I added this product to my 2011 F150 4X4 with 157K miles and my 2012 F150 Lariat with 87K miles. I could tell no difference in their performance or mileage.
I kn0w all history of all my cars and considered an extended family mechanic. This product had been handed to my by one of the automotive club members and close friends to try since I am 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. Than 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 completely 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 a 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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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!
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 .
So, with potentially nothing left to lose in my 2000 Ford Focus ZX3. Rough idle poor MPG probably a slew of existing problem that did not get fixed. I heard about TriboTEX Believe it or not on a Facebook add. Watch their YouTube video and thought what can it hurt. I had immediate improvement that were slightly noticeable, followed by substantial improvements as the break in period came to a close 25-39 MPG I expect it will be a bit early for the wow to wear off one tank of gas results in MPG has a large margin of error But I am not far from the second go round. I am very satisfied with what I see so far, The MPG was a bonus I was just looking for a smoother ride i.e. less vibration during idle. And that was a complete success.
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
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.
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!!
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.
I added TriboTEX to my oil trying to curb the oil consumption of engine it was using 3-4 quarts every 3000mi. I added the product and drove 1000mi and had to add a quart of oil yesterday so I am wondering if my money was well spent also I haven't noted a change in oil pressure to the positive and I definitely haven't seen any change in gas mileage. My eng has always been quite so I can't comment on improved engine quietness.
Had a little tappet noise it took maybe 30 min and the noise was gone. Really works.
I cant really tell much from the application of this product in a 2.0 GTI. Fuel seem the same, idle noise seems the same, and overall this product likely works but living in Los Angeles its hard to say when you spend most of your time sitting in traffic.
2010 Hyundai Accent GLS; 1.6L engine, 134,000 miles. About 28 mpg at time Tribotex was added.
No changes have been noted in the first 600 miles .
I have a 2014 Chevrolet Impala...I've driven now about 3800 klm with the product... I find my engine to run very smooth and quiet, very quiet.....I used to average 10.1 liters per 100 klm before now I average 9.2 liters per 100 klm.......I thought I would get a better gaz mileage average than that with the product.....a bit disapointed with that.....but I must admit that my engine is very very smooth and quiet, ..can barely hear it running.....I give 4 stars because of the gaz mileage savings.......this product is good I'm sure and on the long run will keep my engine running smoother and quieter for a longer period of time.
I bought this for my 2005 Subaru Outback with 140K miles. It has a fairly bad knocking noise that didn't seem to get better with this product. Maybe I was expecting a miracle but unfortunately, I have not noticed any difference 45 days after including it with my oil change.
I have put the product in as advised and driven over 3000 miles since with no real improvement to my 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS in gas savings or performance.
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!!!
