We Still Get Handwritten Testimonials

Coming Soon

99% of the customer testimonials we get are via our web form or email or Facebook page, but every now and again we get some sent to us via the old school method — snail mail.

We also occasionally get a caller or emailer who insists we make up our testimonials, that the hundreds upon hundreds of testimonals we have aren’t real. Well, we hate to break the news, but every single testimonial we get is real, from a real person who gave us permission to use their statement. We are a family owned business, and we wouldn’t dare manufacture customer testimonials or comments. That’s not how you stay in business for over 50 years.

Going through some testimonial archives, here are three we received last year in written form. In this digital world, it’s cooler than you think to receive something in the mail like this.

Bottom line: our customers are awesome.

Testimonial: Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL

Coming Soon

We’ve just received a great customer email about our Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL (p/n 4701), which we introduced to improve gas quality, reduce spark knock and serve as an overall fuel conditioner. George R. from New Castle, PA writes:

I used to use Rislone in my oil years ago and have not seen it for my fuel injectors. I had a “service engine soon” light come on around Christmas time, nice time for that to happen, so to the auto parts store I went. They checked it on the computer and said it was an 02 sensor.

Well I saw this bottle of Rislone complete fuel system cleaner and conditioner and reconizing the name, I purchased the bottle and drove to the gas station, put it in, filled my tank and after only 75 miles the light turned off and have not seen it since. I will continue to use Rislone in my vehicle. This stuff really works. I purchased it at Advance Auto in New Castle, PA.

Thanks George for choosing Rislone. It’s true that Rislone made its name from its engine treatment product (the now-famous 100QR), but our line of new fuel products has won awards and customer praise alike. We’re geeked that you found the product so helpful.

Thanks for sharing!

Rislone Defender Featured in New Monster Truck Destruction Game for iOS

Coming Soon

Holly, MI (Dec 13, 2012) – The Rislone® Defender monster truck is featured in ODD Games’ new Monster Truck Destruction game launching today through Apple’s App Store. Players choose monster trucks to crush obstacles, race competitors and hear the roar of the crowd, just like Rislone Defender driver Zach Adams does in real life most weekends.

The Rislone Defender is easily identified by its bright yellow and red color scheme highlighted by the Rislone Mad Scientist clutching a bottle of Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner. In a game that emphasizes power and performance, Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner fits right in. It’s a complete fuel system tune-up, designed to maximize vehicle power, performance and mileage.

“We’ve been involved in motorsports for decades and have sponsored the Rislone Defender monster truck for the past five years,� said Clay Parks, Rislone vice president of development. “Driver Zach Adams and his truck do a great job of showcasing our Fuel Injector Cleaner to thousands of monster truck fans every year. We’re excited to see the game in action and can’t wait to ‘get behind the wheel’ ourselves!�

Everything in the game can be bent, broken or destroyed. Developers at ODD Games worked for two years to develop a dynamic damage system and realistic driving physics. Even the arenas are realistic, with cheering crowds, course obstacles and sponsor signage. Trucks can race and do tricks, like slap wheelies and back flips. Multiple camera angles let players check out the view from the cockpit, behind the truck, TV mode and more.

Players can choose from 30 trucks. In addition to the Rislone Defender, there are classics like Bigfoot, Bear Foot, USA-1 and Carolina Crusher. Players can even upgrade their vehicles with performance parts. Photos may be taken during gameplay and easily shared on Facebook or Twitter.

The game will be available for all iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It will cost 99 cents. An Android version will follow in early 2013.

PHOTOS: How Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL Improves Gas Mileage

Coming Soon

Here’s a personal, unscientific illustration of how our Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL can improve gas mileage. Note: this is not a guarantee that all cars/situations will see these results. This is just one casual test conducted at one point in time on one car.

Backstory: I used to have a Volkswagen GTI MkV. I used our Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL back then and saw an approximate 8%–10% increase in MPG. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos or log any data to illustrate it.

I’m now driving another car, and decided to run the same test.

The first picture is what I get without using Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL. This was shot about 50 miles into a full tank of gas.

As you can see, I’m getting 21.6 MPG.

This next photo was taken with Rislone Fuel Injector Cleaner with UCL installed in a full tank of gas. Like the first photo, I shot this 50 miles into the tank to allow the product to circulate. I took the photo on the same road with zero change in my driving habits. Temperature was in the mid–40s, same as the first pic.

content_with-rislone

With Rislone, I’m up to 23.9  MPG.

That’s a 2.3 MPG increase, or about 10%, as I noticed with my Volkswagen. To boot, the car run smoother with our product installed, and it helps combat the quality inconsistencies of ‘winter gas’.

We’ve had car clubs and customers write and call us to tell us how our fuel injector cleaner with UCL is the first one that’s actually worked for them, but we haven’t been able to put numbers to it. Pretty cool!
