Testimony of a GTO User

Photo of a Hyundai Galloper (Pajero type) - not the actual vehicle

"My car is a 4-year old refurbished Korean Pajero or Hyundai Galloper. After registering over 150,000 kms, I felt the engine showed wear and tear. It lost its pulling power and it became inefficient @ 9-10kms a liter of diesel from as high as 15 to16 km a liter running @ 70kph (km an hour), initially. I decided to replace the engine and I already bought one last August 2011. But before my mechanic could be around, I was introduced to GTO in a meeting in Surigao City last September 2011. Since I am an avid advocate for clean and green environment, and since those introducing the products are my friends, I did not have second thoughts about the product. I loaded two 250ml GTO and a bottle of the blue one (GTF). Driving home that evening, I felt the change right away: a) lighter push to the accelerator, b) much lower temperature - less than half of what the gauge used to register, and c) reduced smoke. The following week I did an 800-km trip down South. Comparing my fuel consumption with my previous trips, I noticed that I added 3 to 4 more kms a liter now with GTO, and my engine's temperature stayed at minimum level. And I haven't changed oil since September. GTO has restored my car's fuel efficiency. And I am no longer thinking about replacing the engine."

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
