Case Study – Vauxhall Astra
The following pictures are from an engine that had run for approx. 50,000 miles, before and after NanoVit treatment
 
Before
After
The NanoVit-Engine-Renovator and the Gear-Renovator products were used to treat the engine from a test Vauxhall Astra, the before and after power output of the engine was recorded. The maximum power output of the Astra before utilization was at 6,000 rpm. At this point it developed 55.5 KW. After utilization the car had its maximum power at 4,800 rpm with 57.1 KW developed – an improvement of 1.6 KW compared to before in peak power and a reduction in the required RPM to achieve it. The car is now typically driven at lower average rpm, which means more output, less fuel consumption, lower engine stress and a better acceleration rate / improved torque.
Before : max power 55.5 KW at 6,000 rpm.
After: max power 57.1 KW at 4,800 rpm.
Additionally, the car's emissions were monitored. It was noted that the exhaust gas profile improved indicating an improvement in the parameters affecting fuel combustion.

There was a reduction in Carbon Monoxide and evidence of improved combustion through lower Hydrocarbon values. This means a reduction in pollutants and toxins being emitted. The lower fuel consumption also means that less CO2 will be emitted by the car for the same distance travelled, improving the Carbon Emissions of the car.
Case Study – Wärtsilä 824 ZS
A Wärtsilä 824 ZS Main engine was the subjected of a prolonged study.
Data is summarised below. It is worth noting that the effects of NanoVit on efficiency are partly restorative, by rebuilding surfaces engine efficiency can be restored as well as additional efficiency gains being made possible through the technology
Case Study - Cargo Vessel
The application of NanoVit was performed by the Ship’s engineers under supervision. The main engine was a Pielstick (SEMT) 6 cylinder engine. In addition to the main engine, gear and auxiliary engines (Dong Yang China) were also treated. The data Collection was performed independently by the ship management company and Shell Lubricants.
 
Extensive data was collected and evaluated. The final economic evaluation is summarised below:
With the concentration of NanoVit used the engine treatment is warranted for 3 years or 15,000 hours of operation. The cost savings over 3 years would be €688,800.
The study demonstrated a strong economic case through cost savings. These were measured using empirical data on oil and fuel consumption, oil change frequency and reduced maintenance.

The case was additionally supported by data from oil analysis and engine output and condition measurement. The data was all independently collected and verified. The Ship management company recommended the product to the Ship owners for additional roll-out.
Case Study - Haulage
A Euro Class 3 MAN 1843 Truck had its engine (2876 LF 04, 12,816 cm3 capacity) and gear treated with NanoVit. The data for the study was collected and reported independently by Hause GmbH, Germany. The truck was constructed on 07/10/2002 and had a power rating of 338KW. It had covered 891,156 km at the time of treatment.
 
NanoVit Consumer products were used by the Truck mechanics to treat the vehicle. The following products were used:
Values for comparison were recorded before treatment, from 02/26/2008. The treatment took place on 03/19/2008 and then post-treatment values were recorded to 04/15/2008.
 
9 real journeys were recorded both before and after NanoVit treatment. This data was used to compare before and after figures for consumption (in Litres) based on distance travelled and weight carried (ton/km).

NanoVit was mixed into the engine and gear oil under normal operational conditions
The data is summarised for high, low and average values from the 9 comparison journeys made before and after treatment below:
Extending these actual figures into costs for 1 truck driving 100,000 miles, NanoVit demonstrates a significant saving
An additional test was performed on a smaller haulage appliance engine to demonstrate the effect of NanoVit on the engine output.

The target was to record results for the power parameters before and after the utilization. The test vehicle was 2 years old and in operation on European routes. The measurements were made at the vehicle level rather than on the isolated engine. Both engine and gear were treated with NanoVit.

There was a measured engine performance improvement of approximately 1,000 rpm in the lower rpm range. That means at 1,400 rpm full power is available. There was also a slightly higher peak output. This is consistent with other engine studies.
At the same time in the low rpm range there is significantly higher comparative engine performance
(an increase from 58 KW to 76 KW). This supports the fuel consumption reductions shown, as the engine consistently produces higher power output at lower rpm once treated with NanoVit.
Other engine parameters were measured before and after showing improvement in compression (approximately 16% overall) and a reduction in engine noise consistent with reduced vibration. 
TUV Germany, Independent Certified Study
TUV, a highly reputable independent verification authority tested NanoVit and conclusively demonstrated the claims for the material in an extensive series of tests. All the TUV results are available for download in the Test Reports section of the website.
