Ten 35 Fuel Treatment Tests

 

          We get many opportunities to test other companies’ fuel enhancement product, and are always hopeful that we will find something that we can add to our Hydrogen Boost System to improve the mileage gain we achieve.  So far we have tested a number of fuel and oil additives with little success.  This time we are testing Ten 35 Fuel Treatment combustion catalyst burn rate modifies, lubricant and biocide, produced by Filtakleen Inc. in Sandy, Utah and operating the web site www.filtakleen-usa.com .

 

          The test was done on two test vehicles, a 1994 Chrysler Pacifica with a built in mileage calculator, and a 1996 Saturn SL1 with a calibrated Scangauge calculating the trip mileage.  Protocol was to travel 40 miles South down I-87 from the Hudson River crossing south of exit 18 to the exit ramp at exit 8, then a return trip North over the same section of road, traveling at a constant 65 mph.  The trip mpg calculator is reset at the beginning of each test run and the trip mpg readout is recorded at the end of each run.  The intake air temperature was also recorded for each run.  Following are the raw and calculated data.

Discussion:

          At first there seemed like there may have been some benefit of using the fuel additive, but upon analysis of the data it is clearly obvious that the initial increases in mileage were due to the increase in temperature.  It wasn’t until the weather cooled again, three weeks later, that we could confirm that the mileage at the same temperature but with the fuel additive was not improved at all.  In fact the Pacifica showed the same mileage with and without the additive but the Saturn showed about 4% less mileage with the additive that without.   

          What we can take from this analysis is that mileage of both vehicles improved with intake air temperature increase by about 1% better mpg for every 10 degrees of temperature increase.  Another conclusion we can clearly make is that rain does not increase mileage as some people think, but decreases mileage relatively proportionate to the depth of standing water on the road and density of the water in the air.

 

Conclusion

 

          Ten 35 Fuel Treatment additive did NOT increase mileage on either of the cars tested, but at least it didn’t cause a decrease like the BioPerformance pills we tested and reported on in our May 2006 newsletter, or the decrease in mileage caused by the Nano Energizer fuel additive we tested and reported on in our January 2007 newsletter, but more of a wash like the tests we did on Ethos Fuel Reformer additive that we reported on in our December 2004 newsletter.  We are still looking for a real fuel mileage enhancement fuel additive.
