    FP Plus for Diesel Fuel

    I received a response for LCD for those interested as follows. "The reason we now say FP 60 is the preferred product for diesel is that tests have shown that it adds no sulfur to ULSD. Fleets are very conscious of this and FP Plus does add micro amounts so therefore we need to be cautious of...

    FP Plus for Diesel Fuel

    Noticed on LCD's website that they no longer recommend FP Plus for diesel, they just recommend the original FP60. Any ideas why this would be the case? Onlu thing I could think of is that it emulsifies water and some manufacturers do not recommend that anymore because it gets water beyond the...

    Pennzoil yellow bottle...what else stands out

    PYB is a fine oil but does not meet DEXOS1 because the NOACK is too high. DEXOS1 requires 12% or less and PYB is greater than that. It is very hard to meet the 12% without some group 3/4/5 base oil in the mix

    Ford 6F35 automatic transmission

    I have a 2012 Ford Fusion with the 6F35 transmission. This transmission is known for flares (free spinning), hard shifts, and being very hard on trans fluid (shears it and turns it dark very quickly). There also seems to be a lot of failures of this trans in the 75k mileage range. The Ford fluid...

    Taking the Fusion to the dealership (again)

    I have two words for all those with the 6F35 transmissions to cure your woes - Redline D6. Now for the supporting data - I am also an owner of a 2012 Fusion, 2.5l, with the 6F35 transmission. I have had this car a little over a year now and have 21,000 miles on it now. I have not had ANY...

    New Royal Purple Website

    Here is some data to sink your teeth into - PQIA ran it's tests on RP 10W30 SL (old version). While this has been done many times, the very interesting thing I find is look at the Sulfur level - we have all throught that the Synerlec additive was Sulphur-based, maybe a sulpherized-ester, but...

    In case you have not seen it, Royal Purple has updated their website. It is much easier to navigate and they seem to now have added back in the Product Descriptions and MSDS for easier access for each product. Take a look

    Consensus on Lucas fuel treatment?

    My, what short memories we have here on BITOG. While not a fan of Lucas Oil in general, Lucas UCL is know the have PolyIsobutylene and PIB Succinimide in it, both dispersants. While not PEA, which is a likely the most effective dispersant for fuel additives, Lucas UCL does have cleaning...

    royal purple new formula?

    I am surprised too, but the new bottle does not state Synerlec is in it while the HPS bottle does. GO to their website and look at the new bottle picture for both and you can see where HPS reference Synerlec and the new Sn does not.

    PS Additive to recondition seals

    Lubegard makes a superb PS fluid additive. I have used it in 3 cars and it silences the full turn squeaking. Good stuff. Note they make both an additive and replacement PS fuid - if you do not want to flush your system, use the additive (which is what I used).
