I'd dump a bottle of BG 44k in there and be done with it for the next year. I don't like adding stuff each fillup.

amsoil PI claims to lubricate, but i wouldn't use it, or anything, that expensive on every fill.

a good smokeless(ashless) 2 stroke oil would give you a lube for every fill if that's desired.

The only cleaning I've ever had done was a power EFI cleaning at Midas for like $75 I think it was. It worked well! The car seemed more responsive and my miles per tank went up about 20 miles or so.

Seafoam was made for pulling a vacuum hose and running half a bottle into the car letting it site for a few hors and then running in the rest of the bottle. 100 miles latter you need an oil change and check / clean your plugs. B12 is about the same thing but cheaper sold where seafoam is not sold.

It’s good to thin out the oil to help with a flush right before you an oil change or to toss in the gas tank but would never put it in the tank at the mix it calls for.


I do use rubbing alcohol right before a cold chill to help with gas lines freezing up. It’s the same as isopropyl alcohol but in a cheaper package.

But rubbing alcohol is watered down. I don't like the idea of adding water to my tank. Although it would be expensive, I bet Everclear or Virginia Lightning (VA Lightning is nothing more than legally produced moonshine) dumped in the tank would clean it out.

BG 44 K was what we used. In the old days of pintle type fuel injectors it would make a difference. The newer designs are not as susceptible to getting gummed up.

In eastern Virginia everything is 10% alcohol, to reduce emisssions. They had to drain the tanks when the stations changed over to keep the alcohol from dissolving all the accumulated goop in the station's tanks.

I havent used any additive after the change over to 10% alcohol here.

regards
gary

I like ethanol in my gas. It keeps me from needing to buy things like HEET.

Right rubbing alcohol is 80 or 90% depending on witch one you buy.
