The most number of callers about Tufoil come from Subang Jaya. They say traffic jams are very bad for engines!!

One user in a small town was worried that his engine may crack by virtue of the "great power gain" he experienced for the first time.

A Lotus Elise downed in 4 bottles of Tufoil at one of those Merdeka Day races. Too bad, the participant did not win cos' the radiator leaked midway.

J.W. Lessing in " Become a Successful Truck Operator " a Business Guide quoted the following:

" A very good friend and I found a way to stretch the time between engine overhauls. My friend ran his Cummins 400 one million miles without an overhaul and I ran my Caterpillar ( 4.25 Cat ) 800,00 miles without an overhaul. "
" How did we do it ? " Tufoil ( 1:10 mix ) ."

Anyone? We invite all those who have experienced incredible things about Tufoil, things beyong our comprehension but nevertheless TRUE to share in these pages.

Happy Motoring.

How much fuel savings can one get with the use of Tufoil? In all our years of handling this product, the feedback or grapewine chat says it is from 0% to 15%.

However there is this guy with a Volvo 240GL who regularly drives overland to Cambodia for business. Before, the petrol bill was RM 700-800 per trip. After using Tufoil, he says it is only RM 480.

One mechanic in Kajang got a RM 10 tip from a Mercedes owner during the test drive after putting in a bottle of Tufoil. The owner kept exclaiming " engine banyak ringgan". That was 4 months ago.

Last week, the tip was RM 20 this time from an Unser ownner.

Shows that there are people out there who are very passionate about engines.

A Lexus 4WD owner, age nearing 70 said to me early this year at a workshop in Damansara Jaya that Tufoil was like "opium" to him now.

It seems the first time he had Tufoil in the engine, he drove at 165kph to Singapore. He said he never felt so thrilled before.

Perhaps, somebody can organise a street shoot out for senior citizens at Sepang!

What say you, Tom?

Do lady drivers use Tufoil ?

About 3 years ago I stumbled on a lady executive who told me that she and her group of lady friends have been using Tufoil during oil changes for years already.

So, you man better watch out. You could be making a mistake by flashing those lights at the back of their cars not knowing what they have so diligently pepped-up in front.

Tufoil mixes well with both mineral oils and synthetics.

The use of Tufoil with engine oil will transform the resultant oil into a highly efficient engine treatment with the lowest coefficient of friction known to mankind. This reading is 0.029 and has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records since 1996.

The result was obtained after tests were conducted by the National Bureau of Standards in USA, a government agency much like our SIRIM.

Tufoil-treated engine oils move and flow very fast on account of the reduced oil drag. Engines love it. Camshafts must dance to deliver the horses.

Early one morning when a parts dealer was about to open his shop for business, he found a man waiting in front of the shop.

The parts dealer could recognise the person as the one who had bought a bottle of Tufoil from him the previous day. Anguish and anxiety siezed the shop owner as he reckoned this particular customer may have a greivance or was unhappy about something.

Politely and very meekly the shop owner asked if the Tufoil was of any good. The reply was that it wasn't good at all. But what surprised the shop owner was that, he asked for two more bottles!! Beats me.

Just add Tufoil together with your engine oil at the next oil change.

Tufoil when added with conventional engine oil will transform the resultant oil into a highly efficient engine treatment that makes engines perform better.

Engines run cooler. Starts easier. Better power and acceleration. Saves fuel. Quieter. Smoother. Lower emissions and maintenance.

Tufoil has been around for almost 30 years.

It has remained in the Guinness Book of Records since 1996.

Tufoil is the brainchild of eminent American lubrications engineer Mr. Franklin Reick who has been inducted into the Inventors' Hall of Fame.

Need we say more?

Use one bottle Tufoil 237ml together with 4-5 litrs of engine oil. A 5% - 10% mix has proven to be effective in fighting friction. There is no need to go beyond this. When you use Tufoil with every oil change you will notice that progressively the engine becomes very efficient. From experience, after about 3-5 oil changes, the engine seems to rev effortlessly.

