    I honestly DONT know how it got there, but it just did.

    I say give it a go, i use one called Nitrox cuz it sounds cool lol, only used it once so far in the 2 years, cuz its not cheap lol. Look it up online or ebay, the more expensive it is the better the signs, i think?

    no, it doesn't do s**t, now send them to me for free! :lol:

    It won't hurt anything at all, and you might feel better throttle response or power whichever especially if you been runnning crap gas. Just pour it in the gas tank, and make sure you atleast have half a tank.

    i throw one in every once in a while, the fuel system one. the gas treatment doesn't do s**t.

    I have always used the Chevron with Techthron stuff.

    But I think the Gas Treatment of ment for the winter months to prevent freezing in the fuel lines...

    none of those store additives work, buying gas itself with additives doesnt work (even top tier gas). not enough detergents in them to make a difference. only thing that helps is lubecontrol.com gas and oil additives. only product i would ever use in my car and have been for 3 yrs without issues.

    STP advertises that they use "Jet Fuel" in their additives.

    Translation? Kerosene

    Kerosene has about the same octane as diesel.

    Back in the day, when oil was .10 cents a barrel, farmers would wash their equipment in kerosene. It would leave a layer of parrafin on all the equipment and protect it.

    Do you really want that stuff running through your injectors?

    It probably won't do anything. Good, bad, or otherwise.

    I was reading the back of the bottle, and they are implying the use of JetFuel. I think JetFuel is a certain brand that makes chemicals for this stuff, not ACTUAL jet fuel.
