SKU: FR3 Category:

The Science

Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 is a lubricity enhancing oil additive that increases the lubricating & wear reduction properties of the host oil. The product contains patented synthetic lubricants that have unique lubricating properties even compared to PAO or mPAO synthetics of the same viscosity. The anti-wear component of the formula is a patented carbon nano particle that fills in microscopic irregularities on the machined surface to provide a smoother surface for the lubricating film to form. The synergy of these components extends the base oil performance in shear stability, oxidation stability, film strength & especially friction reduction.

Benefits

Heat and friction silently steal power from your engine. The scientists from LSI Institute have uncovered a powerful lubricity agent…Hot Shot’s Secret FR3. One treatment of FR3 to your oil and your diesel will run cooler and have increased towing power. Negatively charged synthetic ester tenaciously attaches to all internal parts completely lubricating your engine.

Treatment Ratio

  • 5 quart (car): 8 ounces FR3
  • 15 quarts (truck): 23 ounces FR3
  • 45 quarts (semi): 64 ounces FR3

Add To:

  • Engine oil
  • Power steering
  • Hydraulic system
  • Differentials

Recommended Frequency:
Use one treatment of FR3 every oil change.

Use in All Engines:
Semi-trucks, pick-up trucks, farm equipment & autos. Effective in all engines including: Ford Powerstroke, Dodge Cummins, GM Duramax, Saab, Volkswagen, Audi. You can use FR3 to treat any oil-lubricated system except air conditioning and aircraft. Even though FR3 is an industrial product, you’ll find that small two cycle engines love it; just add FR3 to your oil before mixing it with the fuel. Your automobile, light truck or other personal vehicles will benefit from FR3 in the engine, power steering unit, and differential.

    Other uses of FR3

    Dan Martek

    Yousay this can be used in power steering systems, but Dodge uses tranny fluid in the power steering on my 06 Ram as well as in the transfer case. Can I use this to further protect the power steering and transfer case?

    2002 7.3 powerstroke

    Patrick Flippin Jr.

    I have question regarding the use of both the stiction eliminator and the FR3. Can both be used at the same time of oil changes or do they need to be alternating? I currently own a ‘02 7.3 powerstroke with a little over 240,000 miles on it.

      Hi Patrick, We do NOT recommend mixing oil additives including our own. Use a quart of Stiction Eliminator every 3-4 oil changes with FR3 in between. Please check out this article which explains in detail, thanks! Stiction Eliminator vs FR3, what’s the difference?

      It is definitely worth a try to use the Stiction Eliminator oil additive with a fresh oil change, and run it hard for a few hundred miles. Keep us posted Janet!

    Question??

    Ron A

    I have a 2017 Mustang GT that has been modified at both ends for increased performance and sucks and blows air with a lot less resistance and torque gains have been significant. My question is what will the FR3 additive do for my motor and what should I expect, see and feel from its use?

      The car is 15 months and just over 10k miles and uses 8 quarts of oil. the car is being developed for as much power as i can get short of forced air, improved suspension and for show. I take it to at least one show or car meet a week and at least two Ford shows a month.

      Hi Ron, nice Mustang! Most real-world users either notice the horsepower gains or MPG. In your case it is likely you’d experience up to 5% horsepower increase. How many miles, by the way?

    I was doubtful at first but decided to give it a try on my next oil change. The first thing I noticed was oil temp being down 2-3 degrees. The next thing I notice was an increase of 1.6 mpg. I’m a true believer!

    Question

    Ryan

    I have a question regarding the FR3 product. I have a common rail Cummins with higher rate valve springs and higher lift can installed. I am required to run a zinc additive per the camshaft manufacturer. Is the FR3 good substitute for zinc additive?

    • Levi

      Levi

      The FR3 is NOT a recommended zinc substitute. However, in our testing with high zinc racing oil, it does help supplement and gives up to a 5% horsepower increase!

