SynTek Global Review: No recruitment = no success
If you’ve ever owned a vehicle and gone to an auto shop, you’ve no doubt seen those fuel additives they always stock in the tiny bottles near the registers.
Full of wild claims and promises of slashing your fuel costs, the cordial looking fluid in the bottles are all to easy to pass over as mere snake oil.
Really, I’m going to experience huge savings and increased engine life just by adding something to my petrol tank?
One such fuel additive company however not only promises all this and more, but they also claim to have documented and certified evidence of it all.
With XFT fuel additive as their flagship product, today we’re going to review the SynTek Global business opportunity.
Founded in 2007, SynTek Global is headed up by President and CEO John Winterholler (evidently one corporate title wasn’t enough).
SynTek Global claim that the company ‘is growing at an amazing pace‘ and ‘see(s) some of the highest retention rates in the industry‘.
SynTek Global’s one and only product is a fuel additive they call ‘Xtreme Fuel Treatment’ (XFT).
By using XFT, SynTek Global claims that customers can save ‘large amounts of money on fuel costs and engine maintenance‘.
Citing a real world example, In a promotional video I sighted XFT claim that the product is being used by ‘the largest mining company in the world’. The biggest mining company in the world is BHP but despite their claims, SynTek are actually talking about ‘PT Pama’, which is the largest mining company in Indonesia, not the world.
In any case, SynTek claim that by using XFT in their dump trucks, PT Pama were able to increase the engine running hours between services from 15,000 to 25,000 ‘continually saving the company millions of dollars’.
Apart from the engine maintenance and fuel cost savings, SynTek also claim the XFT ‘increases horsepower and performance and reduces emissions‘.
Syntek Global claim to have documentation proving all this.
These kind of fuel additive products have been around for decades and whilst I personally wouldn’t bother using them (I can’t get past the ‘if they actually worked surely they’d be compulsory by now in order to save fuel’ argument), but when you look at SynTek Global’s compensation plan, it quickly becomes apparent that whatever the product is, in the end it really doesn’t matter.
Whether it works or not, XFT is simply not a selling point when analysing the SynTek Global business opportunity.
Syntek Global Membership Ranks
Within the SynTek Global compensation plan are various membership ranks. These ranks not only directly limit the monthly income you are able to make within SynTek Global , but also unlock various components of the compensation plan as they are achieved.

The Syntek Global Compensation Plan
The Syntek Global compensation plan revolves around a binary organisation that, with you at the top branches out into two legs underneath you.
In addition to this, there’s a Fast Start Bonus, Infinity Bonus,Matching Bonus and various Leadership Pools.
As you your organisation grows underneath you, each leg under you expands by an additional two legs. Eventually, your SynTek Global binary organisation will start to look something like this;
Note that one leg underneath you (either the left or right side) will produce more Product Volume (sales) per month than the other. This leg is called your stronger leg. Naturally, the other side is your weaker leg.
With Syntek Global’s binary commissions, qualified members (those that have at least one active Syntek Global distributor in both their left and right binary legs), earn a commission on their weaker leg.
To qualify for a binary commission your weaker arm must make a minimum of 300 Business Volume (BV) for the month. The binary commission is paid out as a 10% percentage of the BV from your weaker leg and is capped at $40,000 a month.
MVP Check Match Commissions
Syntek Global offer a matching check bonus they call the ‘MVP Check Match Commission’. This matching commission is paid out on ‘MVP generations’, up to seven generations deep.
Paid out to members who are generating 100 PV a month, the MVP Check Match Commission is paid out on binary commissions earnt by members in your binary team you’ve personally sponsored.
Starting with you, the system works its way down until it finds a MVP qualified members. This forms the first generation and you are paid out on all MVP qualified members on this line.
Then the system continues down until it finds another MVP qualified member. This forms your second generation and you are paid out on all MVP qualified members on this line.
This continues down to seven generations deep, with the amount of generations you are being paid out on directly corresponding to your own Syntek Global Membership Rank.
- Pearl = 1 generation
- Jade = 2 generations
- Sapphire = 3 generations
- Ruby = 4 generations
- Emerald = 5 generations
- Diamond = 6 generations
- Blue Diamond = 7 generations
Note that all non-MVP qualified members between generations are also paid out on. Over time as members in your organisation are promoted, these generations will compact spanning less members.
The trade off of course is that as your directly sponsors are now earning more money, you will earn a larger commission.
Fast Start Bonus
There are three Fast Start Bonuses offered in the Syntek Global Compensation Plan, they are as follows;
- The Roll-up Bonus is paid out anytime someone you’ve sponsored purchases an ‘Intro Kit’. You as the sponsoring member receive $10 and so does your upline.
- The Pro Team Bonus is a once off bonus paid out when the first two members you recruit join Syntek Global. If they purchase a ‘MVP Business Builder’s Kit’ ($598), you earn a $100 bonus and if they purchase a ‘Pro Starter Kit’ ($298), you earn $50.
- The MVP Power Team Bonus is a straight up recruitment bonus that pays out on all new members you recruit after your second recruited member. A MVP Business Builder’s kit pays out $100 and a Pro Starter Kit pays out $50.
The Infinity Bonus
Syntek Global’s Infinity Bonus operates on the concept that the first two members you recruit to the company form your ‘Pro Team’ and everyone else you recruit after them are your ‘Power Team’.
For each new Syntek Global member you recruit into your Power Team, the company will pay you out $200 for every MVP Business Builder’s Kit sold, and $100 on each Pro Starter Kit.
Members can also earn the Infinity Bonus on the first two members that their personally recruited members bring into the company. For the first two new members each of your directly recruited members bring in, you will earn the Infinity Bonus as above.
To qualify for the Infinity Bonus, Syntek Global members must be pulling in a minimum of 100 Personal Volume a month. Note that if you haven’t purchased the MVP Business Builder’s Kit yourself, you only qualify to receive 50% of the Infinity Bonus.
The Build-a-Pro Bonus is a one time $25 bonus paid out each time one of your personally sponsored members reaches Pro membership status (having enrolled 2 new members to the company themselves).
Ruby MVP Bonus
The Ruby MVP Bonus rewards members a one time $1000 commission if they obtain and hold the Ruby membership rank for four consecutive months.
Sponsorship Bonus Pool
The Sponsorship Bonus Pool is made up of 1% of Syntek Global’s monthly company wide volume.
To qualify for a share in the Sponsorship Bonus Pool, members must maintain a Pro rank or higher, be generating a minimum of 100 PV a month and have recruited four new SynTek Global members for that month.
For each new member brought into the company for any particular month, one share in the Sponsorship Bonus Pool is earnt.
Blue Diamond Leadership Pool
Like the Sponsorship Pool, the Blue Diamond Leadership Pool is made up of 1% of the Syntek Global’s monthly company wide volume.
The Blue Diamond Leadership Pool is only open to qualified (100PV a month) Blue Diamonds and shares are earnt for each Ruby MVP member present in the downlines of any new member you’ve brought into the company.
Each Ruby MVP member found is equal to one additional share in the Blue Diamond Leadership Pool.
