How does 10oz of Techron from Walmart treat 15gals, while a 12oz bottle (Autoparts) of the same stuff only treats 12 gallons?

What am I missing here?;gclsrc=aw.ds

the walmart labelling is wrong or old stock.

The current product page says the marketting should mstch 1oz treats 1gallon of fuel. i.e. 10oz for 10gallons.

Of course treatment strength is completely arbitrary, if 10oz of product is run through whether its diluted with 10gal or 15gal, does it make a difference in result.

Plus if you are the person that buys techron likely you already use toptier fuel, so theres nothing to cleanup, so who will complain.

Advance Auto Parts/Car Quest has the new 32oz bottles of Techron(Complete Fuel System Cleaner) for ~$12.99. A good price IMO!

My tank holds 16 gallons but I always buy the size for "up to 20 gallons". I figure a minor shock treatment once a year can't hurt. To date it has not after 8 years in a row.

+1 I only buy it in that size now. If you watch ads you can grab it between $8.99 and $9.99. I bought 2 bottles in October from Auto Zone for $8.99 a bottle.
