I have always added about 1oz of TC-WS to 3-4 gallons of fuel during fill up at gas stations for my older cars.
I am wondering if i should start adding TC-WS to my new car thats less than 500 miles similar to my old cars.

ANy other recommendations as in oil or gas additives for this new car ?

Thanks in advance

TopTier gas with no additives. If you want to add something go for Techron but wait until maybe 10k as your injectors should not need cleaning when new.

Don't use any additives of any kind.

Top Tier gas only.

One bottle of Techron once or twice a year.

Don't worry about 640:1 ratio 2-stroke oil until you've got over 50,000 miles, imho... I guess 1000:1 or so wouldn't hurt for now. 1oz to 10 gallons of gas = 1280:1

Are you talking about something like this? I have been using Techron in my 2006 twice a year since 90K and I do not see any difference. I was/am considering trying out something else. May be I will give a shot to this. I started using BP or Costco gas since 100K.

If someone doesn't mind a little deviation, how does this thing really work as opposed to Techron?

I put over 300K miles on all my vehicles. My last vehicle I did that with was a Town Car. I never used any of that stuff. I use Exxon-Mobil 87 regular 99% of the time. For some unknown reason Chevron fuel makes all my vehicles ping.

That's what a lot of people that tweak their fuel use. It is used as a UCL, it doesn't clean injectors as well as something like Techron would.

No point in adding anything on a new car - it will reward you more by running better grade fuel. I prefer Seafoam, but whatever you add I really don't think it's necessary until 10K or so.

You could add a mix of Star Tron and MMO to the gas every tank and then a mix of Slick 50 and Tufoil to the crankcase every 3000 miles with a oil filter magnet as well as a drain plug magnet and a fuel line magnet.
Then I would wax the car and dress the tires and use nitrogen mix in the tires.
Just kidding smile TT gas it and forget it...

Don't forget the fuzzy dice.......
What kind of new car did you get?

Just use a good top tier fuel. Don't use snake oils.

Tried it a few years ago when there was only bad gas in my area. Luckily a couple stations selling good fuel with good detergents (Mobil) opened up recently.

Found that the tcw3 messed up the engine after a couple weeks. Also oil can increase the injector spray droplet size to make combustion less efficient. I like top oil but not in a modern engine. The PCV will do that for you.

I continue to use top oil in my gen and the mower and snow blower.

The engines always out last the rest of the machine smile

Do your cars have two stroke engines? If so, use TC-W3.

Otherwise, use TT fuel and perhaps some PEA containing cleaner before oil changes if fuel quality comes into question.

You don't need any additives in a new car. Waste of money and time.
