Has anyone used this stuff?
Does it do much?
Just wondering if anyone has experience with it.

I'm going to try it. Can't hurt other than the $14 out of wallet.
It's time to flush/change antifreeze anyway.

I would check out the Amsoil brand. You should be able to get a discount from Gabe.

Not practical for me. Either travel or shipping makes it not work for me.

I used to run it in my dragster, but I only ran water, no antifreeze. It seemed to help with the coolant temp but it also it was a lubricant for my water pump.

I've read claims online where they do a little better with plain water.
Royal Purple claims 22 degrees on the bottle.
I will be happy with 5-10 with antifreeze.

I'll find out this weekend after changing it.

yes, it works. but if you need it, you have other problems that probably should be fixed, first.

look into water wetter. essentially the same stuff, and available at any parts store.

I agree with the others it just a band aid find the problem. My son tried everything on his XJ 4.0 cap/thermostat/water pump until last a new radiator problem solved.
