The Science

Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 is a lubricity enhancing oil additive that increases the lubricating & wear reduction properties of the host oil. The product contains patented synthetic lubricants that have unique lubricating properties even compared to PAO or mPAO synthetics of the same viscosity. The anti-wear component of the formula is a patented carbon nano particle that fills in microscopic irregularities on the machined surface to provide a smoother surface for the lubricating film to form. The synergy of these components extends the base oil performance in shear stability, oxidation stability, film strength & especially friction reduction.

Benefits

Heat and friction silently steal power from your engine. The scientists from LSI Institute have uncovered a powerful lubricity agent…Hot Shot’s Secret FR3. One treatment of FR3 to your oil and your diesel will run cooler and have increased towing power. Negatively charged synthetic ester tenaciously attaches to all internal parts completely lubricating your engine.

Treatment Ratio

  • 5 quart (car): 8 ounces FR3
  • 15 quarts (truck): 23 ounces FR3
  • 45 quarts (semi): 64 ounces FR3

Add To:

  • Engine oil
  • Power steering
  • Hydraulic system
  • Differentials

Recommended Frequency:
Use one treatment of FR3 every oil change.

Use in All Engines:
Semi-trucks, pick-up trucks, farm equipment & autos. Effective in all engines including: Ford Powerstroke, Dodge Cummins, GM Duramax, Saab, Volkswagen, Audi. You can use FR3 to treat any oil-lubricated system except air conditioning and aircraft. Even though FR3 is an industrial product, you’ll find that small two cycle engines love it; just add FR3 to your oil before mixing it with the fuel. Your automobile, light truck or other personal vehicles will benefit from FR3 in the engine, power steering unit, and differential.

Dangers of Chlorinated Paraffins

This test shows that in a period of 100 hours at 300°F, a popular retail oil-additive begins to oxidize, causing sludge and stiction.

The Hot Shot’s Secret FR3 was subject to the same test conditions; remaining crystal clear, with no signs of oxidation on the steel bearings in the test tubes.

Oil in a turbo charger can reach temperatures of 400°F, which, over time breaks down engine oil causing stiction.

    Fr3 quieted my engine noise and delivered a smoother more consistent power curve, also seemed to help turbo lag.

    4 out of 5 FR3-Stiction Eliminator

    (verified owner)

    My car’s engine (100K miles) runs a little smoother and quieter. Since I used both products together, I can’t say one is doing better than the other. Also, my driving is different each day so I can’t give a definitive % increase but as a guess, I’d estimate a 5% gas mileage improvement. I believe the products work so I award 4 stars and once they improve this to the next level, then I’ll give that a 5 star – there’s always room for improvement.

    5 out of 5 Might be a fluke, but......

    OK, so I bought a 2000 isuzu with about 156,000 miles on it. It’s always ran hot, changed the Clutch fan a couple months ago, but still ran hot (about 3/4 on the gauge). Put the fR3 in the other day and the gauge hasn’t gone past 1/2. Is this a fluke or did this actually work…….I’m usually very skeptical about “snake” oils, but this one might actually work!

    5 out of 5 EXCELLENT PRODUCT!!

    (verified owner)

    Started running this product with oil changes after running the initial clean out of Stiction Eliminator on my 2001 F-250 Powerstroke 7.3. Vehicle has 253,000 miles and runs as strong as ever! I have loved all the products I have purchased. Just as advertised, I have noticed cooler engine temps as well as noise reduction at idle. Will continue to use at oil changes until my 1qt maintenance cycle of Stiction Eliminator. I would recommend all of your products.

    I got the stiction eliminator and fr3 in the mail today, I threw it in and went for a short drive to get it mixed up good and within the first mile I noticed a noticeable reduction in under the hood noise (which blew me away I didn’t expect that to happen that soon) I can’t speak for the mileage increase yet with the fr3 as I haven’t had the chance to take it on a long enough drive but I’m a believer and a lifelong customer

    Question

    I’m thinking of putting this in the transmission of a Massey Ferguson 451 farm tractor which operates the hydraulic system, brake system, and transmission system, it holds around 20 gallon of hydraulic fluid-to be verified before adding fr3- so I’m figuring a gallon of this. Will it work?

