Where can I find this can I get it local or order it ... I will say I'm not much for putting additives in my cars they only put band aids on wounds I rather fix them but if his works good maybe
It's not a quick fix...it's preventative Maintenance ...when I change my oil it beads up on my plastic oil drain container ...after seeing that and the way my engine sounds I was a believer

This one correct? @joegr @04_Sport_LS how do you feel about using this?
yes
I called the Liqui Moly Customer Service to ask the differences between Cera Tec and the 2009 Anti-Friction Oil Treatment and they transferred me to Mr. Stefan Braun, Application Specialist, direct number 714-913-3928. Very nice, very helpful. He can and will answer any and all questions.

Again I say... this product does not repair anything it just claims to give more rpm and better fuel economy to the car because it creates less friction on metal to metal parts...many ppl would call this Snake Oil...I have seen great results in all my cars and truck using this line of products so I'm a sucker I guess :D

I've heard of some similar stuff and actually bought some to put in my diesel truck, haven't actually used it yet though. Been using STP oil treatment in this car for two oil changes so far, might switch to that other stuff though cuz it's supposed to be way better I've heard as well.

If you are using the standard STP stuff... it's too thick. It's almost like honey. It may prevent the oil from getting to/through some of the smaller passages at the top end of the engine.

The tolerances in the engine in the LS are much tighter than older style engines.

Save the STP for the older engines... but I don't even use that in my '95 F-150 with over 200k miles.
