The land of USA-made Subies!
Saw this today on Gumout's website and rushed into AZ to buy every bottle they had. At the first AZ, the orange bottle was listed at $9.99 and the blue was already sold out. I showed the manager the website and he begrudgingly gave me the $2.99 price even though it still rang up at $9.99. He grumbled that he didn't care since it was the last bottle because he'd heard they were no longer going to carry this item (don't know if this is true). So I immediately drove to the next AZ over and cleaned out the shelves of another 13 bottles. They had 2 orange (marked $9.99 as well) but had no problem marking them down to the ad price. The 11 blue ones I got were priced correctly. This appears to be until the shelves are cleared!!

The Gumout Expert Series webpage is blank other than a lone description that these are for DIYers... no more product info so it seems the manager was correct.

Yes, I know the non-"Expert" is 3.97-4.97 at HD or WM, 2.99 still means every 4th bottle is essentially free.

Thanks. Just ordered half a dozen online for pickup at my local Autozone. Hopefully that will take care of any ad vs. in store price issues.

Did the same thing. Never tried it but at this price might as well!

How does the non-HM version compare to Techron? This chart shows the closest match to the non-expert series counterpart seems to have fuel stabilization properties and maybe some upper cylinder lubricant.
https://gumout.com/product-guide/

Does Techron do those also? Their MSDS compared seems to show mostly similar ingredients. Not sure how a upper cylinder lubricant can also clean, seems like an oxymoron.

Oh man, you mean the sealed bottle of manmade chemicals will expire? I wonder if I should have checked the Born On date before I cleared them out! Anybody want to buy 15 bottles of overaged fuel injector cleaner?

Not! smile

Just exactly how dirty is the fuel that they sell in your area?

Sounds like it's the same exact thing as the non expert version, per their FAQ (at least that's how I interpret it)

=======================================


37. Are the Expert Series the same as the above mentioned products, only marketed for Autozone? Or do they differ?

The Fuel system treatment is new to the Gumout family. It is the same formula as our fuel injector cleaner, but we’ve added an upper cylinder lubricant to provide wear and tear protection between the piston and cylinder wall. Expert Series Regane and All-in-One offer the same cleaning and conditioning benefits of their non-Expert Series counterparts. Also, within the Expert Series line, are two kits: Horsepower and Performance restoration. These are unique to the Expert Series line and offer specialized products to help get you the most out of every mile.

Well.... unless you pull plugs and use a borescope or injectors and test them on a flow bench, you'll never really know will you?

This is likely a 3-year stash or so. For $40 to help maintain my vehicles, it's a no-brainer. Plus it means I don't have to specifically go the 10 miles out of my way to get to the nearest Top Tier station every time. If you've ever looked at a map and find where I live, we're not exactly in "civilization". The nearest mall, Meijer's, Menards, etc.... are all a 45 minute drive away. $3 extra twice a year gives me a feel-good and that's what matters. Happy Thanksgiving! smile

Honestly, unless you know you have a problem I really believe this is a non-issue and there isn't any widespread basis for using the product. In all my years of driving and the many miles on my current vehicles, I've used a fuel system cleaner exactly once in my BMW. It had a rough idle and so I tried the cleaner which did nothing since the problem turned out to be a pushed back pin in a fuel injector connector. Other than that I've never bought nor used any of them and so far I haven't experienced any problems that would make me think I need to do so. The whole thing seems useless to me.

I've always avoided 'stocking up' on these type chemicals because of concern that they would lose effectiveness over time. Can any of the more enlightened members tell me if this is a legitimate concern?
This is a very good deal....
