What long term tests and real world experiences does the manufacturing/distributing companies have to prove their claims?

I would be skeptical about this but very hesitant to put it in my car. I use the best fuel for my car and I accept whatever fuel economy I get.

If you do go ahaed and use this formula, please let us know how things go.

If you don't I can certainly understand that.

All the best

Go to GNC and pick up some B-Complex and Womans One a Days. Foreal your car will have like 400 HP and after it works out the fenders will blow out, itll grow some quad pipes just like an M3. All for around $12.99 + Tax. Best of all you will get 98 Miles per Gallon.

you already know the answer to your own question, anytime that you think it's too good to be true, IT IS

With the 20% rise in gas prices in the past month the local news is always doing a piece on gas mileage. Our local news did tests with a bunch of pills, liquids, filters, air intake inserts, etc and found none of them increased fuel efficiency*. Some scientists they talked to even went as far as saying some of these items may cause adverse effects on an engine if used repeatedly over long term.

* The best increase was less than 1 MPG with a +/- 1 MPG margin of error.

I can see it now:

Guy1 looks over at guy2 filling his car with gas at the gas station. Guy2 then proceeds to put something in his gas tank. Guy1 looks over with curiousity and asks "what are you doing?" Guy2 responds, oh I'm just crushing up a vitamin to put in my gas tank--I've got to feed my car this vitamin at every fill up so it stays healthy and grows strong bones.

Maybe he could convert the methane from the Beano for alternative fuel.
