Fitch Fuel Catalyst
Gasoline and diesel fuel degrade during transportation and storage. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst restores fuel to its optimal state for more efficient combustion, which results in increased fuel mileage, more power, and reduced emissions. Cleaner burning Fitch Catalyst treated fuel also keeps engine oil cleaner for extended change intervals, and reduces fuel system maintenance.

The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is the product of Advanced Power Systems International (APSI), Inc. of Torrington, CT. The company was founded in 1994 by a famous race car driver and inventor John C. Fitch, with the objective of creating a product that would both positively affect the environment and provide an economic benefit to the consumer. Originally conceived to provide gasoline stabilization, the production version of the Fitch Catalyst offered much more.
Many fuel treatments on the market promise better fuel mileage, but they must be added to every tank full of fuel, where they are consumed along with the fuel. Whatever mileage increases you may realize are more than offset by the cost of the additive, which must be continually replenished. Not so with the Fitch Catalyst. The Fitch is a true catalyst, which is a substance that induces a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent change. With the Fitch Catalyst, you pay once and enjoy savings thereafter.
The Fitch Fuel Catalyst has been reviewed and tested by national automotive and recreational vehicle publications like Four Wheeler, Sport Truck, Muscle Car Review, Diesel Power, Diesel Tech, and others. Results varied, but generally all reported gains in fuel mileage, as well as improved throttle response, increased power, reduced emissions, and resistance to engine knock. The consensus opinion: unlike some devices that promise the world and deliver significantly less, the Fitch Fuel Catalyst works as claimed.

I was initially skeptical of the claims, but I bought one with hope. Was extremely easy to install (about 20 min). I drive a full size Chevy truck. If I keep my foot out of the throttle, on the highway, I see about a 3-mpg increase (not much in the city). When I put my foot in the throttle, there is a noticeable increase in power. Also, my idle has never been so smooth.

Very easy to install on my Chevy after I find good position for mounting. After I installed the Fitch Fuel and I can feel my Engine idle smoother than before. Recommend!

I was looking for ways "How to save a Fuel". My "beast" love to eat and drink so much, I had to put him on a diet :) This Fitch Fuel Catalyst really works, I gave it a week to see how much fuel I was saving. And it was between 2 to 3 mpg. I installed it in the engine compartment driver's side radiator cover. You will need a special tool to remove the fuel clip and once your remove that, I just had to remove one screw on the top right side of the radiator and replaced it with a longer screw. Total install took about 25 min. I'm happy.

Had it a few weeks on my Jeep Wrangler 1995. Seemed to give a more power and smoother engine performance. Don't notice the fuel to go as quickly as before, need a month or so more to get the exact mileage, but sure seems to have improved.

I am a long time believer in Fitch. Been using the pellet type for years now. Read all the hype and one day just decided to order some and try it for myself. It works so well I have hundreds and hundreds of dollars of these things in use right now in all manner of fossil fuel burning items, although this is the first time I've ever ordered this canister type for a vehicle. I don't look at Fitch as a mileage thing. To me, it's simply a "best fuel you can possibly burn" kind of thing. I'm sure there's some extra mileage in there somewhere, but what I like is looking at the exhaust of all my stuff (lawn mowers, generator, snowmobiles, kerosene heaters, weed whackers, my truck, etc.) and seeing CLEAN mufflers and CLEAN burning kerosene heaters and CLEAN tailpipes, as well as CLEAN carburetors and CLEAN fuel injectors. Was talking with a good friend of mine a few years back about Fitch. I took him into my garage and showed him the business end of my kerosene space heater (the kind that looks like a jet engine). His exact words upon seeing my totally clean kerosene heater that I use as my sole source of heat in the garage during the winter was, and I quote, "Holy sh**!" :) Needless to say the man is a Fitch man, today. :) If the fuel is burning so much cleaner with Fitch than without it you just know you're squeezing every ounce of energy from whatever it is you're burning. :)
I have been using these for years. They are certainly not just a gimmick. I cannot verify better mileage as I typically use them for Powersports, Motorcycles, or mowers. They keep the fuel much fresher. No varnish, no bad smells. Especially with ethanol in the gas, it is obvious how much easier things start after storage. CARiD had a great price for the 8 pack making them even more economical to use.
