Recent Engine Treatment Review Letter

If you were wondering what is the best engine treatment, you came to the right place.

We got this letter in the mail the other day. The letter was to one of our resellers who recently gave GO15 to Nelson Louviere who used it for his feed mixer, trucks and tractors. Below is the content from the letter containing his GO15 Engine Treatment Review.

“Dear Mr. Jarvis,

I am writing to follow up on our conversation regarding the issue I was having with the gear box on my feed mixer becoming excessively hot during use. Per your suggestions, I added 1 ounce of GO15 you supplied me with, and the results were phenomenal. After mixing 3 batches of feed, the reduction gearbox was noticeably cooler than compared to just 1 batch without it. I’d like to thank you for your help and plan to begin using this product in my truck and tractors as well.

Nelson Louviere”

We are so happy to have helped Mr. Louviere with his overheating problem. GO15 is designed to improve most all of the related fundamental operating efficiencies of internal combustion engines whether it is a vehicle or piece of machinery. GO15 will work for you.

Hoelzle Wins With GO15


D.J. Hoelzle withstood a frantic last-lap challenge from Travis Roland to win Saturday night’s action-packed 75-lap J.D. Byrider Open Wheel Shootout at Desoto Speedway.
This is his second win in a row at the Desoto Speedway and we at GO15 could not be prouder. D.J. had another win in the Eddie Brann Memoral Race last weekend.

Hoelzle grabbed the lead from Dutilly on a lap 39 restart and quickly opened up a large gap over Dutilly and Roland. He had a two-second lead over Dutilly when the yellow came out for Timmy Moore’s spin in turn three on lap 48.

Roland appeared to spin his tires on the restart, handing the lead back to Hoelzle. Roland quickly reeled Hoelzle back in and made one last attempt to grab the lead coming out of turn four, but he came up about a five feet short of taking the checkers.

“I used the wall four or five times on the straightaway to try and hold him off,” Hoelzle said.
Roland, said he felt like he ran over some debris on the final restart.
“I felt like I gave it away on that last restart,” Roland said. “I wasn’t real good on the top of the track and D.J. had it figured out on the bottom. He did what he had to do and I love racing against him. It was a heck of a show.”

During D.J’s career he has tried many different additives that did not work or were harmful to his engine. GO15 engine treatment products are the only products that improved his performance on the race track and kept his car running great. See his video testimonial below.


Use GO15 When You Change Your Oil

If you have only used just one bottle of GO15, you will not get all the benefits like better gas mileage, lower emissions and better fuel economy. GO15 needs to be used every time you change your oil.

After the first bottle is used for your treatment prep you change your oil. This takes away part of the initial engine treatment and if you do not consistently add GO15 it will eventually be completely gone from your engine. That is why when you change your oil you should add GO15 again to maintain the repair it has done to your engine. Each time you add GO15 when you change your oil it embeds deeper into your engines metal surfaces. This chemical reaction reduces friction, heat, wear, corrosion, rust and chemical attacks on treated metal surfaces.

When to change your oil?

We recommend changing your oil every 3,000 miles, however on some new cars we have seen every 5000, 10000 or as high as 15,000 miles. Usually the higher the mileage interval depends on the quality and type of oil. Synthetic motor oil can be changed every 5000 miles.

Depending on your cars make or model it depends on when you should change your oil and you should check your owners manual for your car. Oil change information is in the maintenance chapter of your owner’s manual. If for some reason you’ve misplaced your owner’s manual, many automakers have put their manuals online. You can also search our Edmunds Maintenance Schedules. They have an extensive maintenance database on vehicles dating back to l980.

When to use GO15 engine treatment?

We recommend having a years supply of GO15 which usually consists of 4 bottles. If you buy 4 bottles at a time you only pay for the cost of 3. Get a years supply at our engine treatment products page.

The first bottle is used as your treatment prep which can be put into your engine immediately. Then usually you want to drive about 1000 miles so that GO-15 starts to clean your engine and repair the wear and tear of your engine. Most cars use the 12oz bottle which treats up to 6 quarts of oil but if you have a smaller 4 cylinder engine you only need the 8oz bottle.

