(I'm just joking with you! But I have run side-by-side the tests on these, and I like seeing the winners get the credit they deserve.)
Thanks Ö I think . But just to be clear, I really donít know anything about all these snake-oil products. I donít even know if I need to add it to my diesel to over-winter here in the cold. So Iíd be happy to learn more about all this stuff.

SoÖ my cheap STP wonít cut it? Well, too late for this winter, but Iíll gladly look for better stuff next year.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
