There’s no doubt that the increase in fuel (petrol and diesel) cost has persuade drivers to seek for methods or mechanism to reduce their fuel consumption. Some people opt to invest and modify their engine to consume liquefied natural gas (LNG). Some people decided to use motorcycle (which is cost saving and faster if traffic jam takes place). Pity, I’m not good in riding a bike!!! Some people like me, chose to use a more economic vehicle like Kancil to go to work. It’s worth it because I cover a distance of 100 km from home to work and back home. Some people installed magnetic stuff inside their engine to make their fuel work more efficiently and thus create some small percentage of saving in their monthly fuel consumption. Rumors say that the price increase is most likely going to happen again. A slight increase in the petrol cost will definitely affect me because of the daily distance that I traveled. Let’s do some mathematics. Don’t worry, it’s simple.
Lets say I work 24 a days a month. 1 day I go to work, I’ll cover 97 km (assume 100 km for the sake of calculation). That means I traveled 26 x 100 km = 2600 km per month.
My kancil fuel tank capacity is about 20 liters only. The current petrol cost is RM1.92 per liter.To fill up the tank, I need to spend RM38.40 per 20 liters.
With a full petrol tank, I can travel 3 days to work. That means, 20 liters (RM38.40) can allow me to go to work for 3 days = 300 km.
Because I work 24 days a month, that means, I have to fill up the petrol 8 times a month in order for me to go to work. (8 times fuelling x 3 days = 24 days). That means the cost of fuel is RM38.4 divide by 300 km = RM 0.128 per km @ 12.8 cents per km.
Last month, a colleague at work introduced a bottle of green fluid called MyGreenOil which he claimed can save petrol. Being nice and because the price is just RM10 (60ml), I bought it from him.
MyGreenOil application is simple. We just mixed 1ml of Mygreenoil to 1 liter of petrol. For my case, I add 20 ml of MyGreenOil liquid into my fuel tank and pour in 20 liters of petrol.
After applying it for the very first time, I was so impressed. An addition of 20 ml gave me extra 80-90 km, which means I can now travel 380-390 km with my Kancil compared to only about 300km previously without MyGreenOil.
The cost of 20 ml is just RM10 / 3 = RM3.33. That means with additional RM3.33 I can get extra 80-90km. The new cost that I have to pay now is RM38.40 + RM3.33 = RM41.73 for every 20 liters of petrol. But when we calculate further, the final cost of petrol per km is now reduced to RM0.107 per km [RM41.73 divide by 380km]. That’s a saving of 16.8%.
After this, I can estimate, the fuel that I have to pay per month is 2600km x 0.107 = RM278.20 per month compared to 2600 x 0.128 = RM332.8. The difference is about RM54.60. Well, those are just an estimate based on my calculations. From it, I know that I can save about RM50 per month and that is before the petrol price increase. The saving will increase when the petrol price rises… God knows when…
What makes me become more convinced that the fluid/additive really work? Before this it took me 3 days before I have to fuel up. Now I can drive my car up to 4 working days. Can that fact lie? I’m not promoting this green liquid. I’m just one of the happy user. Some of my friends bought it as well. Some of them are happy just like me. Some say they don’t see the saving. I don’t give a damn about it…. the most important thing is …… it benefited me…. and…..
….and I want to share them with you. That’s why, as promise, I’m rewarding the top 5 top commentators of the month of January a bottle each. Yes, that’s right. One bottle of MyGreenOil for the 5 top commentators of this month. If you want it…well…I guess you know what to do….
