More on D-1280X and its benefits

By |


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.

    How can you say that your engine is cleaned?
    A DIESEL ENGINE that purrs like a kitten? who are you kidding? Please, leave it to the SCIENTIST. 

  • angtangamo

    Another scam. That product is just like goji berries and magnetic/volcanic rock that can supposedly cure everything. If it really works then why is it not popular all over the world? Where are the endorsements from the accredited groups? Reminds me of another product called firepower that can apparently clean your engine and increase gas mileage. The company that sells this “firepower” product also asks people to invest in their business with disastrous results for the investors.

    The former CEO of Firepower is wanted in 5 countries and is now reportedly hiding in the Philippines. His name is Tim Johnston and he is wanted for fraud, I wonder what his connection is to this writer.

  • curatolo

    The government should look into this productif its really reduces black smoke emission.Its about time that we look for , not exactly alternative fuel, but something that will help the environment. If it works, then good for everybody, if not, its worth trying. We should not forget our own personal intentions for the good of the environment. When Tulfo mentioned that it was shelved by the Coast Guard because of the intervention of a powerful person whom everybody knows, He must be interested in controlling the product if its really good. Everybody knows that this guy is swapang.

    Pwede pala mag-advertise mga columnist? Hindi na ito opinion column kundi whole page advertising.

    You’re saying that if it’s not harmful to humans then it’s not harmful to engines? Wow naman Mon, what kind of logic is that? Water is good for humans, but if you put water on your engine sigoradong sira engine mo!

    • randyaltarejos

      Nobody knows what’s in that substance. Why don’t you try it instead of talking nonsense? Have you been engaged in journalism work? If the board of editors will approve of it for publication, then it comes out in Mon’s column. That’s how it is in the editorial boardroom. As a former opinion editor, I knew how it goes.

    Mon, it’s good you divulged the information that one of the officials at the coast guard is blocking the order of Tamayo. Why don’t you tell this to Sec. Jun Andaya?

    agree on that “staking your reputation” thing..it is a widely known fact that you are one of the most corrupt journalist around.

    If Prieto means what she says in Tagaytay, she should start with you.

    you’re that typical guy who is fond of name dropping to make yourself vip.

    below, comes from one of my yahoogroups discussing Raisa Robles article on Media Corruption sometime lastweek.

    In the blog by Raissa Robles below, it gives an insider’s view of corruption in the media. The AFP as an organization has been contributing to this corruption. While in the service in the 80s, I had the opportunity to go with FVR as CPNP and ACSAFP to visit units in the front-line. It was SOP that a string of media reporters were to be a part of the visiting group. At night, we pampered the media with phase 1, phase 2 etc well-known only to the military especially the PNP. The PNP hierarchy pampered the likes of Ramon Tulfo with these foods, wine, and women and also included them in the payroll. Tulfo hated Ping Lacson because he stopped this practice. The consequences, these pampered reporters wrote something bad about the AFP/PNP and Ping.Read the article below on this issue.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Part 1: A painful topic – media corruptionNovember 30, 2012 · 219 CommentsExclusiveBy Raïssa Robles

    I’ve said it before that the best way to have your vehicle free of dust, smoke, etc. is to buy Hybrid cars. It uses 99percent electricity and probably one percent gas. You may even pump gas once in 3 months because that’s how effective Hybrid cars are. You save money, time and most of all, your car is always in a good condition. Here in the US, hybrid cars are a fad noe and you can charge your car with power in most gas stations and the max speed you can get is around 75 mph. It is expensive but the benefits are great. I know what I’m talking because I have one but unlike Tulfo, I am not influencing people but just stating the facts. Ask your friens who live in the States and they will tell you about it.

    Mr Tulfo, sorry to tell you na conflict of interest yang ginagawa mong pag indorso diyan sa produktong sabi mo ay makakabuti sa mga makinang diesel. Isa kang kolumnista at hindi mo dapat samahan ng negosyo ang mga isinusulat mo, laban man o ayon sa isyung binabanggit mo sa isang tao o sa gobyernong ito. Kaya hindi mo masisi kung maghinala ang mga taong nakabasa ng kolum mong ito na may komisyon ibibigay sa iyo ang mayari ng produktong ito.

    • tadasolo

      I disagree provided Mr Tulfo does not get any monetary gains in return nor provided free supply of the product. Otherwise it is unethical and PDI should be made aware of this

      • archerfan

        and your so naive to think that tulfo will waist his time and column if he wont get a big time bonus for this endorsement!

      • http://alasfilipinas.blogspot.com/ Pepe Alas

        And you’re so naive to think that Tulfo is merely wasting his time and column because all he ever wanted was a cleaner urban air for all of us. I’m not saying that Tulfo’s a saint, but if he has offered a better alternative for a much cleaner air than what we have now, why in the world counter that? Even if he is receiving payment for such “endorsement”, it doesn’t matter. What matters the most is that we would be able to mitigate air pollution. Furthermore, what if Tulfo is merely advocating for a cleaner air? After all, isn’t it the duty of every Filipino to keep our home (Filipinas) clean and green? Why leave Tulfo’s “environmentalism” out of the equation if that is all that he ever wanted in connection to this column? Think.

        What has Tulfo go to do with the government departments who are, I assume, actively seeking solutions to the issues of a cleaner air environment? Are they not aware of this remarkable product that can reduce emissions by 98%? And, I would like to see some proper independent, qualified and quantized research on this product- so far all we have is some guy and his old truck- this is not very scientific. As regards your “isn’t it the duty of every Filipino to keep our home (Filipinas) clean and green?” Well maybe so, but that ‘duty’ you speak of is not recognized, only by politico types, with their banners, the masses don’t even care, and I might add, the environmental issues we face are not a concern of any government I have ever lived under—-and never will be ….