Multiple Business Centers
Upon reaching the rank of Blue Diamond and generating $400,000 in the lesser leg of your binary organisation, you are entitled to start up another binary organisation within your existing binary.
This additional business centre operates in the same manner as your first business centre, but carries with it its own commissions.
As a Blue Diamond member, each time your most recent business center generates $400,000, you are able to open up a new one (up to a maximum of four).
Joining Syntek Global
For those wishing to join Syntek Global, there are three joining options available to you;
- Intro Kit – $89.95
- Pro Starter Kit – $298
- MVP Business Builder Kit – $598
Each of the three membership options comes with ‘product information, sales and motivational tools, brochures, and personal website activation‘.
Putting aside the effectiveness of the SynTek Global’s XFT fuel additive product for a moment, sadly the SynTek Global business opportunity is pretty much summed up by the company in their compensation plan;
Sponsoring new distributors and helping them do the same is key to building volume in your organization.
Note the wording there, ‘is key to building volume‘, which pretty much spells out that the retail sales side of the business is irrelevant.
This fact is further backed up when you consider that every component of the compensation plan requires recruitment. Even to just participate in the binary component of the plan still requires a minimum of two new members to be recruited by existing members.
Looking at the bigger picture, pretty much what you’re looking at here is a recruitment driven compensation plan that is strongly tied into monthly autoship requirements.
With various autoship amounts on offer that are directly tied into how much of a commission you earn (the Infinity Bonus), it’s easy to see what the creators of the SynTek Global compensation had in mind.
The Pro Team and Power Team nonsense is just a fancy name for what is essentially a masked two up system. You directly pass up the Infinity Bonus commissions on your first two enrolled members, and then earn a commission on everyone else. Everyone you enrol is then subjected to the same recruitment requirements.
Get out there, recruit others onto autoship, help them recruit at least two new members and move on.
That’s pretty much what the entire SynTek Global business opportunity can be boiled down to and it’s probably a strong enough reason to be looking elsewhere if you’re serious about MLM success.
You must be generating at least 2000 Group Volume (GV) in your lesser binary leg a month and must have at least three Silver Pros or above in your personally sponsored downlines ($1000 monthly earning cap).
I seriously doubt Syntek’s stuff is registered with the EPA… as REQUIRED BY LAW:
“All fuel additives require registration with EPA’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality.” cited from
Just looked it up. Their “Engine Boost 2.0” is listed under EPA registration, but NOT XFT.
(look for 6511)
Weird, XFT showed on on a different list:
Not sure how relevant it is, but I’ve read that EPA registration just means the product is safe to transport… doesn’t really mean anything as far as the actual effectiveness of it goes.
The testing described in that PDF file I linked does test for effectiveness. However, the results are not published.
It is also interesting that I checked the Syntek page and they don’t give exact figures on what the improvements are.
I’ve also read through their products page, and it has some VERY MISLEADING statements on there. They claim their additive will lower the flash point of gasoline by several hundred degrees (Fahrenheit).
cited from http://www.syntekglobal.com/new/product.html
This is bogus. Ignition point of gasoline is -43 degrees Celsius. (yes, MINUS 43). Even if they mean 400 degrees Fahrenheit it’s STILL bogus science.
(See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point )
Thus, I consider this a bull**** product.
The compensation plan pretty much gives that away :).
SynTek go to so much effort claiming they have documentation and certification for everything but then have a compensation plan that in no way relies on the sellability of said product.
Obviously there’s only one conclusion to draw…
FYI, their website’s down, at least for me.
Working here at time of comment.
Must be my local access point then. Never mind.
I use the product it works great for me. I have sold the product to large trucking and small trucking companies. Doing test first. Also they guarantee there product. If it does not work for you just don’t use it. But one can bash it, if there is other motives.
As direct sales. You get 25% commission and I can stop there . No requirment for bianary. my direct sales and Custumers I made money right away.
If you wish to be part of the networking side Sponsoring and bianary , then yes you need to stay active
Hey it’s the networking structure many good companies use.
Again some will never like this structure It takes time to build not a get rich quick. But truthfully in corporate America, We hear now and then the mail room person Works his way up to CEO.
That takes time and dedication.
A CEO of a big corp. some may say they are over paid and under worked. And the mail room person is over worked and under paid. Most would agree. Well in most networking models you can start and have a chance To achieve a great paying position. And it is in most cases by helping and coaching people to be successful . Not stepping on people to get to the top.
Have you looked at big corporate pay structure As it grows as you get to the top position.
There is one big diference that stands out to me . My writing may not be the best and I may not have went to 4 years of college. This does give me the opportunity to learn as I grow with the company and get a great position.
Back to Syntek , yes to the pay plan but if you look for a weekly salery then no this is not for you. But please don’t leave out I make 25% on my customers some large. And I make that without sponsoring anyone.
I wonder where you work.. Or the other people.
The existence of retail sales doesn’t negate the rest of the compensation plan.
You yourself state you make peanuts if you don’t sponsor anyone. If the bulk of the money being made within Syntek requires the recruitment of others, then they have a problem.
This is the MLM my sister got signed up with. I’ve been pretty skeptical of their product because all I’ve ever heard about it is “so-and-so says they’ve improved their gas mileage by 5 MPH.” I have never seen any independent studies showing whether this stuff works or not.
The problem with fuel economy is that it is very subjective, and depending on how you drive, what time of year it is, and hundreds of other conditions your gas mileage will vary quite a bit.
The literature provided by Syntek says that if you start using their product, one of three things will happen: Your fuel mileage will increase immediately, your fuel mileage will stay the same for a while and then start to increase, or your fuel mileage will drop and then increase.
The problem with this is that this could be expected by any vehicle not using the stuff over a period of time. The only truly scientific way to test this stuff would be to track several vehicles over the period of a year to get a good baseline MPG, then track the fuel mileage while using XFT for a year to see if there’s a definite increase.
Lastly, what brought up the snake oil red flags for me is that supposedly a tiny amount, about 1 oz. of XFT is supposed to treat an entire 20 gallon tank of fuel. The Syntek literature seemed to imply that as soon as this tiny amount of product touches the fuel, then the entire tank is protected. This goes against science which suggests that it would have to be stirred or mixed in.
Plus, the high cost of the product rings warning bells, and statements from the company that “it’s not sold in stores because if we put it on the shelf next to a cheaper product, people will buy the other product even though ours is better.”
I’m not convinced it’s totally snake oil, but I’m definitely not convinced that it works at all.
1 oz in a 20 gallon tank? That’s called “pixie-dusting”. Bogus!
Just a note on the mixing issue, I used to drive a Mini that needed lead replacement additive. On a 20L tank you’d fill ‘er up then just add a tiny amount of lead additive directly into the tank.
I’m guessing the momentum of the car mixed it up pretty quickly as there were never any issues I could see.
Lead replacement is different. Lead replacement is to prevent “knocking” by RAISING the auto-ignition point. Syntek is claiming to do the exact OPPOSITE!
I was just talking in terms of the mixing issue raised. I don’t know enough to make a call either way on the effectiveness of the product itself.