At 1000 miles, change your oil and oil filter which you can do yourself or you can have a mechanic do it. Then you or your mechanic can add the 2nd bottle of GO15 in addition to your normal level of oil.

At approximately every 3000 miles or what your vehicle recommended service interval for conventional oil change maintenance, change your oil and filter and add GO-15™ in addition to your normal level of oil.

After approximately 12,000 miles and 1 year, or once you have used your last bottle of GO-15™, buy another GO15 discount pack, containing 4 bottles of GO15 for the next year of engine treatment and maintenance, or next series of maintenance intervals.

Why Gas Prices are Going Down

You may have noticed but your wallet is feeling a little more full when you visit the pump these days. Prices of gas have dropped near this year’s low and on their way even lower.


Across the U.S.A regular unleaded averages $3.28 per gallon. However certain places are paying just $2.75 because of less demand after the summer months when people hit the road more often. Other contributors to lower gas prices are large global crude oil inventories and vast supplies.

Two key factors will keep gas prices on this downward trend throughout the winter months.

  • Winter-blend fuel is cheaper to make as most oil companies have made the switch.
  • Declining ethanol prices

10% of gas stations in the U.S.A have gas prices at less than $3. Last year only 3% were.

There was a steep drop in average gas prices on Monday with a decrease of more than 2 cents. This was the steepest drop in almost a year.

There is not only good news for everyday motorists but there has also been a decline in diesel gas prices for truckers. This week prices were down to $3.71 per gallon which is down from $3.89 a year ago.

Another benefit is that nobody is trying to stop the slide in oil prices because that is OPEC’s responsibility. OPEC could try to push prices back up by limiting production. This past October, OPEC made the decision to maintain production at normal levels, which resulted in lowering prices for oil even more.

Since the Summer of 2014 crude oil prices have dropped more than 50 percent. Ranging from over $100 a barrel to under $50, which is a massive decline. From the mid-1980’s to the mid-2000’s, prices were never above $60.

Save even more on gas prices when you use an engine treatment that works even better with winter-blend fuel grade. GO15 is an engine treatment that increases your vehicles miles per gallon and lowers your emissions. It works by smoothing the metal surface in your engine, reducing friction giving you more miles per gallon.

September Gas Prices

The second half of the month should see a fall in September gas prices due to the switch to less expensive winter-blend gasoline

The auto club says the switch to cheaper fuel is scheduled for Today. This Friday the average cost for a gallon of unleaded gas was $3.41 across the United States. September gas prices are down 3 cents from last week where it was $3.44.

The average across the U.S. for gasoline declines during the weeks following Labor Day, which is due to the end of summer driving season. Today also marks the day when refineries transition to a winter-blend gasoline every year. Emission requirements in the summer that are in place to prevent pollution in warmer temperatures are not needed in the winter. Global politics, natural disasters and other events can cause instability in gas prices in the months ahead as well.

You would think September gas prices would increase due to the political unrest, particularly in Ukraine and Iraq. Fortunately these developments have not had much impact on the gallons of fuel being imported so the cost has not been effected. The growing U.S. fuel production and decreased global demand has reduced the worry about any disruptions in supply as the Middle East and Russia are going through turmoil. Crude oil settled at $92.27, down $1 from last week.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) noted inventories fell 970,000 barrels to 358.6 million barrels, gasoline stocks rose 2.4 million barrels to 212.4 million barrels and gasoline demand fell almost 900,000 bpd to 8.611 million bpd last week. This last April was when demand for fuel has been this low. However, the latest level is about even September gas prices a year ago, as is the current four-week average for gasoline demand.

September Gas PricesThe EIA projects that fuel prices will continue to decline through December about 20 cents per gallon lower. These are better prices than last years gas prices which averaged $3.51/gal. 2014 should average $3.46/gal this year and $3.41/gal in 2015, 4 cents lower and 6 cents lower than last month’s STEO, respectively.