The Tufoil user is one who knows that there is available in the market something really good for the engine and is determined to get it.

They say you can never drag a horse to a pond and force it to drink. Get it!

To some users Tufoil means alot to them. We noticed quite a number of ZTH members fit this bill.

Shawn ... I do not recommend a 0w oil for your snail man. Get minimum 10w if you must 15w is better ... you can blow the seals of your turbo coz I know you got a heavy foot dude...

Nearly 10 years ago, I had to be in Japan to negotiate a piston ring deal for my employer. The manufacturer is world reknowned for their quality and is into OEM for cars and bikes.

Although, I was only buying piston rings for bikes, the chairman of the Japanese company asked me a peculiar question.

" Why are Malaysians buying so much piston rings for cars ? " It seems the volume of rings coming into Malaysia was just unbelievable!! And in Japan there is really no market for rings at all.

Can somebody tell the chairman why ??

Exactly how fast do piston rings wear out ?

Over a year ago at a workshop I had bumped into a Waja owner. According to him and the foreman, during his second oil change while the car was still new, he was unlucky to have used up a bottle of branded semi syn oil which he suspected was fake. The car had to be overhauled at only 10,000 km!

Heat from high tropical temperatures and daily jams kills most engines. By the way, the luxury limousine -for- hire operator for hotels in KL's golden triangle changes oil at 5,000km and is starting to use Tufoil for better protection.

Last month I spotted a brand new white Nissan Frontier Diesel 2.5 SUV ( probably WMD 4061 or something like this ) in front of my boneshaker at Segambut. At the back of this vehicle is an oval shaped decal made of soft transparent nylon like the rectangular Perodua badge you see at the back of the car.

Now this decal is already about 10 years old. Yes, it's is a Tufoil decal and the vehicle owner proudly displayed it at the back for all to see. Obviously, he must have been a satisfied Tufoil user or that he just loved the product. To this Frontier owner, I salute you for your great faith and pride in Tufoil.

There are also many who are using it on the quiet. Just an example, there is an ex-government civil servant a name most certainly known to all households in Malaysia regularly using Tufoil on his Mercedes E280 and that of all his children and grandchildren's cars. This Raja whom I had met at a workshop is such a humble person although his signature struck fear in the hearts of many.

Can Tufoil gives more mileage per tankful of petrol for a Waja ?

There is this Waja owner who keeps telling me that the amount of petrol consumed for a trip from Johore Baru to KL is only one quarter of the fuel gauge indicator i.e. the first marking.

Obviuosly, I do not believe in his claims although I have never driven a Waja or even sat inside one. But he is adamant about it.

His name is Sallehudin.

Before, he used to ride a RM 120,000 Honda Gold Wing with a bottle of Tufoil added to the crankcase. Yesterday, I realised he has since switched to a brand new Kawasaki 1200 with 4 pistons. Now this bike has also Tufoil in the engine. This is no surprise to you and me by now. The most interesting thing is that you will find on this 250 kph midnight blue street burner, Tufoil stickers, both big and small ( more than a dozen ) all stuck on almost every inch of the painted surface and also on the clear plastic rain shield.

Very passionate is this easy rider for Tufoil that he has to do it in the street. Next time should you chance to glance at this bike at the traffic lights, do know that this is a cool guy who will readily shake your hand and tell you of his love for Tufoil. Otherwise, how do one explain the many stickers on the brand new paintwork?

Two weeks ago I caught Mahmoud buying a bottle of Tufoil.in a retail outlet He is an expatriate lecturer in robotics at a local university.

Mahmoud has already used several bottles of Tufoil in his Proton. His impression? The car can be started at 4 a.m. and immediately be driven away with use of Tufoil. Before, he had to wait and warm up the engine otherwise the car will be sputtering and jerking madly as it is being driven away.Mahmoud also mentioned of increased torque, smoothness and fuel economy.

How does one describe the smoothness of an engine enhanced with Tufoil?

