If you are putting it in the gasoline, it is the same as the Marvel Mystery Oil(MMO) that I use. The MMO has different additives and is intended to be added to the oil or gas. The AFT works but I've always worried about the additives in it. Good Luck, Rick

I have never heard of it making th ings run cooler, it will clean an engine though.  I saw a mechanic pour almost a whole bottle thru the carb of an old car that was running bad and smoking like a train. Thing ran great afterwards. Cleaned all the carbon out of the cylinders.
