As far as I know there are only three fuel additives that work. Techron cleans fuel and intake systems, TCP clears lead deposits from aircraft sparkplugs, and Prist reduces algae and fuel line freezeups. The rest either do nothing or more harm than good.
I have been using Lucas products in my cars for years and have had excellent results. My previous cars have had over 500000 kms and no oil burning issues, I also use their fuel cleaner and notice crisper takeoffs and a better running engine.
Just an opinion.
True, but you have to use a calibrated metric crescent wrench and a left-handed hammer, plus 12 feet of waterline, to tighten the left-hand threads on the alternator cap (dealer only).
Remember though, the newer (1953+) cars have an ambihelical hex nut that attaches to the marselvane output resistor. Because of the high malfuctance flow possible, they're reverse-threaded nuts - the more you try to loosen them, the tighter they get..
Well thats only because they use unilateral phase detractors. You have to use the cardinal grammeters to calibrate the osmolality of the dingle arm in relation to the muffler bearing. Cmon man, this is internal combustion 101.
I've had good results with Techron too. If you have an Advance Auto Parts in your area they often put the 12oz bottles on sale for $4 (50% off). So for $8 you get 24oz compared to the 20oz bottle which is normally $12 but sometimes on sale for $8.
I put B-12 in my old Cutlass twice and both times I had a clogged fuel filter within 100 miles. Maybe it loosened up gum in the tank? It also seemed to run smoother, but only while it was in the tank.
Call me crazy but I had a p0420 code for my Catalytic converter and I filled up with chevron techron 87 octane and after drivin about 20 miles my engine light went off and the p0420 code is history. I'm convinced
