The zinc additive might be interesting. The others, I don't think so. The price is a little too interesting, though. wink

Wow, $20 for the can of Zinc Additive?

I'm sure it's good stuff...but really expensive.

Need to see some VOA"s!!!!!!!

So they're selling ZDDP at $300,000/metric tonne? Nice business if you can get it!

It is all $2.00 off per can, right now.

The "Stabilizer" is THICK... like STP or Lucas oil "Stabilizer"

The Zinc additive is THIN and sounds like ATF or Hyd Fluid in a can

The motor treatment is "sea foam" or equivalent
