e-Fuel Customer Reviews

"I'm training for Ironman Florida and during the summer months here in Florida, long bike rides take me into some really hot and humid weather. I've been struggling for 6 weeks with cramping every time my ride hit 60-65 miles in length. I read about e-Fuel and after two rides of 80+ miles with no cramping, I'm a believer!" (...read more)

"After having difficulty in races where my gastric system would "lock up", I found that I simply couldn't handle gels and electrolyte pills frequently enough to support my needs. I knew that I was still in need of significant calories for my races and a friend introduced me to e-Fuel.

The calorie content and large amount of electrolytes were a perfect balance for my training and racing needs. In addition, because dissolves fast, it was easier for me to increase the concentration without worrying about trying to swallow a thick, clumpy drink.

At Ironman Wisconsin, I raced with 2 bottles of 4x concentrated e-Fuel (800+ calories per bottle) on the bike as my primary nutrition. Using eFuel helped me surpass my goal and register a 13 hour finish time with no cramping or stomach problems. "

"I just finished a multi-day event where I ran through the Benton MacKay Trail, start to finish, over 287 miles - fueling almost exclusively on e-Fuel. Each day consisted of an average of 35 miles across some of the toughest mountain trails in the Eastern US. e-Fuel carried me through 9 days with little other nutrition except dinner meals. I have always suffered from over/under hydration using other fuels - e-Fuel is the most complete and efficient fuel I have used. My mountain adventure was a great success largely due to e-Fuel."

"Started using e-Fuel to find a way to increase energy output for the fast and aerobically challenging sport of indoor soccer. To my amazement it worked. As a goalkeeper I kept my e-Fuel bottle in the goal and took sips throughout my matches. The result was an incredible and exponential increase in reaction time and leaping ability. At the end of games the opposition are always in awe of my ability to make difficult and incredible saves. I will continue to use e-Fuel because it tastes great, dissolves rapidly and provides an exponential increase in energy for the demanding physical activitiy of indoor soccer." (...read more)

The e-Fuel is something I had been looking for to help supplement my diet, after reading the Nutrient Timing book. My first day using it I wasn't gassed after the 5th inning and was able to pull off some great plays.

Thanks for giving us older athletes a little hope.

"I am an Ironman distance, age grouper triathlete trying to qualify for Kona. I have run numerous marathons including 4 Boston Marathons. I have competed in 14 1/2 ironman distances, and 3 full IM distances. Nutrition has always been a struggle... stomach issues, etc.... I can find all kinds of info on training, but few that are helpful as far as race day nutrition. I used e-fuel and e-gel on my last 70.3, had no stomach issues, and won my age group. That being said, I still had questions about nutrition when competing in a full IM. I e-mailed a couple of questions to Crank Sports and instead of sending a generic e-mail back, Mike called me and spent a good 30-45 minutes with me on the phone answering ALL of my questions. It was truly the most helpful information I have had since I began endurance sports years ago. I am going to give my husband all of my Scratch, Carbo Pro, Bonk Breakers, etc., and use nothing but e-fuel and gel. I cannot wait to tell all of my running friends about it tomorrow during our long run. I can't thank you enough, Mike. I don't have a coach and no one has ever spent that much time explaining what I should be doing as far as nutrition is concerned when competing. I am a Crank Sports customer for life.

"I have always had a problem with leg cramps in the 2nd to 3rd hour of an event depending on intensity. I've been using e-Gel and e-Fuel since January of this year. It is the only thing that I have changed in my training and racing protocol. I did Lavaman olympic distance in Hawaii and never cramped (2nd). I did Wildflower olympic distance in California and never cramped (4th). I've done both of these races a number of times in the past and cramped every time. I haven't cramped on any long runs or rides this year.

I know it is a short sample period. The combination and concentration of electrolytes in the Crank products seems to have solved my problem. I've never written a testimonial before, nor do I take much stock in them. None of this may work for you. It seems to work for me."

Not that this is bad, but considering that me a former bodybuilder could of kept up with the veteran racers, well let's just say pride is all I'll ever win in these races.

