    I was wondering I am trying to keep my fuel system clean. Is it ok to use BG fluid in my gas tank to do this? What else do I need to do to clean the system?

    Also, BG has a fluid to mix with your engine oil. Do you think this is safe to use? Any suggestions?


    Thanks

    and if you want to get some STP octane booster.... It helps with the octane and cleans about 5% of the crud out of your engine per bottle.


    I use it all the time. Works great. 1 bottle lasts for 10 fuel ups (i think thats what the bottle says)
