I would call their results and claims highly questionable.
No, one lubricant does not save more than 100% of power over another lubricant. You can't decrease friction below zero (which would already be an impossible 100% saving). Muc-off actually claim that friction losses with one of the competitors' lubricants were 124% to 195% higher than what they were with their product (which is not the same as a 195% saving with their product), but what this actually means is a 98% efficient chain vs. a 96% efficient chain, according to their published charts. The other two products were much closer to Muc-off's results.
As one of the posters in another forum wrote, this test is a hit piece on CeramicSpeed's drip lube. I don't know what they did when they supposedly followed manufacturers' usage instructions when applying the different products to chains for tests, but they most likely made a serious boo-boo when they applied that product for its numbers to be so far out of line from the other three products. And then they use garbage data like that to promote their product.
With ethics like that, you couldn't pay me to buy a product promoted with such, uhm, ludicrous marketing.
In my years of cycling and searching for the best kit, I've given up on "independent reviews" on cycling websites. Trying to find good tyres for example is a nightmare when putting your trust in cycling weekly, cycling news, bike rider et al.
But to put your trust in a company, saying their stuff is better than another company, based on their own in house testing, is like Joe says, ludicrous.
For a completely independent review based on nothing but my experience, muc off chain cleaner is nothing compared to "clean spray"!

Once again, people drafting behind me but not willing to take the lead from time to time, so that meant me breaking to let others overtake, facing their "anger". I don't mind drafting as long as people take turns.
Looks like a great route. Do you have a strava link or something? I might steal it one day this winter if I am not feeling fat tires.Did a longish ride around Kanagawa Post-Typhoon, down to Chigasaki, then over to Shonandaira, up the back of Yabitsu, down then back into Chigasaki and then headed off home. To say the weather was perfect was an understatement.
Overall, 140km with 1200m of elevation. Legs feel great today, as I followed ABC and took the slow ride home from Chigasaki along Sakaigawa.

- Got to the top of Shonandaira, no punctures this time and flew up it. Though I realised I could with a small front ring in the lower gear..
- Almost the top of Oku no dai and legs were feeling it now. 750 up and just stunning. Quick break as I had done 75km by now and got cramp in the right leg.
- Rewarded at the top of Oku no Dai with this view of Fuji.
- Decided to hike the last few metres up to the top of Oku no Dai and was funny. Completely different set of muscles being used and felt weird.
- Coming down Yabitsu and had to stop to get this picture. Smiles on my face the whole way down. Clocked almost 70kph but didn't feel right on the bike so stopped going past there.
