Its not a Teflon additive, and I dont think theyve ever made it with Teflon.

Hmmm.. still not much info... that kinda makes me mad too, I was searching for topics on that, and got no results.

What is the stuff supposed to do in an engine? They claim reduced wear, and stuff like that, but it doesnt really explain in detail how its accomplishing that.

Bottomline: I don't waste any precious mullahs on oil and fuel additives that comes with no actual merit, no history and/or sold by some fly-by-nite company in the middle of da nite infomercials.

There are only 3 things I trust so far, and even so, I would only use them with care:

-LC60
-AutoRx
-PEA based EFI cleaners (Techron, Gumout Regaine, etc.)

Ahh, you could try it and see.

I came close to trying Zmax. Then I remembered this place.

I don't think you stumped BITOG, you just asked about a product that is not ARX so good look getting any answers or actual discussion.

As Tempest said, the X-1R Concentrate Engine Treatment's active ingredient is chlorinated paraffin. It also contains some esters, some diphenyl-amines, and Barium Sulfonate. The X-1R MSDSs are available at the link below (or you could go with postjeeprcr's comments if they seem more useful).

Anyone notice. X1R is back in business. They must have come up with an investor and a lot of money. It looks like chlorinated paraffins will not go away. It's amazing how marketing trumps knowledge long enough to make a lot of money.