    Used the FR3 in both My Kid’s Jeep wranglers, A 1998 & a 2000, Both have the 4.0 motor, As with all 4.0 motors You get the lifter noise that is annoying. After putting in the FR3 in after 2 oil changes both jeep’s have no more lifter noise. And they both run a lot smoother then when We first got them. I put it in the Oil, P/S fluid and the Differentials.

      Hi Frank! For new or low mileage vehicles we actually recommend waiting until 40-50k miles before a need for Stiction Eliminator. Using FR3 around 15k miles, or at least after the break-in period, will help extend the engine life and keep things clean and lubricated…thanks!

    Started using Hot Shot Proucts for about the last 12,000 miles. So far it seems to be doing a great job. The one thing that I have noticed the most is the engine temp. I pulled a 3 Horse Trl. It was loaded to the max. The temp would get up to 209-212 before using hotshot product. But on that long haul with a heavy loaded trl it never got over 200 degrees. So I would have to give it a 5 star. I’m now using All hotshot products.

    I run FR3 in everything and have noticed the vibration on the mower and one of my old cars has decreased a little. It does seem to help according to the oil analysis I send in to a separate company. I run diesels for 2 of my vehicles so I get oil samples run to make sure I don’t have diesel fuel in the oil (bad injectors) and was kinda shocked when they told me the metal content had dropped, which is good (less engine wear). I’ll continue running this product.

    How does this product work with bearing coatings ? Like a Mos2 coating offered by microblue or a WS2 coating.

    Since it was was my first use, I haven’t had enough time to assess the product. I fully expect it to work as advertised, though I suspect it will be a while since I already use full synthetic oil and get better than EPA estimates for fuel economy for my 2008 Avenger with 2.7 liter V6.

    Question

    Gelasio

    I just bought a 3L V6 RAM eco-diesel…. which should I use first on the oil change… the FR3 or the Stiction?

      Hi Gelasio, that is a good mileage-marker to start with the Stiction Eliminator, with a maintenance dosage every 3-4 oil changes. FR3 is added during the in-between oil changes, thanks!

    added fr3 in my 98 expedition with 300k miles. it had had a rough idle even after a tune up and saw this on the shelf at my local rural king. I saw a video of a different nano product added to a running freightliner so I tried it to the old ford. within 8 seconds the idle had calmed and you could tell how much smoother the ride was and the throttle response seemed to pick-up slightly as well. very impressed

      No it will not, Mike good question. It filters down to 2 microns to remove any wear metals in the oil. 2 microns equals 2,000 nanoparticles of FR3, for reference…hope that helps!

    I put in archoil 9100 at my first oil change on my 2017 silverado 6.6 duramax l5p and it seemed to make a mileage difference of 1-2 ish. I used rotella t6 with it. With my second oil change I put in fr3 with my t6 rotella. I have put a few hundred miles on it since the fr3 and it seems to be doing just as well if not just a bit better than archoil and its sure easier to find. I can walk into my local atwoods home and ranch store and pick it up right off the shelf. I do believe it is also less expensive. When you pay about 50 bucks for oil and another 20 bucks for a good wix filter archoil is another 44 ish bucks and to me is no better. So buy fr3 because it works well and wont break the bank on top of all the other materials you need to pull off an oil change. Thank you!!

    My car’s engine (100K miles) runs a little smoother and quieter. Since I used both products together, I can’t say one is doing better than the other. Also, my driving is different each day so I can’t give a definitive % increase but as a guess, I’d estimate a 5% gas mileage improvement. I believe the products work so I award 4 stars and once they improve this to the next level, then I’ll give that a 5 star – there’s always room for improvement.

    OK, so I bought a 2000 isuzu with about 156,000 miles on it. It’s always ran hot, changed the Clutch fan a couple months ago, but still ran hot (about 3/4 on the gauge). Put the fR3 in the other day and the gauge hasn’t gone past 1/2. Is this a fluke or did this actually work…….I’m usually very skeptical about “snake” oils, but this one might actually work!

