Has anybody used the stuff? A couple of old car nuts was here really talking it up. I have heard of it for the last 100 years but never tried it. They say they put a quart in every oil change in there old cars.

As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

Most of the reviews on the net are negitive.

Oil supplements do nothing but increase the revenues for those who sell the stuff.

interesting to note however about the section that included Rislone had this quote: "As a general rule of thumb these products had their place and were at least moderately useful on older automobile and motorcycle engines of the Fifties and Sixties, but are basically unneeded on the more efficient engine designs of the past two decades." I am not proposing the use of Rislone, just wondering if in fact it may help (even moderately as mentioned) Stude engines.

As I recall when I had a '63 Daytona HT in the late '70's that failed our annual vehicle inspection due to "excessive smoke", I added Rislone Ring Seal to the engine oil to eliminate that smoke so I could pass the test. Effects lasted about 72 hours before it returned to it's normal smoky state. ;)
So, I guess you could say that it "helped". :D
