Why have I never heard of this before? At the current prices of fuel, this should be available now.

Ok, dumb question time. If tihs is so good why is it really not much different than methane injection - which is generally reserved for race applications as it is considered too volitile for the regular Joe.
I think SNOW Performance would be all over this if this was really the savour it claims. Not saying it doesn't work but at the end of the day we in North America I think are going to just have to get used to paying through the teeth for go juice like they do everywhere else in the world.

In the rest of the world, there are countries that the population to vehicle ratio is still way different than ours. It might take someone 1 to 3 years to get a car / truck if they want one. You order, they have to make before delivery. Many places still live where you can walk to where ever you need to since you never go that far from home. I think it was Poland where diesel was something like 7 bucks per gal. There are no refineries anywhere near, all fuels are transported there and there are less people owning vehicles per 1000 drivers. It was only the last decade or two that it has changed where more have owned a car or truck than ever before.

Through in countries like China where until the last, say <2 decades, the outlining villages only had horse carts to transport goods and people only walk. Fuel was precious and cost dearly. The demands are higher and the old saying of supply and demand really takes over,

We crushed our processing abilities with EPA and permitting to where the refineries had other alternative to look at, like de-bottle necking what they have now, streamlining the process from product entry, to actual on the run storage needs, to shipping products for sale. When the Feds looked into letting them build a couple refineries about 15-20 years ago, they said no, were fine like we are.

Reason ??? Think about it, they don't spends millions and millions for new equipment, they had some control over you by increasing price to limit your consumption, and they run fine with less worries. If a storm hits and stops / slows supplies ??? No big deal, raise prices, they need less, we can recover with less loss and more profit.

Also, take in account, it was stated on the news they sell up to 40% + of processed diesel from American refineries to overseas and make a higher profit, using US crude for a Global Market for their profit.

Look at Alaska. Now, a company like bp (it was ARCO before), pulls crude from the ground and ships where ??? For what reason ??? Sweat crude use to go to our west coast refineries and processed, not elsewhere, like the orient. Sour crude is brought here instead to save money and make more on the sweet elsewhere.

That's why you better get use to paying through your teeth at the end of the day, it's a global market. They finally got what they wanted.

One of the many reasons why it cost more in other countries is the fact they all have VAT tax on top of the many other taxes that in the end raise the price of gas and diesel.
