Default V-power gas...

I just wanted to say this stuff works wonders if you have a dirty carb. I ran some of this through my G16 an it was the best 11 dollars Ive spent. It really runs alot healthier with this kind of gas in it.

Has anyboy eles tried this stuff?

I tried it back when paying $2.05 for premium was outrageous. I didn't notice a whole lot of difference.

High-octane gas in an engine that doesn't require it will cause carbon to build up in the combustion chamber.

If you need some good cleaner try sea-foam its in a metal can, thats stuff works great helped my 4 wheeler,64 chrysler, and my old ezgo.You just put it in the tank or run it right in the carb to clean it real quick.

Yeah I ran some Seafoam through my old 89 Chevy work van and it cut out all the rough idling and smoking it was doing. It also smoked out the whole Wendies parking lot!

I have yet to run it through the cart. How do you put in it. Like how long do you let it set before running it, ect.

Your supposed to run it through the carb to clean the carbon out. When you run it through the tank, does it still smoke? I dont think running it through the gas tank does anything...

Why would it need to? Carbon is only released from the combustion reaction when it, well, combusts. Ideally, it combusts inside the engine.

If you add it to the tank it dont smoke, but when its added straight to the carb they become smoke machines.
