One of my best friends gave me a few FFI MPG-CAPS to try in my 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse. I bought the car new 09/99, had 65,000 miles on it and NEVER had any fuel system problems. As suggested, I added 2 pills to a tank full of gas. I immediately saw a boost from 17mpg in town to approx. 24 and car seemed to have more power too. Thus, I was happy and continued to add 1 pill to each tank of gas.
After the 4th tank of gas, my car started to act like it had vapor lock. If you're not familiar with the term, it means your vehicle suddenly loses all or partial power as if your gas pedal has been disconnected. This can be VERY scary & dangerous if you are on a freeway like I was and stuck in a center lane going 15 or 20mph while people whiz around you at 75+.
I'll spare you all the details. Despite my friend swearing that the FFI pills have never caused anything like this, I stopped using the pills. The vapor lock slowly disappeared. After 3 or 4 tanks of gas without the pills, the car seemed back to normal and I never used the pills again.
Two weeks ago I had to take my car for annual smog test required by Nevada before you can renew a tag. My car failed the tests, which it has never failed before. The report indicated fuel system problems. Immediately took the car to a state licensed repair shop.
Two days and $1427 later I was given a receipt stating that contaminated fuel may have caused the damage. Reminder: Since I bought the car, I've never added anything to the gas tank except the FFI pills and never had any fuel system problems. Bottom line: I am now preparing a lawsuit against FFI.
FFI's response to me has been the same hype posted on their website and mimicked by their sales drones. However, NOWHERE on their website do they state that they've never had any reported problems. Thus, I am posting this everywhere so that other people who have experienced similar problem(s) can contact me.
I would especially like to hear from Patrick in Saint Charles, Missouri, since I believe my damage may prove his theories to be correct.
