Lucas. Seafoam is a close second. No flashy bottle, no hooky jingle. It just works.

BG. Its the only thing mechanics (good mechanics) will use. Its a little more expensive but it works wonders.

Default RE: best fuel system cleaner?

had a bad sputter/cutting out ford changed out the MAF the fuel pump adjusted the computer and could not get it to stop cutting out and so i put 1 can of BG44K in my car with a full tank of gas and b4 1/2 of the tank was gone the car ran like a raped ape. That stuff is the best out the there i have used it and its the only fuel system cleaner that i have ever used that actually works, i recommend that everyone uses it in there tank its A+++


as for seafoam


IMO seafoam is a gimmick/joke its something that you would see at 2in the morning being sold by the Oxey Clean guy, that make ppl think that the car is smoaking that must be doing something to help, but in fact its just playing on simple minds that dont know any better, my buddy has a 95 LT1 Z28 that he did seafoam 2-3 times a year thinking that it did something like clean the valves lifters and outher parts in the motor untill he did a head and cam swap and found all the normal sings of carbon build up and worn out valve stem seals, the only thing the sea foam did was clean out the injecters out and burn a hole in his pocket, this is just my opinion (dont buy it)

I hate to disagree with you, but I recently seafoamed my car and it ran smoother and idled down faster after i treated it with seafoam. Seems like 5 bucks well spent to me.

Secondly, I had a slight valve tick on my car and I decided to try some lucas fuel conditioner and after a tank of gas the valve tick was gone and the car seemed to rev up faster and more smoothly. At the same time as the seafoam I also changed my oil to mobil 1 5-20 and added one quart of lucas oil stabilizer (synthetic version) and I swear the car seems to pull slightly harder at the top end and just run better overall. I may be wrong but this is just my opinion.
