RevX or Hot Shot's Secret??

Time for an oil change and I want to use an additive but I need some feedback on these two. Any body using them would be helpful. Oil additives as well as fuel additivesfrom them.

I'd go with Rev-X's oil additive and fuel additive. I use the oil additive and it works great!!

you have a great looking truck brother!!!

As for additive, unless its acting up, there is probably no benefit to an oil additive... IMO money is better spent on a top of the line true synthetic... I run Mobil 1 Delvac synthetic. Dropping Rev-X in runs your cost higher then the best oil out there. I dont think you can beat the R&D of Mobile one etc, and dont believe you can make there oil better with and additive, but thats just my opinion. Lots of guys on here post sucess with injector stiction issues with Rev-X. If your having no stiction issues I dont think it would be worth the cost.... good luck, nice looking truck...

for fuel I run Opti-lube, for lubricity, anti-gel and storing...
