Hot Shot’s Secret Expands Distribution of EDT+ Winter Defense


Recommended Posts

rssImage-3df81e7b520572c2108cd3c05046063d.jpeg

Hot Shot’s Secret recently announced new distribution of EDT+ Winter Defense, a seven-in-one anti-gel fuel booster developed to keep diesel-powered vehicles operable and improve cold starts when temps start to drop below freezing.

The 16-ounce measurable squeeze bottle is now available at all locations of O’Reilly Auto Parts stores nationwide.

EDT+ Winter Defense offers all the benefits of Hot Shot’s Secret’s fuel additive, Everyday Diesel Treatment, and adds anti-gel and anti-icing properties to reduce fuel-line freeze-ups to keep diesel engines fully operational as low as minus 40 F, according to the company.  

The all-year diesel additive includes a powerful cetane booster, lubricity additive, injector cleaner and fuel-stabilizer chemicals to improve winter performance and protection of the fuel system, the company says.   

EDT+ Winter Defense is recommended for all diesel-powered vehicles, including cars, trucks, heavy-duty, semis, vans, buses, heavy-duty and ag equipment, and will not harm after-treatment systems, according to Hot Shot’s Secret, which recommends using before wax starts to form.

“In many parts of the country we have already seen heavy snowfall and cold temperatures,” Hot Shot’s Secret Brand Manager Josh Steinmetz said. “Diesel fuel is prone to wax deposits starting at 30 degrees. This product lowers the fuel-gelling point while improving the fuel combustibility, resulting in easier cold starts, reduced DPF regens and improved fuel economy. We’re very excited to be able to announce expanded distribution with O’Reilly Auto Parts before we face the brunt of the winter season.”

EDT+ Winter Defense is available in multiple sizes: 8, 16 and 32 ounces; 1, 5 and 55 gallons; and 275 gallons bulk at www.hotshotsecret.com.

      Brian Cruickshank’s journey in the aftermarket industry began at Babcox Media, his first job right after college. Initially envisioned as a temporary position, his role evolved into a 29-year career that laid the foundation for his industry expertise. At Babcox, Cruickshank worked across various segments, starting as a junior editor for Underhood Service magazine. Cruickshank ultimately became the editor of Counterman Magazine and aftermarketNews, experiences that gave him comprehensive insights into the distribution market and prepared him for his current role as a Partner at Schwartz Advisors.
      Cruickshank’s engagement with the aftermarket community extends beyond his editorial roles. His involvement with Auto Care Connect, which began during his early career, has been a significant part of his professional development. This involvement continues today, with many Schwartz Advisors’ team members actively participating in Auto Care initiatives. 
      Cruickshank’s tenure at Counterman provided a front-row seat to the significant changes in distribution. He witnessed numerous major acquisitions, such as O’Reilly’s acquisition of CSK. These events were part of a broader trend of consolidation that has transformed the landscape of the aftermarket distribution sector. When Cruickshank entered the industry, he remembers more than 15 program distribution groups. This number has since dwindled due to mergers and acquisitions, illustrating the ongoing consolidation within the industry.
      Cruickshank notes that the consolidation trend shows no signs of slowing. Schwartz Advisors is deeply entrenched in the distribution sector, and firsthand experiences suggest that interest in both light vehicle and heavy-duty distributors remains strong. While the light vehicle distribution market is more mature, there’s increasing activity in the heavy truck segment. Factors driving this consolidation include the desire of founder-owned companies to either exit or find well-capitalized partners to support growth.
      Despite the ongoing consolidation, Cruickshank believes there is still a viable future for independent distributors. He anticipates that the number of distributors will continue to shrink, driven by acquisitions and interest from private equity. However, he underscores that well-run, profitable regional and local distributors will continue to have a place in the market.
