    Fraud in Automotive Engine and Oil Treatment Additives and Synthetic Oil

    Recently, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has alleged that Valvoline's "TM8" and Quaker State's "Slick 50" products made false and unsubstantiated claims concerning their ability to reduce engine friction and wea, extend engine life, and improve fuel economy. Valvoline's "TM8" is manufactured by Ashland, Inc. "Slick 50" is made by subsidiaries of Quaker State Corporation. The benefit of these synthetic oils products is claimed to be their "Teflon" additive.

    In a related matter, the FTC last year charged that spark plugs manufactured by SplitFire, Inc. were advertised with unsupported claims promising that the SplitFire spark plugs would improve automobile performance and economy, improve fuel economy, horsepower, and emissions.
