I usually try to buy gas here locally at a shell station that sells a lot of gas. On a trip of course you never really know what you are getting. Do any of you run a additive regularly?
I use Stabil at the end and very beginning of the riding season for the same reason. Also, I put a single dose of Techron in a full tank after season is underway and try to run it until the low fuel light comes on to help keep fuel injector clean. Probably hocus-pocus but I read somewhere Techron is the only fuel additive proven to work. (Probably on Chevron website, ha ha!)During the riding season here, usually March - October, I never do because of being on my bike several times a week, so gas does not get old. However during Nov- March I add sea foam to each tank just in case bike sits several weeks without riding so it doesn't get old. Never a problem.
There is ONE proven cleaning chemical for combustion chambers and injectors. It is polyetheramine or P.E.A. for short.EverytimeIs it snake oil and does nothing/or is it really cleaning out my fuel injectors
DOES ANY ONE REALLY KNOW FOR SURE????
What's in the Mystery oil? From their MSDS:If I were to use an additive on a regular basis, it would be Marvel Mystery Oil. Yep that's right, I said it. It's one of the oldest chemicals that was originally created by the Marvel Carburetor Company back in the day. And I do mean back in the day! I have been using it for decades. I use it in virtually every gas operated engine I have. In my opinion, it is one of the best carbon dissolvers and top cylinder lubricants I have ever used. Used regularly it will keep your valves, injectors and pistons clean. Recommendation is 4 ounces per 10 gallons of gas. I don't recommend it for water dissipation. However, if some of you are old enough, you will remember a product called Siloo for Gas Tanks. It was sold in a tall orange can.
