Optilube xpd

Ok guys I figured this is the best addative to use just not sure which one to use. General,summer or winter adative. They all look the same except maybe double them for winter.

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.
