  • I own a 2016 Mercedes sprinter with 3.0L turbo diesel. Would your products be alright to run in this? I was thinking the diesel extreme and Stiction Eliminator? Thanks, Matt

    • Absolutely! Both Diesel Extreme and Stiction Eliminator will work great in your 3.0L! All of our fuel additives are in compliance with all current fuel tiers and requirements, the Everyday Diesel Treatment is also recommended if you’re racking up the miles on the Sprinter! Thanks!

  • I have 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 with the 6.7 Cummins Diesel with 75000 miles. I had trouble with the turbo being coked up. I took it to the dealer where they did a turbo cleaning seems to have helped. I wanted to see what products I should use to clean and maintain my fuel and exhaust system aswell as turbo. Thank you very much.

    • Steve, it would be a great idea to use our Stiction Eliminator in your oil every third oil change and Diesel Extreme every 6 months, they will ensure your fuel and oil systems remain clean. We’ve seen and heard many Cummins customers experience regen and DPF benefits using Diesel Extreme or Everyday Diesel Treatment. All of our products have a money back guarantee, no questions asked. Give em a shot!

  • I just bought a 2017 GMC Canyon with the 2.8 Duramax. The manual specifies additives that are not permissible in my engine. If I use your product, will it void my warranty? Your label isn’t very informative on the chemistry (proprietary info I’m sure) of your products.

    • Hello Dan. Our products will not void your manufacturer warranty. We’ve developed formulas for engine manufacturers in the past, our products are safe and effective for all vehicles within their intended purpose (for example, refrain from using diesel fuel additives in gasoline vehicles).

    • Kevin, for an initial dose of Stiction Eliminator in a 6.0L, we recommend two quarts. For maintenance doses, we recommend 1 quart every third oil change. You’ll need to adhere to the oil dipstick and be sure not to overfill your engine. You will most likely need to drain 1-2 quarts to add the Stiction Eliminator or wait until your next oil change.

  • I just ordered your fr3 to run in a coach I just bought with a 3126 cat engine with the higher ambient temps in Arizona it runs on the warm side when pulling hills the coolant system is good but I am going to change out coolant due to age and want to update to elc coolant .
    I am a 24 year field mechanic with our caterpillar dealer . and will give feed back on fr3 thank,s

  • Hi,
    I bought 2 quarts Friction Reducer and 2 quarts TSE for a friend 2 years ago,he gave it back because he didn’t use it. I drive a semi-truck (2016 Freighliner Cascadia -Evolution) how would i be able to apply those two products. i have 1 gal of Diesel Clean formula in the oil right now, 2 quarts of the older Friction Reducer won’t treat the 10 gal oil capacity on the next change,i would like to add the Friction Reducer to both rear axles (15 quarts front,10 quarts rear axle) and add the TSE to the “manual” transmissions, Would TSE support a heavy duty semi-truck tranny,(3gal capacity) without the TSE breaking down,because the bottle said “automatic trans” ,which i assume is for gasoline,and i have a “manual” semi-truck, the trans and axles are all 80w-90,so that low viscosity should make them compatible. Also would i be able to interchange those two products in the steer (front axle) hub,which is often over worked,and i plan on changing these out every 25-50k mi as preventive maintenance to get out any derbies/road dirt from outside that vibrates into the seals and causes leaks. Thank You Alex M.

    • Hello Alex, the old Friction Reducer would work great in the axles, but please do not use TSE in anything besides an automatic transmission (gas or diesel). The newest FR3 Friction Reducer is compatible with MTF fluid and the remaining treatment of the axles.

  • Does anybody smell the stiction eliminator coming out of their blow by. I have noticed a distinct diffrent smell since adding it.

  • Does hot shot extreme diesel work in the 7.3 indirect injection fuel system or is this product just for electronic motors?

  • I just purchased a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 ecodiesel. I’m new to diesel, so I’m trying to learn as much as I can, quickly, now that winter is ready to hit Indiana. My question is this, if I am using the (Diesel Winter Anti-Gel), is it necessary to still use the (Everyday Diesel Treatment)?

  • I’m servicing my manual trans and topping with Mag 1 full synthetic atf and Lucas synthetic oil stabilizer can I make d Hotshots secret friction reducer with it ? I live in Alaska and the temps are really low and fluid in riffs n trans really thickens at startup due to the cold ?

    • Hi Sean, we don’t recommend FR3 in manual applications, however, it is compatible with ATF and definitely differentials…thanks!

  • I have a 1990 90hp 2 stroke outboard. It has oil injection with gas. Which product should I use? I am dieing to know!

    • Yes absolutely! The Diesel Extreme and EDT especially for a 6.4L, to clean and maintain the fuel system and injectors. Depending on the mileage, it’s worth cleaning the oil system (rings, turbo bearings, etc.) with Stiction Eliminator, followed by FR3 Friction Reducer to keep clean, and restore engine wear.

      The benefits for the fuel additives are increased mileage and reduced smoke; for the oil additives, expect increased compression and fuel mileage gains…or your money back!

  • I got the diesel extreme for my 2016 Ford powerstroke not sure if I added it right or not but I didn’t see a difference in my fuel mileage or the way my truck ran I used 10 ounces in a 25 gallon fuel tank should I have used more for the first treatment ??

    • Hello, that is the correct treatment ratio per tank. In some cases, it is recommended to treat 2 back-to-back tanks for initial clean-out. Keep us posted!
