    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Delivers what they say
    Cons: Price is a little high & Doesn't do as much for new cars

    Summary: The FTC got zMax two ways. The first was if you use it in a new car you won't get the percent of increase that they claimed. The second was in the corrosion test, they only tested the product alone. zMax is meant to be added to motor oil so the results ... read more

    Pros: Keeps the valve clean, makes things quiet and smooth, improves gas mileage. Pays for itself?
    Cons: Not cheap, an expensive hassle to meet all requirements for the 150,000 guarantee.

    Summary: I'm as skeptical as anybody. I've tried and rejected many "miracle" products for different uses, occasionally finding one that really worked as claimed. One or two of these products are now invaluable to me, among dozens that were a waste of time and ... read more

    Pros: Cost effective, gas savings probably covered my cost of Z-Max, easy to use
