Distributor: Peter or Fatima Saligumba of Ivan Shuttle Service.
For Poblacion, Barbaza, Antique, Philippines
Peter fitted the Surbo in his '92 Mitsubishi L300 diesel mini bus in 2006. This L300 runs 300km per day, carrying up to 14 people up the mountainous slopes in 3rd gear with aircon on. Before the Surbo, Peter had to use 1st or 2nd gear to do the same, and turn off the aircon too! The L300 now uses only 1100-1200 pesos of diesel a day, while previously it needed 1500 pesos a day. Before the Surbo, it was due for a piston ring change as recommended by Peter's mechanic, because there was lots of black smoke emitted. With the Surbo, the smoke problem was gone and it has gone 2 years without requiring the engine overhaul.
Dealers all over The Philippines are welcome to join this team, with training provided. Peter will provide assistance to shuttle bus fleets like his own, to help them save fuel.
Having been tested on mainly diesel vehicles like the Mitsubishi L300 in Western Visayas, the Surbo users there have been very happy as they now have more power in their engines, fuel savings, and also the ability to pass the yearly smoke tests with ease.
Other vehicles fitted with the Surbo include the 2011 turbodiesel 2.5 litre Ford Everest, which saved one half on fuel cost. On this vehicle, there is a green light that signals the start of turbocharging, but now with the Surbo, there is more power even without the green light. Another was the Isuzu Big Horn, a 3 litre, fifteen year old turbodiesel SUV, and the owner has ordered one more Surbo for his Honda City. Peter said that he drove these turbodiesel vehicles before the Surbo was installed and the turbocharger could not come on so easily, but only at a certain rpm and accelerator pressure. Overall, he said all customers have been happy so far and there have not been any complaints. Peter will be putting the Surbo on his motorcycle, and hopes to sell the Surbo to fellow motorcyclists.
