Before implementing the fuel catalyst into the fuel system of the Drilling Rig, on average, the rig was using ten inches of fuel per day. Each inch of tank is 52 and 1/2 gallons therefore, on average, the rig used 525 gallons of fuel per day... It costs $2,142 a day for fuel to operate the rig. The entire tank was then treated with the fuel catalyst, the capacity of the tank is 3,412 gallons. After implementing the fuel catalyst into the fuel system, the rig began on average using 8 inches of fuel per day, saving 2 inches, or 105 gallons of fuel. The second implementation of the fuel catalyst, yielded savings of 945 gallons of fuel over a 9 day period. Over the 9 days of testing, the fuel catalyst resulted in savings of $3,855.60. On a yearly basis this could add up to savings of $156,383.14.

Powered by two 3208TA Caterpillar Marine Engines. Since purchasing the boat, Captain Johnson had been battling heavy black smoke, poor performance, and poor fuel economy. Johnson would spend 40 minutes cleaning black soot from the transom. It has Improved fuel economy: 31% (from .65 to .85 mpg.)

Exterran Trucks and Tractors before I started the treatment I was using 10 LBS of boost with no load at 60 MPH. After the treatment I was using 5 LBS of boost at the same speed. Also I gained 3 miles more per gallon. S0 for sure your treatment gave me more horsepower due to cleaning the engine and fuel system and better MPG. Also in the last month my injectors need to be change (due to just normal wear and tear) so when the diesel mechanics tour down the engine they said under my heads where super clean for 160,000 miles . They said I must change my oil all the time to keep the inside of my engine that clean. But in all reality I do not. In fact I pull trailers with it more than not. I work the truck very hard. As you know I am a Natural gas compressor mechanic and been at Exterran for ten years. I would have to say I would keep using this in my trucks and tractors.

Working trial included fleet of 25 cement-mixer retail trucks (Packard, Peterbilt, International) ranging in age from 1992 to 2006. Trucks carry 50 and 75 gallon tanks. Improved mileage / fuel economy 19.2%. Improved emissions (total gases and total fleet) 35% (some individual trucks had up to 85% reduction). Improved maintenance and vehicle productivity 12%.

UCLA Chemical Engineering Department I do not expect the introduction of 2 ppm QFI additive to combustion engine liquid fuels should have a harmful effect on either the engine piston chamber or the exhaust system... Therefore, as a consequence of this well controlled experimental study, the QFI additive should not have a harmful effect in combustion applications.

United States Marine Corps initial testing showed that Quantum Fire Inc. Catalyst produced an improvement in fuel economy on the order of 12% to 18%. The US. Marine Corps was pleased to inform Quantum Fire Inc. that based on the positive results they are now ready to move forward with additional analysis ahead of schedule.

Took a trip to the oil rigs east of the jetties. Added QFI fuel catalyst to both tanks because both 555 Cummings engines were smoking. By the time we trolled out to the rigs and back, both engines had quit smoking.

2008 Duramax Diesel Truck had 65,000 miles and was getting 20 to 21 mpg. After QFI was added, fuel economy improved to 23 to 24 mpg. The powerband from second to third gear was low. Now, power has increased to what would be expected from this kind of truck. Improved fuel economy: 14.9% (from 20.5 to 23.5 mpg.)

Crew Boat "Mr. Pedro" with two (V-12 71) GMS engines and a 4-cylinder Perkins generator. Normal run on this job burned 126 gallons of fuel. After the catalyst was added to the fuel, only 108 gallon of fuel were burned with less smoking. Improved fuel economy: 14.2% (126 to 108 gallons of fuel)

"Orion" Pearson Sportfisherman. Filled boat with diesel (240-gallon capacity) with 2.5 quarts of QFI. After only four hours of running time, engines stopped all smoking. After another six hours of run time, inspected turbo blades and they were free of carbon In the past, inspection of turbo blades always had heavy carbon deposits.

"Rebecca" 85-foot Shrimp Trawler has a KT 1150 Cummins engine with a 6000-gallon tank that used to "pour" out black smoke. With QFI, the boat started running smokeless, crisper, more horsepower and the engine sounded great. It is hard to measure fuel burn in a shrimp boat due to the varying conditions of wind, net drag, current, etc. "I know that with no black smoke, I am burning more diesel in the engine and not blowing it out the exhaust".

Tugboats Working Trial every captain noticed a remarkable change in the performance of the boats they were running. Captains noticed increased power of the push-boat engines. They initially reported less and less black smoke, and then no smoke off the muffler stacks. Improved fuel economy: 15 to 23%
