Update Aug. 10, 2000
I Ended up with the equivalent of a FREE full TANK OF GAS by using Bitron Products, gas conditioner in my gas on a regular bases.
The following chart shows the result of the round trip we made from Vancouver Island BC to Glengarry County Ontario between Mid May and Mid July 2000. On this trip we used Shell Bronze only. Most of the way east the truck was empty and on the way back west it was loaded and towing a loaded 4 x 6 U-Haul trailer with a rack, which was more than half full.
The base rate for mileage I have used for these calculations is 23.38 mpg, when no bitron gas conditioner was being used. If a lower base rate for mpg was used, then the net benefits would be even better.
On our trip East we averaged 30.46 mpg. an increase of 30.3% This spread varied from 3.06mpg to 11.12mpg, an increase of gas mileage from between 12.62% to 45.6%
On our trip back, with a loaded truck & loaded trailer, see photo, we averaged 26.26 mpg. an increase of 12.3% This spread varied from -.65 mpg to +5.92mpg, an increase of gas mileage from between -02.64% to 24.3%
The over all spread was from -2.64 % 23.73 mpg loaded to 45.6% 35.5 mpg empty.
I estimate that I had received a gross benefit [savings] of around 218.45 litres/ or $163.62 on our round trip to eastern Ontario. Even when taking the cost of the gas conditioner in, of 42 oz used, it still leaves over $93.00 in net benefit, which is in my case is the equivalent of a free full tank of gas. [128 litre gas tank]
The base rate mpg of new trucks similar to mine as shown on their infor sheet are
2000 Sierra 16.9 L/100km or 17 mpg City and 12.4 L/100Km or 23 mpg highway
2000 Sierra 15.9 L/100KM or 18. mpg City and 11.9 L/100Km or 24 mpg highway
2000 Sierra 4WD 16,2 L/100KM or 17 mpg City and 12.3 L/100Km or 23 mpg highway
2000 Sonoma 12.3 L/100KM or 23 mpg City and 8.4 L/100Km or 34 mpg highway
2000 Jimmy 16.9 L/100KM or 17 mpg City and 12.4 L/100Km or 23 mpg highway
2000 Yukon 17.3 L/100KM or 16 mpg City and 13.4 L/100Km or 21 mpg highway
These calculations as presented in the following charts are subject to correction, if wrong.

Update May 1st, 2000
Over the past winter, since late October 1999, I estimate that for each 3 ounces of Bitron Gas Conditioner I use with a tank of gas in my 97 GMC 1/2 ton truck, that I get an extra benefit of 8 to 10 dollars, a 100 or so extra kilometers per tank of gas for stop and go driving. This is a 12 to 15% increase in gas mileage. Thus for each 12 ounce bottle of Bitron Gas Conditioner [ for 4 fill up of the gas tank] I use, I get an extra benefit of about 40 to 45 dollars, which is more than the equivalent of a half tank of gas saved. Thus the saving of at minimum a full tank of gas every 2nd month over the last 6 months is equivalent to over 100 dollars even when the cost of the products is taken into account. In addition to the Gas Conditioner, I use the Engine Formulation in the oil, 2.4.6 in the steering and rear end and tire sealant in my tires.
Depending on the driving habits of the driver, the results you get will vary. The results I got since August of 1999 have spread from 10 to 12% to about 40% as a result of using these Birton Products.
There is no doubt that these Bitron Products will work for you like they have for me. Your choice is to take that risk and see how they do work for you.
You can now order these Bitron Products on line one bottle at a time. Check this out The Order page and see for yourself. Go to Bitron Products on line --
Since starting to use the bitron products consistently in my GMC 1/2 truck which is a few years old in early June 1999
[ I am using the bitron Engine Formulation, 2.4.6., gas conditioner & the tire sealant ]
my gas mileage as gone from 822.4 km on a tank of gas as of June 13, 1999 to 1135.7 km on a tank of gas as of Aug 5.1999, which is an increase of a little over 38% if my calculations are right.
This has increased my miles per gallon from about 23.3 to 26.279 mpg. This is just a result of running around the area between Curry Hill, Lancaster and Cornwall. One round trip to Dalkeith & Maxville. This is stop and go driving no long trips, Probably the longest trip would have been 60 to 90 km, not steady driving, but stop & go.
I know that as I use each new tank of gas the results will vary as far as what mileage I get goes. Using bitron gas conditioner along with the other bitron products has shown that a substantial increase in gas mileages can result. Where in the past, gas mileage averaged about 900 kms per tank of gas, it can now average in the range of around and even over 1100 + kms per tank of gas on daily running around with your vehicle.
The results will differ for each user of bitron products. The above results are what I got over the past 2 months by doing just that, using bitron products in my vehicle. My truck now runs smoother, quieter, cleaner , better as a result.
Have you checked your oil lately, what color is it on your oil dipstick , dark, black, grey or in between?? The color of my oil after at least 5100 kms since my last oil change is the colour of light to medium honey., basically just like new.
The following chart shows the result of the log I kept from June to September 1999.
