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.
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!
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.
You're getting a 2 star rating for two reasons:
1) Your website is NOT user friendly making it EXTREMELY difficult to fill out this review. I had to go to a separate pad to write this note & then go back to your form! So far I have spent no less than ONE HOUR working on this!!
First I clicked on the link in the email that YOU sent me requesting that I review your product. Every time I got close to being finished it would stop at the point where it was asking me to give more details about my car -- which I did over & over again. I finally gave up and came directly to your website bypassing your email link & ran into the exact same problems!
What a complete waste of my time!!
and 2) Because it's too soon to tell.
Having said that, the only reason I took my valuable time to write this is as a courtesy to you because I do believe the product has potential (but I'm telling you here and now you damn well better fix your website because I'm sure dozens of other people have just given up and will never rate your product).
Now that I got that off my chest: I added it to my 2001 BMW 330ci convertible that has 105,000 miles on it, and in fact because it runs so well, considering the age and mileage, I hesitated buying the TriboTex because as they say, "If it ain't broke don't fix it!" But because I plan on keeping this car for many more years, I went ahead & purchased it & I must say I'm quite impressed! Right after adding it & going for a 40 minute drive I noticed the engine was running smoother, quieter, and seemed to have more power. Because I live on the small island of Oahu & I am retired, I have put less than 300 miles on the car since adding it. I will return and give a better rating as I put more miles on if it maintains the initial Improvement & if I experience more Improvement as I reach the mileage you say it takes for full effectiveness...AND if you've improved your website, as I will NEVER spend this much time doing a review again!
I had some lifter clatter and after 350 miles with tribotex in my oil the clatter quit and I noticed much more horsepower.
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 .
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
Before i can only attain 18 MPG, after i used Tribotex i was able to attain 20.5 MPG
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.
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.
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!
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!!!!
I added TriboTex to the 1.0L engine in my 2008 Smart ForTwo at exactly 129,500 miles on the odometer. I immediately noticed a significant difference in how the vehicle idled at a stop. It typically idled at 955 to 985 RPM. Wide idle range. After adding this stuff, it now idles smoothly at 950 RPM. When taking off, it's now more responsive, more sensitive to throttle input. It would typically jerk, as the throttle always seemed to hesitate a bit, but that no longer seems to be the case. I can creep along at a very low speed without hesitation or bucking. As of now, the car reaches an overall great saturation temp of 199° F. This is normal for these revved up little 3-bangers. I'm so very curious to see if this will decrease & what other things I may notice in the next four to five hundred miles. So far, I'm very impressed. I've been a professional automotive detail technician for many years, specializing in paint correction topped with nano ceramic & quartz coatings. I fully understand what it takes to develop chemical compounds of this nature & encourage you to try it for yourself.
Well seeing as the instructions state a very high mileage for using the product
It would be hard give a proper review but as long as I've had in my 1997 audi a4
1.8T I'm satisfied with its performance and we will see as times goes on.
I’m running it in my 1970 International with IDK how many miles. In 300 miles she stopped the start up knocking and has smoothed out considerably.
In my 98 jeep with 250000 miles. Exactly the same results.
And in my 99 cavalier. Same. IT WORKS
Within an hour of adding the Tribotex to my high mileage old work truck, the engine became noticeably quieter.
I was getting 45 MPG on the highway now it is around 50 MPG
I bought this Product 600 Mile Ago, and here what is Exactly what happen:
0 - 5 Mile: nothing happen
5 - 10 Mile: notice a massive different in my Engine Sound, it become so Quite
10 - 100 Mile notice a very good Engine respond and my car speed increased almost 20%
100 - now, a did notice a clear Improvement in my Gas per Mileage, i was fulling my tank every 10 days, now i am filling my tank every 13 days with same driving Routine.
I am very happy with this Product, and i already recommend it for the whole Family Members.
2003 Hummer H2 with 113,000 miles. Did not affect performance or mileage in any way after over 1000 miles since application.
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!!
Had a little tappet noise it took maybe 30 min and the noise was gone. Really works.
Used in 1993 GMC pickup w 275,000 miles, 2004 Sebring w 195,000 miles, and in my son's Jeep. All run smoother and quieter, still working on gas mileage. Thanks
I have a 2012 Audi A7 3.0 supercharged with 88k on it. Nothing has been wrong with the car and it runs great. I wanted to try this out just as a preventative maintenance thing. I went in with low expectations as these products seem to never really do anything. I put this in a month and a half ago with my oil change. I never really drive the car as my daily work commuter is my bicycle. I am at about 300 miles since that and WOW, my gas mileage around town is already so much better. I was averaging about 19 in town and 26 freeway. Now my in town is 23 mpg and the freeway is about 31 mpg. Haven't noticed much as far as horsepower as the car is fast AF already and I drive like a grandma. Going to be buying this for my 1992 Chevy Cheyenne 3500 with the 454 big block. I just use it for my camper and will post results on that. Would have no problem telling my mom to buy this product. Highly recommend!!!
