He taped it a day early, said he'd be too hung over to do it on the first! Once again, the straight 87 E10 preformed as good as anything, after a whole year!

I watched the video earlier today. He put the k100 additive back in. It wouldn't start without help. It won't last long. I thought the engine sitting outside was to be started on Jan 1st 2021?

I always use Stabil, especially over the winter, but Taryl's experiment makes me think he is correct that all the additive stuff is "snake oil". I'll continue using Seafoam if something is running a little rough.

That's what I do, no addatives unless and engine is running less than perfect, then some Seafoam, and it usually fixes it. I tried some
Stabil once, after 6 months of storage engine wouldn't start without priming, carb had Jell-o like substance in it.

I like my little "Teddy Bears" and they will always be with me.....sleep better at night. I have proven on several occasions, just running experiments to
answer the question, that teddy bears work. Wink!

I tried Startron years ago when it first came out. Noticed recently it is still being sold, same original container in the local WWs. My definition of a quality product is that it survives the test of time.....well I guess it's a quality product by that definition.

Had a problem understanding the "enzymes" thing.....laundry detergents were using the enzyme theme at the time.....course that was about the time Pack Man made the entertainment scene and recalling the Pack Man was the enzyme gobbling the bad guys in their commercials. Never determined if it did anything different for me from other types of snake oils.

That the guy with the fake redneck teef? I don't know how anyone can stand to watch that guy! Drop the play acting and do it straight for goodness sake! He might have some good information but the stupidity involved makes it impossible to watch.

To each their own I guess.
