    Just wondering if any of you guys have ever used that Z Max treatment they sell at advance and other auto parts stores. It comes in a few ways, one for the fuel tank, oil , and if I remember right there is one more but I cant say for sure :dunno:. Any way have you guys ever used it?

    I used it. cant really tell, if it makes you engine last longer... well it never broke down.

    I did run the small engine oil in my welder engine too. of our 5 service trucks, my welder ran the best and always started.
    I thought it was good stuff.

    yea, I used in my mild 306 in my 78 f-150. I could tell no differance in power, but honestly my gas mileage went up 2mpg. I was impressed with it and it never blew up. Although I have not put it the stang yet.

    well rxp is a gas treatment that gets all the nasty build up breaks it down and then the engine burns it off. The TX7 is a teflon based product that takes the place of 1 qt of oil and it basically coats your engine with "teflon" so build up doesnt stick, and lubercates all the moving parts.

    you can get both on line, or at a local parts store, the rxp is $8 and the tx7 is $21 and yes they work. i use them both on my car.
