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.

No PEA, huh?

Proprietary? At < 4%, who cares?

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

You never can really know. Even most PEA is used for curing epoxy resins.

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.

So Polyolefin alkyl phenol alkyl amine is a type of PEA additive,

benzene increases octane.

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.🤔
