FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (MPG50 FUEL ENHANCER)
Q: How Does MPG50 Work?
A. When MPG50 is added to your fuel as a catalyst, your fuel undergoes a chemical change. It oxygenates your fuel, allowing it to burn more completely. The fuel combustion in your engine also occurs at lower temperature. When your fuel burns better, the result is reduced emissions & increased horsepower. The improved burning of your fuel prevents carbon deposit build-up in the combustion chamber of an engine, and causes the removal of existing carbon deposits. Many users will notice their Spark Plugs & injectors will also be cleaner and last longer. By having less carbon in your engine, the oil will stay cleaner longer. Cleaner Spark Plugs & Cleaner Oil will result in a significant reduction in tune-ups & oil changes.
Q: What Is A Catalyst?
A. A catalyst is a substance which accelerates or slows a chemical reaction, but one which in and of itself undergoes no permanent change.
Q: What if I am not seeing Fuel Economy Results?
A. These instructions and tips should help you optimize your results with MPG50. Most people who follow the directions below will see optimal results within 3 bottles of use. Please follow these directions before making your evaluation of MPG50.
Tankfuls # 1 & 2 >> 1 oz to 5 Gallons . . . this will start to clean the old unburned carbons from your engine. This takes time, so please be patient.
Tankful # 3 >> 1 oz to 10 Gallons . . . this should begin to produce fuel economy results. If you are not satisfied with the results after the 2nd bottle, or you would like to see if you can improve your results, go to the next dosage below.
Tankful # 4 >> 1 oz to 15 Gallons . . . many times it is necessary to reduce to this dosage to get optimal fuel economy results. If the fuel economy drops, then return to 1 oz to 10 gallons
** If you have already completed the first tankful or more at 1 oz to 5 gallons, proceed to 1 oz to 10 gallons. If you already have tried 1 oz to 5 gallons, and 1 oz to 10 gallons for an entire tankful at each dosage, proceed to 1 oz to 15 gallons for a complete bottle. Some people make the mistake of using too much MPG50 & not understand that reducing the dosage after the initial 2 tankfuls may improve mileage.
Please consider trying this program, we believe when you find the right dosage for your vehicle, you will be thrilled with the results. At 1 oz to 10 gallons, you only need a 4% increase in fuel economy to return 100% of your investment in MPG50. If you are getting 15 mpg, you only need to increase to 15.6.
Another factor that many people don't consider, is that you may not be able to notice a 4% increase in fuel economy. The only way you can truly measure this type of increase is to measure your total miles you obtain on a full tank of gas. Example, if you get 300 miles to a tank at 15 mpg, you need to get just 312 miles out of a tank for MPG50 to pay its way and be Free to use. Again, many people don't do an accurate measurement, thus they miss the increase in fuel economy which is not noticeable by simply looking at the fuel gauge.
Some people see results when they actually stop using MPG50 for 1-2 tankfuls. Then they notice that their mileage drops, and their car or truck doesn't run with the same pep when they stop using MPG50. You want to try this. Drive 1-2 tankfuls without MPG50. Measure your total mileage on the 2nd tankful, then you will have a good measurement when you resume using MPG50.
Probably the most common mistake we see, is people think that the first bottle is going to produce dramatic, noticeable results. As explained above, this is not a fair expectation, especially when you engine has unburned carbon that will need time to be eliminated.
Another benefit most people don't realize is the money you will save with a cleaner engine. If you change your oil 3 times a year, we believe you can reduce this in half. By reducing oil changes by 50%, you will return your investment on 2 bottles of MPG50 just on the oil change savings. Add to all this, that you are doing your part to reduce pollution, and we believe that everyone benefits from using MPG50.
Q. What type of Engines will MPG50 work in?
A. MPG50 works in all internal combustion engines that use Petroleum based fuels including Diesel engines. MPG50 works well in RV's, Motorcycles, Boats, Tractors, Lawn mowers, Chain saws, Generators, Snowmobiles, Snow blowers, Garden Tools & more. MPG50 will also boost octane and eliminate standard condensation water when used in Aviation Fuel.
Q: Why Should I Use MPG50?
