    Napthalene is just an explosive agent and helps your petrol to give more punch in your engine. But in long term the unknown chemical composition in these mothballs might harm your engine sensors an internals coz it is not tested

    hehehe....11years ago most of my friends use this method when going for a long
    distance.9/10 said it really improve the fc.about power,that i'm not sure.i've post
    about this before long ago in here.to be honest,i don't recommended for efi car.
    if the moth ball residue is still not dissolve in ur fuel tank,it might clog ur injector.
    just my 2cent.

    u must know the correct mixture of petrol and naftalena before u goin to put into your tank.
    if not sure kaboom!!!
    last time v-power plus naftalena give a big umphhh...remember last time shell v-power sponsoring the cub prix? imagine 115cc can produced 45bhp with this combo! i still remeber im shaking the mixture of petrol and naftalne in the clorox bottle! than diam2 taruk inside the bike, if they know sure disqualified!
    there is no magic product for fuel saver,its all about sciene!
    and the addictives they rekon, is the same soure of oil(petrol).better go for hydro technology or ngv!

    im using this formula for track used, we change the kapchai piston and ring every once completed season minimum. at the cost of changing to racing piston is only about rm300.
    im oso not dare to put on my car, im just my sharing my past experience on this mothball.
    take your own risk, RnD is not cheap, even on bike we blew the engine during the 1 st time. but its worth it to gain more power with less cost.

    last time i saw in astro
    it is true that naftalena will give your engine more power and reduce fc
    but in a long run it will stuck your oil filter and all fuel system flow

    in naftalena there is not 100% melt with fuel ..
    so there will stuck in your fuel system flow such as injector .. cabling .. filter .. etc
