How Does It Work?
The EF-TABS™ combustion catalyst uses the fuel (gasoline, E85, diesel or biodiesel) as a carrier to deliver it into the combustion chamber of the engine where it actually does its work. The EF-TABS™ formulation actually contains the precursor of the active catalyst. The actual EF-TABS™ combustion catalyst is activated by the burning of the fuel containing the EF-TABS™ and it then develops a nano coating on the pistons, the head and the spark plugs.
The micro-catalytic coating will appear once the conditioning period of the engine is completed (2-4 tankfuls). This nano film is required to be present in order to achieve MPG increase.
Since the temperatures and pressures inside the combustion chamber are so high, it is necessary to continue using EF-TABS™, after the conditioning period, at a continuous use rate of one EF-TABS™ per 24 gallons.
Once this catalytic coating is developed on the pistons, the head and the spark plugs by the conditioning period, it provides several benefits. First and most important, it makes the fuel burn faster early in the combustion stroke. This directly increases efficiency of the engine and reduces the peak in cylinder temperature. The lower peak temperature is likely to increase engine life because one of the factors causing engine component failure is high temperature fatigue.
A second benefit of this micro combustion catalyst coating is that it prevents carbon and most lube ash deposits from accumulating on the piston and head. This reduces the octane appetite of the engine (allows you to use regular fuel rather than premium to avoid knock and pinging).
A third benefit is the reduction of ring land deposits, which improves ring seal and reduces excessive lube oil consumption. Finally, the catalytic coating also develops in the catalytic converter and on the outer housing of the oxygen sensor. Just like in the cylinder, it provides a protective micro-catalytic coating that protects both parts from carbon deposits, improves their durability, and can provide a long-term improvement in emissions reduction.
There are absolutely no negative effects, but it is important to remember that the micro-catalytic is necessary for the performance of the EF-TABS™. Since most automobile engines burn fuel at over 99% efficiency, it is impossible to improve the completeness of combustion. However, EF-TABS™ develops a catalyst coating that makes the fuel burn faster so a more efficient burn is produced.
In an automobile not using EF-TABS™, as much as 75% of the energy in the fuel you buy at the pump is basically wasted. It is a scientifically proven fact that heat recovery is the only practical way to improve gas mileage with a modern vehicle. The process produced by the EF-TABS™ does use more of the heat generated and the catalytic process releases the heat faster. The use of EF-TABS™ is a practical way to improve mileage, increase power, extend engine life and reduce in great levels the overall output of smog emissions (CO, HC and NOx) of the machinery.
