I've used the XPD, but the summer blend does not require as much per tank making it less money. It doesn't lubricate like the XPD but it's darn near the same. I like the 1oz treats 10 gallons, so for me it's only 3oz verse the XPD being 8oz roughly.

So I don't have to type it all again -> Fuel Additive Pricing???

From there, is it really more of a Bang-4-Buck thing than what's gonna be Best for your engine? really??? I mean, and I've never done this because I'm not sure I want to know,,,, have you ever added-up the yearly cost-of-fuel? I bet it's a scary number! Then what percentage of that does the Additive raise it (you know, $3.50 in a $150 fill-up?) Then, what's the cost difference between 2-stroke and a proper additive? How much could the savings/yr as a percentage of fuel cost/yr actually be? And you're losing So Much because you're Not getting improved anti-gel, cetane, or a demulsifier in an additive that's meant to be put in an Outboard Motor for the rings & needle brgs.

I understand the difference between running through WW and taking a $20 bill out of your pocket to grab some 2-stroke and shelling out over $100 all-at-once to purchase 3gal of Opti-Lube. I really do,,, but there are somethings that the easy & convenient just don't exist for and it's time to make the harder & inconvenient choice to do what's in the best interest of what it is you're after...

Ordered a gallon of the summer blend. It will put my mind at ease knowing I am doing all I can for the longevity of this truck.
