When do i add rev-x?

My truck is my user name. Shes got 228,000 miles and ive put on maybe 1,500 miles since my last oil/oil filter change (shell rotella conventional 15-40). I always run xdp power plus with every tank of fuel. What would adding rev-x to the oil do? Can i add it to my oil now? I dont know a whole lot about the stuff. But my motor has some time on it and im sure it can use a little help on internal cleaning, or whatever the hell it does

You can add now or on your next oil change. I would add now and change in 4000 miles.

Unless you are experiencing a problem there is no need to use Rev-X.

I use it every oil change. Even if you don't have an issue it helps prevent. But its kinda pricey if there isn't a need for it.

Increased Efficiency. Increased Horsepower and Torque. Greatly Improved Cold Start Operation. Smoother Operation of all Treated Components. Dramatic Reductions in Component Wear. Reduced Thermal Temperatures. Reduced Turbo Spool Times. Enhances FORD PowerStroke Injection Systems for Proper Operation

Best place to get the info is from their site REV-X and you can order it from there too.

You will see a difference when you add it with that many miles.

You would be doing your truck a big favor by switching to a 5w40 synthetic like the T6 too.