Metal-based octane booster resist auto-ignition better, and can be used in very low concentrations (Wiki says 1:1260 for TEL, i.e. “lead” in leaded gasoline).
The point is it’s easy to RAISE the auto-ignition points and flash points, but it’s almost impossible to lower them. Syntek’s chemistry is bogus.
No, it’s less than 1 oz. per 20 gallons. According to their website, a 2 oz. bottle treats 160 gallons. So it would be 1/8th of a fl. oz. to treat 20 gallons of fuel. I know the single-dose sample packets my sister gave me didn’t hold much liquid.
On the other hand, when I was having fuel problems with my truck, I bought 16 oz. cans of Sea Foam fuel treatment for around $9 apiece. That, and some STP treatment which was a couple dollars cheaper, seemed to do the trick, but 16 oz. in 20 gallons seems to make far more sense than a tiny 1/8th oz. packet.
Again, what raised the snake oil flags was some of the literature from Syntek which seemed to imply that as soon as the tiny bit of XFT touches the fuel in the tank, it does magically does something to the molecules in the fuel to make them burn better, yada yada yada.
I don’t remember exactly what it said but sounded kind of woo-ish.
Or I think that might be 1/4 oz. Sorry, I’m not that great at math, but at any rate, I don’t think a few drops of fluid in 20 gallons of fuel is going to do much.
AFAIK Sea Foam is a carbon deposit cleaner, nothing more. Any mileage gain you get from it is incidental.
It says it cleans carbon deposits, removes water from fuel, and a few other things that’s also claimed of XFT. However, it’s far cheaper for a 16 oz. can of Sea Foam than it is for a 2 oz. bottle of XFT.
My truck wasn’t running and was parked for a while, and after it was repaired it started running rough, with rough idle, cylinder misfires, etc. I believe the old gasoline was starting to gum up and turn to varnish and probably gummed up the engine. It took several treatments of the Sea Foam to get it running well again.
But I’m sure that a 16 oz. can of product will have far more effect than 1/4 oz in 20 gallons. Unless they’re going to try to use the homeopathic argument and say that the more diluted the product is, the stronger it is.
Just talked to my nephew today and asked him if my sister was still selling XFT. He said he hadn’t seen anything about it for a while and hadn’t heard her talk about it, and thinks that it may have imploded.
I still see ads for it online and their website is still up, so it could be that everyone locally who was involved in it has gotten out. Looks like they’ll have to look for the next big thing.
Chang, is your purpose to discredit and dispel or are you neutral just pointing out the facts.
You have done a lot of research to make a point that this product has absolutely no value and is a complete sham! Is there ANY credibility to the claims of performance associated with this product?
The concept is a great one and while some folks may not totally agree with the compensation plan, it is an opportunity where none existed before that may offer income to people who could benefit from this marketing/product area.
Would you please offer your opinion on some pros as well as cons? I am impressed with your fact finding skill.
I’ve never seen any independent, scientific, double blind tests which actually shows that XFT improves your gas mileage at all (or not).
When I’ve asked Syntek affiliates, they always made vague references to scientific studies but the only ones I could find were ones made by Syntek Global. Most of the marketing spiel consisted of, “Joe Blow down the street tried it and he’s getting 3 MPG more than he was before.”
As we all know, testimonials are completely unreliable.
At one point I was going to run my own test but circumstances prevented me from finishing it.
The simple fact is that 1/4 oz. of product is unlikely to make much of a difference at all when mixed with 20 gallons of fuel. And seeing how subjective fuel mileage can be to begin with, it’s entirely possible that any observed increase was likely to happen anyway.
If the AG issued the CID on July 6, this means Zeek knew for 5 weeks without informing affiliates. We knew nothing about the CID until Al informed Oz about the FaceBook post.
How could Troy and Laggos not know about the CID before their “predictions.” How about Dawn or Douglas not mentioning this in the pow wows. Where is HippieDiva know, and Douglas who took a leave for personal problems during this time?
From a talk with my nephew, he said that his dad (my brother-in-law) took apart the engine from his truck in which they had been using XFT ever since they got into Syntek Global, and the engine was completely dirty and gunked up inside.
It apparently didn’t have any effect in cleaning the engine like is claimed of the product. I know this is just one isolated case, but to me it shows that XFT doesn’t really have any benefit at all.
I certainly haven’t found any.
Without a proper product to sell, any comp plan is “cart before the horse”.
I am a distributor and a proud one for that matter. We tried the product on our infinity FX45 and I tel you what, by the 3rd treatment, we did an extra 80km on the full tank.
Tell me this is snake oil and I would laugh at you. I know students in Africa that are earning over 20k a month as distributors. Sit there talk BS while we make money as partners in selling a great product
Is the product worth it or not? Considering the amount of fuel you could buy with the money used in purchasing the product???
Unless you do a double-blind test (i.e. you started measuring mileage in a dozen different cars, and without the owner’s knowing, you added this whatever to their car at one point, while leaving the rest alone, as well as telling some that you added whatever when you didn’t) your anecdotal evidence only applies to yourself, not anyone else.
One data point does not make a pattern.
Ah, the “it paid (somebody)” excuse. I know of people who made money selling illegal stuff. So what?
i have tested this product in india in 150 cc bike which was giving me the regular millage of 40 to 42km per ltr.
after using XFT it gave me 45km for 1st ltr 53km by using 2nd ltr 43 in by using 3rd ltr 53km by using 4th ltr 58km by using 5th ltr 52 km by using 6th ltr.and 63 on the 7th ltr. and now it is almost 20 days i am using it last time it gave 63 km for one ltr.
so we all can see that there is a jump of approx 25% and the engine behaves like new motorbikes engine.
Frankly, at this point I’d say that it’s not worth paying $70 for a bottle of this stuff when there are no scientific studies showing that it absolutely increases fuel mileage, and all the “evidence” that Syntek reps ever give are anecdotal stories about increased fuel mileage (like Shy gave above).
I think you’re better off paying for cheaper products such as fuel injector cleaners which have shown to actually work rather than paying high prices for a product which you basically apply with an eye dropper to a tank of fuel and the effectiveness of which is in question.
Think about it, do you think adding 1/4 oz. of XFT to a 20 gallon tank is going to magically clean out carbon deposits in your engine?
Read my comment above about what my nephew said. True, it’s only one instance so can’t really be considered scientific, but it’s one instance where the product didn’t do what is claimed of it. And my sister and her husband were fanatical XFT users and Syntek reps, so I know they were adding that stuff to their fuel tanks all the time. Yet the engine of his truck was still dirty with carbon deposits and sludge.
You be the judge.
Again, this is just another anecdotal story. As KSChang pointed out, one data point does not make a pattern.
For every anecdotal story about improved fuel economy, I can probably find a story where it was tried and nothing changed.
Oh and I’ll say that a jump of 25% is quite a significant increase, so color me skeptical. Especially when most Syntek distributors and literature promised about a 3-5 MPG increase.
Joe Mama, whether you like it or YES, as long as the masses of those who use XFT are satisfied, you have no point as a judge. Syntek did not bring XFT out for your personal use, so you can decide to make all the scientific and irrational comments and analysis you want, i know K. Chang is on your side…..
COME to Africa and see how many 10,000 – 20,000 dollars a month we are making here thanks to the best compensation plan i have ever come across, have you studies the british FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS comp. plan before, you have to sell as if you are MAD just to make 4 credit points in a month.
that is pure wickedness, in SYNTEK, sponsoring moves the product more in bulk than by selling and we in AFRICA and GHANA to be precise are really blessed to have come in contact with XFT cos it has really brought relief to our engines.
it is rapidly changing the lives of we the then unemployed GRADUATES and underpaid workers not to talk of students who are still and presently making between 1500 – 3000 dollars a month in team or binary commissions alone……..
Are you making your money recruiting members or selling the product to actual retail customers (not your downline)?
Ah, the old “we’re making money” and “it’s changing lives” arguments. I don’t care if you make millions selling the stuff, it doesn’t prove that it works as advertised or is worth the money people are paying for it. That’s what I’ve been primarily concerned about.
All I know is that I’ve never seen any evidence that XFT actually works, and instead I know my brother-in-law took his engine apart after using it for months and it was gunked up and dirty.
This is only one single instance, but if XFT doesn’t clean this engine, what makes anyone think that it would clean any other engine?
Oz, you make me laugh, we sponsor not recruit, if you recruit someone, that person works for you but in sponsoring, you are giving someone the opportunity to do what you are doing to become successful…..
In actual sense, we only recommend XFT to retail or big commercial customers and we get paid a 25% instant commission that is also residual as long as the company continues to purchase XFT.
We actually don’t depend on our downlines to sell for uplines or to make it in this business like people say because it works on a binary, and your downline actually happens to be on only 1 leg of yours, so if you don’t work and think you will get paid that is pure deceit to urself.
the binary requires every one to help his/her downline to succeed if only you must succeed since the person is new to the business and needs help to get to the top…..
please study our compensation plan very well and you will know that by recruiting people, we move more of the product than selling because XFT is part of the registration starter pack anyone picks up from the company on his/her first day and as such its more faster that way to sell to people by direct selling on retail to attract other customers as well as retail partners to sponsor and afterwards your main objective is to recruit and get paid.
Joe Mama, if you don’t care like you just said, why not leave us and those who care to care about what they want and you and the others go think about sea forms and more important things in your life.
LEAVE US ALONE, for us, we say XFT IS MAGICAL, i don’t know which part of this statement you don’t understand. PLEASE GOOGLE PT PAMA, the worlds largest goldmine in indonesia and check how many years they have been using XFT, it has saved them over 17millions dollars in repair costs alone.
and it is against this history that, some of us in ghana are able to send XFT to big companys like goldmines and after testing they give us huge rewards for bringing XFT to them, that is even minus the 25% commissions syntek will pay us.
All I know is that I’ve never seen any evidence that XFT actually works, and instead I know my brother-in-law took his engine apart after using it for months and it was gunked up and dirty.
This is only one single instance, but if XFT doesn’t clean this engine, what makes anyone think that it would clean any other engine?
JOE MAMA, how would you see any evidence if you have decided to use 1 instance of you brother-in-law’s engine to generalize the power of XFT, which in any case i doubt its truth, what you must know is that, what works for you does not work for someone, and let me tell you also that, XFT must be used the right way to achieve optimum results….
and also here the argument that how can a 1/4 ounze of XFT treat up to 20 gallons of petrol or diesel…..there and then i realize people have never been to the kitchen before……
if an excess pint of salt can destroy a whole pot of soup and destroy its taste, who told you that XFT can do what it does and will continue to do…..4 YOUR INFORMATION, XFT contains an INORGANOMETTALIC COMPOUND DEVELOPED BY THE 2 MOST BRILLIANT CHEMISTS ON EARTH for which they won a noble prize for.
This compound forms the basis of the magical XFT, and its upon this seven strong componenets that XFT does what it does because almost every component has its main use in the engine and not the entire engine.
JOE MAMA, as to the PRIZE of XFT, we all know AFRICANS are not that financially stable when it comes to the economy, but we are using XFT because it saves us more money than we spend to buy it, that is about 300% on investment, because if I used to drive 365km and it jumped to 435km after only the 3rd treatment of XFT.
do i also need to tell you what willhappen if get to the 5th treatment….ALSO, go and check most LUBRICANTS, FUEL STABILIZERS AND FUEL DETERGENTS ON THE MARKET as we speak, and you will realize that most of them are far more expensive than XFT though it combines almost all the componenets found in many FUEL ADDICTIVES on the market…
and it is only XFT which has also been intertionally accepted by the automobile giants like BENZ not to void their engines warranty if used by customers
I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY I KEEP TALKING SO MUCH TRYING TO CONVINCE YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT XFT IS, you and your brother-in-law should just be there whiles we KEEP ON enjoying this GOD-SENT addictive and make millions from it, like i also said before….JOE MAMA,
PLEASE LEAVE US THE ENTIRE XFT USERS ACROSS THE WORLD TO ENJOY WHAT WE FEEL AND 100% KNOW ITS WORKING FOR US AS WELL AS CHANGING OUR LIVES IN AFRICA….THANK YOU…HAHAHA
K. CHANG, One data point does not make a pattern.
If you know this fact, then don’t also say Metal-based octane booster resist auto-ignition better, because, from the automobile company where i used to work, that was questionable and at a point, we stopped relying on such boosters.
So you see, every product has its question marks, go check the same EPA list you gave us, there are equally marketed products in the world claiming to increase mileage, SO WHATS YOUR PROBLEM, go and develop yours if YOU SO DESIRE
SO WE CHERISH OUR XFT LIKE THAT, and XFT does not actually INCREASE or DECREASE MILEAGE, SO WHAT?
It is never true you make peanuts when you don’t recruit anyone, I introduced XFT to my mum, after she was convinced after using it, she recommended it to her former and presnet companies respectively, she gets 25% each from the 2 companies to a tune of 2,200 dollars though she has only recruited 2 people….this is an amount i used 4 months to get receive though i recruited 11 new people into my team.
Please, go read our compensation plan very well, the first person to start the XFT business in ghana made a 50,000 dollars last august ending alone with 28,000 coming from customers 25% commissions, subtract and see that even without sponsoring or recruiting anyone, he makes 28,000 dollars just because he recommended XFT to 3 separate gold-mines in ghana.
and that is an amount the 2nd person who joined after him is no where near despite being a former banker who has recruited 43 people into his organization, so you see, anyways you make money depending on who and how you do the business.
I will rather recruit or sponsor someone and get paid than to go roaming like an animal without aim and get paid. FYI, just by sponsoring more people, the product moves faster than selling it directly because a lot of XFT is part of the start up package you receive upon registering with just $298 or $598 which gives you about 10,000% interest when you follow the system very well.
i used only three months to become a RUBY RANK DISTRIBUTOR receiving $1,100 in INFINITY BONUS ALONE, HOW MUCH DO PEOPLE MAKE IN A WHOLE MONTH from working as EMPLOYEES, where as my RUBY RANK binary commission is a $2,000 minimum.
