More on D-1280X and its benefits


When that item about D-1280X came out Tuesday in this space, some friends asked me if I was endorsing the product.

I said yes.

I am staking my reputation as a columnist by saying this, believing that D-1280X could be the answer to our problem of pollution caused by black smoke from jeepneys, buses and trucks.

I’ve seen how it works.

It worked wonderfully on my 10-year-old Toyota Land Cruiser engine, which is diesel-fed.

Not only has it decreased my fuel consumption by 20 percent, it has also cleaned my engine as a result of the complete disappearance of black smoke coming out of the muffler.

With a clean engine, my Toyota now purrs like a kitten, making me enjoy the music from my stereo more. Before, the music was drowned out by the engine vibration.

Eliminating engine pollution and big savings on fuel consumption—what more can you ask?

On June 5, 2009, the Philippine Coast Guard tested the product on one of its ships, the BRP Nueva Vizcaya.

I introduced Ray Horspool, president of D-1280X Philippines, to Adm. Willy Tamayo, Coast Guard commandant, who agreed to the test.

The BRP skipper, Capt. Ferdinand Velasco, reported these “significant observations” during the test:

– Emission of smoke considerably decreased.

– Engine vibration had decreased with a significant reduction in engine noise.

– Fuel consumption decreased.

– Engine ran smoothly.

Admiral Tamayo was so elated by the results of the test that he wanted to place orders with Horspool.

But then something happened.

A powerful individual, whose ire I had incurred for exposing the smuggling activities of his girlfriend, put a damper to Tamayo’s exuberance.

That individual learned that I was responsible for introducing Horspool to Tamayo.

The Coast Guard, which could have benefited from using D-1280X, shelved the project.

D-1280X was invented by Dr. Morton Fainman Sr. during World War II in answer to a demand for cheaper fuel.

The United States anticipated a prolonged war with Japan in the Pacific.

It was afraid that a huge consumption of fuel by Navy ships and Army land vehicles would make a toll on its war effort.

When the war suddenly ended with the dropping of atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, there was no longer any use for D-1280X.

The product came out of the shelf in the 1980s when the price of oil skyrocketed.

D-1280X is a nontoxic liquid which, if accidentally ingested, would not harm the person who swallowed it.

Now, if it can’t cause harm to the human body, it can’t certainly do damage to an engine.

One of the many selling points of D-1280X is its being harmless both to humans and the environment.

The government doesn’t have to launch a project to modify diesel engines in jeepneys, buses and trucks to reduce soot or “black carbon” emissions.

The project, expected to cost the government P26 billion, would not only be expensive but also cumbersome.

D-1280X is the answer to the problem of how to eliminate pollution from diesel-fed public utility vehicles.

A few drops of the product reduce vehicle emissions by as much as 96 percent.

Persons or groups interested in D-1280X may call Rey Lopez at 0906-467-0898 or Riza Lim at 0917-843-6043.

Rey Lopez, the company engineer, is available for demonstration of the product to big groups.
