REV-X Oil Additive

I am not the expert that some on here are. But, I bought a 04 F350 crew cab and about a month after I bought my truck it started running like crap. Hard starting, rough idle, poor acceleration, and when on the highway it felt like it had a stumble or a miss. So I asked a friend of mine who runs a fleet of 6.0's in some mini-coach bus's. He told me that they were having the same problems with their 6.0's until they started running a product called REV-X performance oil additive. After the first couple of hundred miles he could see a difference in the way that the vehicle's run. They start better, idle better, and seem to have more all around power. Best of all you can double your drain intervals. So he gave me some to try, and told me if it doesn't help my truck run better I didn't have to pay for it. I paid him 70 bucks for the product that he gave me.
So I'm about 9000 miles in on that oil change, and I have to let you guys know about this product. I now have none of the issue's that I was having with my truck. It starts almost instantly, idles smooth, and seems to have more power all the way around. Oh, and that stumble/miss on the highway is gone!

I will say this if you are having any of the issues that I was having with your truck/van. Try this product! If you don't you will be spending alot of money to fix these issues. I was quoted buy the dealer $5500-8500 to fix the issues. TRY IT! You will not be let down!

Yea it really does.

BUT in all fairness if it's not: What kind of oil were you running before and are you running with the additive?
Were you changing fuel filter, oil filter?

Looking at the MDS it doesn't sound very impressive. Nearly half of it is cheap off the shelf stuff. Adding mineral oil is about as old as the engine itself. I don't want to knock something to badly I haven't tried but reading its makeup I don't see anything revolutionary.

Highly refined mineral oil 35% wt/wt
Potassium 8.3% wt/wt
Nitrogen 0.22% wt/wt
Trade Secret 56.48% wt/wt

FIRST PROBLEM, THERE HOT ROD:

"I'm about 9000 miles in on that oil change"

What are you, stupid?

You're going to run conventional oil with some magic bull**** additive in it that's likely beating the injection system to DEATH for NINE THOUSAND MILES?!

You run it for NINE THOUSAND MILES between oil changes and wonder why it runs like ****.

Dee dee dee!
