When STP started back in 1954, the founders called their product Scientifically Treated Petroleum. There have been many changes throughout the years and the STP® brand has stood the test of time. Now, STP® stands for Scientifically Treated Protection and has a range of products to help vehicles run better, longer.

No. All STP® products undergo extensive testing to evaluate their performance and are determined to be safe for use in vehicles both new and old. Our products are specifically formulated to help improve the performance of the gasoline or oil to which they are added, and will therefore help maintain the performance of your car.
STP® oil and fuel additives have been specifically formulated for use in four-cycle gasoline engines. Extensive testing in these engines has covered a broad range of passenger car usage and has clearly demonstrated the value of our products in these applications. However, we have not evaluated the performance of our products in two-cycle engines. Therefore, we do not currently recommend that our fuel additives be used for two-cycle applications. Our Multipurpose Motor Treatment (MPMT) is designed for both 2 and 4 stroke engines and can be used in both the fuel and oil tanks.

STP has specially designed products for diesel engines and has labeled them as diesel products. They have been thoroughly tested in specific diesel applications. STP® Multipurpose Motor Treatment is safe for diesel engines.
The storage life of STP® products is guaranteed for a minimum of five years from the date of manufacture. However, although our testing guarantees a minimum of five years' shelf life, our experience has indicated that if our products are stored properly, they can remain stable and retain their effectiveness for even longer than noted above.
All STP® products are individually labeled for dose and treatment intervals.
STP® products are completely compatible with all other standard fuel and lubricant additives that are intended for similar use. However, mixing fuel or lubricant additives is not recommended, nor should it be necessary.
