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?

Not if your car doesn't need it

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.

If in retail it costs 13.85 and you got it on Facebook for 50 dollars than yeah you got a bad deal, and was ripped off by 50 dollars minus 13.85
