Had a homer moment. It was a warm day last week and the cars needed it, so I ended up doing a OCI on mine and the wifes car....
In hindsight, I would have ran some FSC prior....

I have stopped doing maint. dosages of FSC, LC, etc a looooong time ago. Generally just run a bottle before a OCI.

What ill effects if any will I have if I run a bottle on a fresh oil change

Should be, I would have RUN some FSC. Proper English isn't that difficult.

Does it really bother you that much that you had to make this unnecessary post? bop

I don't know what an FSC is, how it makes an engine run or ran. Irregardless, I would skip it and wait until the next time.

Seriously, YOU are nitpicking the verb tenses of other posters here?
That would make a cow laugh, as my dairy farmer cousin would say.

Keep it up and you'll have a vacation from this board. I'm serious.

I wouldn't worry too much about it - maybe if you drive a car known for fuel dilution there might be some cause for concern depending on how the FSC is formulated. If it's a good PEA-based one like Techron, SI-1 or Gumout's Regaine series or something that's mostly stoddard solvent/kerosene I wouldn't lose sleep.

Now, if we're talking strong solvent-based like B-12 Chemtool then it's a good idea to use that before an oil change. Most of the solvent should flash off from the oil but I don't like leaving circulating around for too long.
