Why do you need running boards on a Sportage :?: The vehicle isn't that high.

I never tried the Amsoil type, I use the Pennzoil fuel conditioner once in a while.

I heard the cetain additives do give a "nice boost", however they decrease the MTBF of the engine... :(

Mean Time Before Failure or Mean Time Between Failures

Do you get better mileage or less carbon in the exhaust, how do you know it helps ?

Where did you hear that from?

The engine runs quieter with the Amsoil Concentrate and performs better with the Cetane boost.

Heard that from a person who works with commercial diesel engines.

OK ... more reason to use small amounts (because of the potency)

i wonder if its necessary to change certain things when they say it is.

I ask this because when we reached 30K, we were told at that servicing that we needed to change break pads. We opted not to do it then as we didn't think it was necessary and did it at the 35K instead.

good luck in your 30K next week, hope its one of your 'free labour' days :|

Some things might need to change, but ask why. If there is visible wear and low residual life on the brake pads..then safer to change it if possible. Stuff like oils, filter you can look at and know.

Alternatively, the manual might assist in knowing when you need to change certain things like fluids etc.
