Has anyone used Hotshot Oil Stitcon Reduction in their cummins? If so would like to know what the results were. Any mechanics out there have any suggestions. Thanks

1 quart cheap auto tranny fluid is what I've been using in several trucks for years.

Years ago lots of people used transmission fluid in the fuel as an additive. Some even added to the crankcase. HD tranny fluid ate the bearings out.

Problem was, it does not burn in the combustion chamber and leaves sludge
deposits around the valves. Not good.

I don't know what the Stitcon is or what its supposed to do.
