Which engine treatment in the gas tank?

I am going to drive my Weber 32/36 carbed 2002 about 550 miles in one day this Saturday and thought about putting in some additive/cleaner/something in the tank since I will go through at least a tank or two there and back.

Does anyone have suggestions/preferences/ or brands to stay away from?

TIA

Chuck

It is a bit expensive at $20 per bottle but it is truly AMAZING stuff. My brother is a mechanic, and often times when cars would not pass emmision test, he would suggest running this stuff through...75% would come back and pass!

I tried it on my 32/36 and it made the transition to the secondary a smooth process instead of an on/off feel.

Damn, I sound like an infomercial.

Most (all?) major brand modern fuels contain additives and detergents. I doubt you'd really need to add anything special.I swear by 93 Octane from major companies. An extra 14 cents a gallon ain't nothin'!

All the best!

I just had meeting with a BG rep a few days ago, trying to sell his products. Quite interesting stuff.

it is a good additive, I bought it at a Volvo dealer around the corner from where I live, right around $20.00 per bottle, also use 93 octane gas.

When replacing my intake manifold and carb recently, I noticed the black crud on the valves.

I live in the San Francisco bay area, and the highest octane around here I believe is 91...

You CAers have rust-free cars and smog laws, and we right-coasters have 94 octane gas (Yes - thanks, Sunoco) and cars on diets, losing weight by the imminent doom of rot and by the removal of emissions equipment.

Hey, what are Oregon and Washington like? Maybe I'll do a post-doc out there!

some of your local garages, I have never seen it in any auto store. Our local Volvo dealer carries it as does the shop that worked on my '73tii and did some recent work (they removed the York a/c compressor) on my '74 2002, Eksten Autoworks, Rochester, N.Y.
