it is expensive, but in my opinion worth it. I had really bad stiction and 2 failing injectors. I tried it and it cleared all my issues. I have used it through 3 oil changes now. If you try it I do not believe you would have to continue to use it.

So I'm guessin its like when folks start using high mileage oil, you have to continue to use it because of the detergents in it?

I agree, I always check out Pigs truck. But anyway, I just ordered 3 bottles. I will do one when I change my oil next week. I will do it again when it starts getting cold out. I dont see any reason why sticking with it is a must. I know there are a lot of people that think once you start with something in oil you must stay. Truly, I dont believe in that at all. I have a Mustang that when I got it in the 90's, I always ran slick 50, then I went to sythetic, then I switch back and forth etc. The motor has well over 100, has seen a lot of NOS, slicks, and many RPMs. No issues.

Sorry for getting off there for a bit. But yes, I would assume you dont need to stick with it!

DEESLVRGN - THANK YOU for what you are doing for our country! Awesome man!

No you do not need to continue to use it as long as you use a quality full synthetic oil.

And by quality oil I do not mean Rotella

I just did a switch to Rotella T6 last week, not all diesel owners are wealthy so I guess we gotta use what we can, thats why I was wondering if I had to regularly use it or if I could use it every other maybe?