ALSO, go and check almost all the major M.L.M companies and then you would notice that, SELLING more product and meeting a required target in a month is the only and ultimate way to get PAID.
meaning NO SALES NO PAY, but in syntek, YOU EITHER SPONSOR TO AUTOMATICALLY MOVE MORE OF THE PRODUCT, OR RECOMMEND TO PERSONAL/COMMERCIAL CONSUMERS AND GET PAID….YOU DECIDE TO DO WHAT SUITS YOU BEST
@Benito — are you *sure* you are talking about XFT? Because what you said is exactly the OPPOSITE of what it says on its homepage.
From XFT homepage http://www.syntekglobal.com/products.html
This does NOT reduce autoignition as you said. it PROMOTES autoignition because it LOWERS the ingnition point.
So either THE company homepage is bogus, or you are bogus. Take your pick.
You’re telling us that you really NEED to be a part of a recruitment scheme to get some control over your own life, or something similar?
“Before I joined SynTek Global, I went roaming like a wild animal without aim, but now my goal is to recruit as many as I can into my downline”. Joining schemes is just your personal “find myself” solution?
SynTek seems to be a pyramid scheme, so when it collapses you’ll have to join a new one to keep the feeling of having a purpose in your life? And then join a new scheme, and so on and so forth when schemes collapses?
BTW, most of your long post is just meaningless rant about “my mum, the top leader, a former banker” and how happy they are. It contains very little factual info, but lots of possible misunderstandings, e.g. “recommended XFT to 3 separate gold-mines in ghana”.
You’re telling us that if you introduce a pyramid scheme to companies with many employees then you’ll probably make a lot in commissions from products, too? Or what are you trying to tell us there?
Actually your downline are in both legs.
Given that “succeed” here means “recruit”, I see.
Thanks for clarifying that the name of the game is recruitment. Affiliates purchsing product isn’t retail, which is the problem here.
And I quote…
If the majority of income is being derived via recruitment, then it’s a pyramid scheme that will collapse when you run out of members to recruit.
That’s how pyramid schemes work…
Any product moved via the recruitment of new members does negate the fact you’re earning off the recruitment of new members.
Sidenote: Benito if you want to continue to add to the discussion here quit ranting about irrelevant nonsense and lay off the capslock key.
It matters because you’re marketing it as a fuel additive guaranteed to increase fuel mileage. If it doesn’t do what you claim it does, then that’s false advertising. It’s an illegal and deceptive business practice.
Perhaps you don’t care because you’re making money, but I have a conscience. I won’t sell something to someone if I don’t think it works like the official advertising literature says.
Of course, you apparently don’t really care about whether it works or even selling the product because your post is all about how you’re recruiting people to make lots of money, typical of scammy pyramid MLM schemes.
And if you read everything I wrote in this thread, my sister and her husband were Syntek affiliates. They believed 100% in their product and were totally enthusiastic about it. That is, until they realized they weren’t making money.
I asked him to provide some verifiable facts about the 3 goldmine customers (or whatever they were, customers or participants).
His post contained lots of misleading info, e.g. “stories” that only had been verified by himself. He will either have to drop that strategy or provide some more info about it, something that makes it become less misleading.
Benito told some unverified “stories”, and I asked him about one of them, the story about the 3 goldmines. If he like to tell stories, then he should also be prepared to fill in enough details to avoid any misunderstandings, and also make it possible to verify the facts in the story.
Unverified stories are rather meaningless, other than as a tool to mislead people in marketing. In Benito’s case, the stories were directly connected to markerting efforts, e.g. to visualize possible commissions from sale (rather than from recruitment). That type of stories needs to be verified if anyone asks about it.
FREEEDOM OF SPEECH
To be able to protect “Freedom of Speech” and other fundamental rights, people will first have to identify what those rights are about, so they don’t protect something meaningless rather than “the real thing”.
Unverifiable stories belongs in another category than Freedom of Speech, probably in the “Freedom of Spamming” or something. That right is usually handled in the same places as “Freedom of Whining”.
Note: Eskimo, Benito and Ag_M (no published post, third attempted identity) are all posting from the same IP address and are the same person.
I’ve marked all replies as spam except Benito’s original comments. Most likely they can’t remember the fake email address they used for Benito so we won’t be hearing from them again.
Interesting how members of MLM businesses pushing a product and recruitment into said business have to resort to deceptive tactics like sock puppeting. That, and the attitude of “who cares if it really works or not?” ought to push people far away from the business and its products.
I think this site us not a fair site. When it’s against xft it’s a fair comment. When the xft guys reply then h find if offensive and give them warning.
I think I believe them more than chang, joe Mama and the rest. Some may be happy with the products whilst others may be skeptical about it. That is life.
Trouble is it wasn’t “guys”, it was one person, using multiple usernames attempting to drum up support for their point of view (and effectively having a conversation with themselves).
Or in other words, spam.
I don’t see why you’d believe someone who can’t even cite his own company’s webpage properly and came up with his own explanation.
I like your review about xft. You guys are pointing out interesting situations. I’m also a distributor of xft. If I understand you well you want scientific evidence that xft works. you want verifiable information that companies are using it and it actually does what it says.
I also agree with what the user benito said but he or she would have provided the name of the goldmines and I could try to verify that as I’m in Ghana too though I’m from Benin.
My sponsor, Mr Tohouenou Francis, who is also the top distributor in Benin with the rank Jade has shown me several times how much he earns monthly for his backoffice. I have met several times some of the blue diamonds in Ghana and they talk about their monthly paid.
One of them was the marketing manager of the network company Zain now Airtel in Ghana. I know that people are making money out of it. I also earned from selling the 10 ml xft I got when I bought my fast start kit. Of course you cannot verify what I’m saying. The question is how effective is the product?
I know something for sure if a product does not work, people from my county will buy it 2 times. But I see my people asking for xft after using it for the first time. So I conclude that they have seen a change that is why they buy it.
They even nicknamed it “magic product” because they cannot mention well xft. So they prefer referring to it by what it does for them. That information too you cannot verify.
I decided to comment because you said Eskimo, Benito and Ag_M is one person. I just want to tell you that It could be 3 differents people (friends all distributor of syntek global) using the same computer. That is why you are seeing the same IP address. May be they used fake emails. I will be back.
Having run blogs for a number of years I’m gunna go with “no”.
It’s not the first time someone without a basic understanding of IP addresses has tried to present themselves as different people to support their comments on here, and it probably won’t be the last.
In anycase, three different people standing around the same computer egging eachother on and nodding their heads in agreement isn’t really any different to one person creating bogus identities.
Again, I don’t care how much money people are making selling the stuff, it doesn’t prove that it actually works. People have bought bogus products for years. The “alternative medicine” sellers are constantly making tons of money selling bogus quack “cures.”
The main problem with products like this is the confirmation bias of people who spend a lot of money on a product, so then convince themselves that it works in order to justify spending so much on the product.
The thing is that fuel economy is so subjective to so many factors that it’s perfectly normal for a vehicle’s MPG to vary around 5 MPG or so. But 5 MPG is the improvement often claimed of XFT.