A. MPG50 will save you money by reducing fuel consumption and engine maintenance in addition to the positive environmental effects. MPG50 use will assure that your vehicle is operating at peak performance. MPG50 also substantially reduces dependence on foreign oil because of its unique ability to boost mileage. The world is dependent upon oil for energy. Transportation fuels alone account for approximately 48% of all oil consumption (U.S. Department of Energy). We don't have to look any further than the price at the pump to see that we have a growing problem. A 2% per year reduction in U.S. dependence on foreign oil over a period of 3 to 4 years would translate into a reduction of the importing of oil in the range of 600 billion dollars.
Q: How Often Should I Use MPG50?
A. One ounce of MPG50 should be added to each five gallons of fuel until decarbonization has occurred . . . i.e. your engine is clean. Decarbonization is normally accomplished by the time you run through a third tank of fuel with MPG50. The recommended maintenance application then becomes one ounce to ten gallons of fuel. Your savings increases significantly when you reach maintenance dosage because you are using less MPG50 to treat the same amount of fuel.
Q: Should I use MPG50 differently in the Winter months?
During the winter months, the gas companies ship different fuel blends to areas of the country that experience cold winter weather. If you live in such an area, please be aware that this winter fuel mixture results in lower fuel economy. If your vehicle experiences a loss of previous mileage increase resulting from MPG50, it may be due to the winter fuel blend. In such a circumstance, the manufacturer recommends that you DECREASE the amount of MPG50 to 1 ounce to 15 gallons and even 1 ounce to 20 gallons. This should return your mileage increase to previous levels after a few tankfuls. This change should only be made if you experience a loss of previously improved fuel mileage.
Q. Why do some people see varying fuel economy results & should I be concerned?
A. There are many of different fuel blends across the country among different oil companies. Also, fuel companies blend different fuel for winter & summer seasons. Thus some people see varying fuel economy results from month to month even at times tank to tank. MPG50 will always improve the efficiency of the burn of the fuel in your engine and will extend engine life and reduce pollution, but fuel economy results can fluctuate. We encourage you to measure your fuel economy results over an extended period of time, such as 6 months or a year. When you measure your results over the course of a year, and see reduced maintenance costs & increased engine life, most everyone will save substantially more money than they spend on MPG50. So, we encourage you to continue using MPG50 just as you regularly change your oil & filter to protect your engine & protect your vehicles.
Q: Can I switch to a lower grade (Octane) gas such as regular grade or mid grade when I start using MPG50?
A. Most engines which use premium or mid-grade fuel will be able to switch to a lower grade of fuel without knocking when using MPG50. This saves you even more on fuel costs. If your engine knocks when using the lowest grade of fuel with MPG50, then use the next higher grade of fuel.
Q: Will MPG50 work in fuels which have ethanol added?
A. MPG50 will work in fuels that have ethanol in the fuel, but ethanol has much less energy than gasoline, so expect your mileage to drop off when using ethanol blends. However, MPG50 will clean your engine, increase fuel economy & assist in emissions reduction in fuels containing ethanol blends.
Q: What if I notice the engine light turns on or off when I start using MPG50?
A. MPG50 causes better use of oxygen with your fuel in the engine combustion chamber. Many vehicles have an oxygen Sensor that measures this oxygen level. Due to increases in oxygenation you may see your engine light come on when you start using MPG50. Some people may even see this light turn off when using MPG50. We recommend you drive your vehicle for at least 3 tankfuls of fuel to allow MPG50 to clean your engine's combustion chamber. In most cases the Engine Light will turn off. MPG50 may not solve all internal engine problems, thus if you notice performance problems that last more than 600 miles, contact your local service center.
Q: What advantages does MPG50 have when used with Alternative Fuels such As BioDiesel?
A. When you use BioDiesel, and other alternative fuels, fuel economy and lubricity typically decreases. MPG50 has demonstrated superior results in increasing fuel economy and lubricity in alternative fuels such as BioDiesel.
Q. How do I store a bottle of MPG50 in my car?
A. If you are going to store a bottle(s) of MPG50 in your car, we recommend you store it in your trunk in an upright position, by placing the bottle securely in a small box, such as the shipping box it arrived in. After using MPG50, secure the cap tightly and return to your trunk in an upright position.
Q. Can MPG50 withstand excessive temperatures when being stored?
A. Temperatures over 100 degrees may cause bottle discoloration and loss of seal resulting in leakage. We recommend storage of MPG50 below 100 degrees. For storage above 100 degrees, such as your trunk in the summer months, we recommend protective covering to contain any potential leakage.
