More catalyst-safe (those things are expensive) is a PEA based cleaner, and using a double or triple dose of that wouldn't foul the plugs like all this MMO did.
MMO is known to have solvents, so it should remove some gum or varnish at least.

enough of the personal insults, lest some get a vacation.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Was their any indication of severe detonation? That much MMO would cause a significant decrease in octane of the resulting mix vs. pump fuel. There was an aviation accident with an ag plane where, if I remember correctly, the operator put enough MMO for the fill up into one tank which when selected, produced the expected results.

I did not feel or hear any pinging/knocking/detonation. Just misfire after more than 5 minutes of idle, or at any load over 1700rpm.
*[Redline starts somewhere around 4500rpm, so staying below 1700rpm still produced enough torque to keep the Tahoe moving up to highway speeds.]*

The misfires under load made it feel like the engine was only running on 4 cylinders, and the fact that 4 of the spark plugs were dry-ish and other 4 were pretty wet tells me that this theory may be correct.

Interesting...wonder what would cause only 4 cylinders to be firing.

Considering that the accepted ratio of MMO to gas is approximately 4oz MMO per 10 gallons of gas, for a 30 gallon tank, 12 ounces would have been the correct amount to add.. And he added more than 10 times as much.. I'd say it IS a lot for that 30-gal tank. WAY too much. I'm not at all surprised that he had so many problems. That amount of MMO was enough to treat 320 gallons!

Yes I know the correct ratio as I have been following it for years since I started to understand the combustion engine. But since this truck has the "bulletproof" Small Block 350 - I decided to try this overdose.

As explained above - It ran on 4 cylinders due to the fact that the other 4 were too soaked in MMO/gas to create a spark at any type of load.

MMO works wonders in small engines. I don’t think I’d use this quantity in a large gas engine. I run 4 oz per 5 gallons in small engines I never have those ethanol issues.

I suspect the O2 and knock sensors were feeding erroneous data to the computer and because of this out-of-bounds data it really confused control of the spark timing and injector pulse widths.

As another poster mentioned, you may want to change oil and filter pronto.
