Notes on API Rating Effect

May 21, 2014

Some people seem to be concerned with upsetting the blend of the oil. Most of these are the same additives used in manufacturing the oil. Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator is balanced as a package by itself. In other words there is enough detergent to offset the dispersant. So adding it doesn’t change anything in a harmful way. Keep in mind that this product has been tested by a major engine manufacturer. The testing was done in all climates and altitudes. There is no API classification for additives. Finally, Hot Shot’s Secret Stiction Eliminator has no adverse effect in CI4 or CJ4 oils.
