Fitch Fuel

Anyone else heard of this product? I just watched some gasoline (LS7) dyno pulls with and without the product. 3 pulls each way to set baseline. The test results showed hp and tq improvements, also as much a 3 gallons per hour better economy. They have a kit for 91-04 power strokes listed on their site.

Fitch Fuel
91-04 Power Stroke


So REAL thing or just another ONE OF THESE?

Re: Fitch Fuel

Increased octane and increased cetane ratings.

Isn't that contradictory?

How many of these have I seen over the years?

But it showed the data on the screen and it did make a difference. Just like Banks, BullyDog, Superchip, etc the Fitch works just like they do how good it works I don't know but from what I have seen it does do what it claims.

Re: Fitch Fuel

just because you saw it on TV doesn't mean it's true, and I also think you missed Dave Whitmer's point, DIESELMAN.

We should call them and see if they will give PSN one to test, and have Dave or another member who keeps good MPG records test it.

If it works they should be willing to prove it, if not they can keep it. I'm not wasting my money on something that has a 99.9999995&#37; chance of being snake oil.

Re: Fitch Fuel

I watched the horsepower TV show and they got about 10&#37; decrease in fuel consumption. Don't remember the power increase. At $297 for our trucks it is really going to depend on your driving as to whether it is worth it. At that price I'd rather spend a bit more and get some really good programming, especially with a 7.3L an F5 with a good MPG tune would be a better option IMHO. This of course assumes it actually works.

On the other hand I am looking into this for my wifes Grand Cherokee, along with some other upgrades.