You can increase the miles your car can travel in a single tank by taking care of your vehicle. Regular maintenance and Go15, a high performance engine treatment that increases your vehicles miles per gallon. GO15 smooths the metal surface in your engine, reducing friction will give you increased fuel economy and extends your engine life.

6 Little Known Facts That Can Boost Your Fuel Economy

With the gas prices practically in the sky (at least it feels that way); everyone is looking for a way to save a few bucks at the pump this year. So here are six simple ways that you can make that MPG go a little further this year.

1. Old Engine Oil=Lower Fuel Economy

Yes, the quality of your engine oil does indeed affect your fuel economy. So make sure you change the oil in your car according to your vehicles maintenance schedule, and you will be a step ahead at the gas pump.

2. Stop Carrying Dead Weight

Here’s the deal; traveling with excess weight in your vehicle makes your engine burn fuel faster thus degrading your fuel economy. Want to get another boost of MPG’s? Start cleaning that car out to get rid of all the junk that isn’t being used. No matter how you make your car clean, just remember that the less weight your car carries, the more your gas mileage will improve.

3. Break Your Bad Driving Habits

Let’s face it; you and I both probably have some bad driving habits. Did you know, aggressive driving such as rapid accelerations and speeding can decrease your gas mileage by 33%! The more steady and consistent your driving becomes, the more fuel efficient your vehicle will be.

4. Cruise Control Won’t Help You

The fact that cruise control keeps you going at a constant speed doesn’t take in to account shifts in the terrain. Try it yourself. Set the cruise at 60 MPH and listen to how hard your engine accelerates when you drive up an inclined section of freeway. If all roads were flat, cruise control would be perfect for optimizing your fuel economy. But because most roads are made up of series’ of inclines and declines and are rarely flat, you have much more control over how your vehicle handles the road if your foot is actually on the pedal. So, stay in control of your cruising and you’ll be on your way to maximized fuel economy in no time at all.

5. Avoid Traffic

Ok ok, I know what you’re already thinking. How is not getting stuck in traffic a “little known secret’ to boost fuel economy?! Clearly no one in their right mind goes looking for traffic. Crawling along the road at a snail’s pace is not the most efficient way to use your limited gas supply.

6. Keep Those Tires Properly Inflated

I wasn’t going to include this tip, because I thought it was common knowledge that under-inflated tires drastically affect your fuel economy. Also, tires with low air pressure do a lot more than lower your fuel economy. Low tire pressure can also lead to premature wear, poor handling, and even massive failures while driving on the highway. So do yourself a favor, and swing by your local gas station and make sure check your tire pressure today.

10 Things You Might Not Know That Could Damage Your Car Paint

The dings and scratches on your car are sometimes unavoidable. People hit your car in the parking lot; they walk by and scratch it with their carts or their purses, and so many other things. But to keep your paint job looking as shiny and new as possible, it’s important to know what can damage your paint. After all, your car’s exterior has more enemies than just sharp objects, ex-significant others and stray shopping carts. Make sure you’re aware of the 10 common things that can cause damage to your automobile’s paint.

