    I haven't heard of many positive comments regarding pour in gas treatments.

    Your best option is resetting your ecu, cleaning your throttle body and MAF sensor. You can then feed Sea Foam through the engine followed by an oil change.

    I improved by 2mpg, I recently replaced all my plugs and wires and can get almost 75 more out of a tank of gas with the winter mixture.

    What's the reason for the treatment?

    I've used Chevron Techron Fuel Injector Cleaner with great results. I used to put it in with every oil change and it seemed to keep things running very well in my older trucks.

    I bought my Taco back in May of this year. I have since then upgraded to BF Goodrich 31 All Terrain's with the OEM rims painted in black. Since my Taco is a PreRunner, i wanted to see how i could save the most on Gas milage.:thumbsup:
