thought about gettin some zmax today but so much for that idea. Guess Ill just stick with what I have always done. Just go get about a gallon of 110 out the garage and run it. Its easier to do that when theres 2 55 gal drum sittin there. Besides drag season dont start til May for me.

Very interesting thread. I didn't know the fuel additives could be bad for the engine.

I wasn't to surprised to see that people are not big fans of QS or Pennzoil. The one thing I heard that I found humorous about it is that the only people who like it have been lucky.

As for the tire sealant I knew it wasn't really good for tires. I didn't know that it could cause respiratory issues. The only thing I knew is that it would make it hard to repair flats if you as it wouldn't allow the patch to stick properly.

Never used an additive..I do believe that as long as one keeps up with scheduled preventive maintaince they should be go to go over the long run....I owned 2 RTs in the past and put over 100,000 miles of both and never a problem with the proper PM

This is absolutely not true anymore. While I love rainX on glass, it has a warning right on the bottle not to use it on plastic. A friend of mine used to be a parts manager for a harley dealership and was telling me horror stories about guys that put it on their wind screens or shields on their helmets ... and then got to guy new ones due to all the etching.
