hey guys,

is it true that shell's v-power contains five times more cleaning agents than other brands?? and is it a good idea to use fuel additives once in a while? (such as STP products)

thanks~

Don't use additives. I once read an article by a chemical engineer who works for a major oil company formulating gasoline additive packages. His advice is to change gasoline brands every 5,000 miles. The reason he gave is that all gasoline brands have unique additive packages, but they all start to develop deposits after about 5,000 miles. The additives in another brand will tend to dissolve the deposits left by the previous brand. I alternate among Shell, Mobil, BP/Amoco and Philips 66. Those are the major brands sold around here. If I could get Chevron, I would use that too.