Mr. Franklin Reick, Tufoil inventor and world-renown lubrication scientist has this to say about the smoothness.

" ..... it's like a hot knife cutting through butter "

Anybody with something interesting to say or share?

Use the viscosity that is most suited to your engine condition. Play by ear as the situation allows you. Otherwise, follow the car handbook. Because no 2 engines are similar, it is very hard to recommend a standard viscosity type for a car model.

Yes I know that, just wanna to know any particular oil suit tufoil.

Should buy a cheaper than Mobil 1 to use with tufoil?

Can extend the oil change interval after adding tufiol?

Actually I oredi added tufoil in my engine today...the lube is very thick...like glue..
and I am using full syn 5w50, lets see got difference in the next couple of days.

For our own cars, a semi syn with Tufoil will do. But our all time favorite is still a 10W30 oil.However, it is important to stress here that this is a very personal opinion for this viscosity may or may not give you the best result you had hoped for.Over 10 years ago, when we were pushing US-made 10W30 oils, mechanics were adamant that these oils were only for Kancils. You will need plenty of luck to find a Mira in America.Besides, new BMW cars are now into 10W30 and Alpina, 0W30.

On oil change intervals, we change at 5000 - 6000 km.There are those who change beyond this mileage because their engine oil is still clean or that they still feel the oomph with Tufoil inside.Play by ear and always never failing to check dipstick levels.

Some 3 months ago, thieves broke into a black Perdana Turbo and stole the expensive stereo and even the oil catch tank was not spared. There were 3 bottles of Tufoil in the boot. It's takeaway, too. They too are well-informed or must have read the threads here.

Today we received a registered mail from Kampar with a bank draft for RM 60. The letter was typed in the old way using a manual typewriter, a dinosaur of yore! The writer is just asking for a bottle of Tufoil to be sent to him.

In the letter he has recorded that this is the 6th bottle that he has purchased from us. All previous purchases were accompanied by the usual reistered letters done with a manual typewriter. Kudos to you Mr. Chang for all your confidence and loyalty on Tufoil. Mr. Chang ( we have never met him ) we guess is senior in age and the manual typewriter indeed gives a clue on his occupational pursuit. Yes, he is a Petition Writer and we are very proud of him indeed. For those of you in Kampar, do check him out. There are many stories waiting to be told and Tufoil will be one of them most certainly.

The previous record for the largest quantity of Tufoil purchased by an individual for own use was 18units of the 8 oz. bottles. He is a senior citizen who loves motoring a lot more than the younger ones.

Recently, this record was broken by an expatriate retired aircraft engineer under MM2H who purchased 8.28 litres. The latter had been a faithful Tufoil user for over 10 years and according to him, his diesel pick-up truck runs like " benzene " with Tufoil on-board! A big thank you, Mr. Alawi.

Yesterday at a shopping mall in Setia Alam, I chanced upon a box of Tufoil with the opening top flap ripped off. And on closer examination, the black bottle was still inside. However, much to my amusement the Tufoil vinyl sticker stored inside was taken away. Interesting indeed. Whoever, the brave and over-excited enthusiast, I am willing to keep some stickers for your fancy. There is no need to do crazy stuff like this for others will just not buy this bottle even though it is new and unopened.

She ran a successful workshop for some 25 years in Kajang and felt it was time to pass this business over to someone else. Just 2 months back she sold lock, stock and barrel the complete ultra moden service centre together with all the spare parts and tyres, equipment etc while the old staff continues their service with the new owner.

Guess what? Although she surrenderd ALL the spare parts and machines, she took with her all the unsold bottles of Tufoil for own use. We salute and would like to thank her for her support for so many years in the Kajang area. Happy retirement, our old customer.

Wednesday Nov 14 was really mesmerising. The boss of an auto parts store in PJ called 3 times for Tufoil emergency stock replenishment. We salute you, particularly the Tufoil purchaser who had to wait a long time for the stocks to reach the store. Thank you very much for your unshakeable loyalty to the brand. It surely makes our day. Thanks for the support.
