Unfair to list this way! This implies equal parts of each, not the overwhelming amounts of distillates and solvents, and minute amounts of the others. You need to specify percentages, and the last three are down in the .1% range, while distillates and solvents are in the 99.9% range.

Ford, GM, Chrysler, et al don't recommend this stuff with modern oils and fuels.

Personally, I've got better stuff to spend my few $$ on, but I doubt using it in moderate amounts hurts anything.
Subscribed to the KISS principle!