"My husband and I started using e-Gel seven years ago. We had tried everything available in local stores - nothing stood as well as e-Gel for us. We are long distance bicycle riders and now motorcycle riders. Look in our packs and you will find two things, packets of e-Gel and e-Fuel and then a baggy of "USED" products from each outing. We are always giving e-Gel to fellow riders to help when their product has let them down. The overall experience of fellow riders is less bonking and longer ride times.

Now for the non-human story. My little West Highland White Terrier, Brodie, attends our rides with us. On a recent return trip Brodie seemed tired and hot as we live in Arizona. Checked with the vet who indicated some type of electrolyte product was needed. With explanation of ingredients and permission from the vet, I put e-Gel in his water bowl, added water and ice. Much to my delight, Brodie lapped almost 4 ounces up and with in just a few minutes was feeling himself. We are sold on e-Gel even for our 4-legged friend."

"I have used your e-gel and e-fuel to enhance my running experience but this story is not about running. My family and I took a trip to Nepal and did the trek into Everest Base Camp. On our fourth day of treking we were at 15,000 feet and got caught in a blizzard. The temperature dropped quickly and the wind was howling. My 9 year old son started having problems. He was getting very cold, even with his storm gear on, and wanted to sleep. If we came close to a large rock he would lay his head down and try to sleep. Carrying him was not an option we wanted to use because he would have gotten colder. We tried to get him to eat some chocolate but he would not take in very much. I finally got him to eat an e-Gel and start drinking some e-Fuel. The recovery was amazing! Within 10 minutes he was talking up a storm and forging on. We were at our camp site an hour later and he was running around playing with some of the village children. I am not sure what we would have done without the e-Gel and e-Fuel. We take it everywhere with us now. " (...read more)

I came across the e-Fuel at the Surf City Marathon in California in 2013. I have been a avid user since. The taste is great - it's not a sticky sweet product. It mixes faster than any other nutrition product. With e-Fuel, I know exactly what I'm getting during multi-hour events. It's light on the stomach and consistently refreshing. I've tried many products over the years and typically get tired of a product after a while; three years and I'm still lovin' it!

I started drinking the e-Fuel early on, ate an energy bar starting at about 1.5 hours, had an e-Gel about an hour later, and made my second bottle of e-Fuel at around four hours." (...read more)

"CRANK has helped me get faster and recover quicker as I charge headlong into mountain running in Colorado Springs with my fellow Incline Club VO2Max overachievers. Training for the Pikes Peak Ascent, Vail Hill Climb, Imogene Pass run and other significant mountain runs demands exactly what e-Gel and e-Fuel deliver on and after the trail. 7,000 vertical feet...no problem when I CRANK it up!!! THANKS" (...read more)

"I am into canoe racing i have tried other gels (gu, powergel,etc.) and i liked their taste but they didn't sit well in my stomach. I was for the first time last year entering a 70 mi. race the general clinton in N.Y. I wanted to find a gel that did upset my stomach and thats when I found e.gel. I was leary on ordering a gel online but am I ever glad I did! Not only does it taste great but it sits well too." (...read more)

"I play golf 12 months a year. In Texas it consistently hovers around 100 degrees during the summer. Anything that I eat during a round at those temperatures gives me a blood sugar crash that makes me lose concentration and, consequently, results in higher scores. Since using e-Gels the problem has disappeared. My recommendation is ... be prepared to drink 12-16 oz of water after eating an e-Gel. This is a GOOD THING. Getting the elements that I need to perform well and having a product that promotes drinking water is the best I've found. I'm 62 years old and play two to three times a week year round. I've had a number of friends my age that have suffered from heat exhaustion and I don't want to be one of them. I've found the solution for me!" (...read more)

"Our usual road group is 6-8 riders and I'm the only female. The goal is always to stay with the pack for as many laps as possible before dropping off the back to do my own pace. (Actually, it's the goal of the front 2 guys to see how long it takes them to drop the rest of us, but all in good fun). Anyway, my very first experience was e-Gel was that I was able to hang on for a full lap longer. I know that I can't give e-Gel ALL of the credit (sorry), but there was enough of a difference in the way I felt to make the permanent switch from any other sports gel. Also, your article on hydration was a big help in understanding how this stuff works with what's already in my system.

