There have been a lot of discussions on fuel system cleaners lately. I was in AutoZone yesterday and they have a special on Techron (20 oz.) bottles. The regular price is $12.99 here in Virginia, and it is buy-one-get-one FREE... Just thought those of you who use this stuff ought to know. I think the sale is over on 4/30.

FYI- Costco sells ProGuard, an additive roughly half the strength of Techron Concentrate. Still a good deal considering you'll have to use twice as much but it's not the same thing as Autozone's Techron.

Isn't Techron in some gases? Seems redundant to add an additive to fuel that is designed to keep ones fuel delivery system clean.
Maybe if you have a bike setting all winter? But then one used Sea Foam or some such, no?
Then again if you get your gas a Bubba's old gas emporium additives may be necessary.


Why is it that 'Stupid' stands out so well?

I frequently go to Chevron gas stations, and buy Chevron ... gas ... with ... ? Oh, yeah, Techron.
So why add it separately?
Plus, I have never in any vehicle, since the 60's maybe, had any indication that I needed it.
But since I like to get Chevron, I get it.
I also like to get Sinclair where available. Just another of my preferences, but I don't know what additives it has.

Chevron recently pulled out of the southeastern states. That is why we would add buy it as an additive.

biometrics,....thanks for the Techron tip. I bought up a bunch of it for my RT yesterday to keep her humming. Best stuff out there. Excellent catch!

BITOG has an interesting link to an article about Blackstone Labs: Used Oil Analysis.
