Millions of cars and trucks on the road today were made in the 1980s and 1990s, when motor oil manufacturers began reducing the zinc and phosphorus content of motor oil to meet Environmental Protection Agency requirements. That means many of your customers are relying on vehicles with older engines that need extra metal protection and lubrication that today’s motor oils aren’t providing.

These engines need ZDDP (zinc dialkyldithiophosphate), a zinc and phosphorus engine oil additive, to help prevent camshaft wear, piston scuffing and damage to lifters and the valvetrain, all of which can lead to reduced oil pressure, compression loss, lower fuel economy, leaks, smoking, noise, lost power and shorter engine life.

Fortunately, there is an inexpensive solution you can recommend to your customers to lubricate and protect their older vehicle engines while boosting performance and extending engine life for as long as possible.

Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment is a petroleum oil performance supplement containing high levels of ZDDP to boost performance and protect older internal engine components, including pistons, flat tappet camshafts, lifters and the valvetrain. In addition to being an anti-wear additive, it also helps prevent corrosion.

This high-performance formula stabilizes motor oil to prevent viscosity and thermal breakdown. It also reduces friction and wear, especially at start-up, helping to eliminate dry starts. Less friction means less wear and a cooler-running, longer-lasting engine.

Rislone Engine Oil Supplement with Zinc Treatment is designed specifically for older engines and should be used in 2003 and older gasoline engines or 2006 and older diesel engines. Newer engines have been designed to function properly with modern oils.
