What do you say. To add...or not to add...? This is the question. I've never used the stuff and saw it sitting on a shelf. I got a little curios.
LOL, adding "mystery" oil is not preventive maintenance. If you want to have a clean engine & fuel system run Top Tier Gas(GM recommended) & Dexos labeled oil(GM Required).I can't agree with that wholly. Preventative maintenance keeps you from having more troubles than you should down the road.
All gas has additives/detergents, Top Teir gas just has more. Now instead of guessing and adding a mystery to your brand new car why not add a fuel system treatment/additive that is actually a proven detergent? There are lots but for pour in additives I would probably go with Chevron Techron Concentrate, considering this is a Top Teir fuel & the same additive they use in there gas. Honestly though why not just buy a Top Teir gas & get the correct level of detergents to begin with & not waste your money & run the risk of damaging your car?The gas I use does not mention any use of additives so I do my own.
This crap should not be added to the gas of any modern fuel injected car. There is not much mystery to what is in this stuff & yes it can harm your engine & cat. If one were to just google: "Marvel Mystery Oil Analysis" you would see this is not anything you want in your oil or fuel system. More than one person has submitted MMO to blackstone labs and others for analysis, it has shown to be very thin oil, food coloring, animal fat, solvents & some metals & has low flash point...... sounds like a great thing to add to your fuel!They only concern I have is maybe clogging the cat prematurely but not sure on that. I do believe adding MMO to gas will not do any harm at all to any engine interior components.
There is not one single member on this board who I have butt heads with more than spacedout, but he's 100% on the money with what he said about these additives.I can't agree with that wholly. Preventative maintenance keeps you from having more troubles than you should down the road.
Then why not just add Gumout fuel injector cleaner once a month like I have been doing for over a year now much safer than MMO IMHO.Well ive been running 4 ounces of MMO to 10 gallons of gas from day one. I now am at 20k with no known issues. The gas I use does not mention any use of additives so I do my own. I do agree with no need to run MMO in oil do to the high detergent already in Dexos 1 oil. They only concern I have is maybe clogging the cat prematurely but not sure on that. I do beleive adding MMO to gas will not do any harm at all to any engine interior components. Im really using MMO as a upper intake, injector, cylinder cleaner and a fuel pump lubricant.
