Have you removed smog devices or not? Sometimes when an EGR valve gets stuck open, it affects cold performance more than warm performance. In addition, with all those vacuum lines, I'm sure some are leaking, and some of those hoses might have been r

I don't see RP 75w90 having much of an advantage over other 75w90 synthetics. However, if you are comparing it to conventional oil, RP is better. I have RP in my car, and I used it in my mom's 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but only because I got a very

That is convenient. That being said I wouldn't put a purolator product on my bike. At least not until I see a significant improvement in their QA.

B12 is stronger than MMO, Lucas or Seafoam. I added a half a can to an '87 Ranger the other day. It had less than half a tank. I drove it for maybe 20-25mins and I was definitely impressed what it did to the truck. Accelerated better and felt

I use the Marine Stabil every time I fill up. I get the big bottle and just add 1/2 to 1oz every time I fill my tank with more than 10gals. All the small engine stuff I have gets a dose as well.

Nope!! Too strong of stuff to be using at every fill up!! You are just wasting money on it. Use it once a month or every 1000 miles. I use B12, mmo, Lucas UCL, or Seafoam every so often. All are great!!
