Indeed it is. Simple mathematics. Divide the reserve to reserve by the amount of fuel used.

The one liter was mentioned so as to remove any confusion to those who may not be familiar with this methodology.

Mate do not get fooled by any of these devices. You bike might harmed by these spurious products.
Do calculate the average after this contraption was fitted and tell us if it has gone up.

@Sidman,
To be honest with you there is no such contraption that will make an ICE Engine work better. If it were to be such a simple thingy then am sure the company's R&D folks would not have overlooked it. Have been seeing such stuff from way back in circa 99's.
One guy even claimed it that there will be around 30% gain in acceleration which just did not fly.

In my case, the reserve to reserve method didnt worked well.

I had a 2006 Karizma, with the reserve to reserve method, I got anywhere between 28kmpl to 52kmpl. Most of the time it varied between 35 to 42 kmpl though!! But 52kmpl on a karizma for me was ridiculous!!

Question Increase in Fuel Efficiency

Guys -

Recently I was shown a product by my friend called "Panther". Though I'm not interested in getting one for myself, I'm curious to find its pros / cons.

The product claims a fuel efficiency increase by nearly 25%, with additional benefits like increased torque and HP and increased 'response'!

Product details are in below link.

http://www.pantherfuelsaver.com/home/index.php

My questions:

1. Do any forum member have experience with this product or any other similar one?

2. What is its impact on engine performance in the long term?

3. Does this thing really work and is it worth the money?

Technical reasoning will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

If it were so simple to increase performance, fuel efficiency and "response" just by adding one part, don't you think automakers in their infinite wisdom would have already implemented it?

I'm not aware of the technology behind it, but I would stay away.

First of all your opening post says that after installing this your bike took more kicks to fire up. Then you say this device solved it. I'm now confused as to what it actually did to the starting issue.

Please assume you lost 250 bucks somewhere.

For the interest of this forum and to put your curiosity to rest, please cut it open using a hack saw (that's the kind of "respect" it deserves).

You won't be surprised if you find nothing inside (except for maybe a spark plug cable, that too is doubtful).

"Afterthought"
The bloody petrol pump owners should take the case of such street hawkers who trouble their customers on their premises.

Srikanthan

I looked over the Panther and its technical explanation.
It claims to supply 14 volts to the electrical system when the voltage drops below 12 volts.

There is absolutely no need for some device that would do this. The ECU and all sensors and other electrical devices in a automobile or on a motorcycle will work fine at voltages even less than 12 volts.

Save your money or use it to buy yourself or your loved ones a special treat for dinner.
