Bob Sikorsky: Family Car Can Last 1,500,000 Miles or a Lifetime
24 March 1997Top Auto Expert Claims Family Car Can Last 1,500,000 Miles or a Lifetime -- Whichever is Longer
MONROVIA, Calif., March 21 -- One of the nations top automobile experts, Bob Sikorsky, claims a family car can last 1,500,000 miles or a lifetime, if properly maintained and cared for in its interior mechanisms. Sikorsky, a car buff and owner of four not-so-expensive cars, is a highly respected best-selling author of such books as "How to Get More Miles Per Gallon in the 90's (McGraw-Hill/Tab 1991) and now in its 16th annual printing "Drive It Forever" (Final Frontier Media 1997). He is also a syndicated columnist of "Drive It Forever" and "Riding in Style" appearing in 115 newspapers, and a lecturer to conservation groups. His "Reader's Digest" article, "Highway Robbery: the Scandal of Auto Repair in America," for which he was selected by the magazine to research and write by spending two months criss-crossing America, is considered the most definitive study on this topic. It was the magazine's most publicized and most widely read article of the last 50 years. Sikorsky believes if car owners, no matter what kind of car, or year made, or style, would take a serious interest in their car engine, as they do with their own bodies, the car would run efficiently for scores of years. The cumulative expense of gasoline charges, repairs, and the cost of buying new cars every 100,000 miles or more, "is a total waste of a car owner's income or savings, or even the small amount of the value of trade-in," he says. "Clean healthy engines, proven performance products, fuel economy, and more horsepower from what you feed your car are as vital as the nutritional foods you feed yourself and your family," he adds. He recently gave an enthusiastic thumbs up for a revolutionary new "airborne fuel additive," after 18 months of experimentation with it in his own cars. This new additive known as "The Force" (for information call 800-41-FORCE) is only the third product he has ever publicly supported, asserting that the additive cleaned his engine from carbon, increased mileage, helped faster accelerations and created a healthier engine all around. Sikorsky's enthusiasm comes for the only fuel additive not poured in your gas tank. The additive is airborne and works by being placed within the car's air filter in a sausage-like casing which evaporates inside the engine. It was invented by Dr. Shui-Yin Lo, a nuclear and particle scientist-physicist, for American Technologies Group, Inc., a forward-thinking "clean science" environmental company, based in Monrovia, California. Sikorsky, who has appeared on such television programs as Regis & Kathy Lee, The Tonight Show, CNBC's Smart Money and others, has 4,000 car-owner members of a "High Car Mileage" club he founded in which members average from 250,000 to 1,500,000 miles on their cars. Take it from a man who knows, "live a long, healthy life and live it with your healthy car," says Sikorsky. SOURCE American Technologies Group, Inc.
