    That stuff DOES work, they have a whole line of products. We've been using BG products for over ten years at the dealership I work at, as a matter of fact, every dealer in Memphis uses this stuff.

    I used on my '82 K5 about 7 years ago, seemed to work OK. Also used the BG MOA (motor oil additive) at the same time and the truck ran much better. Most mechanics I know swear by the stuff.

    I don't think it adds any HP, but it does clean up the fuel/exhaust system. So you get back what you've lost to carbon deposits.

    I dont know about the stuff you are talking about. I have heard it works. Some of those fuel additives do work. I use Lucas Fuel treatment. It does as claimed. My Mustang is very sensitive to fuel. I can add some Lucas and feel a differance. Dont think it is faster but it just runs better and smoother. I use it on about every third tank
    I pulled my old injectors in my Stang beacaue I wanted to upgrade them to the newer Bosch 3 style. Figgured with 150 K on them they would be dirty and cruddy. But they were excelent condition and squeaky clean. I figgure regular use of "S-N-A-K-E O-I-L" Kept them that way.

    44K got it's name because they recomend useing it every 44 thousand miles. That's like once ever 3 or 4 years for me.
