IMO Techron probably has the most science behind it.

I have used Star Tron in my bike with noticeable results. I gained an extra 1mpg and got rid of all hesitation in throttle response. I have not used it in anything else. I prefer other stuff for my cages.

I have heard nothing but good out of seafoam but Ive also heard that ANY additive is bad on a fuel system. I have found two gas stations here that sell ethanol free fuel. I have been running this for the last 4-5 tanks and seems to have a little better get-up to it. I also have a little tick to it and that has gone away also. I am trying to figure out this Diablo tuner and with it I can retard or advance the valve tick.

As far as engine/gears being seized, I use PB Blaster. Spray it down thru the spark plug holes and let it sit for an hour or two. The stuff will eat thru a foam cup so you know it has good penetrating properties.

Im a lil out there as where I work on large diesel engines but instead of using starting fluid, try using brake clean. It still contains an "ether" like ingredient but isnt as harsh on valves. I spray thru the air cleaner but i guess you could use the throttle body or carb.

Lowriders are for guys who can't get it up!

Ethanol free gasoline will provide more get up and go than the E10 crap. If you weigh 200 pounds and take a 20 pound crap you'd get up and go a little better too. As far as additives being harder on the fuel system, i can't see how due to that most of the ingredients are already present in gasoline and with proper dosage the additive to fuel ratio really isn't that great. Especailly when broken down by ingredient. Admittedly there are some extra solvents thrown into the mix but IIRC i have used gasoline as a solvent many times. Just a guess but i would actually think that since they add more of the same (petroleum distillate), it might actually help some with the E10 dilemma we face. Not much but some. The additives i would try to steer clear of while using E10 are the ones with Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) especially for storage. E10 is 10% alcohol, we get less efficiency with alcohol, why add more? Some may say its a drying agent, well, again, you already have 10% alcohol, why add more? If your running 100% gas than sure why not, give it a shot. Alcohol is hygroscopic in nature so it actually pulls moisture into itself. None of this is to say that any additive is not needed. Its an unfortunate truth that a majority of our fuels in this country are substandard IMO. So there is a call for these products. As you can see so far they vary in some ways and are common in others. Naphtha (white gas/ Coleman Fuel) being the most common.

Super job BT! After reading the story of prolong, I think I'll try it. I can say this about Sea Foam, my front tank would not register. One dose of SF and it has worked ever since. Hey guys, don't forget about your mowers and equipment. Non ethanol is best for older mowers, weedeaters and such. Food for fuel, what a waste. Hey BT, I can't think of it, but there is one that is suppose to have Teflon in it. Might be one you can add.

1993 F150 XLT, 5.8 with E40D, Tow and Handling Package. Fully loaded from factory as truck was special order. Mods: Extang Snap on bed cover. 2" drop in rear, Six Liter Tuneup, NOS 66-72 Ford Air Foil Antenna, Planet Auto Red Ford Oval (grille). Diamond Clear Headlight Package, Bumper Guards, F350 Brake Conversion, Slotted/Drilled Front Rotors, 3 row alum radiator with Mk VIII elec fan. and much more to come!

I've heard Startron is supposed to break down the Ethanol in regular gas.
