With the sensitivity of todays emissions systems, I doubt you could get away with mixing fuels.

I don't get how it is or was thought to be a good idea to add some diesel (which contains water) to a gasoline engine? And if anyone does it to a $30-45K truck, then I'm sorry but they're a little bit of a stup*($ A#$. Pardon my language.

I can't say I've ever heard anything bad about Lucas.

Sorry to bring the Rain-X discussion back up, but I love the stuff. Lately i've been lazy and buy the Rain-X windsheild washer fluid. It applies a little when you use your washer fluid. It doesn't work as well as applying it yourself, but the water still beads off.

One of my all time favorite additives (on older engines) is Marvel Mystery Oil. On just about any vehicle that I'm changing the oil if it's got high miles I'll drop a qt of this in.

It's pretty good stuff, not sure how or why it works (honestly don't care either LOL) but it'll reduce any pinging and smoking issues. It could be my imagination, but it seems to run a lil smoother too. (My boss in high school at the garage swore by this stuff)

Watch the Rain-X washer fluid. The rainx part will solidify in the tubing after a while, especially if you live in a cold climate. Had it happen on my Exploder. Spent an hour cleaning the sludge out of the sprayers, tubing, and reservoir. Replaced the fluid with regular blue stuff, then had residual sludge clog it up again. BTW, the sludge that came out was just a thickened version of the fluid.

The reason we don't know why it works is it's still a "mystery" lol, but I have used it in my Jeep, didn't use the full quart, but I agree, smoothed it out a good bit and quieted down my lifter noise, and I'll swear by it, too, in older engines. However, like some of the products mentioned in this thread, it is a temporary fix, not intended for long term use.

Rain-X is made for Plexaglass is why it works so well on windscreens and helmets shields. I used it all the time on my G-wing and helmet way back when. Unless they changed the formula (yeah-right) what they sell for glass just screws it up and causes water spotting, and dirt to stick.
