Yes - I have been using it for over a year now and it works exactly like it states. I have given out over 1,000 bottles for free (sorry all gone) and nobody complained it didn't work wonders. One of my writers had a backfire since the day he bought his Road King and with one bottle the backfire stopped. I myself found it gives better performance, a little more horsepower (maybe 4 or 5) and runs cooler and much smoother. I also get about 10-12% better gas milage as well. Just try one bottle and you can see for yourself. There are many Oxytane videos on Youtube so check them out and check out their website and links. You will be happy with the results.

Yes I can get you as much as you would like. I use it in both of my bikes and it works great. I convinced all my riding buddies to try it and now they all use it. If you would like to know more about it contact the creator of the product Mike Colburn <drfuelinstein@yahoo.com>.

Well maybe you should try some for yourself, and then you can see what we are talking about.

Home brews

FORMULA 1
Toulene
R+M/2...114
Cost...$2.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...94.2 Octane
20%...96.4 Octane
30%...98.6 Octane
Notes: Common ingredient in Octane Boosters in a can. 12-16 ounces will only raise octane 2-3 *points*, I.e. from 92 to 92.3. Often costs $3-5 for 12-16 ounces, when it can be purchased for less than $3/gal at chemical supply houses or paint stores.

FORMULA 2
Xylene
R+M/2...117
Cost...$2.75/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...94.5 Octane
20%...97.0 Octane
30%...99.5 Octane
Notes: Similar to Toulene. 12-16 ounces will only raise octane 2-3 *points*, I.e. from 92 to 92.3. Usually mixed with Toulene and advertised as *race formula*.

FORMULA 3
Methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether (MTBE)
R+M/2...118
Cost...$3.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...94.6 Octane
20%...97.2 Octane
30%...99.8 Octane
Notes: Oxygenate. Very common in octane booster products. Has lower BTU content than toulene or xylene, but oxygenate effect makes the gasoline burn better and produce more energy.

FORMULA 4
Methanol or Ethanol
R+M/2...101
Cost...$0.60 - $1.75/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...94.3 Octane (Methanol)
10%...94.7 Octane (Ethanol)
20%...Not Recommended
Notes: Methanol is wood alcohol. Ethanol is grain alcohol and found in Gasohol in 10% ratios. Both alcohols are mildly corrosive and will eat gas tank linings, rubber and aluminum if used in excessive ratios. Main ingredient in "Gas Dryers", combines with water.

FORMULA 5
Isopropyl Alcohol and Tertiary Butyl Alcohol
R+M/2...101
Cost...$0.60-$1.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...94.5 Octane
20%...Not Recommended
30%...Not Recommended
Notes: Similar to Methanol/Ethanol. Isopropyl Alcohol is simply rubbing alcohol.

MAKE YOUR OWN OCTANE BOOST

How to make your own octane booster (this is the basic formula of one of the popular octane booster products). To make eight 16 ounce bottles (128 oz = 1 gal):

100 oz of toulene for octane boost
25 oz of mineral spirits (cleaning agent)
3 oz of transmission fluid (lubricating agent)

This product is advertised as "octane booster with cleaning agent *and* lubricating agent!". Diesel fuel or kerosene can be substituted for mineral spirits and light turbine oil can be substituted for transmission fluid. Color can be added with petroleum dyes.

Anytime some product tries to baffle people with BS words like electrlyte chemistry, or ion charge or hydratatic electrify in the hydrocarbon, or the exenfeffer haventater of reemulator, then as the late Jim Jones said. " Lies! What can I do about lies?"

it's probably toluene, xylene, MTBE, MEK, Acetone, Naptha or some other straight out of a can BS that's all already in gasoline in the first place.
