1996 Ford Crown Victoria, David Morales :
My personal opinion is that this product has worked efficently, and increased mileage....

2003 Chevy K1500 Sierra 4x4 GMC Sierra, Gary Jones :
My truck is running a lot better I filled up the gas tank last Monday. A week ago my trucks a 2003 Chevy 100k miles 4x4, I’ve driven around town for a week stop and go traffic and today my gas gage says 3/4 of a tank of fuel. so id say the fitch works and I’m glad its on my truck, before I’d get maybe 3-4 days driving around town before my gas gage said 3/4 now its 7 days.

   Fitch Canada on the Road: Fitch Canada was proud to have attended the 7th Annual Dutchy Mason Blues Festival this month. With our display in the Motorcycle show area, our product was well received by thousands of visitors who attended the show. Interest was shown in many areas, including our heating applications, by some as far away as Ontario! With winter on the horizon it will soon be time to start thinking about heating costs coming. Save your hard earned cash, and lower your emissions, by installing a Fitch Fuel catalyst on your heating system.


Added Sept 20th / 2011:

FFC and Ethanol Blended Fuels: Once again we have had quite a few inquiries about the use of the FFC in fuels with ethanol added, and the answer is yes the Fitch does perform in fuels with ethanol added. The Fitch also helps to reduce the ability of ethanol to absorb water, which it does and it is not good for your engine.In the report from Intertek Caleb Brett Labratories, after testing the FFC, they stated "The fuel exposed to the Fitch Fuel Catalyst is preferable from the perspective of the consumer and would be our recommendation compared to the untreated fuel." You can view the full report  Here

It was brought to our attention that there was a question as to the life of the FFC product. Some somewhere had commented about it working fine for a year and then seemingly the mileage dropped off? This is a very unusual occurance and required some investigation into what may be happening with the product or vehicle. What we found out was pretty interesting. What many consumers do not know is that the 10% ethanol blend is actually causing a loss of fuel mileage, and in a pretty large numbers.

The Effects of Ethanol Gasoline Blends in Cars, Boats, and Small Engines
The blending of ethanol into gasoline across the nation is now a common practice due to recent EPA mandates for increasing ethanol content in gasoline from 10% to 15%. These mandates are aimed at improving air quality and reducing air pollution from fuel emissions, which ethanol blends achieve through the lowering of harmful emissions. But ethanol causes major issues for consumers, who face loss of mileage, storage issues and a tendency for ethanol to corrode plastic and fiberglass tanks and parts, especially in marine applications. Some problems are as follows:
Water accumulation in gas tank - ethanol absorbs water from the air
Deposit build up
Loss of power
Rough running
Lower fuel mileage
Corrode internal engine components
Contaminents in fuel system
Fuel phase separation - cannot be restored
Encourages microbial growth in fuel
Short shelf life -as short as 90 days

I would like to also provide a link to some interesting information that many may not know about. There is information in many forums where people are realizing this problem. Here is a link to a very informative website on the subject. You can view over 200 comments from across the US about peoples experiences with ethanol fuel. Click Here
