Hi all,

Moreys diesel fuel additive claims to incease the cetane rating of diesel and therefore improves power and fuel consumption. Has any body used this and can verify their claims?

Regards,
Paul.

Have been using Moreys for a few years.

Good claim isn't it!

Is it true, be blowed if I know.

I think fuel quality makes more difference.

If I am in the right mood, and try hard, I think I can feel a difference.
Use it more for the antibacteria agent really.

I've been using it in my twin diesel engined boat, but heck I couldn't tell you if it works, I am simply a sucker for fuel addtitives..? I love the concept of tipping something into the tank and believing it will make things better. I couldn't prove or disprove Morey's claims..? I do buy it though..

I use it, but mainly for the claimed "biocidal properties".. hopefully this will deter any "bugs" which may decide to take up residence in the tank...

Does it work??? No idea really, but I've had no issues with filter clogging to date, so I guess I'll keep puttin' it in there occasionally...

I also use Chemtech "Diesel Power" for the same reason... (not at the same time, of course!!).....

I do know Chemtec works and you must add each time you fill, where FITCH works and you fit and forget and reap the benifits and I can verify it WORKS.

AHH yes Mr Fawlty , we now have Bill S caught out , his claims of better fuel consumption by his beloved Fitch are now really put into perspective, the super salesman uses a common as dogs balls chemical addativeto achieve his claims of better consumption ,,,Bill S is the S for stupid ??

MR Fawlty, Yes chemtec I used in my mechanical business for years but that was before I found just what fitch does and better,and yes fitch works heaps better without ever adding anything but the product once fitted.
What chemtec acheived was elimination of diesel bug growth,never had comments as to power increases,or smoke reduction but definetly stopped diesel bug growth or if you like algie growth .Where as thru exhaustive testing it is proven that fitch will reduce exhaust emissions by up to 50% increase power by 5%to 10% and increase econamy by up to 15%.and beyond.
As stated by some forum user some time ago this would dissapear well guess what it is still here and growing.
Now second point why do you think that the Indonesion gov would mandate that it be fitted to every car and truck in their country??
They I think belong to the KOYOTO agreement,where as the Gov in this country, well they are as usual slow on the recognition side of things when it comes to helping peoples pocket and health.

ALLOYc/t, For your information and to clear the air-FITCH is not a chemical nor is it
an additive and as for the S in BILLS it stands for SMART/////

Ok, this Fitch gizmo.... I have checked on the site & I can't find any technical disertation as to how it actually works... Do You have to occasionally clean out the accumulated gunk in it or what happens? BILLS, who has done the testing you mention and with what authority? Does it cause a bipolarisation of the fuel that allows water to be burnt. Or does it pass the fuel through a metallic cannister of magnesium alloy to improve its cetane rating? if this is the case then the Magnesium is going to disperse with the chemical action and at some stage would need to be replaced...

I'm not certain that the worlds second most corrupt government would be a good advertisement for any product and I can't think of any reason why they would use Fitch if it did not work unless of course the manufacturer gave them to them as a kickback so the Fitch claims must be genuine.

I still would like to know how exactly they work...
A mate mentioned that they cause Turbo's to blow up because they add so much power to the engine and they recon you can run a diesel on filtered used cooking oil with no engine mods if you have one fitted. Also I'm told that with a Fitch fitted your engine coolant does not need changing as frequently + a Fitch thins down the sump oil to make winter starting easier... Have you found this to be true BILLS, or are these people pulling my leg?

Mr fawlty, Where do I start?1/ After running fitch on my 80srs for 200,000klms I can only vouch for the fact that it will most definatly NOT harm any turbo as mine was turboed as is my now 100srs which was fitted imediatly on purchase. Engine coolant has no bearing on fitch,coolant is totally indipendant of engine oil. Incidently fitch will allow engine oil to last longer as it reduces contaminents entering the oil.If you own a diesel I will bet that after 15,000klms you cannot see the metal on the stick thru the oil sticking to it,I can on mine. Also proven that fitting fitch will increase power by 5to10%. Winter starting is easier because the centain rating of the diesel is increased by the structural change in the fuel cause d
by Fitch.And also fitch has magnesiam,to name some of the metals --silver-paladium. zinc-cerium-antimony-and contains also-aluminium, and a couple of others.But mr Fawlty it definately does not leach any of its propertys into that which it comes in contact with. Everything this product advertises are completely TRUE.
And send me your email address andI will forward you any information you require.
Ans as stated before my 80 srs went from 7.6klms per litre to 8.7 and sometimes 9.2.People make some strange assumptions on this product with out understanding what they are about. Hope this answers some of you questions. Anyone who doesnt use it with the rising prices of fuel?? well what can I say???

Regards BILLS. My email adress billfitch @1earth.net

Did some fuel economy figures with and without Morey's, no difference, so now use Chemtech, but not for the fuel economy benefits.

I like all Chemtech products, CT18 is a godsend. Chemtech Diesel Power is also something I use. Also use Nulon Diesel Injector cleaner and when I last pulled the injectors out of Cummins donks they were perfect.

Ok Bill S, you have made the claim

"Now second point why do you think that the Indonesion gov would mandate that it be fitted to every car and truck in their country??"

Fair enough, you've made a big claim there Bill. Can you provide us with a link to actually PROVE the above statement.
I've always been a sceptic of your products (and indeed, your) claims and nothing I've seen has changed my opinion in the least.
Regards Andrew.