      It looks like this tractor may have wet brakes and wet clutches. If it does, the TSE (Transmission Stiction Eliminator) would be a better choice since we have not fully approved the FR3 in a wet clutch application (it worked well in the 2016 Duramax that we tested, but we need more data to confirm the results).

      If there are no wet clutches it would work great!

      so you are NOT recommending this product yet for motorcycles, since they all use wet clutches. another product says their friction additive works fine in wet clutches because it bonds to the metal clutch plates, but not the cork. what is your opinion of this claim?

      We have not officially recommended, correct, but may endorse using the FR3 in wet clutches in the future after thorough benefit testing. As far as the claims on another product, it makes sense that the additive only bonds to the metal surface…stay tuned!

    Question

    (verified owner)

    I have a 1996 Buick Roadmaster. The engine takes 5 quarts of oil. I just purchased two bottles of the 8oz size FR3. When doing an oil change, how do I use this product? Do I still use 5 quarts of oil, and an entire bottle of this 8oz FR3? Or do I add 4 quarts of oil and one bottle of FR3? I want to make sure I am not killing my engine by adding too much to the crankcase or too little oil at the same time.

      Hi Wes! You are correct in not overfilling or under-filling the crankcase, and are safe within the recommended indicator range on the dipstick.

      In the Roadmaster, please use roughly 4.75 quarts and the 8 oz bottle of FR3.

    FR3 oil additive has very noticeably improved engine performance and mileage in every gasoline powered vehicle I have used it in. Improved fuel economy, increased acceleration, and a much smoother running engine is what I have experienced using it. I have used several other products offered by Lubrication specialties and every one has performed exactly as claimed. These guys really know their products and are quick to answer any questions I have had. Customer Service has been a pleasure to speak with, their shipping is affordable (and often free!) and fast, and has always arrived well packed and in good condition. I am a very satisfied customer as well as a customer for life. Thanks LSI !!

    I have been testing FR3 in my 2008 Toyota Prius. I am consistently seeing 7-8% improvement in mileage on a car with 248,000 miles on it. Amazing stuff! I really like FR3. It actually DOES what is claimed. This is a quality product, NOT “snake oil” junk. My engine is quieter, smoother and getting better mileage. Since this product really works for me, I have recently added it to my wife’s 2006 Toyota Prius, my 2003 Ford Excursion 6.0L diesel, my push mower, my 4-cycle weed-eater, and my commercial 60″ 27-hp zero-turn mower. As soon as I receive more product, I plan to use it on our 2006 Pontiac Montana, the tiller and our 10k watt generator. Great stuff!!!! I run Amsoil 100% synthetic in everything I own, if anyone was curious. Now, FR3 is also standard issue for me with every oil change. Keep up the good work LSI !!!!

      Could I ask why you shouldn’t add stiction eliminator with FR3 all at once? Would it cause a problem or is mainly just the cost of the product. My truck is bogging while driving and blowing a little white smoke. I’ve used stiction eliminator before, and I was thinking about replacing the oil with 2 quarts of stiction eliminator and 16oz of FR3, then filling the rest with Rotella T4. Another question, is it bad to use FR3 in conventional oil? And my truck has never been run on synthetic based oil its whole life. It holds 12 quarts total. Thanks -Dan

      Hi Dan, here is a good article explaining the differences of Stiction Eliminator and FR3: http://www.hotshotsecret.com/stiction-eliminator-vs-fr3-whats-difference/

      I would recommend just replacing 2 quarts of oil with the full 2 quart dose of Stiction Eliminator. T4 and conventional oil is absolutely fine with FR3 or Stiction Eliminator (and it is simply an old myth that it will harm anything to switch from synthetic to conventional, & vice-versa). Keep us posted!

    I recently changed oil in my 2010 Ford F-150 and added FR3 also. On startup, you can really tell how it has reduced friction and runs smoother than before…..The claim of increased fuel economy is the truth as it has extended a tankful to 1.5 times to work….roughly about 6.5% on miles per gallon.