  1. Road construction: Areas of road construction tend to have loose rocks and pebbles, wet tar and other pointy objects that aren’t secured. Avoid driving through construction zones if at all possible, as these “constructions bits” can scratch, stick to and all around damage the paint on your car.
  2. Rain: yes rain. Rain pulls with it pollution from the air and this can make your car very dirty. Continuous rain can also cause parts of your car to rust, which will eat away at the paint. If you have a garage at home, make sure you use it.
  3. Bug guts: Those splattered bugs on your car acidic. Wash them off right away to prevent damage; once those suckers harden they are next to impossible to scrub off.
  4. Writing messages: writing messages or drawing funny pictures with your finger on a dirty car is an easy and humorous joke. Unfortunately, that dirty can have the consistency of sandpaper, and etch that image into your car’s paint permanently! Keep your car clean and keep the “dirt artists” away from your vehicle.
  5. Silly string: Whatever this stuff is made of is potent, and bad for your vehicle. It’s not too hard to get it off when it’s wet, but when it dries and hardens it can peel back your paint when you try and scrape it off.
  6. Coffee: coffee and its caffeinated friend soda, are both acidic drinks. If you spill this on your car’s exterior make sure you wipe it up right away.
  7. Shaving cream: chances are you’re not shaving in your car, but this is another item that is commonly used to leave prank messages on cars. Shaving cream can permanently discolor your paint, and it should be washed off immediately.
  8. Bird droppings: It’s common knowledge that birds always find the cleanest, shiniest cars to poop on. This just seems to be what they prefer! But besides being ugly and gross, these droppings are also acidic and no friend to your car’s paint.
  9. Salt: We’re talking about the kind of salt used in the winter to de-ice roads and sidewalks. This stuff can be corrosive: so don’t let it stay stuck to your automobile’s exterior for weeks on end.
  10. Sprinklers Systems: Automatic sprinkler systems can leave permanent water droplet spots on your vehicle’s paint. Direct sunlight will permanently burn these water sports onto your car, and there may be nothing you can do about it.

Cars are durable, and they’re meant to be driven, so there’s no doubt that your vehicle’s paint job will encounter some unavoidable dings and dents. But knowing these then common items that can cause even more harm to your car will help you at least stay away from avoidable damage!

12 Facts About Some Familiar Cars

Most people when looking to buy a new car stay within the same car company for a few reasons. Some do it for the family history, the experience the brand has, or even the marketing techniques that companies use. But here are 12 little known facts about some familiar cars.

Mercedes-Benz: This German brand traces its history to the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagon, considered to be the first automobile. If you think the Model T was the first automobile you probably misread history.

The Chevy Corvette: This sports car was named after a small, maneuverable ship and is actually the official state car of Kentucky. The Bluegrass states is the only state where the Corvette is produced.

The Honda Accord: This was the first automobile from a Japanese manufacturer to be built in the U.S. when it began rolling off the assembly line in Marysville, Ohio in 1982.

FIAT: This Italian automobile’s name comes from the words “Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino”. The first initials combine to spell what means in English, “Italian Automobile Factory of Turin”. Sounds a little faster than that doesn’t it?

Volkswagen: Original Volkswagens’ were produced at the urging of Adolf Hitler so Germany could make a “people’s car”. Prior to introduction in the 1930’s, German cars were mostly luxury models owned by the few.

The Chevy Camaro: The name was created by Chevy to coincide with its other “C” car branding names including Chevelle, Corvette and Corvair. It was designed to convey the merging of “camaraderie” and “go”

The DeLorean: this car made famous in the “Back to the Future” series, is actually constructed of fiberglass. Its fiberglass underbody has a thin stainless steel skin.

Jeep: the first Jeeps were made for war use in 1941. They began being made for the general public in 1945. Today they are the oldest off-road vehicles made.

Volvo: the Swedish carmaker traces its history to a ball-bearing manufacturing company. The name Volvo appropriately means… “I roll”.

The Ford Mustang: while Ford has used horses in its For Mustang logo, the idea for the name came from a World War II fighter plane called the P51 Mustang. John Ferzely, co-designer of the car suggested the name to the car company.

Pontiac: this General Motors brand name was named after an Ottawa Indian Chief. The cars were produced in the Detroit area until 1939. Ironically the Indian Chief was famous for his attack on Fort Detroit in 1763.

Prius: the name Prius in Latin means “before”. Toyota says the name was chosen “before” the environment became such a hot issue. But if it was before, how did they know?


6 Facts about Gasoline that You Should Know!

Gasoline is such a big part of how Americans get from place to place. Gasoline is the sweet liquid that we depend upon every day to keep our cars and nation going. It is part of what has help propel the United States into a world power over the past century, and it is what powers the vast majority of motor vehicles; whether they are by land, sea or air. Here are six things that are important to know about gasoline and why they are important to us as everyday gasoline users.