        You are weak of distinction…Nobody would indorsed in any such kind of promotion thru his column w/o monetary rewards.  

      • http://alasfilipinas.blogspot.com/ Pepe Alas

        Weak of distinction? But still you have weak evidence that Tulfo is receiving a monetary reward. Do not generalize. Not all “endorsers” accept monetary rewards. I’ve been endorsing the Spanish language for more than a decade already, but not once have I received a single centavo from the Spanish government nor embassy for my efforts (and I am not expecting them to do so). Nice try, though…

        “I’ve been endorsing the Spanish language for more than a decade already,” It begs a question – why?

        Had you been courteous to me earlier, I would have given you an answer. So for now, the only answer you deserve is this: STFU! =)

    The air resources board of California, a government independent agency tested it with low sulfur diesel and regular diesel and found the efficiency improvements for low sulfur around 4% and reduction on Hydrocarbons at around 50% for low sulfur and around 20% for regular diesel. In California where there are literary millions of trucks on the road and stringent air quality requirements are using low sulfur diesel instead of additives like D1280DX. 

  • indiosbravos2002

    Read carefully. Tulfo mentioned he introduced the product to Admiral Willy Tamayo, navy commandant. Di syempre may kickback to si Tulfo pag bumili ang navy. Buti na lang di natuloy.

  • indiosbravos2002

    Tulfo– eendorse mo na rin yong GTO additive. Di mo na daw kailangan magchangoil forever sa sasakyan. Tinutunaw ang seditives at tumigas na dumi sa makina, pero di tinutunaw ang oil filter ( san ka naman nakakuha ng tunaw ang singtigas na bato na dumi sa makna pero di makatunaw ng papel). Safe din sa tao. Pwede daw prituhan ng pagkain, ipampunas sa balat para kuminis, sunblock at kung ano ano pa.
    Halatang hindi scam.

    Hmm.. I think Mon Tulfo got it right! We can indeed use D-1280X on our frigates, guided-missile destroyers and battle cruisers against Chinese navy during a protracted naval engagement. The only problem is.. we don’t have any.. hehehe

    Btw, if we talk about environment-friendly vehicles, the future is on electric-powered cars or hydrogen-powered cars and the likes.

    Additives may be fine, but the cost will certainly offset the advantages. Or some of this product is akin to a Ponzi scheme..

  • Yanong_OFW

    lalabas ang bagong poster ng D-1280X si Tulfo naka 2 piece habang nag endorse nito.. 

  • plunderer

    Huwag nyo problemahin si Tulfo, problemahin nyo kung may sasakyan kayo at subukan nyo ang product na sinabi nya kung gusto nyo o hindi…pilipino talaga masyadong magaling!!!

  • sacrebleau

    Two things: 1.) If the product is indeed what it is made out to be, then count me in as one of those who will give the product a go. 2.) A “journalist” shamelessly hawking a product leads me to believe that he does this for financial gain. What else does he sell? His integrity?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NIBPIJG6VDPRDRRUP4SRB72LZE aristotle

      …good point on number 2. but whether he gets something or not, it will be most beneficial to the environment and to the people. so it’s a win-win situation.

      • sacrebleau

         If the product is indeed beneficial, then good. I am just wondering about the “other” stuff that he sells on the pretext of fair journalism.

    • buttones

      Well the product has to be proven so, the claim that it can reduce emissions by 98%, for every diesel vehicle on the planet seems remarkable… and has escaped most of the world as well. I’d like to see some proper research and results before I lay my money down, and there is non, non has been mentioned, it all boiling down to a journalist and his old Toyota- not very scientific in my opinion- a two year study from Harvard or MIT , yes, I’ll give that some credence— but opinions from an obscure journalist with a stick, or bat or whatever he carries is not quite enough…

      • sacrebleau

         That is indeed strange. A product that is so effective and relevant but lacking in credible empirical data.

    Best thing to do is not really to test this on one guy’s ten year old Toyota, but get Manila to test it in a controlled environment. Issue this product to a five hundred jeepney drivers for free over three months, and do a monthly check on their emissions and mileage. And I suspect the author of this article keeps his vehicle well maintained, I’ve got a 12 year old Toyota diesel truck, it always passes the ‘test’. I don’t think jeepney’s run on well maintained Toyota engines, in the same way there is not one ‘Zipper’ fishing boat that does either. If it works, then eradicate the tax on this product, yes the rides will be more expensive, maybe, but the hospital bill will be less. On the author trying to make a few peso as a poster boy, nothing wrong with that, journalism pays a pittance anyway….

  • buttones

    “A few drops of the product reduce vehicle emissions by as much as 96 percent.” Really? so where do they go? What are they reduced to, working on the premise that nothing is created nor destroyed, and given the fact that the world is harping on about vehicle emissions, why is this product not front page news in every newspaper on the planet, and why is this company who produce this stuff not a billion dollar company? I mean it’s like finding a cure for baldness, the guy that does that will make Bill Gates look like pauper!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SYG36KOOLRY47VA3ICPJJ5CQTQ ADD

    People from D-1280X should start giving free samples for our jeepneys. It’s the only way to prove if it’s working or not, baka kasi nalagyan na nman itong si tulfing.

    Rey Lopez, the company engineer, is available for demonstration of the product to big groups. [Little ones need not apply] – I would like to know what the qualifications are of this so called engineer, is he a chemical engineer, automotive or what? Who is this guy? Academia has never even heard of him what paper on this subject has he published? So tell me- I am all ears. Go on I dare you — tell me…