      We always recommend starting with the Stiction Eliminator for the full cleanup. At that point FR3 will keep the oil system clean and lubricated, thanks!

      Hi Curtis! The FR3 will absolutely work great in a turbocharged gas engine, and you’ll most likely have up to 5% more horsepower with the additive alone. Keep us posted on results!

      Here’s an article that helps clarify the differences between the products: http://www.hotshotsecret.com/stiction-eliminator-vs-fr3-whats-difference/

      Welcome to the team!

      In the past we have focused on primarily professional drivers (semi trucks, fleets, owner/operators, hot shotters, etc) so we decided to branch out further into the performance side of diesels and are the title sponsor of the NHRDA and Pro Street class sponsor of the Outlaw Diesel Super Series.

      Just by registering for an event at an NHRDA event you’ll receive a product, plus we provide complimentary samples of EDT at both NHRDA and ODSS that treat 100 gallons of fuel. At this time we haven’t finalized a Hot Shot’s Secret contingency plan, but if you stop by the booth and let us know how we can help, I’m sure we can figure something out. Thanks Sean!

      Absolutely! FR3 works great in both diesel and gasoline engines, and are compatible with synthetic, semi synthetic and conventional oils. FR3 is recommended at a 1.5oz per quart of engine oil. An 8oz bottle will treat 5 quarts, which would be slightly under treating your 7.5qt system but a small enough amount that you could top it off without draining or changing the oil. If you have over a thousand miles on this oil change I’d recommend waiting until the next oil change and asking the service technician to add about 10 or 12 oz of FR3 to your oil. Thanks!

      Stiction Eliminator and FR3 can be used together, but you’ll see more cost effectiveness when using them separately. FR3’s benefits are much more apparent when added to an already clean engine. Stiction Eliminator is recommended initially and at every third oil change, with FR3 inbetween, thanks!

Try it!!!! I think it has saved me some gas too. I like to drive like I’m Andretti so I’m not sure……? LOL!!! My engine in my ’95 Pathfinder LE has 151,000 on it now and I just bought it 6 months ago but it does seem to be WAY MORE responsive since I put the FR3 in it just 3 weeks ago. Shoot, just after I put it in it was more responsive!

    5 out of 5 Great for Zero turn Hydraulic systems

    (verified owner)

    I run quite a few Zero turn mowers all day cutting grass and I started using FR3 in our systems as an added measure of protection. Most notable observation was how it quieted down the hydraulic motors after hours of use, additionally it must be running cooler because the cooling fans in the hydraulic fluid system do not kick on nearly as often as the normally do. As to what it is contributing for long-term reliability in our units only time will tell. I definitely feel better knowing it’s in there and will continue to use. I previously used friction reducer in these units with great results so it wasn’t a question to try a new and improved product. Keep up the great work! Love you products

      Stiction Eliminator is recommended initially to clean the engine, you’ll see FR3’s benefits more quickly when the engine is already clean and the benefits are more apparent. FR3 contains some cleaner technology similar to Stiction Eliminator to ensure it gets to the surface inside an engine, so if you’re far away from your next oil change or do not have Stiction Eliminator, you can use FR3 initially.

      Mark, you’ll add FR3 the same way as Stiction Eliminator, FR3 replaces the recommended dosage of oil. For most vehicles, you can add the recommended dose to your existing oil and still be within the recommended levels on your engine oil dipstick.

    (verified owner)

    I started out using stiction eliminator and diesel extreme for some issues I was having running a little rough at idle and not quite as responsive as I would like under acceleration on my 2000 7.3. After running stiction eliminator and diesel extreme, the issues have disappeared, running smooth at idle and acceleration has been consistent. The next oil change I tried FR3 and with 248,000 miles so far, my truck runs like it was new again, idle is not only smooth but seems to be a little quieter, even my wife has noticed a difference at highway speeds at how quiet it is. No need to spend $50,000 on a new truck when you have products like these to keep an old truck running. Thanks

    5 out of 5 Great Product

    (verified owner)

    I wanted to write and say thanks for the 8oz FR3. In the order I placed I got this free and decided to try it in my 2015 F250 with the 6.7 Powerstroke. I am new to the diesel world but knew they were a little loud and rough. I had just changed the oil in the truck and had about 200 miles on the new oil when I put the FR3 in. After about 10 minutes of driving around I noticed everything was a little quieter and when I came to a stop the idle was much smoother. I also noticed a 2 mpg gain with this and using the EDT on every tank.

