Cetane booster adds MPG's

Cetane booster at twice the recommended dose will add +4-5 mpg's in the Passat.

A whole quart of Power Service to 8 gallons will add +10 mpg's but unfortunately you'll lose 20hp on the dyno.

I sell the AMSOIL Cetane Boost for $61.20 a case of 12 cans. ($5.10 a can)
Individually they cost $5.40, but if you buy a case *** is cheaper.

1 16ounce can does 200 gals.

I guess you have to do the math as for what it would cost you, and save you.

Beat one early 4.6 Moosetang by 3/10th in the 1/4 and got beat by 2/10th by another early 4.6 Moosestang after my .097 redlight caused him to redlight by .001.

I should have never geeked up the cetane to race.........................................