Fact 1: The tax you pay per gallon

We all know that gas prices change on what seems like an everyday basis but the taxes you pay per gallon of fuel can vary wildly. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has an excellent cost breakdown from the month of March, when gas prices averages at $3.53 per gallon. Basically, total taxation comes to 12 percent of that overall price. Federal excise tax equaled 18.4 cents, and by averaging state taxes on top of it, the EIA came up with the figure of 23.52 cents per gallon.

Each state has a different rate of taxation per gallon of gas, so where you live is the most important factor in determining the total price of filling up your tank. States like California and New York generally have higher taxes and the exact rates can boil down to a number of economic factors. Taxation can be used by legislators to encourage people to take public transport to ease roadway congestion or as measure to combat air pollution. The manner in which those taxes are applied also varies state to state through excise and sales tax.

Fact 2: Where does your gas come from?

Tracking down exactly where the gas you are pumping came from is downright near impossible. There are numerous variables in gasoline production, and the product that ultimately ends up at your neighborhood gas station most likely saw its genesis at a number of locations. The EIA doesn’t collect information as to the source of gasoline sold at local outlets, so its origin cannot be easily determined.

The product you’re purchasing could have been developed at a number of different refineries, own by any number of different companies. Gas producers also receive crude oil, which is refined into gasoline from a bunch of different sources, both foreign and domestic. Even after gasoline leaves the refinery, it often is blended with the products of other refineries through a pipeline, and then sold to gas stations in bulk. Basically, the fuel you’re putting into your vehicle can’t really be traced back to its definitive source.

Fact 3: How much fuel comes from a barrel of oil?

When news outlets report on oil and gas they generally talk about the production in barrels. One barrel commonly abbreviated to ‘bbl’ can contain up to 42 gallons of crude oil. From those 42 gallons, a U.S. refinery can generally refine roughly 19 gallons of gasoline.

Fact 4: Why does the U.S. export fuel when prices keep climbing?

Recent studies have shown that the U.S. is taking big steps towards limiting its country wide dependence on foreign fuel and that has come through a combination of increases domestic oil and natural gas production. As American oil producers ramp up production numbers, exports have been on the rise as well. The one thing we all find ourselves asking every time we roll up to the pump is, if production is increasing and the process is becoming more refined, then why do process keep rising? Why are American companies exporting fuel that we could use here to drive prices back down?

The answer is fairly complicated, but, in its purest form, basically gasoline producers can hit higher profit margins by sending their product abroad. There are other factors, like inadequate pipeline capacity and shipping constraints, which lead many companies to send petroleum products to easier-to-reach markets. Essentially, the amount of production and gas prices aren’t as closely related as people might think, and things like taxation could have a bigger impact. Companies will sell their product where they can secure the biggest profit, which is why exports have continued despite higher prices domestically.

Fact 5: Ethanol’s role

Over the past decade, ethanol has become a popular term in then energy lexicon, especially when discussing fuel prices and production. Ethanol itself is short for ethyl alcohol, a main component in most gasolines that can be produced from biological sources, like corn or sugar cane.

Ethanol is an additive for many fuels, and according to the EIA, makes up about 10% of overall gasoline consumption. Ethanol has grown to become a fixture in most gasoline sold at the pump, but the exact amount can vary by location. The basic role of ethanol is to oxygenate gasoline, causing it to burn cleaner and more efficiently.

Fact 6: How much CO2 is produced from Gasoline?

Burning fossil fuels is the main contributor toward increasing greenhouse gases in the environment, and motor vehicles are a big source of emissions. Burning a gallon of gasoline without any ethanol added produced 16.64 pounds of carbon dioxide, while burning a gallon of diesel produces 22.38 pounds, according to the EIA’s data. With added biofuel content, those numbers are reduced depending on specific blends.

As consumers and businesses look for ways to lessen their environmental impact, vehicle emissions should start to see a reduction in coming years. Companies like Tesla are taking steps to make cleaner technologies available to other car makers, which should add more competition and increase the number of electric cars on the road as well.
