I ran into Brian Schubert, owner of BnD Automotive
, at the LX Dyno Day in Akron last weekend. Brian manufactures specialty synthetic oils (specifically for the engine type and desired useage) and fuel catalysts (boosts octane and provide lubricity in the upper cylinder chamber). Lots of interesting reading on this website.
One of the Dyno'd R/T Chargers had put in his oil and his fuel catalyst and pulled 4+ HP more and 6+ Torque vs. a previous run without the stuff. Another R/T added the catalyst for the trip home (100+ miles) and averaged 2 mpg more vs. the trip to the place... and in the week since he told me his average around town has gone up at least 1.5 mpg.
I know... I know... snake oil and wooly grass. But this stuff is used by the military and NASA, and THAT has made Brian a very happy SRT8 (and other muscle cars) man.
So... check out the website. I'm going to go at least one round with his oil and a total of 190 gal of treated fuel between both cars, and see what kind of performance I get. The first test will be next weekend, when we take a road trip around WV in the H.E. The next test will be when I take the "her" 300C to Chicagoland for a family wedding and give it to Gary Kouba for a full in/out detailing.
