Archoil 6200 fuel treatment

Recommended Posts

If you have been considering trying this treatment but have balked at the cost, it's on sale right now. You can get either two or four 8 oz bottles at a 31% or 35% discount. I have been using this for three years and am very impressed. It's great in all engines but especially useful and effective in diesels and also in high performance turbo gas engines that are extra sensitive to fuel quality. It is not snake oil.

Thanks, John. Does this also increase the cetane rating of fuel?  Didn't see it mentioned in the product description. I'm currently using Hot Shots EDT.  Wondering if you know if the Archoil does not boost cetane, can it be used in combination with Hot Shots EDT?

I don't recall seeing cetane mentioned anywhere in their literature. I suspect it does not boost the cetane number, but it may not need to.

 

You would need to contact their customer service to see if it is ok to use with your other potion. Read through the tech articles if you haven't already. My personal suggestion is to try the 6200 by itself for a few tanks, then consider adding other stuff if you feel the need. I don't think you will need to use a cetane booster. My main reason for using the 6200 is to add lubricity to keep the fuel pump in my Cummins 5.9 happy. Newer engines don't need that, but your emissions system will be much happier with the 6200 and you will probably notice improved starting and maybe a quieter idle. This depends on whether your injectors are in good shape or not.

You can also use it for long term fuel storage for your power equipment and also as a shock cleaner by doubling the dose for a tank or two. Try it!

I have a 2016 Ram 2500 Cummins with 16K on it. (3rd Ram Cummins over a 15 yr. span)

 

Would you recommend additives on a newer Cummins like mine?

 

Also, would or could this threaten my warranty if had some catastrophic event at this youthful age of my truck?

 

Last question probably better asked at my dealer.

Here is a recent magazine review (pg46-47)

 

http://read.uberflip.com/i/637584-march-2016/45?

 

This product and also the oil treatment, which I do not use, won't hurt anything and you will probably notice some running benefits, maybe slightly increased mpgs. I would be really surprised if you didn't experience quicker and smoother cold weather starts.

 

I am amused when car and truck manufacturers recommend against any and all additives when real world testing proves that some of them are indeed beneficial. My Ram dealer likes to add special "enhancers" to my gear oil without my permission at an extra $40 per axle. That is what I really object to....

 

If you owned an older Ford Power Stroke with the sticky injector problem, you would bless Archoil for how well it makes those engines run.

 

Does your new truck keep track of the number of regens? That might be a good way to check if it is doing anything. You should see longer intervals between regenerations. That alone will boost mpgs noticeably, if you are a city driver. If you tow or drive all highway, maybe not.

Thanks John for your input.

 

Will seriously consider trying the product.

 

About dealers adding "enhancers" without permission, I too had this happen on my last 2012 Cummins. I went to the service manager, whom I know, and informed him this was unacceptable no matter what Ram is instructing them to do. He deleted the cost from my bill and told me they would not do that again without asking me.

I'm using it in my 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 with 45,000 miles on the odometer, and it definitely runs smoother.  Besides, if this offers extra protection for the injectors and lift pump then its worth every penny.
