Easily best nanotechnology advancement!

I kn0w all history of all my cars and considered an extended family mechanic. This product had been handed to me by one of the automotive club members and close friends to try since I am a believer of all classic approach to the maintenance: religious oil changes at the proper interval. I have a hauling 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 truck in my shop that is starting to have a faint but very distinct rod knock and at 360000 miles it kind of close to expecting issues like that. As you could image, this truck is on the road a lot! So if it does not work, it would be definitely the best rig to try it on. So I picked up mail and applied as directed, the whole tube into a warmed up vehicle. Then I started a car, and it sounds just like it sounded before, no changes right away. Still tick-tick-tick-ing at me as before. I left it idling and returned back not in 15 minutes but forgot about it, and it idled for almost an hour. To my genuine surprise, the engine sounded much quieter!!! I took it for a spin and it is noticeably driving better! So for about a week of daily driving the mileage was slowly climbing up to where it was when the car was new. I think for total immersion they should be selling it with a new car smell :-) Now about a year after this car still running at 380000 and get comments from anyone who works for us and drives it on "nanotechnology" sticker. So, since then I have used it in every car we have with various results. Newest one being 2013 Subaru Outback where it reduced significantly but not eliminated oil consumption. We added it to our shop compressor oil (half of the ml mixed with oil), and it reduced pumping time from empty to full pressure by about 15%. But the fascinating thing was to use it in my AR-15. I put a dab on about 20 bullets and shot manually i can tell that accuracy increased and barrel warms up less.

Best in 50+ years driving

I am a driver with 50 years on the road and rebuild my first car engine with my dad when I was 14. Retired military veteran. I tried many additives and not received long-term satisfaction. Pledged early on Kickstarter because of DOD funding those guys got. Little thumb size syringe arrived in the mail in a crafty plain box. It did wonders to our V6 Camry with 310000 miles and two timing belts replaced. The car was in our family for a long time and our daughter got through college in it. After injection, it took about 3 minutes to notice that motor started to become quieter and after about a week of driving it turned into smooth running ant torque picked back up just like we first drove it off the lot! This stuff is the only one that gave such a strong effect on an old car. Returned and got treatment for a semi. Big syringe arrived with different color stuff. In my Cat engine, my MPG went from mid 5's to low 6's. The engine is much quieter and has way less vibration. Noticed that oil stays clear quite longer and less blowby. Looking forward for rear diff product!

14L Detroit

Put it in my semi truck with 1,000,000+ miles. Immediately noticed a smoother idle & noticeably less engine noise thru the transmission stick at highway cruising speeds. Seems to have a bit more power too. Haven’t checked fuel mileage yet, but am pleased with the results I’ve seen.

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): i used it in a kawasaki vulcan 2000 classic a 2007 125 cubic inch v-twin.
good for my machine

I had some lifter clatter and after 350 miles with tribotex in my oil the clatter quit and I noticed much more horsepower.

Nano tech rules

I put the Tribo Tech in my 2000 Jimmy it has 162000 miles , I noticed the engine is running quieter as for mileage it's about the same , I've put 200 miles on it since adding it to the oil . We'll see what happens at 500 miles I'll start checking mileage at that point . Nano technology is going to change the way we live for the better .especially in the energy field .This Tribo Tech is at the vanguard of this Nano technology and I believe in what you guys are doing , keep at it and I'm looking to see what you bring to the market next .

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): It's a 1995 GMC K3500 4x4 6.5 Diesel. It just turned 100,000 miles a week ago
Works Great

This is the 2nd rims I've used this stuff and I'm Amazed at the difference in my Motor. When I first seen this I thought it was a Scam but Im here to tell you its NOT.... When it quiets an old 6.5 Diesel it's Amazing stuff..I only wish it was a little easier on my Wallet but You pay for what you get

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): My 97 Dakota has 214,000 miles on it , My Intrepid w/new rebuilt engine 13000 mile as well as my Mower
Old New and what ever Tribo Tex WORKS!!

