TURBO3000D improves product, reduces price

by James Menzies

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Often, when a company spends a great deal of time and money improving its product, those costs are passed onto the customer through a higher purchase price. In the case of TURBO3000D, however, the company’s latest offering has not only been improved, it’s being offered at a significantly lower cost.

The company’s new VADA unit was recently unveiled at the International Trucking Show in Las Vegas, and company president, Andy Matuch, insists customers can now realize significant fuel savings for a fraction of the cost of its predecessor. He’s willing to back those claims up with a no-hassle money-back guarantee for any driver who doesn’t realize a 10 per cent fuel savings within two months of installing the unit. And he adds many drivers will realize even higher savings than that.

“We’re very consistent in reaching about half a mile per gallon with everybody,” says Matuch.

In addition to providing better fuel mileage, the VADA unit also reduces emissions, according to the company.

“We’re doing emissions testing right now and we’re finding dramatic reductions in smoke opacity,” says Matuch. “Our product is helping to keep the environment clean, we’re reducing smoke, toxic emissions, NOx and we’re boosting fuel economy.”

The patented fuel savings device works by creating controlled turbulence in the fuel, which improves atomization.

“The fuel is delivered in a laminar state, just like water out of a garden hose and the fuel injector has to atomize that stream of fuel. The finer and wider it can make that stream, the better it burns,” explains Matuch. “The principle of the TURBO3000D is to take the fuel … and put it into a higher state of change, taking it closer to a transitional or turbulent state making the injectors job so much easier.”

While the original TURBO3000D has been on the market for several years, one of the drawbacks deterring many owner/operators from purchasing the unit was the price. Although the payback time was mere months on the original unit, many drivers were hesitant to sink US$399 into any product, regardless of the company’s promises.

That’s why the company began to explore its options to offer the device for a fraction of the original cost.

“Guys were coming to us and saying ‘Do you have a payment plan’ and at the time I said, ‘This is sad, we’ve got to do something,'” says Matuch. “The way we arrived at the TURBO3000D VADA was, we went to a new manufacturer and asked them to take a look at our product and see if there was any way to make our product for a lot less money without infringing on the quality.”

After more than three months of testing, a new manufacturer vowed to build the VADA unit for half the price, while improving the overall quality. The VADA unit is now made of stainless steel, which will outlast any truck engine, according to Matuch, and fuel system o-rings good to 3,000 PSI. The new unit boasts even better smoke opacity reductions than its predecessor, and the manufacturing cost savings are being passed on to the consumer.

“With our cost cutting, we did the opposite of what most manufacturers do, we didn’t say let’s keep the price the same, we said let’s reduce it and get this thing into everybody’s hands,” says Matuch.

The VADA unit can be added to a truck for less than US$200 including the installation kit, and the company is standing by its 10 per cent fuel savings guarantee. Matuch says customers can expect a payback period of six to eight weeks with the VADA.
