No doubt J. I was just giving BT some more products to ck out. I never used anything until about 7 yrs ago and started putting Lucas fuel treatment in my 01 stang. First used Sea Foam a month or so ago in fuel and then in engine (which I did half way). They use to say not change brands of oil, but my late uncle, on any used car he bought to resell and his own new vehicles, would always use Havoline. He always used American (Amoco now BP) gold. He swore by Ams grease when hardly anyone knew about that product. I have told many, just keep your oil changed regular because it is the life of an engine.

The guy that owned the 1979 Scout II my uncle has ran Havoline 10w 30 in it from the time it rolled off the showroom til we got it back in 2011, I happened to be checking everything out at the house after we towed it, popped the oil cap to pour the Castrol in it and the damned rocker arms were shiny new, scout only has 121k on it, and uncle put castrol in it when the guy we got it from ran Havoline, I said there's a reason the engine is so damned clean, why change brands? He swears by Castrol cause the jaguar dealership when he had his 69 fastback jag told him that's what they use, well they use it cause it's a British Petroleum product, and jaguars are british.....

Last year I found an old Texaco Havoline fishing knife that's never even been sharpened by hand, so I put it up.

Did some looking around on the XADO FriktionTek Product. XADO is a company out of Ukraine. Their claims are to create a ceramic coating to the metal lasting 65k miles with one treatment using Cermet technology. This is actually the good news. Ceramics in the auto industry have been few, but when in use, the benefit has always been heat and friction reduction. I know some auto manufactures have used ceramic pistion rings for longevity purposes. Also when you go to the part slingers for brakes there is usually an option for ceramic. I watched a couple of the testimonial videos and they didn't seem to be rehearsed but they were all initial reaction. They haven't gone back to these people after a year or say 10k miles to check in on things. What I would be interested in is solid numbers. Before and after cylinder pressures, complete testing of an engine that went 65k on the product starting with leak down testing etc.I noticed on their website, they used an independent lab by the name of TUV for testing. Since it's labeled for use in automobiles, dontcha think they would have had it tested by the SAE? The price is also something to consider. $50-60 is a lot of dough for this type of product. Despite what I've said, I may try it in the Neon. It has 135k on the engine that was put In about 6 years ago. If I do I will post my findings here. Or if Frankster buys it, I would be really interested his thoughts. So who's gonna be the guinea pig?

I feel the same way
the only thing I have ever added to the oil and this was many years ago, on vehicles with over 100,000 mi
was Slick 50 & Restore, never knew if they did anything though

Dad loved Marvel Mystery Oil, in fact I still have a metal gallon can, it's been sitting around since the '60s; when I got an engine thats going to sit up awhile I squirt some down the spark plug holes and turn it over, got a Harley engine thats been sitting since 1992 and it still goes up & down I squirt some in it about once a year

I do add fuel injector cleaner to the gas, I buy it by the case and use what ever is on sale

I reckon it works as some vehicles have over 100,000 mi with no fuel or injector problems, I add this stuff to the gas at every oil change

brands I remember using were Chevron & STP and lately I have been buying Gumout from Costco, about a $1.65 a bottle for 12

Another little report for the Sea Foam. I filled truck up fri evening and drove about 6 miles back to house. Normally, it will use about a 1/4 tank per day. When I got to work today, it is just shy of 3/4's. I'd say the treatment i did worked well. I cannot wait to do it right by J's post. Yesterday, I was running late and I drove it pretty hard from stops and pushed speedlimit. Well done sea foam. I'm going home(TN) on fri to see mom. I will fill up and try to remember to log milege to get an accurate check. It would appear that I'm getting an extra 30 mile trip out of three days driving. Of course I have to make the return trip home, but we will see. Left work and I guess went about 20 miles out of the way to John Deere place and then home. Fuel gauge is still about two hands above half and that was running air and all city driving. Looking forward to trip to see what it gets.
