I purchase (12) Amsoil P.I. Performance Improver Gasoline Additive at a cost of $50 on Facebook Maketplace. It was impulse buy when I saw on my phone that the Amsoil P.I retails for $13.85. I haven't research it and is it any good?

That's a steal. The product is comparable to Techron.

Any PEA product at that price is probably worth taking. Is Amsoil? Know Gumout, Techron and Redline are.

While I agree with both above, if OP decides to re-sell them at anything over $5 each, he's making money.
...that's probably something I'd do, but then again I wouldn't need 12 bottles of something I can get by simply running a better fuel.

So the OP doesn't think I'm being holier than thou, I purchased a 12-pack of Redline SI-1 for almost $70 back in 2011.


I did a couple of full doses on my '08 STI, then switched to maintenance doses. Probably 100% a waste of money, and especially time.

While someone can get better (or more) detergents by switching to a better brand of gasoline, the detergent dosage you get in pump gas is lower than the detergent dosage you get by using the bottled detergent additive.
