    Archoil is awesome! My truck runs a ton better with the oil additive and my vw Golf TDI has seen a solid 6% gain in mpg with it.

    I have read hundreds of pages on the products. I'm not knocking the product at all. In my trade there are many different oil additives and found them all to have different qualities. So far there is nothing that stands out that has improved anything in my truck. Not to say it might change.

    Extreme heat helps in creating a varnish causing "injector stiction". It is also prone to erratic injector timing resulting in smoke, low power and poor overall performance.

    The 6.0 & 7.3 Powerstroke series has a high occurrence of spool valve stiction, erratic injector timing and premature injector failure. This is an issue in 6.0 & 7.3 engines regardless of the synthetic or regular diesel oil rating or how often the oil is changed.

    There are legitimate concerns regarding the hi-pressure oil side of the 6.0 & 7.3 HEUI fuel injection system. No other diesel engine uses its motor oil up to 4000 psi and forces it into a nearly microscopic orifice inside the fuel injector.

    The 6.0 & 7.3 engine oil needs help beyond what is currently offered in diesel rated motor oils. ARCHOIL AR9100 is the help it needs to restore and maintain 6.0 & 7.3 HEUI injector systems. As an added benefit AR9100 will reduce friction, prolonging engine life and run quieter.

    AR9100 Nanoborate Friction Modifier to lower fluid system coefficient of friction to 0.037, anti-corrosive and EP agent, maintains engine free of deposits and sludge, improves MPG, lowers operating temperatures, double oil drain cycle and increases HP.

    AR9100 contains various esters which dissolves carbon and varnish, a solution for POWERSTROKE injector stiction which is the accumulation of carbon and varnish deposits in the injector spool valve resulting in a performance drop, hard starts, drop in fuel economy, injector failure, etc.

    AR9100 restores the injectors to OEM performance.

    I'm not sure of your intent; the words are copied from Archoil's data. Is that a problem?

    Here are more words from a highly regarded specialist:

    Harry Johnson reports on how well Archoil works in a Ford 6.0 Powerstroke,

    Archoil has generated a tremendous amount of excitement for a multitude of positive reasons. This can be seen across many of the diesel truck forums, notably on TheDieselGarage.com 2003-2007 6.0L Powerstroke forum, where some of you may be familiar with me as "harry6.0". My truck is a 2003 Ford 6.0 Powerstroke that we've had since new. It is treated with both the above products from Archoil, (AR9100 in the motor oil) and (AR6200 in the fuel). This combination works incredibly well in the 6.0 Powerstroke. There are many other oil and fuel additive products on the market today, but none that I have ever tried has given the outstanding performance gains and results like Archoil. As many of you already know, the 6.0 Powerstroke is a very complex high compression diesel engine that uses the motor oil to hydraulically pressurize the fuel injectors and is known to be extremely punishing on any motor oil. The design features of this system make it susceptible to a condition called fuel injector stiction (the spool valve sticking inside the fuel injector), which can produce symptoms such as rough running combustion misfires (especially during cold engine operation), poor combustion in general and loss of overall performance.

    AR9100 friction modifier can help alleviate completely and or prevent fuel injector stiction problems, along with providing enhanced engine oil performance that the 6.0 Powerstroke really benefits from. AR9100 also makes the engine run very smooth and much quieter, this is especially noticeable when driving down the road or highway. It is recommended to be used regularly at the prescribed dosage ratio of approximately 1.12 ounces of AR9100 added per quart of motor oil, or roughly one 16oz bottle per engine oil change on a 6.0 Powerstroke. That is the exact ratio I use in our 6.0 Powerstroke.

    AR6200 combustion catalyst and burn modifier when added to the fuel tank creates a much more thorough and complete combustion event, which in turn provides enhanced low end torque and performance unlike any other fuel additive I have ever experienced. This product will work in any carbon based fuels and responds extremely well in the 6.0 Powerstroke. A more thorough burn rate also produces less waste and cleaner exhaust gasses, which is another added benefit for variable gate turbochargers and EGR systems like those found on the 6.0 Powerstroke and many other vehicles. It also provides a host of many other important benefits to the fuel system and combustion chamber as well (see list below of AR6200 product features). I recommend using 1.5 ounces the first tank, then 1 ounce in each of the second two tanks, then only a ounce per fill up thereafter.

    Both of these products are directly applicable to any other trucks, cars, tractors, power equipment, gas and diesel, that one may wish to apply an extra advantage towards in achieving peak lubrication and fuel performance. Additionally, they are also engineered for the purpose of generating longer equipment life and more efficient operation of some of the worlds hardest working engines and machinery. Archoil products are industrial grade, very effective, and simply outstanding in how well they perform in automotive and truck applications.

    Steve was referring about the fact that when you cut and paste a quote from another source, you need to mention it is a quote before hand.
