I honestly don't think I am going to be able to continue to afford Aces IV as much as I'd like to keep adding it to my vehicles. If my calculations are correct, it is going to cost me approximately $6.00 more with each fill up. I have two old Dodges; One has stock 1980 360 4 barrel and the other is a new stroked 410 c.i.d. smallblock. If it matters, the stock 360 has a flat tappet cam and the stroker is a roller setup.
If I can only afford to use it on say two of my cars, which two would benefit the most? I might not even be able to continue that but would like to know in case I am able.
What you are forgetting is that ACES IV contributes to between 8% and 10%
fuel economy. So if you are paying 2.80 per gallon of premium and you are adding ACES IV @ .31 per gallon and it is 19 gallons here is how the numbers work.
$2.80 x .08 = 22.4 cents
22.4 x 19 = $4.26 in savings.
ACES @ .31 x 19 = $5.89.
5.89 - 4.26 = $1.63 per tank of fuel and all the benefits beyond that are free....detergency, lubricity, ignition improving etc.
Obviously the 360 4bbl car was put together when you had 300 ppm sulfur as a high pressure lubricant for the rings and the valves/guides. You would definitely want to run it in there.
On the new stroker, ring wear and bearing wear are important things to keep from having. You aren't going to drive it like Miss Daisy....LOL.
For $1.63 per tank net, it is in my mind a simple choice to use it vs not using it.
Give me a call and I can see if there is anything I can do to assist you on this order.
