    Default Question about the Fitch Fuel Catalyst?

    Looking at the claims that this device makes, everyone should have one. Every auto maker should be putting them in as standard equipment to get the mileage numbers up. All the environmental groups should be on the bandwagon to get them installed on every motor vehicle. Am I the only one that does not have one installed?

    I don't have one either. I've been thinking about about it but would like to hear from a real person that has used it and get real life feedback, not just the claims from the manufacturer.

    I was going to order one from crazy4ink, but then life got a little busier and I pushed it aside. I will get one though, I just want to get it when I will have the time to install it.

    I think dragline bought one for his JK. Maybe he can post up more info about any gains he has received from using it.

    We do sell Fitch Fuel Catalysts. I am running one on my own Jeep, my wife's Jeep and my Lightning. We have installed them on the following vehicles:

    2001 Miata
    2001 Grand Cherokee
    2004 Jaguar XJR
    2005 Expedition
    1988 Full size Blazer
    2004 Grand Cherokee
    1997 F150

    Everyone has had positive results and is seeing an average of 3 mpg gain. On vehicle that use premium fuel, people have seen numbers a little higher.

    If you are interested in one, please give me a call or shoot me a PM.

    Thanks!

    I'm running one, on my 3rd tank of gas. Right now , no gain for me yet as I have yet to get a good handle on the MPG due to mods made to the Jeep right before I installed the Fitch. I added a Wild Boar cargo rack, Shrockworks sliders and took off the Airaid CAI so it is had to tell. I'm going to put the CAI back on and run a few more tanks threw it and see.

    Dragline,
    You have a few things going on at once. Please post your estimate when you have a better feel for the mileage change.

    Will do Henry, as soon as I collect more data. Did a trip to VA beach and back to Richmond and was pulling 17-18 MPG. I have my MPG laid out on a spreadsheet since I bought the JK. I don't trust the computer as I find it is erratic and is usually 1 to 2 MPG HIGHER than my manual calculations. John

    I know with my own personal Jeep with 39.5" Iroks, I gained 1.5 mpg. I didn't change my driving style to help get those numbers either.
