Will marvel mystery stuff kill the Hemi tick? I also notice with the more miles I rack up (685 as of now) The quieter it becomes and when it is warm, there is no longer a tick so to speak.

QS is junk.. even back on the 70's omg how long ago when I worked at a gas station you could tell from the filler cap that they were using QS.. I had good luck with Kendall racing oil before MOB 1.

I never heard of putting diesel in the gas either but I had heard of adding a pint to the oil just before you change the oil to clean out any sludge you may have. You do not DRIVEafter doing this and you only run it about 10 min at idle or until hot then drain and change your oil/filter.

I've had really good luck with Marvel Mystery Oil, SeaFoam (fun to use that one!), Royal Purple, Restore, and AMSOIL!

I too stay away from cheapo oils. Mobil 1 15,000 is about as cheap as I'll get. Just don't want to risk it, and I like the added protection of the fully-synthetic fluids.

As far as bad stuff? Well, there's lots. Most Octane adders don't actually add octane. (Some do.) Water-Wetter fluids don't work in modern engines with the thermostats set so high. Smoke-Away type fluids (more like honey) do more harm than good...

FYI, Rain-X is just good, ol' fashioned wax. Want a clean, rain-resistant windsheild? Use a cleaner wax and apply liberally to the windsheild just like you would your paint. Then, for a final extra special touch, apply some Pure Carnuba Wax. It'll keep your wipers lubricated (last longer) and keep you from having to use them as often. It also makes cleaning the glass easier in the future, since bugs and stuff get stuck to the wax, not the window... This process also removes water spots which some glass cleaners can't remove!

I'm big on resperatory protection in my industry and I believe it should carry over into other industries since everyone needs protection.

Great idea! should be a warning on the can "if you use this product insure to tell your service provider due to respiratory problems if handled"

Guess it depends how cold your talking, mine says good for -45C right on the bottle
