AUTOMOTIVE CUSTOMER CHALLENGE'S
A major NASCAR team dyno tested their race engines and
made assorted changes to try and get more horsepower.
After running many times on the dyno, and making all sorts
of changes, they added Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner to the engine. At
8,000 rpm the Petron Plus treated engine was producing 6.6 more horsepower
and using less fuel to do it.
A leading NASCAR team after dyno testing several of their
race engines and made all sorts of changes to try and get more horsepower.
They had a rep. from the factory stand-by while they ran another dyno test
using Petron Plus products.
The engine after being treated with Petron Plus The Engine
Conditioner made peak horsepower at 8,000 rpm. It also made 17.4 more
horsepower. It also produced 19.6 more foot pounds of torque. The factory
rep. was most impressed by the 1/4 mile per gallon increase in mileage.
A video production company, that produced “how-to video”,
one on how to build a 350 cu in Chevy Engine, and also owns a race team.

A major World-of-Outlaw National race team racing eleven
months out of the year, and more than 100 race days a year. They were
sending their engines back to their engine builder every 10 to 12 races to
have them rebuilt due to the extreme compression that they run. They also
leak down each cylinder each day after every racing event to see what
percentage of leakage they have going by the rings. Anything over 5%
leakage is unacceptable and needs to be rebuilt.
After adding and using Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner
for a year, they have held cylinder leakage between 1 and 2 percent even
after 12 nights of racing. The rod and main bearing wear has been
substantially less. The oil temperature has dropped 30 to 40 degrees. The
biggest asset is performance. We had a engine re-dyno tested after 7 nights
of racing, and found they had 7 more horsepower than when it was fresh.
They have extended their engine rebuilt program to 15 nights of racing
before rebuilds due to Petron Plus.
A NHRA Competition Eliminator race team and major engine

pounds more torque.

Petron Plus The Engine Conditioner was added to the 5.7
liter V-8, and drove for 1,383 miles. The fuel mileage was 15.8 mpg prior

Petron Plus. This was a 9.4% increase in fuel mileage.
A U.S.H.R.A. World Champion Truck Puller reported his oil
pump drive belt broke as he approached the starting line, the oil pressure
warning light failed to come on, and he ran at 8,000 rpm for over 15

In the NASCAR Winston West race in Bakersfield, CA a race
team reported: While coming out of turn two, the driver cut a tire down and
the car sideswiped the wall. This particular car had not been converted over
to bottom engine mounts and still had an engine plate mount in it. When the
driver struck the wall this caused the engine plate to separate 1/8” from
the block, causing the water to leak out slowly enough enabling us to
detect it. After putting tires on the car and sending him back out, the
water and oil temperature gauges both reached 280°F. When returning to the
shop and pulling the engine, they noticed the cylinder heads had melted
below the header flanges which was spraying melted aluminum on the top of
the chassis. While pulling the cylinder heads, they found they had melted
to the block, and while pulling the oil pan, the oil had thickened to the
consistency of molasses.
They reported: They had been using Petron Plus The Engine
Conditioner in their engines for sometime, and to their amazement, they
found no damage to the crankshaft, rods, rod bearings, custom skirts,
cylinder walls, or any lower engine components.

A Formula Atlantic race team reported: As the driver
approached a 90° turn at 10,000 rpm’s and approx. 145 mph, when suddenly
the oil filter seal blew and pumped the oil dry in seconds. The driver
powered through the turn and saved the car at the expense of the engine.
Upon scooping the cylinder walls and pistons - not a
scratch. They replaced the filtering system and fired the engine briefly.
...inspect the oil and filter, and to our surprise we found no metal
shavings! NONE! The next morning we took part in a 30 minute qualification
session. ...not only qualified, but was the fastest time of all the cars in
the C-2 class. (...no-one knew Petron was in the engine, except us)

cut down, lube oil consumption dropped 50% and the emissions dropped
A race team from Kansas, runs the NHRA circuit in a Funny
Truck, and set a World Record in a S-10 Chevy Pick-up, thereby becoming the
World Fastest race truck at 241 mph with a 5.76 e.t. They stated: “...I
made a quarter mile burn out - on live television - and the crowd went
wild. As I started the long journey backing down the track, I looked down
at the oil pressure gauge and it registered 60 lbs which is under normal.
...when I returned to the starting line, ...spotted a small amount of smoke
coming from under the body. ...car still sounded great as it always does
when pushing out 6,000 horsepower. ...looked at the oil pressure gauge and
noticed that it was pointing to zero. ...shut down the truck and raised the
body and saw that all the oil was out of the motor and in the diaper.
...they noticed there were holes on each side of the motor so large that I
could stick my arm through the engine ...Apparently, while the engine was
