The ever-increasing cost of gasoline has, and will continue to, spawn new and creative ways to reduce fuel consumption and ultimately save $$ at the pump.
CMH Industries Inc. of Detroit Lakes, MN has developed a concoction that carries some serious claims that if true, offer some immediate help to ease the sting of the current energy debacle.
CA-40g, initially developed for farmers and their giant combine tractor engines, claims to:
- Increase Fuel Efficiency
- Improve Lubricity
- Reduce Harmful Emissions
How does it work?
Calcium is the second best metallic lubricant on the planet, and is used in the best greases. It’s also one of the major components of CA-40. The problem has been that no one has ever been able to keep calcium suspended in fuel. Until now.
CA-40 keeps calcium in suspension through a patented blending process. When CA-40 is added to gasoline or diesel, the calcium bonds to hydrocarbons within the fuel, causing it to burn more efficiently. What this means to consumers is increased fuel efficiency, increased lubricity, and a decrease in harmful emissions.
I have been unable to find any independent studies on the product, but have found a few forums (one of which was located on the Ed Schultz Message Board) with some satisfied customers and their stated % gains in fuel economy.
CA-40 isn’t cheap –1 quart will run you about $35.00. But since it’s concentrated and mixed with a tank of gas, 1 quart will treat roughly 2000-2500 gallons of fuel. Not too shabby.
