Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst do?

The Fitch® Fuel Catalyst reformulates commercial grade fuel allowing for more complete combustion thus allowing you to extract more energy per gallon. This offers two immediate benefits 1) greater efficiency, reducing the amount of fuel needed to do the same work and/or 2) increased performance particularly in terms of increases in horsepower and torque.  Because combustion is more complete, pollution such as greenhouse gases are also significantly reduced.

What kind of fuels does the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst work on?

Gasoline, Diesel, Fuel Oil and Propane.

In what sort of applications? 

A variety of applications ranging from automotive to recreational power sports, from power generation to commercial and recreational marine as well as commercial and residential heating.

Will the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst hurt my engine or machine? How will it effect the manufactures warranty?

It will not hurt your engine or machine and has no impact on your warranty. The Fitch® Fuel Catalyst simply pre-treats and improves the fuel. It does not interfere with any mechanical or electrical components found in your engine or machine. It has no moving parts and is thus maintenance free.

How is the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst different from an additive?

An additive is a chemical added to the fuel and must be replaced with every refill. The Fitch® Fuel Catalyst is a permanent fuel treatment that works for years after initial installation. 

HOW long will it work?

Commercial grade units are warranted for 500,000 miles or 10,000 operating hours.
Non-Commercial Grade units are warranted for 250,000 miles or 5,000 operating hours.

Why don’t oEMs such as GM, Chrysler, Ford, Yamaha, etc. install the Fitch® Fuel Catalyst on the vehicles and machines they make?

Some do, but most don’t. OEMs don't typically add parts to the assembly process unless it saves money or they are required to add them because of specific regulations. OEMs must meet certain standards set forth by the EPA and other regulatory organizations. When determining MPG window sticker numbers, the EPA requires the automotive OEMs to test on a certified lab created fuel such as Indolene which are ultra pure as opposed to the refined fuels consumers use. These purest certified fuels are too expensive to mass produce and are not equivalent to what consumers use.
