Dustin, Brett is right!! i am the old timer Phantom was talking about. i bought my car(at a young age) new in '78 and still drive it every day. i have always used auto xsmn fluid to keep the injectors and engine clean. i have dyno sheets to prove that performance has remained near new levels. no need for expensive mystery additives, although i also use DWG oil treatment to keep compression healthy. my engine has 253,000 trouble-free miles!!
