Frequently Asked Questions


  1. Question: Does Manna Fuel Catalyst live up to your claims that it reduces toxic emissions by as much as 88 percent? See Answer

  2. Question: What about the claimed 12% to more than 20% fuel savings? See Answer

  3. Question: Manna, as you say, is 100% organic, what makes this more potent than synthetic fuel enhancers already out on the market? See Answer

  4. Question: Why even bother to optimize fuel, aren't today's fuels formulated in such a way that they are already of the highest possible quality? See Answer

  5. Question: Won't the harvest of the plants used in making the catalysts adversely affect the environment? See Answer

  6. Question: If Manna has been around for almost a decade, why have we not heard about it or even come out in the market? See Answer

  7. Question: Why buy the Manna catalyst when the consumer could simply use the money to buy more fuel instead? See Answer

  8. Question: What happens to your company, say, after 40 to 50 years when there may not be any more petroleum fuels to optimize? See Answer


  1. Answer: Manna has been tested for over eight years and verified by qualified, reputable, independent laboratories on its physical properties and composition as well as the actual performance tests conducted on it and supported with issued Certificates of Emissions Test. These tests form part of the documentation to establish our claims to government agencies for approval. Return to Questions

  2. Answer: Again, these are backed by the laboratory results, as well as the testimonials of our test users. Remember though, that fuel savings can vary from engine to engine depending on factors like type, displacement, running condition, etc. but even at the minimum 12%, it is a pretty significant amount especially in a large amount of fuel.

  3. Answer: There are many things in nature that modern science and technology has greatly overlooked, such as in the case of food and medicine. Now with fuels, it proves that organics have an unrealized and untapped potency that rivals or even exceeds that of synthetics. We are not saying that the synthetic solutions are impotent, but there is growing evidence that organic alternatives are just as effective and has other beneficial effects such as far lesser or no toxic by-products. With Manna, we have made considerable and very significant headway into this with regards to fuel optimization and reducing toxic gases. Return to Questions  

  4. Answer: As mentioned in the Organic Solution page, fuel made in the refinery is in excellent condition, but still requires further refinement aside from the fact that, in its transport and storage and while it sits in your car's tank, it gradually loses quality as a result of exposure to the air and contact with micro-organisms that can live in the fuel and catalyze degradation. Manna, on the other hand, catalyzes the fuel into an optimum state that is good for the engine, the consumer and the environment by reducing toxic emissions as well. Return to Questions

  5. Answer: No, in fact, the production of Manna  will cause the increase of trees planted. The corporation is working hand and hand with the DCV Program which is designed to revolutionize the planting of million trees through volunteerism, and also it is in communication with groups who will plant hectares of trees in part, as a countryside reforestation effort (that also serves to control floods and prevent soil erosion) and in part, to provide livelihood to the land owners by providing us with the raw material for making Manna. The harvesting of raw materials only involves part of trees and plants that are easily grown back, such as the leaves, so these remain very much intact and continue to grow and live for many years to come.

  6. Answer: Manna has been featured in several newspaper articles in the Philippines over the past few years but the main problem was that the original venture was very much a solo enterprise of the inventor who had to work for a living while trying to advance this for government approval and the lack of the very much-needed capital. It was only in late 2008 that Manna Hydro Bio-Energy Corporation was formed to do just that and has since acquired the said approvals and allocated the necessary funds for production and marketing.

  7. Answer: Primordial consideration in using Manna is not the savings from fuel but the benefits and protection it can give to mother nature and mankind. Imagine the usage of one (1) liter of gasoline producing 3.14 kg. of carbon dioxide (CO2). This is because each carbon atom from the fuel with a molecular weight of 12 bonds with two oxygen atoms in the air each with a molecular weight of 16 to produce CO2 with a total molecular weight of 44 (12+16+16). With billions of liters of fossil fuel being consumed globally in a year, this would translate to billions of tons of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere annually. If the carbon dioxide produced will be reduced tremendously by using Manna, such reduction can be converted as carbon credits that could be the subject of trading with countries producing big volumes of carbon dioxide. The incredible 1:1000 blend ratio (with the fuel catalysts) comes in as a secondary benefit. The capacity of a standard fuel tank in current automobiles is 30 liters. Add to this a 30 ml. bottle of Manna fuel catalyst which is enough to treat a full tank, as the potency of the catalyst is effective even at a 1:1000 mix ratio and at just the minimum fuel savings of 12% or the equivalent of an additional 3.6 liters, translates to both greater mileage and monetary savings for the consumer and would more than make up for the price of the catalyst. But this is only the minimum fuel savings which can go up to 20 percent and these savings will increase even more as fuel prices are expected to eventually go up. Since the recommended quantity of the catalyst per the corresponding quantity of fuel is enough to optimize the latter entirely, adding more than the recommended quantity of catalyst, although safe and harmless to the engine, will not be necessary and would only waste the extra catalyst which could have been used for another load of fuel. Therefore, consumers are advised to simply adhere to the prescribed blend ratios to maximize savings. Return to Questions  

  8. Answer: Oil is expected to run out within that time (unless new sources are found, which is still very likely) but it's likewise possible that cleaner, renewable organic-based "bio-fuels" will be more available by then. The good news is that we have tested Manna with bio-fuels and found very favorable results. However, we may also be working closely with bio-fuel providers by then to ensure that this will be of the highest quality possible. Also, we intend to conduct research and development into alternative fuels and energy based on organics and other clean technologies. Return to Questions
