Redline SI-1 had one of the highest % of PEA last time I checked. I buy it by the case from Amazon for around 4 bucks per bottle last time I bought it.

I use the maintenance dose and a bottle lasts quite awhile.

Hmmmm ?? I thought the MSDS on the Gumout Regane said it was just kerosene now.

Yeah, its a shame Techron does not give a number.

I've used Techron every oil change in my Hyundai, with all brands of gas, and it still runs like a top and gets the same gas mileage. Im loyal.

MSDS's are now mostly useless for determining if there is PEA or not. Many of them that contain PEA do not even mention it in the MSDS.

The Gumout Regane has about 40% PEA in it based on the last MSDS I saw before they started leaving ingredients out on their MSDS.

What is PEA? I know it's not one of the ingredients in peas and carrots.

Never mind. I found out.

polyether amine

polyether amine

Fuel system cleaners with a dose of PEA are said to have the best cleaning properties. If you are gonna use one, you should use these. Since Redline appears to be the only one left showing what dosage they use, Im gonna spend my money there.

Since PEA is not per se a hazardous substance, they don't have to declare it. Not that companies are protecting anything really secret (a competator would just send the product to a lab for GC/MS analysis), but they prefer not to disclose things.