Put it in my 97 Dodge Dakota that has 214000 miles on it and was as noisy as a sewing machine. Since I used Tribo Tex it has gotten very quiet and I do believe my mileage is better. I know for sure that my oil pressure is much better at a cruse it is up between 40 and 60 now so I am Very happy with my purchase and will continue to use Tribo Tex. I also added it to my new rebuild 02 Dodge Intrepid that I built to give it more protection as well as my old Murray Riding mower I have everything I own running Tribo Tex so folks when you have a worn engine give it a try I did and I am Glad and Grateful!!

This stuff is awesome

I've added TriboTEX to harleys,trucks,cars,boats,lawntractors,farm tractors,kubota rtv,s gearboxes differentials and all I can say is "WOW" absolutely amazing the money I've saved in fuel and oil has more than paid for itself I have many customers who have had the same experience with it as well thank you for such a wonderful product cant wait to order more

Smoother, Quieter Running, (More to Follow)

I used a small-engine dose in my 2015 Kubota BX1500. Had some problems with the drive train and fuel pump (unrelated to engine performance) right after that, which limits the run time since then, but I do feel less vibration and noise. That is a real break when operating that small diesel.

A couple of months of real intense use over the rest of the heavy mowing season will really tell the tale, but the smoother running is very encouraging. I will update in late fall.

Noticed an increase in my gas mileage

Before i can only attain 18 MPG, after i used Tribotex i was able to attain 20.5 MPG

Amazing Product

I added TriboTEX to my 1999 Honda CR-V with over 200,000 miles on it. The TriboTEX has been in for 2 months now. I have to say I was shocked right after I put in and I am still shocked with the results. It drives like it is new again. I would recommend this to anyone that wants that new car feel again. You won't regret it.

So far so good!

My car is an Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4TB MultiAir using Shell Helix Ultra engine oil.

Used Tribotex and drove roughly 4000 km now. So far no issue with MultiAir engine.

While I do not have concrete data of fuel efficiency and decibel readings, but the engine did feel smoother after 2 days from injecting (roughly 150km of driving).

Hope it does reduce engine wear and tear on the long run!

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): 1998 Jaguar XJR 4.0 liter Supercharged. Now with 183,000 miles, and runs like new

I have a 1998 Jaguar XJR with over 180,000 miles. It was making a fairly obvious lifter noise, and was losing 1/2 a quart of oil every 2,500 miles. The first thing I notice after using the TriboTex treatment was, within one day of use, the lifter noise had diminished by half. I drove it on a 1,000 mile round trip from San Diego, to the Grand Canyon and back. During the trip I noticed the engine was running smoother, and seemed to have more power. After returning, I noticed there was absolutely no oil consumption, and the car was running like new. I am a true believer in the product.

As advertised

More power... improved gas mileage and a smoother running engine with over 355k miles and still running strong! Thank you TriboTex!

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): 2003 Hummer H2 w/ 6.0liter 113,000 miles
Didn't do anything for mileage or performance

2003 Hummer H2 with 113,000 miles. Did not affect performance or mileage in any way after over 1000 miles since application.

Great performance

I've used this product in my two gasoline engine cars and in my F-350 /7.3 Liter diesel. The big difference I noticed in the cars was, when it was time to change the oil, (5,000 miles) I checked the dipstick and the oil looked like I had changed it a week ago. I left it in and check it every 1,000 miles. So far, I'm at 8,000 miles and it's just starting to show signs of pollution. I'll probably change it at 9,000 miles. The truck, being diesel, can't be expected to remain as clean as the gas burners (and it hasn't) but, I went from about 11.5 mpg to 13.5 mpg. I highly recommend this product!

Engine ran cooler on my 1997 ford f350 diesel

4 banger

Hello well I put tribotex in my 1994 honda civic with a b18c1 gsr engine at the time the car was dyno at 527hp I notice that the car idle went down and felt smoother so I decided to have it retuned I did change the cams In it with skunk 2 tuner 2s from stock cams and off we went to the dyno. car did really well 813hp @50%duty cycle i been to the track several times drive it there and back street/track car running 10 sec passes going for 9s In. The next two weeks drain the oil several times to check for metal and found nothing oil always looks good and clean only down fall I see is that I use e85 and it thinner then gas and use 30%and it drips down to the oil so I have to chang my oil way before 500 miles so it'll get kind of expensive wish it was a bit cheaper so I'm not in it for gas mileage but more in it for the internal protection of the car and its seems to be doing a great job I do have 3 other cars I would like to try it for gas mileage at some point. (How about a sponsorship guys) or at least make it more affordable for us racers to use it every oil change or every other oil chang. Ty

So far, so good!

