Never used it, BK riding my ass to do it.

Cons: I am sure it stinks and smokes, don't want to use it. Keep hearing what a miracle product it is, convince me. rolleyes.gif

All opinions wanted here.

BK probably dumps the whole bottle in a gallon of gas.
I use it everytime I get gas for my boat, just a capful, plus a shot of marine stabil to keep it running smooth.
I suppose if you never used it and you had a lot of carbon build up you would want to use it a little heavier and it would smoke alot as it was burning.
Take a look at your piston through the plug hole let us know how bad the carrbon buildup is.

I use it.Its been around for a long time & all the ol timers swear by it.Thats good enough for me.Its suppose to be the best thing going to help burn off any water that gets in your fuel & helps keep the carbon down too.I add just alittle bit at each fill up(whatever it calls for)& then I put a full can in,last fill up of the season.I ran that down till almost empty,so I should be ready for this year.Its not cheap,a gallon will run ya close to $70.Advanced auto has the small cans on sale all the time.Gman's using some shit you can only buy at home depot,maybe he will chime in.

Damn, that's pricey. I use alcohol additive at every fill up for breaking up any water.

You should have used some in the burb, when you pulled the head off it looked real messy. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/laugh.gif
