Do you have a picture or link to the pump dispenser you have?

Chevron has been a leader in fuel quality for decades. I keep waiting for some MBA to decide it's time to cash in on their reputation by going cheap on quality but so far it hasn't happened.

However, the Hot Shot's Secret Extreme Diesel is a fuel additive. I tried it in my LLY, injectors were getting intermittently knocky so I figured I would try it before replacing them. So far, it has quieted them down so maybe i can hold off replacing the injectors, at least for now. Truck has noticebly more power, runs cooler, quieter, better MPG after two tanks. Mfgr only recommends using it once every 6 months.....
I recently changed my oil using synthetic t6 15w-40 and tried hot shot secret stiction eliminator. I used it to clean and lubricate anything the oil touches. I didn't really think it would do anything but the truck drivability has seemed to improve. The engine is quiter and smoother at idle now. It's hard to explain but it made a noticable difference that I like and I will continue to use it at the recommended schedule. At the same time I used diesel extreme.

I have been a long time user of opti-lube products but now have switched to using hot shot secret. So far I have used diesel winter anti gel, diesel extreme, and stiction eliminator. I just ordered FR3 for the next oil change, more diesel extreme for future use and I got a free 32 oz. of everyday diesel treatment.

I like how everything you order from there website has free shipping and you can get discount codes.