I have loved all the products I have purchased. Just as advertised, I have noticed cooler engine temps as well as noise reduction at idle. Will continue to use at oil changes until my 1qt maintenance cycle of Stiction Eliminator. I would recommend all of your products.

      Hi Derrick it replaces oil ideally with a fresh oil change. However if you are low and recently changed oil, it is ok to add without overfilling.

    I use full synthetic oil on my duramax. when using the stiction eliminator, do you leave it in the crank case until you need to change the oil again or do you your need run it for a specific milage then change the oil?

    I’m thinking of putting this in the transmission of a Massey Ferguson 451 farm tractor which operates the hydraulic system, brake system, and transmission system, it holds around 20 gallon of hydraulic fluid-to be verified before adding fr3- so I’m figuring a gallon of this. Will it work?

      so you are NOT recommending this product yet for motorcycles, since they all use wet clutches. another product says their friction additive works fine in wet clutches because it bonds to the metal clutch plates, but not the cork. what is your opinion of this claim?

      We have not officially recommended, correct, but may endorse using the FR3 in wet clutches in the future after thorough benefit testing. As far as the claims on another product, it makes sense that the additive only bonds to the metal surface…stay tuned!

      It looks like this tractor may have wet brakes and wet clutches. If it does, the TSE (Transmission Stiction Eliminator) would be a better choice since we have not fully approved the FR3 in a wet clutch application (it worked well in the 2016 Duramax that we tested, but we need more data to confirm the results).

      If there are no wet clutches it would work great!

    I have a 1996 Buick Roadmaster. The engine takes 5 quarts of oil. I just purchased two bottles of the 8oz size FR3. When doing an oil change, how do I use this product? Do I still use 5 quarts of oil, and an entire bottle of this 8oz FR3? Or do I add 4 quarts of oil and one bottle of FR3? I want to make sure I am not killing my engine by adding too much to the crankcase or too little oil at the same time.

      Hi Wes! You are correct in not overfilling or under-filling the crankcase, and are safe within the recommended indicator range on the dipstick.

      In the Roadmaster, please use roughly 4.75 quarts and the 8 oz bottle of FR3.

Have use Hot Shot’s Secret since I purchased this truck, and all of their products do what they say and a very high quality. Even called and spoke to them about product usage, and they were extremely helpful and knew what they were talking about. Again, great products, great people, and as always…GREAT RESULTS!!

    FR3 oil additive has very noticeably improved engine performance and mileage in every gasoline powered vehicle I have used it in. Improved fuel economy, increased acceleration, and a much smoother running engine is what I have experienced using it. I have used several other products offered by Lubrication specialties and every one has performed exactly as claimed. These guys really know their products and are quick to answer any questions I have had. Customer Service has been a pleasure to speak with, their shipping is affordable (and often free!) and fast, and has always arrived well packed and in good condition. I am a very satisfied customer as well as a customer for life. Thanks LSI !!

    I’ve used FR3 in my 1966 classic Volkswagen. These engines are air cooled, and heat is a killer on these engines. It maybe just wishful thinking but I fell that it’s quieter using FR3. Now I wonder what benefit would Stiction Eliminator do for the gasoline engine.

    I have been testing FR3 in my 2008 Toyota Prius. I am consistently seeing 7-8% improvement in mileage on a car with 248,000 miles on it. Amazing stuff! I really like FR3. It actually DOES what is claimed. This is a quality product, NOT “snake oil” junk. My engine is quieter, smoother and getting better mileage. Since this product really works for me, I have recently added it to my wife’s 2006 Toyota Prius, my 2003 Ford Excursion 6.0L diesel, my push mower, my 4-cycle weed-eater, and my commercial 60″ 27-hp zero-turn mower. As soon as I receive more product, I plan to use it on our 2006 Pontiac Montana, the tiller and our 10k watt generator. Great stuff!!!! I run Amsoil 100% synthetic in everything I own, if anyone was curious. Now, FR3 is also standard issue for me with every oil change. Keep up the good work LSI !!!!
