I have been reading some literature on Ethos Fuel Reformulator and they are touting it as increasing gas mileage by 10 to 15 percent. Has anyone tried this product? How did it work and would you recommend it for RV use?

I smell a troll....
Ethos Fuel Reformulator is nothing more than probably snake oil and bid to get you into a MLM scam.

Check out this site for more info Make Money Fast Hall of Humiliation

Humm... maybe some Acetone, Lacquer Thinner and some Marvel Mystery Oil and we call Oemy's Wonder Fuel Booster. $10 a pint and it will treat 100 gals of gas and give untold MPG.

Ethos FR has an interesting writeup in www.worldwidescam.info - These bottoms feeders have been selling this snake oil under other names.

HERE is a link to a guy who has done a a little research on this stuff and it's previous names.

Speedy Turtle,

Although I'm an Ethos distributor, I don't really sell it anymore. It has improved mileage on all but one of my five vehicles, and it has excellent lubrication properties when used in the crankcase. It also has been proven to reduce emmissions.

The down-side....it's expense outweighs it's mileage benefits. This is especially true in the case of my DP. I don't plan on ordering anymore after I use up my current stock. I'll be happy to sell you a bottle of it at cost if you'd like!