It was also claimed by a rep that the stuff cleans carbon deposits out of engines, yet my brother-in-law took his engine apart after using the stuff for about a year or so (when my sister was selling it) and the engine parts were still dirty and gunked up. So in at least one case it failed to work as advertised.
Then there’s also the claim that a quarter fluid oz. of the stuff is supposed to treat 20 gallons of fuel. Even if the stuff did work, it would be so diluted as to be totally ineffective. It would be like putting a pinch of salt in 5 gallons of water and expecting it to taste salty.
At any rate, my sister quit selling it and lost money in the deal, and I don’t think anyone else around here is still selling it either. Obviously it’s not as great a product as they made it out to be, since nobody’s using it and nobody made money from selling it.
Except SynTek Global, of course, which is the whole point of why places like BehindMLM.com need to exist.
Well of course. But no affiliates around here made money selling it. Just another pyramid-type scheme to get money from people who want to make money.
I still remember the very first thing the guy giving the presentation asked me and the other guy there: “How would you like to stop making your house payment?” I really wish I’d just told him right then & there that starting his presentation off with an appeal to greed is just plain tacky.
I wonder if he’s paid off his house yet.
Hi all, I must say it has been very interesting reading all your opinions. I have been researching this product now for 12 months and must say was very skeptical at first until I ACTUALLY TESTED IT myself! I drive a Lexus and absolutely love the treatment and have been using now for over 12 months.
As for the business side of things all skeptics please explain how selling this product and earning 25% commissions instantly is a pyramid scheme?
How is this different to my husband’s worldwide sales business where he has a very successful sales team internationally selling equipment by commission only?
After being closely involved with his company for 10 years I can tell you there is absolutely no difference at all. His company provides sales training, guidance and incentives and his staff are not required to buy up front products which makes his sales team earn very large commissions just exactly the same as Syntek Global compensation does.
Now, I guess I’m lucky to see things from a different point having known someone in the direct sales industry so I can compare the two different businesses. For those skeptics I suggest you at least research large successful commission only sales companies and you will see that there is no difference at all.
I see salespeople earning $300,000 a year working for my husband that were once earning $500 as truck drivers so I see how commission sales can change people’s lives.
My husband’s company does not sponsor people or have a binary tree etc, however Syntek Global does not require you to either. It is totally up to the individual to grow their team to eventually earn a percentage off their team or simply sell commercially or directly to customers earning a 25% commission.
I bet my husband’s sales people would love to earn a percentage of their team also though…who wouldn’t!
I actually think it is a wonderful idea so normal everyday people with goals and dreams can make money without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in franchising costs or businesses when there is absolutely no guarantee that these large business purchases will succeed. Unfortunately, most of the time they do not.
I laugh when I see people still refer to “pyramid schemes”. Pyramid schemes are illegal and were back in the days when there was no product to sell.
I understand people’s negativity and skepticisim however I have not found another business out there similar to my husband’s where normal people can make some fantastic money without having to pay a fortune for set up costs and products.
As for the product, I vouch that it is a wonderful product and my Lexus has come back from service every time clear as a whistle in perfect condition (and no its not a new car but 6 years old now).
At the same time I know I’m helping a friend’s business grow and fulfill their dreams too. As for testing I found a great article in a fairly recent Jaguar Magazine giving XFT the thumbs up after positive tests results.
I went with XFT after at least I was able to see a lot of documented information unlike normal products you just see on the shelves.
Hope I have helped…:)
ORLY? Sounds to me like apples and oranges.
According to the comp plan you do. You need to recruit 2 new members to get that binary kickstarted, at which point your capped at $500 a month.
That’s about as funny as your antiquated definition of a pyramid scheme.
No, not really.
Your spiel sounds no different than the other sales pitches mixed with appeals to greed that I’ve heard from people in this pyramid scheme.
On the internet, anyone can be anyone or anything they want to be, so color me skeptical of your claims of Lexus driving or earning $300K a year. Even if that’s true, it doesn’t mean that the product is any good or worth me putting any money into.
The simple fact is that a lot of people around here bought into the pie-in-the-sky dreams of “owning their own business” and making money hand over fist while doing little, yet the reality is that they all lost money on the deal because after they recruited everyone they convince to throw money into the scheme, there was nobody left to recruit and nobody was buying the stuff they were selling.
That’s the major flaw with all multilevel marketing. If you saturate the market with distributors all selling the same product, eventually you’re going to run out of enough customers to keep them all in business. All you have left is claims of making tons of money and driving a Lexus.
All of my vehicles do, too, and I’ve never used the stuff. In fact, any vehicle with regular maintenance should run OK for years. But did they ever take the engine apart and see what it looks like inside?
I’d bet that it has the same amount of carbon deposits or oil gunk as any other vehicle its age.
have read all your posts, I’ve been involved in this network to italy and use the product. It seems that my car is better, but always doubts.
I saw this as a good job but …. I doubt if I do not, The only thing my car if I keep it anymore km mistake?
A better question is… does this *really* work, and if it does, why haven’t the governments used it? They have a lot more vehicles than you and me, yes?
Few things to mention:
1. The MLM opportunity was created for the product. The product has been around for 20 years and the MLM opportunity for almost 5yrs
2. There are very few MLM companies that offer 100% satisfaction guarantee. This is one of them.
3. There is a lot of testing and data for this product.
4. A lot of money is made by distributors just by selling the product and not making people buy into the opportunity.
5. Yes, the product has been registered by EPA
6. Why does the government not use it? Shows you how smart our government is. LOL
Strangely, all the info I find says Syntek was founded in 2008. How could it be around for 20 years?
Really, list them please? Why are they NOT on the company website?
And your proof of this is what exactly?
All fuel supplements needs to be registered… whether they work or not. It just proves (or disproves) lack of toxicity.
Sorry, your counterpoints are rather… weak.
I am very tired of reading comments on websites like this by people who have not even tried a certain product–what is your basis for criticism except your own bias?
I happen to sell XFT and I did not start selling it until all 3 of our personal vehicles showed drastic improvement. My husband’s 3/4 ton pickup took several tanks to clean out the engine and the MPG actually dropped–tho discouraged, he kept using it and finally the mileage went up 22%.
We saved $37.00 on the gas minus $5.75 for the XFT = over #31.00 in savings–this is a big tank, 34 gal, but the % doesn’t change. The XFT 1/4 oz–costs about $3.20 cents for a 20 gal tank.
We also used it in his Corvette which was not happy unless it was running on high test. With XFT, we can use regular and it runs like a top and we gained 6 MPG. Anecdotal? Yes it is, but it’s also money in our pocket!
And yes, you can make money just selling the product. Customers are on a monthly autoship and I get my commission every month–and why do they get the product every month? Because it works!!! People aren’t going to keep spending $ on something that doesn’t work.
Syntek has hundreds of test results–tell me what you want to see and I’ll post them to you. Furthermore, the product is GUARANTEED!!!If you want your money back, you get it back!!
So quit criticizing something you know absolutely nothing about and give it a try–put your money where your mouth is and if you don’t get results–I’ll refund your $!
