I know it's not much to go on but does anyone know anything about the two proprietary ingredients, like are they similar to PEA? This is from a fuel treatment MSDS. [Linked Image]

looks pretty light on additives.. maybe for a buck at the dollar store.. otherwise sticking with techron concentrate or gumout regane.

Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking. It's not something I use, as I'm pretty set on using either Techron or Gumout products..but I do think I'm going to venture out of my comfort zone and give Redline a try soon.

Interesting, thank you. The concentration in this formula seems low to my lay eye but i don't suspect it'd be in there, from a formulators cost to benefit standpoint, unless there [is] some benefit either individually or synergistically. My guess is it's a low concentration because the treat rate for the product is one bottle every fill up (20gl), so you don't (potentially) overdose the oil in the crankcase during a typical (3~5k mile) oil change interval.🤔
