Fuel cleaner
 
Hey there guys and girls it's been a while since Ive been on and now i have a question.

I am still pretty new to having a turbo car and one that runs on premium gas. my question is should use fuel cleaner once in a while to keep everything clean or dose running 93 oct like I'm doing not build up a whole lot of gunk in the system?


Just thought id ask because this isn't a project WRX its my baby and my D2D so I want it to be around and running like new for as long as it can. Thanks

I like to throw a bottle of STP fuel injector cleaner in my gas tank every 30k or so. I do it at the same time as the rest of the factory recommended maintenance so I don't forget. According to my tuner, being consistent with the type of gas you use is more important. I use Shell 93 as much as possible.

ok thanks.. so stp is good then? I used to use lucus full fuel system cleaner in my old car it worked good but i didn't know what to use for my WRX.

I know its off topic but up here in NH i found a shell station and for 93 oct it was $3.60 I thought i was in heaven ahah.

Most fuel treatments are snake oil.

I think they're probably all very similar

RINGY91 11-07-2012 06:45 AM

ya thats what i figured but i got confused because my friend was talking about some sea foam stuff and said that was the best. i don't know though ive only used the one from lucus.

RINGY91 11-07-2012 06:46 AM

You'll find I have a dry sense of humor and horrible grammar skills....

BG is another good one.

RINGY91 11-08-2012 06:45 AM

Damn pzr2874 how do you know so much about all this ahaha do you just sit at home and surf the web? just messing with you.


its ok psinuse im awful at spelling too :)

pzr2874 11-08-2012 07:56 AM

haha... I've tried them all but think about it. There is no magical fuel tank additive that is "end all". These 3 together are IMHO.

RINGY91 11-08-2012 10:55 AM

good point. id like a magical engine that never gets tired and old haha. once again though thanks for all the info.
