I can't exactly say if this is just a gimmick like that "putting acetone in your gas" thing, but it's definitely interesting and a good read.

I've been doing it for a few tanks, have noticed an improvement. I use the Super Tech from Wal Mart, it's made by SOPUS (Shell/Pennzoil)

That's pretty thrifty, I'm a little weary to try it though, I use the Lucas Fuel treatment after roughly 2000 miles, plus I only use 93 Octane my L99 4.3 gets like about 19.5-20 mpgs in the city and honestly probably 29 or 30 on the high way, When I go autocross I drive from Saratoga New York to loudon New Hampshire, run the whole event and drive back home and still have more than a half tank when I pull in the drive way... but again that's an L99 that might put 150 horses to the road

I noticed on my truck that at first, it ran a little rough (slightly) then cleared up to run better than when I first started. My guess is there is crap in the system getting "cleaned out" which could be good or bad I suppose with such high mileage on it. But it's running great compared to how it was. Supposedly this is just a cheaper way of using Marvel Mystery Oil, etc.

The Impala is running like balls marie compared to before though, the car has leaky valve seals and this seems to clear it up while you run the car.

I work at a marina, we been doing this on and off for years, so customers don't want last years gas left in the boats, so we pump it out into a barrel and put it in the shop trucks

Just an update, both my truck and car have been running way better on this stuff.

My truck is out of commission due to the rear end but had been running great until that happened.

My Impala's gas gauge works perfect now. It was stuck when I bought the car, would only work once in a while. Since I started doing this it began working more often, now over the past week and a half since I've had to drive it every day, the gauge works perfect!

I'm going to give this a try this week. My idle is off on cold mornings and my mileage has dropped significantly since the winter blend gas started up again. Hopefully this can help fix those problems. Considering I'm running the original fuel system (except the pump) I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to clean things out a bit.
