Redline, Lucas, or Chevron TECHRON...

Lucas is readily available at Walmart and many other stores. A big bottle runs right around $10 at Walmart and treats 100 gallons of gas.

My '03 Cobra jumped from 13 mpg to 16 mpg after running a full bottle of the Lucas through 6 tanks.

I work at a parts store so I got to answer that question a lot. The best I have used and the only ones I recommed is seafoam or lucas.

Not to thread jack but has anyone used seafoam in their crank case or run it thru vac lines? I have used it in my tank and it works wonderfully

STP Fuel system cleaner once a month
STP Octane boost at every fill up on Shell V-Power 95 or Mobil 98

STP Injector Cleaner once every 2 months

Has actually made a noticeable difference to my tired old L20E...
