No doubt you’ve seen the multiple brands of fuel additives that you can buy at your local automotive shop. They come with the promise of more power, better acceleration, and better gas mileage, but is it a significant amount and does it warrant the extra cost? It is no secret, that in the past, some companies that produce these products have been in and out of the courts over law suits filed claiming that it is false advertising, however, those same companies point to their data saying that they work. So, who do you believe? Do you trust that it will be money well spent? The Superior Automotive Group has the same question, and while we already know the answer, I still wanted to try to find some additional proof as to the validity of loading your fuel tank with an additive that claims to boost your efficiency.
The video below was produced in England and put the claims about power boosting additives to the test, and the results are rather surprising.
As we suspected, you just can’t buy more horsepower out of a few ounces of liquid. Now keep in mind that while these tests point to a net loss in power, they actually didn’t test any of the gas saving additives that are on the market. So, I guess we are back where we started, still a little in the dark. If you feel that you are getting the added horsepower or fuel efficiency that you expect, then more power (pun intended) to you. However, Superior STRONGLY advises that you do your research before you put additives in your vehicle. The best way to get better mileage and more power would be to buy a higher grade of gasoline. Of course you can always “buy” more horsepower by purchasing a new vehicle. Swing by Superior Cars and give some of our vehicles a test drive and really increase your power..
