Leave those additives on the shelf and save your money.

The only thing any vehicle needs is regular and consistent maintenance. I have vehicles with 150k in my family and my own fleet to prove it

Frequent oil and filter changes, fluid changes (transmission, coolant, rear end, 4WD) and belts and hoses every four years.

That, a little TLC all the way around on the body, and good cleaning and waxing and any well made vehicle will last for a long time.

No fix or "performance" in a can. Never was, never will be.

Thanks for the info, how can they keep on advertising there product on TV if there in so much trouble?

Why do the networks allow it to happen?

Because money talks. Their commercials support the networks!

Any good tech will tell you there is no "fix in a can", and regular maintenance is key. Just like plumber's epoxy can't fix a broken pipe correctly or you shouldn't use Teflon tape on natural gas fittings .

There's a right way to do it! .

I was not planning on trying this stuff out, just wondering what the mech... though of additives.

You would think if there being sued over and over, where do they get the money to pay the networks?

I wish I had money to give away.

Only when the FTC gets involved like they did with Prolong and Slick 50 will they stop.

I do believe they had them back up their claims and when they couldn't, they've changed their tune accordingly.