You can but there’s far more incentive to recruit affiliates and whack them on autoship.
Out of curiosity, how many retail customers do you have vs. recruited affiliates?
When evaluating MLM “opportunities” it’s not so much a matter of what individual members “DO” as much as what people “CAN” do.
If a company such as SynTek allows the recruiting to be the main source of income for its’ distributors, then potential new members should be aware:
* such practice is illegal
* they (new distributors) will be disadvantaged by the “recruiting only” nature of the others within the company.
* “market saturation” does NOT mean product saturation. It means a great many potential customers have been exposed to the “opportunity” and will naturally link the product with being offered the “opportunity”
After all, did “It’s not Amway is it” become part of the national lexicon because everyone has tried their product or because EVERYONE has been approached by a recruiter ??
A MLM company can easily increase ITS’ turnover by opening up new markets, as Amway has done.
Individual distributors are the ones affected by recruiting/market saturation, ESPECIALLY when the same or similar products can be purchased in retail quantities of one without any “autoship” requirements.
I am very tired of reading “testimonials” offered by fans of Syntek, who clearly have not heard of “anecdotal fallacy”.
My basis for criticism is the bull**** science claimed by the official company website.
I’m tired of the “People are making money on it” claims as if that means it’s a valid product. Back in the 70’s people made money selling pet rocks but that didn’t mean they were useful.
The bottom line is that fuel efficiency is very subjective to a lot of factors and it will normally vary by quite a bit, and all the claims made by Syntek make it look like snake oil.
Lastly, I know of at least one instance where constant use of XFT did not clean out an engine like is claimed of the product. That is, it didn’t work as claimed. So why should I buy the stuff (even if I could find someone selling it around here) anyway?
Whoa!! I think some of you are awfully wrought up over this. So, to answer some of your questions… I am someone’s “downline” and I do not understand what you mean by being “whacked by autoship”–I don’t see what that has to do with anything and I would not put up with being “whacked” in any sense!!
As far as the MLM itself, buying a distributorship is very inexpensive–just over $300.00 and you get almost $100.00 of product to sell or use. The “back office” is very well organized and they pay the monthly commissions right on time. Easy to get them on the phone…
Pamapersada is the largest mining CONTRACTOR in the world–they manage mines for many other companies–so 1 point for the semantics guy out there. I only have clients–no downlines and am okay with that–no one has ever put pressure on me to sign up new distributors.
However, if you wish to build a network, there are people making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year–so I don’t see what your complaint is about Syntek’s system is. I think it’s funny that you believe anecdotal info from someone who says XFT didn’t work but not from someone who says it did the job!
And lastly, I am a firm believer in trying to rescue our environment and have seen enough actual, real test results on emissions after using XFT that I want to keep getting new people to use it.
So in closing, I’m just asking you guys to use the education I’m assuming you received and don’t judge something without having first hand knowledge of it. You won’t like this, but I have neither the time nor the energy to argue these points ad infinitum, so please forgive me as I unjoin this site.
I think (some of) you are in denial and cannot deal with facts, there choose to ignore facts and debate fiction instead.
I don’t believe you or them. I might believe a real scientific double-blind large sample size test done by a neutral third-party with results that can be studied and verified and verifiable credentials of fairness and testing. Does Syntek have any of those?
Besides, who said “it doesn’t work here?” Or did you just invented “someone who says XFT didn’t work” out of thin air? Or perhaps you’re not referring to us, which makes your comment completely irrelevant?
But let’s get back to real facts for the moment… The bull**** science on Syntek’s homepage is just that: bull****.
Simple verification with wikipedia and any chemistry book would tell you it’s bull****. Yet somehow you manage to ignore all those clues and chose to believe what you *thought* you observed.
That poster in Mulder’s FBI office really applies to you, it seems.
I’m just asking you (guys) to use the education I’m assuming you received and use some common sense along with it to know that the alleged fancy words on Syntek’s own homepage is IMPOSSIBLE based on simple chemistry / combustion / ignition, and therefore their product could NOT possibly work the way they claimed.
And thus, any sort of “results” you allegedly observed (“first hand knowledge”) clearly must be attributed to something else, which makes the whole thing a fraudulent lie, including your entire rebuttal.
You posted your comment here without joining anything. You haven’t “proven” anything either. All you did was claimed that your personal observation is more believable than any evidence to the contrary, which is anecdotal fallacy. When confronted with that data, you left in a huff, conceding the field.
K. Chang’s first comment on this was made on October 26th, 2011 at 12:13 pm, since then, it’s almost one and a half year. People commented against XFT doesn’t try to check it themselves and seems to deliver an argument for the sake of argument nothing else.
I’m from Pakistan where XFT doesn’t exist but I heard it from some of my facebook friends living in India. In my opinion, someone should try it by-self and then makes his or her’s statement on that.
Argumenting without testing by self is just baseless. Sorry for my bad english because it’s not my language.
In other news, no change to the XFT compensation plan.
“No recruitment = no success”.
@fawad: What makes you think we haven’t tried it ourselves? When my sister was selling it she gave me some sample packs. I used it in our car but didn’t notice any change in gas mileage at all.
And read up for my comments about her husband taking his engine apart after using it and finding the engine hadn’t been cleaned out at all, despite the claims of it cleaning out engine deposits.
@Joe Mama: You didn’t mention it earlier that you too experienced it and found nothing. And as far as engine deposits are concerned, that was a duty of lubricant you used because engine lubricants have detergents to cleans the engine. If it didn’t do, then it’s your lubricant’s responsibility not of fuel additive like thing.
Any other gentleman who tries it? Kindly post your results before your anger.
@fawad: The way XFT was presented to me was not only as a fuel additive which lubricates engine parts, but also as an additive which cleans carbon and other engine deposits, thereby improving fuel economy.
I point you to Syntek’s own website http://www.syntekglobal.com/products.html:
“Detergents, demulsifiers, rust & corrosion inhibitors, lubricating agents, and polymerization retardants work together to keep things clean…”
So if they say that this product keeps engines clean, and someone finds that the inside of their engine is dirty after using the product for about a year, then it’s not doing what it’s advertised to do.
That, and the fact that the recommended dose of XFT is 1/4 fl. oz. for 20 gallons of fuel indicates that there’s not enough of it in the fuel to make a difference one way or another.
The burden of proof is upon those making the claims about the product, and I’m simply providing evidence that it doesn’t do what they say it does.
My comment was about how the corporate explanation is impossible and makes no sense.
If it makes sense to you, you probably don’t live on this planet.
THEY created the product. It is up to them to prove their product works. THEY have no credibility until they establish some.
I think if we hold on to the title of this blog(No recruitment = No success) , I would say that the blogger is right.
As a distributor I noticed that there are more interest in recruiting than selling XFT. So most distributor focus only on the recruitment side and give up on the profit from selling so that their customer can buy it at a relatively cheaper price.
I did that too and I realized that, that is what other distributors are doing too. If really want to earn from that business you have to be the first on a market so that most distributors on that market will depend on you.
