How many quarts does your crankcase hold?
The Rislone may need longer to work. Or it may need another 16.9oz application, a thousand miles prior to an oil change. I've used it with success in the past. Any engine that holds more than four quarts may need more than just 16.9oz. I know Walmart sells the Rislone in quart bottles and I've had better results using the quart bottle over the Concentrate.

It's probably too late to add the quart bottle. That will thin the oil too much. So try another 16.9 if need-be..... should your crankcase hold 5-6 quarts capacity, using a thicker oil like 15W40.

Just my opinion -- my experience working at home with Rislone and gas-driven engines in the past 45 years.


She's the only sister-in-law I have. But she's not my favorite.

Truck was/is immediately running about 5 degrees cooler. Nothing else was changed.

I don't think it was any reduction in viscosity, as it ran the same temp on SN 10w-30.

Any thoughts?


It is possible, 5 degrees F is quite minimal and it is possible to be impacted by additive added. I have similar observation with Lubegard added to the oil as well. It keeps engine oil temperature colder by 1-2 degree Celcius and the engine takes longer before reaching operating temperature.
