F-Bomb Fuel Additive anyone?

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on it? This is what i experienced.

I myself have tried a lot of different fuel additives and have noticed little to nothing out of them. My only reason for even using an additive is to keep my fuel from jelling up here in the cold months. I've tried many different ones and haven't noticed any difference from any of them so who knows if they do anything. So other than keeping my fuel from jelling my opinion has always been just another snake oil.

I seen this F-bomb additive from Diesel Power Products and thought what the hell i'll give it a try, thought if works, Great, if not just another snake oil.

I added it to the current truck in the sig. At the moment my truck is due for a fuel filter change, but since so damn cold out, i've been to lazy to change it out. To me my truck has seemed to be a little sluggish lately like i have a fuel restriction or something, but figured had to do with fuel filter and/or cold weather, but who knows. So I went to get fuel the other day and added the required amount of F-bomb to a tank of fuel. Took off and drove about 5 miles down the road and after taking off from a few lights, my truck just seemed to be running great, like it was new, or like i had found lost power somewhere. Just seemed to feel like a totally different truck. I'm still actually a little surprised, still in disbelief, but i haven't done anything to the truck except add the F-bomb additive.

Only thing i can come up with is maybe i had a restriction and something was gummed up. But after adding f-bomb everything seems to be better than good now. This is the first additive out of all i've tried that i've got the best results out of, so my opinion is the f-bomb is NOT just another snake oil.

I just thought i'd share my experience with everyone. I recommend giving it a try, thats the only way to believe it for yourself.
