Hello,

Has anyone used a oil additive called "ER"-Energy Release. I would like to have some information on anyone's experience with it.

I've used ER some time ago. It seemed to quiet engine a little bit after first treatment.

However, I must warn you!!!

It uses chlorinated paraffin as a base. It it widely used in automotive industry (as antiwear & extreme pressure additive) as well as metal working production. If you take a look at shell motor oil data sheet it says that it uses very little chlorine. It's a carcinogen and considered one of the most deadly chemicals after some time contact with water and high temperature affect. If you get it on you skin, which I did about a dozen of times, it probably will get digested though the skin. It gets deposited in the fats and there is no way to get it our of your body. I stooped using it after I found this info on another site (unfortunately non-existent right now. I wish I saved the original article).

The same thing goes to Militec 1.

Their fuel system cleaner seems to work very well.

Regards,