Added Tribotex to my '99 Sierra 1500 4x4's engine(305,000 miles on it) after oil change(mobil1). Waited for my brother in law Tom to witness. As was told to expect, engine was much quieter at idle within 5 minutes. Headed out for a 1100 miles road trip on that monday morning through mountain passes of Montana, Idaho and Washington. Pulling a flatbed trailer. empty headed west and with granite slabs on return leg. Noticed that the engine did not work as hard on the grades and that downshifts were smoother (not sure why that was) and engine sounded better at higher rpms ( over 3700 to 4500 rpm- which I have avoided like the plague). No noticeable increase in fuel economy yet but very happy with the smoothness of my 5.3L v-8. Will be adding it to 2004 Mercedes S430 at upcoming oil change (mobil 1). Can't wait to see what it does for the car.

The new 9th wonder of the world

I got my first two tubes back in June and within days could tell a difference in my 500 HP 07 Chevy Trailblazer SS LS2 and my son's 15 Camaro 3.6 4 cams. After hearing a friend say mine sounded different while pulling into a car show with out me even telling him about it, I knew this stuff was ligit. I ordered more for friends after telling them about it. And then when those ten were gone literslly with in 90 min I ordered even more. When you have 500 HP LS2 and you know how quick it feels from many years of driving it, then you pur in about a thumbsize amount in and all of a sudden you have another 15 HP out of nowhere, you know its good.
My son doing a "pokeman run" said he saw difference the first day on less fuel used for same route. Now its getting almost 26 mpg in city and went from 360 miles per tank ro over 414-420 something is working!!!!

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): 1969 va dune buggy stock 1600 engine
Great new discovery

I used tribotex in my 1969 vw dune buggy with a stock 1600 engine. I noticed a reduction in noise coming from the engine after about 520 miles. I wish I have a good sound meter so I could share the differance in engine chatter before and after I used tribotex . What a difference! I have some older toys I'm going to try it on. 1982 John Deere amt622 5 wheeler and a 20 year old ride on lawn mower.

Year, Make, Model and Mileage (e.g. 2005 Toyota Prius 179,000 miles): 07 Caddillac cts works for me noticed an increase in the take off slight increase in mpg motor seams to be doing as advertised also a Suzuki 800 Intruder only been 200 miles so far but im sure it will enhance the life of my motor im totally happy a satisfied customer
Works for me

07 Caddillac cts with 140k on the odometer immediately noticed at starting not any noise at all after a few hundred miles the pick up is quite noticeable a few tenths of a mile on the mpg to me i could care less about that as i drive at speeds of 80, 85 daily on the Hwy that could be why only a slight increase in mpg a heavy foot i have also in a Suzuki 800 Intruder only about 200 miles so far but im sure it will enhance the life of the motor im happy with TriboTex a satisfied customer will purchase again when & if needed with next vehicle

Tribotex is great!

Since it nanocoats the internal parts of the engine, I figured it would help, not that it needed it. I had nanocoated-ceramic coated the outside of my Vette so I thought it would only help the engine. Now my oil pressure is slightly higher, quicker smoother acceleration and peace of mind knowing it is protecting my engine.

Tried first time

Not as much improvement as hoped for.....but still think it was worth the add to the oil

High millege car

IT almost instantly quited my 2000 dodge neon with 210,000 miles on it. The compression in the cylinders have went up by 1 - 2 psi each after the 200 miles. Now I'm at 219,000 miles and it seems to be the same. There isn't any moticable change in gas millage but my car isn't consuming as much oil and the oil is staying cleaner. It wohld seem this product jas improved the seals with the cylinders and oil rings.