Q. Does the Manufacturer of MPG50 Guarantee that it will not harm my engine?
A. In 39 years of testing and use MPG50 has been proven to be safe when added to any internal combustion engine and therefore MPG50 International provides the following warranty:
We guarantee the use of MPG50 to be safe for use in any internal combustion engine. If MPG50 can be shown in any type of test to have damaged any internal combustion engine, we. will replace the damaged parts of the engine free of charge.
Q: Will MPG50 Void my vehicle's Warranty?
A. MPG50 will not void a vehicles warranty: General Motors Response to MPG50 - "using the fuel additive will not void your warranty".
MAGNUSON MOSS WARRANTY ACT, US Code - Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312 - Legally, a vehicle manufacturer can not void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)). For best results, consider working with performance-oriented dealerships with a proven history of working with customers. If your vehicle manufacturer fails to honor emission/warranty claims, contact EPA at (202) 260-2080 or http://www.epa.gov/. If federal warranty protection is denied, contact the FTC at (202) 326-3128 or http://www.ftc.gov/ .
Q: Can one individual make a difference in helping to improve the air we breathe?
A. Yes! By using MPG50 on a regular basis & making sure your vehicle is well maintained, you can make a difference in improving the quality of the air we breathe. The world is beginning to experience a major health crisis due in part to exhaust and other airborne emissions created from the use of fossil fuel. In 1935 the chances of developing the most serious form of skin cancer were 1 in 1500. It is now expected to exceed 1 in 75. It is further predicted that 1.6 million new cases of cataracts and 300,000 new cases of skin cancer will occur before the year 2002 (EPA 1997). The EPA has also estimated that ozone depletion is responsible for approximately 15,000 premature deaths annually, 350,000 cases of aggravated asthma and one million cases of decreased lung function in children. Lung disease is now the #3 killer in the U.S., and more than 30 million Americans live with some type of lung disease. You can make a world of difference by using and telling others about MPG50.
Q: Can fuel that is treated with MPG50 be stored for long periods of time?
A. All gasolines go bad after a certain time limits. MPG50 does not extend shelf life of gasoline.
Q: Can MPG50 be stored in a trunk in hot temperatures, or in a garage in cold weather?
A. MPG50 will freeze in long term extreme cold weather. MPG50 will swell in the bottle in extreme hot weather.

Is There A Difference In Winter-blend And Summer-blend Gas & Does It Effect Gas Mileage?
in winter-blend fuels we get about 10% of either Ethanol or MTBE (Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether) http://www.seco.cpa.state.tx.
Winter-blend gasoline is cheaper because it does not contain the costly processing that makes summer gasoline cleaner. The Environmental Protection Agency requires the removal of the volatile chemicals which evaporate in hot temperatures & mix with pollutants to create ozone in summer months, the AP reported. The blends differ by about 1 cent per gallon in price, but pump prices between the two fuel blends can vary as much as 10 to 15 cents at the pump, according to Phil Flynn, analyst for Alaron Trading Corp.
IMPORTANT SAVINGS TIPS WHEN PUMPING GAS
Here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every gallon.)
1. Only buy fuel or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening....your gallon is less actually than a gallon.
In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role.
A one-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business & America's service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
"So what?", you ask.
Well, according to a study done by the Kansas City Star, U.S. consumers paid about $2.3 billion more for gasoline & diesel in 2006 than they would have had to if the pumps had been temperature compensated or if they had bought gas in the early morning.

2. When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to the fast mode.
If you look you will find that most triggers have three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping.
All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. When you are pumping on the fast rate, much of the liquid going into your tank becomes vapor. That vapor is being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank, so you're getting less gasoline for your money.
3. One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is just half full (or half empty). The reason for this is, the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space.
Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine.
Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon is actually the exact amount.
Another tip, if there is a gasoline truck pumping fuel into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, GO TO A DIFFERENT GAS STATION.
Most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you could pick up some of the dirt and other debris that normally settles on the bottom of storage tanks. This will clog your fuel filter faster and may cause related problems to your vehicle's fuel system.
This info put to use will help you get more value for your dollars spent on gasoline & diesel fuel.
