How to Mix e-Fuel

no clumping, no floaties!

e-Fuel is designed to be a rapid mix powder that will fully dissolve, but here’s some tips to help make sure it mixes quick and easy with no clumping!

1) fill bottle half way with water

If you put all of the powder in the bottle first and then add your water, the water can encapsulate some of the powder and create a ball like clump of powder that is hard to dissolve. Don’t do that! Put the water in the bottle first.

2) gradually add the powder

when you pour in the powder, do it rather gradually instead of one big dump it all in at once. When you add it all in one quick shot you can end up with an encapsulated clump. You don’t have to pour it in super slow, but if you’re getting a clump then try slowing down a bit.

3) shake it up!

Just having the bottle half full for the first shake allows for significant agitation which helps to speed up the mixing process.

4) top off and do a final shake

At this point you can optionally add ice as well (e-Fuel tastes better cold), and with a final shake you’re ready to go! There may be some very small visible particles at this point and they will quickly dissolve. Watch the video below:
