why do u think 2 lead balls in the tank will make your bike run faster???

Well, i'm also curious about its mechanism of action. But a few riders claimed an increased in fuel consumption of up to 40km/L.

what do u think??

if this thing stay in the tank n do nothing, do u think it works?

we learn science in school, two chemicals mixed will cause reaction n change it's compositions.

this thing can stay in your tank for a long time n do nothing.

i did brought this thing after all these ppl say it works.

all these ppl who say it works r B.u.l.l. S.h.i.t.t.i.n.g.

nothing happens n it did nothing, can't get refund.

if u want to waste your money go ahead n waste your money.

i already did it, wasted my money.

 

here's how u can save money on fuel:

if u always travel at 100 kph, reduce speed to 80 kph can save 10% of your avg FC.

further FC saving of 10% avg if reduce to constant 60 kph.

reason is fuel burnt at a constant rate,

so the higher revolutions of the engine turns means there is lesser time for fuel to burn,

thus pump out more fuel.

True, i would need documents to prove its claims too.

how i wish the manufacturer could give us a live demo on the dyno on how much extra power the pellets could give us... i really cant believe how a few balls could increase power and increase economy.....

Many countries wouldn't be able to sell this, no proof, essentially ripping off the consumers

 

yeah... think those countries have those consumer protection schemes or something like that... no proof no sell!!!

well, i have heard both positive and negative remarks on the product...

 

to me, just like alot of other products out there (like the voltage stabilisers, grounding kits, etc)

 

there has no hard facts / documentation / research on them and hence, people who buy it, roll the dice and take your chances...

don't base on your reserve light.

your reserve sensor is very sensitive to positive displacement in your fuel tank.

it means tat when you put in the balls in the tank, fuel level will rise.

 

for example:

take a measuring glass with markings, pour in a 100 ml of water.

put in those balls in the measuring glass, check water level.

water level will rise according to the balls' volume (size) = positive displacement.

 

u should measure in term of mileage over litre of fuel comsumed.

 

for example:

if u travel 240 km and pumped 15 litre of fuel, 240/15 = 16km/l.

A member, BlackHonda, posted this in the thread of a member who is selling off a 2nd hand Broquet. Just thought of sharing it here... :)

unless i see some certified laboratory conducted experiment results that do show that under the "same loading conditions" that the Broquet works - no I will never buy...Sorry - being an engineer by training - i need to see proof of claims. in fact - the problem in Singapore is that there is not much legal implication if you did not fulfil your claims. In other countries - you'd have to prove your claims...I don't think its the same here....

 

That's the reason why I've only bought one brand of fuel additive here cos the manufacturer actually published the test report...so far - so good.

i'm using the STR2020 - it seems to work for my bike - got it from one of fellow forumer.

my experience is this:

Mitsubishi lancer - my half tank is typically 220km

when i added the stuff - it goes to about 250 thereabouts.

then i did not add it - back to 220 {just to test}

then added it back - back to 250

 

So i guess it works for my car - not sure about my bike though cos the start stop traffic makes it hard to gauge whereas for my car - my travel is basically weekend running around plus 2 trips from town to woodlands.

 

You guys have to decide for yourself.

So your half tank is how many liters?

If based on the fuel gauge.....Your half tank you pump today till full maybe 20l

today.

21l tomorrow and 22l 1 week ago and you concluded the result using your half tank...????:giddy:

Dont tell us you everytime pump half tank swee swee XXl....

Yeah we should decided ourselves when people used funny ways to prove it...

But from lots of review I found that most users got results for the first few tankful after which most would go back to same FC as before and they think they are more throttle happy....

Hmmm That y I think the coating covering the balls should have some effects to make the user happy for few tanks...

That's about it...
