Definitely save more money before taking this jump, try to save at least 3-6 months so you can weather this career change. I wouldn`t risk taking out a heloc, using credit cards or retirement savings.
my 2 cents
Website looks good. I did spot a few misspelled words on the banner - I believe `ware` should be `wear` on the product page and faq page header. You provide everything a user could expect.
The major problem is getting people to believe fuel additives actually reduce emissions, provide savings, etc. After many years of promises from many companies selling the same thing these products just don`t work, I think the $$ savings and the numbers just don`t add up.
i would be careful - sounds almost like a scam or at least a way to part nice people from their money.after a brief search on google found this from people who attended a conference. http://www.foreclosures.com/www/pages/gurus_to_avoid.asp?gID =57

Coffee shops are notorious for low profit margins and it is a tough marketuplace. I`d suggest borrowing the money from friends and/or saving every penny you can. Another idea is to ask the bank for money over a 3 month period kinda like a construction loan.good luck
