RevX and Syn oil opinion?

Doing oil change soon. I run 5w40 fully syn. I have 4 bottles of rev x. Should I do the recommended 2 bottle dose? Or just one bottle? For my first Rev X treatment. Since I run fully syn oil I was just thinking 1 bottle for the next 4 oil changes. Just looking for opinions.

I'm in the same boat as you. In doing my research, I'm led to believe that I'll be doing 2 bottles the first time and then 1 bottle thereafter. So with 4 bottles, that would be 3 oil changes.

Thanks for the reply . I wish I knew the exact makeup of RevX. That would help me with my decision. I bet that is a pretty heavily guarded secret since it is so expensive.

Yep, 2 bottles to start with and if you continue with the synthetic you shouldn't need to add the other 2.

Thanks for the replies. No I am not having any significant injector issues just some sluggishness and some noise in the cold. The syn has helped, but I thought I would help keep the sticks even happier if I did this too.

Yes give it a shot if you have had any problem before and the Syn oil helped

I run 2 bottles in every oil change. Cheap insurance, in my opinion.

That's not cheap at all. If I added two bottles at every oil change it'd be $175 oil change intervals for me!

Or else its a bottle of nothing but snake oil...priced high to make you think it's a special, secret compound worthy of such cost.