I used the e-fuel the second half of my ride (as recommended) and I'll be making the switch there as well. It mixes easily with water, so I didn't get any surprise clumps (like, gag)...."

But this year, I tried your e-Fuel for the first time. And man what a difference. I just completed a 93 mile fund-raising ride for cancer research in record time - over 0.5 mph faster then my previous 4 tries. My legs were stronger, my recovery faster, and my overall feel far better then any other time I've completed the ride. Your products are by far the best on the market. Thanks again!" (...read more)

"I am a typical New Yorker. My work schedule rotates weekly and often within a week. I train when I can and not on a set schedule. I decided on a half Iron triathlon as a training goal. I had no coach then or now to help me. I started using e-fuel after my first 1/2 iron Triathlon. I did not have a good plan on how to properly fuel myself during an event. I had moderate success at the race and continued to use the product. I did not use e-gel at all for the first race. I did a lot of reading on products and tried to change my training and race fueling to improve my performance. My performance has improved and I believe these products have had a great deal to do with it. I have contacted Crank both by email and on the telephone. I have received honest and valuable answers. This is a great company. I just completed the Tupper Lake Tinman, a half iron event ...." (...read more)

"I had tried several energy gels and drinks on the market and found they did not live up to their advertised claims. A cyclist friend gave me a Gel Pack and I've been hooked every since! I use the Gel Packs before each cycling event, ice hockey game, and weight training session and the difference in my sustained energy level is nothing short of remarkable. Further, the e-Fuel keeps me sustained for the 2nd hour and beyond when cycling. I recommend CRANK products to all of my friends." (...read more)

"On July 8th I rode the Prouty 100 mile fundraiser for cancer at Dartmouth in NH with Debbie Chase and Carrie Nourjian. We finished in 6 hrs and 40 minutes and felt great the whole way thanks to e-Gel and e-Fuel. kept a consistent energy level during the ride by switching from e-gel one hour to fuel the next. Not bad for 3 women around 50 working fulltime trying to make time for rides in-bewteen busy schedules. There were 2000 riders that day who raised over a million dollars for cancer research;great effort everyone. The most important thing for me to mention about the use of the e-products is that I never have stomach problems or cramps anymore, can feel the energy instantly after ingesting either the liquid or the gel and always feel like I can keep going even when I am tired from a long ride. e-Fuel is great to drink while spinning inside during the winter also. Love the products and keep coming back for more." (...read more)

"I tried your products on the recommendo of a friend who is an aspiring pro mountain bike racer. I am a Master Expert class racer and have always had problems with proper intake of carbs during a race or long training ride due to an extremely high calorie utilization ratio. (Substrate Utilization) in medical speak. I tried Crank Sports e-Gel AND e-Fuel and with the ratios of complex to simple sugars and the larger sizes and overall convenience of use I am now a believer.I can't wait to see my results this next race season with e-Fuel and e-Gel on my side.

Both e-Gel and e-Fuel provide energy that doesn't feel like a rush like other products produce. I have also noticed that I don't crash after a hockey game or mountain bike ride like I did on other products. Plus, I never get a stomach ache like I would with other products. I am telling all of my fellow athletes about how e-fuel and e-gell are much better than any other products I have tried." (...read more)

"I was having horrible blood sugar and electrolyte crashes during my long events (half Ironman & half to full marathons). I decided to try to find a new gel and drink with more electrolytes. I found such great success with e-Fuel! No more bonking in the last few miles of my events! One of my friends, who owns a running shoe store, was having similar issues. I told her about e-Fuel and gave her a sample. She didn't try it for months, claiming a sensitive stomach. Finally, out of desperation, she tried it. She loved it so much, she now carries e-Fuel products in her store! Thanks for success x 2 in the hot, humid summers of Florida!" (...read more)

Then I heard about Crank Sports through a running friend. I decided to try both products offered by Crank Sports and now I'm not looking back. I have found, during the time I've been using them, that I'm able to run longer periods of time with a lot less burn out and more energy. I take one e-Gel every 45 mins. and drink at least 20 ounces of e-Fuel every hour and sometimes I can go to an hour and 1/2 What an incredible difference the both have made in my running performance and and energy levels on long runs. And I'm 67 years old. Thank you Crank Sports for two incredible products." (...read more)