      Jeff, we currently do not have any head-to-head comparisons with that specific product. Stay tuned for lubricity videos!

      Hello Will,
      We can confidently say that it will last up to a year, and any further storage would require a thorough shake before use. Thanks!

    5 out of 5 Not just for engines!

    I got this to try out and I’ll say, it makes a decent small ball bearing lubricant so far! Not too thick and doesn’t stink of petroleum since it’s synthetic. It actually smells a bit like an energy drink.

      Yes absolutely! It works with all engine oil; just stay within the recommended dosage rate.

    Question

    I have used the diesel product in my ’04 Duramax to clear up injector failures and it worked beautifully. I also used the oil additive with great results.

    So I was wondering if there was a stiction eliminator for gas motors and is there an oil treatment for gas motors as well? Something similar to the nothing short of amazing results I got from the diesel additives.

      Good afternoon Kevin! The Original Stiction Eliminator and this FR3 oil additives work great in both diesel AND gas engines. Unfortunately, we do not have Hot Shot’s Secret branded gasoline FUEL additive, but I highly recommend you check out the 406 Injector Perfector, thanks! http://www.hotshotsecret.com/shop/primrose-406-injector-perfector/

    I ride a BMW k1600gt motorcycle, and the engine and the transmission share the oil. Can I use fr3 under these conditions ?

      Hello Mark,
      At this time we do not develop products that are compatible with wet clutches commonly found in oil systems like the one you described. FR3 can be used in motorcycle engines when they are separate from the primary/wet clutch or transmission, but we do not recommend it in systems like yours. In-house testing on wet clutches has had varied results, both favorable and unfavorable; but at this time cannot recommend it for your motorcycle.
      Thanks for your inquiry!

    I tried this product in my 2009 Honda Civic (155,000 miles). I was about 2,000 from my next scheduled oil change. The treatment only called for 8oz so i was able to just add it to my oil without draining anything. I instantly began to notice an increase in my fuel economy! I was averaging about 23 mpg before and now im up to about 27 mpg. I will definitely be using this product again after my next oil change! Hopefully my fuel economy will improve even more.

      Can this product also be used at the same time as the Stiction Eliminator, or should I run it in a future oil change?

      Can fr3 be used in a new motor or wait for a break in period before use

      If you’re using an oil specific for breaking in an engine, I would recommend using that break-in oil by itself, and then adding FR3 when you switch to your choice of engine oil. FR3 can definitely be used in a new engine. While the restorative capabilities of the FR3 won’t be as noticeable as an engine with 100K miles, you’ll be better off with the reduction of friction and fortified engine oil from the start!

      FR3 can be added before initial start up if you’re using engine oil or after the break in-period if you’re using a break-in fluid or oil. If you’re planning to use regular engine oil, for cost effectiveness I’d recommend a half dose for the initial start up interval, then a half dose every oil change until you are ready to run a full length oil change interval and at that point you can use FR3 as the label recommends. Thanks!

    My name is Jonathan. I own a Ford F550 a 2005 model year with 6 liter Power Stroke diesel. It’s been modified so it carries about 15 to 17,000 pounds daily. I discovered Hot Shot’s Secret by following an online forum and I can’t be happier as a user of Hot Shot’s Secret! I’ve noticed cooler operating temperatures, primarily that the engine runs so smooth and so quiet. I know that the Hot Shot’s Secret is definitely helping me out! My fuel economy is outstanding. I’m getting on average between 12-13 miles per gallon. I’m also using the [Friction Reducer] and the [Diesel Extreme] for the fuel, trying to treat every aspect of the engine. The customer support is outstanding! I’m getting preventative treatment, rather than reactive treatment. Hot Shot’s Secret, that’s the way to go!
