Z-Max

Has anyone out there had any experience with the Z-Max additive products. Are they all
that they claim to be, or are they just another gimmick?

Whenever I hear the word "additive" I instinctively substitute "rip-off", but hey I could be wrong.

"Just about" any additive is junk. Certain ones are ok, like some fuel injector cleaners, dry gas obviously has its uses, etc. Rislone is one that has been around longer than rope and has been used successfully for years. STP (I call it Glue) additive for oil will help get a few more miles out of a tired motor.

Usually it is the additives that have been around a long time (I mean longer than 10-20 years, LOL) that are the ones to consider, if any.

Thanks for the info. I really appreciate it. I did just purchase the K&N filter for my wife's rig and have noticed an improvement in power and will find out the results of the MPG this weekend, when I fill up again. Thanks to all who recommended it.

Cheers

Kev
