Where did you find that out? There's a little vague info on the product out there. not much else. All I could find was it could be added to gas or oil for cleaning.

Yeah, near as I can tell it's a Seafoam/MMO type deal.

I picked up the Shell additives on sale cause the cans look sweet. Not sure I'll ever use them.

I grabbed some of the ZDDP additive, I'll find a use for it for sure. I grabbed the Fuel/Motor treatment I'll give it to my brother to run in one of the boats this season.

Shell also has X100 motor oils, 20W-50 and SAE 30 Conventional with 2000ppm of Zddp, basically meant for 50s, 60s and 70s British and Italian classics.

That's great..... but I have never seen those for sale in the USA.
