Below we have answered some of the more frequently asked questions regarding our company, products and the industry in general. If you have a question that is not answered below, please feel free to use the contact us
What are the advantages of using Throttle Muscle fuel treatments?
Throttle Muscle fuel treatments are designed to clean fuel injectors and help prevent future deposit buildup. Clogged or dirty fuel injectors reduce the flow of fuel into the combustion chamber of the engine. This causes the engine to run inefficiently. An inefficient engine will use more fuel and most likely emit more emissions. Using Throttle Muscle fuel treatments regularly will help keep injectors clean and your engine running at peak efficiency.
How often should I use Throttle Muscle fuel treatments?
Throttle Muscle fuel treatments are designed to be used at each oil change interval. However, more frequent use may be recommended depending on fuel quality, driving conditions and age of the vehicle. Throttle Muscle fuel treatments are meant to be used as a preventive maintenance measures and will not fix damaged engine components. More frequent use will not cause harm to a vehicle, but may not provide any additional benefit.
Are Throttle Muscle fuel treatments safe for all vehicles?
Throttle Muscle pour in fuel treatments are safe for all gasoline powered on-road vehicles.T hrottle Muscle pour in fuel treatments are not designed to be used on diesel engines. Throttle Power Pro should only be used by professional installers as there are particular vehicles it should not be used on.
What are the advantages of using Throttle Muscle engine treatments?

FX805 contains PTFE resins that bonds to metal engine parts to help reduce friction, heat and wear. While today’s synthetic motor oils perform exceptionally well at operating temperatures, FX805 helps protect the engine during cold startups and at higher temperatures.

It is designed to work effectively with higher mileage oils without diluting their effectiveness. +75K Engine Treatment is blended with high mileage base oil and contains PTFE resins that bonds to metal engine parts.

Can Throttle Muscle FX805 Synthetic Engine Treatment be used with only synthetic oil?
Throttle Muscle FX805 Synthetic Engine Treatment is formulated with synthetic base stock oil. It is safe to use with any type of motor oil. When added to conventional oil, it helps add the characteristics of the synthetic oil and blends with the conventional oil. FX805 is also safe to use in high mileage oil, however we would recommend using +75K Engine Treatment with high mileage oil. Both FX805 and +75K Engine Treatments are safe for use in diesel oil.

Have these products been tested? By whom?
Our manufacturing facility has three on staff chemists that regularly test and retest Throttle Muscle products. Not only are the products tested for performance, they are tested for consistency and quality.
Aren’t fuel treatments and engine treatments just snake oil?
The term "snake oil" is used to describe the "medicines" sold by traveling salesmen who claimed they would cure whatever might ail a person. The era of snake oil salesmen is, for the most part, dead. But the same type of too-good-to-be-true advertising lives on with some modern day automotive elixirs, which we have dubbed "snake oils". Why pay $3500 for a new engine when all you need is a couple of magic pellets dropped through the spark plug holes. Why pay $600 for a new power steering rack when a $5.00 bottle of power steering stop leak is "guaranteed" to work. Why spend $300 on a new converter when a bottle of "Guaranteed to Pass" is a mere $15.00.
A trip down the aisles of your local Auto Parts store will demonstrate that I did not make these claims up -- you'll find them on the backs of various products. But the old axiom, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is", still holds true. Throttle Muscle products aren’t magic pills that are mysteriously going to fix something that is broken. Our products are designed to help prolong the life of your vehicle. With most consumers indicating they intend to keep their vehicles longer and longer, our goal is to help keep repair costs low by providing good preventive maintenance treatments.
