Fuel saving additives are growing in popularity and importance as gas prices rise and our country is compelled to face the fact that a continued dependence on foreign oil will most likely eventually compromise our national security. Every citizen is eager to do their part to increase the fuel efficiency of their own vehicles - particularly since gas prices are expected to reach new highs this coming summer and are not predicted to come down any time soon after that. However, when you are selecting among fuel saving additives it is important to factor in some important considerations before placing that first “shot" in your gas tank.
Some fuel additives can void your car's factory warranty. Automobile manufacturers claim that fuel additives alter the way that car engines work and can damage the delicate machinery of the transmission and engine. Whether or not this is accurate, it is certainly sufficient cause for them to void your warranty. If you are driving a new or leased vehicle then you need to select a fuel saving additive that does not visibly impact your engine, but rather operates entirely within the fuel and fuel tank without leaving traces behind.
Many companies have recently introduced fuel additives that have not been sufficiently tested in an effort to get in early on this burgeoning market. These additives can severely harm your vehicle and they may even lower your gas mileage rather than improving it. Furthermore, some of the gasses that are created by these “last minute" fuel additives are actually worse for the environment than the greenhouse gasses and exhaust fumes expelled by a car that has not been treated at all. Make sure that you select a fuel additive that has a history of testing and success. Even if it is not the least expensive option it will save you money fast as your mileage climbs.
Consider your own profit margin. If a fuel additive works, you are likely to get excited about the product and tell your friends. The best case scenario for this situation would be if you could make some money while spreading the news about a great new product. Most fuel additives currently rely largely on word of mouth to promote their products, but few have a full fledged affiliate program that helps you make money when you put your reputation on the line. Savings are great, but they are even better when they are supplemented by a potentially job-replacing income. Make sure to investigate the resale and affiliate options for fuel additives before committing to one brand.