In my opinion, I thing Syntek Global is doing 2 businesses in 1 : the first and official one is selling xft and that second and most lucrative is a hidden lead system. That is what I realised and I got confused : continue or stop?
However, based on my customers experience I can say that the xft works in terms of fuel economy to be precise.
And since the recruitment is essential to making money as a distributor, we can conclude that Syntek is nothing more than a big pyramid scheme. In any market you’re only going to have a certain number of recruits, and once they’ve all been recruited the recruit market dries up and everyone goes broke.
Syntek sucks! Period. Ive tried it in 2005 dodge cummins with no gains. A friends 09 e350, no gain. An old gas 460 ford, felt some gain in power, buts thats it. Gave away most of my product, with mixed reviews.
Ive been in syntek for 2 years, they took all of my money in propay and overcharged me for their replicated generic websites. Poor member support. No user control on autoship, need to call in to cancel, etc. Majority of my recruits bailed.
Product is average, company is giving mlm a bad name.
I love XTREME FUEL TREATMENT and enjoying the business too.
Mr. Chang u can find out the registration of xtreme fuel treatment on the same link where u didnt found in previous. Please go through: epa.gov/otaq/fuels/registrationfuels/web-dies.htm#S
Syntek engine boost 2.0 and xtreme fuel treatment both are shown on this page. And please stop giving your over comments because the product is very effective and those who are using it are fully satisfied with that.
Read the book, big Australian scam with fuel additives.
Read the last comment left in 2007:
Old product, new badge, same scam
I found some interesting information about ferrocine tested as a fuel additive. From http://fpc1.com/sci_ferrocene.php:
Doesn’t sound to me like the claims of improved fuel economy of XFT are valid in any way, since controlled studies of its main ingredient tend to increase fuel consumption. And I was definitely told by a Syntek salesperson during the MLM sales pitch that it was safe for both gasoline and diesel engines.
The worst part is that the ferrocine in fuel tends to foul spark plugs as I’ve read in other places. In one study, spark plugs in an engine running ferrocine tended to need replaced at 10,000 miles, whereas normally they only need replaced every 100,000 miles.
Ferrocine tends to leave a conductive coating on the spark plugs which, if a spark plug is shorted out, makes it cease to fire.
Nope, not gonna use it in any of my engines.
So if Ferrocine is a scam (which it may or may not be, I have no idea), you conclude that XFT is also a scam?
(Ozedit: No. Try actually reading the review before posting your spam.)
I just want to know what major US company is using this?
Back when my sister was in it, she said that some big mining company was supposedly using it. And perhaps some other company, I don’t remember exactly.
At any case, a large business using a product doesn’t mean that the product actually works.
I remember reading years ago about a quack mileage booster which fits into the air intake of vehicles, and some metropolitan city bought a ton of the devices and fitted them to their vehicles, but they didn’t actually work at all.
Syntek is not interested in commercial sales of this product in anyway or tune.
They are all about driving enrolment volumes and only that, they target African countries because people are easily led down the garden path in these places.
I’m from Africa, Nigeria precisely and have seen so many people fall for these pyramid schemes.
They usually sell you products that appeal to better living and back their success story with questionable testimonials.
The reason I found this site was curiosity, I couldn’t get any factual scientific backing from the Syntek Global website, so I searched for other people talking about it after someone tried to recruit me with bogus claims of the XFT product and others.
They talk about the company being around for 20years but the website says since 2008.
Seems like the people trying to sell the brand around these parts don’t even know what they’re talking about so they focus on selling you “how much money you can make” by being recruited and recruiting.
And I ask “when everyone has been recruited who sells to who then?”.
I’m a Engineer by profession so I would want to verify all scientific claims especially when a student with no qualification is trying to sell me science but is really dangling a “better life” story in front of it.
After reading through these comments people like K. Chang and Joe Mama give me hope that the world isn’t totally ignorant.
Poverty has gotten the best of so many people so they jump at anything to make the money without weighing the possible outcomes.
That’s the idea behind this website.
Oz have simply looked at the types of questions people asked when he covered “Liberty League International” in Australia in 2009 — in a different blog.
Some people asked for factual information, some people had information to share, etc. — readers or contributors from many different countries, not only Australia.
BTW, this review is rather old, from October 2011.
You will never find any scientific proof from Syntek because all their claims are bogus.
Their formula had to change as well which meant that the claims of savings have disappeared. They are nothing but a pyramid scheme where very few people earn any money.
I did not want to comment but my conscience wouldn’t let me flip over this site that has some comments that are not in line with my first hand experience and that of so many initial skeptics but now regular consumers.
I want to unequivocally testify that XFT is out of this world and I have experienced positives beyond what the product claims to achieve.
I was skeptical but open minded and as such I used it under INTENSE scrutiny. My old power plant that could not power all my equipments without jerking and going off, started powering everything after less than 2weeks after I began using XFT.
That gave me confidence to apply it on my car and other equipments.
I gave it out for free to very strong skeptics so they wouldn’t think I just wanted their money, guess what? they came back for more even when I insisted on selling it a bit expensive.
They must all be stupid people right? Many strong skeptics are swallowing their pride today simply because they gave it a try and applied the correct dosage (double dose the first 3times of applying XFT).
The fuel economy for me, is at least 40%.
You’ll go blind if you keep doing that.
I keep seeing the same objection, that if recruitment is what the company is relying on to make a profit they have a problem, or words to that effect.
I think of it as rather a matter of building a customer base by adding the incentive of referral commissions. And while everyone with few exceptions has a clear opportunity to be a customer, not everyone is going to have a clear opportunity to earn money. It’s called saturation and that’s the bottom line.
But then that’s just how it is in any business. A company can only grow so big, after which they will not be hiring any new employees (or sales staff) But they will always be open to customer purchases. And that is the grist for the mill.
If the product is of good quality, has a high demand and it priced competitively, and enough people are aware of it, then it will continue to sell. And if it is a consumable it will sell repeatedly.
The incentive to buy the product should be a least as strong as any incentive to sell it.
So where is the problem if the company’s focus is on recruitment to build a large and growing customer base?
As long as there is value coming down equal to money paid up it is not a pyramid. And as long as that is the case then even at saturation it is still viable as a company if not an opportunity. And there are ways to reboot the opportunity and introduce new products and new matrices (eg a reverse commission plan where the bottom rung have first opportunity to recruit the new product line)
So what is the problem then if there is a focus on recruitment? That is the entire basis for referral marketing in the first place.
To recruit new members to refer new customers. Minimum quotas are standard in the sale industry so that is no legal issue. I admit I am at a loss to understand this objection.
As for this particular company, it’s long term viability relies entirely on the product which is dubious, over priced, making exaggerated claims with little compelling evidence.
And there are other similar products already being retailed by standard means, at similar or even lesser cost. But if their claims are true and the product is in fact superior to others of its kind then the company will survive network saturation as the bottom recruits will simply be customers with a no longer viable referral incentive.
Anyway maybe somebody can clear up my confusion here or is it just a matter of taking some definitions too literally and not looking at the bigger picture.
Affiliates your only customers = chain-recruitment pyramid scheme.
You need to have retail customers in MLM.
