Q: Oil/ fuel staballizer/ injector cleaners...

What kind of oil stabalizers do you guys like to use? Or fuel staballizers and injector cleaners? What's the best? Or do you have reason that you DO NOT recommend any of these things?.

Assuming your talking about "pump gas" I wouldnt recommend anything in the oil but oil. There is evidence that the newer "SM rated oils benefit from a ZDDP/Moly additive like those from Torco, but pretty much all the additives you might find off the shelf at your parts store do little if anything of benefit. I would simply use a higher quality oil- like ENEOS, Redline, or Torco. I no longer recommend Mobil1, even if the factory does

For fuel the only injector cleaners I have had direct contact with are 44K, Redline SI1, and the Chevron with Techron cleaners, and they all work as intended. For a long time the only fuel injector cleaner recommended by Porsche was the Chevron with Techron, and I used it for a number of years with good luck. I have also used a lot of the Redline SI1, and it does a good job as well. In "normal" street cars like my BMW I generally run a 1/4 of the Chevron with Techron bottle per tank of fuel until the bottle is gone about every 15-20k miles. For the Evo I will simply run a tank of fuel with Redline S1 added and low boost every 15K miles.
Also, some octane boosters DO work, but are a hassle and expense I dont bother with.

Thx for the response Dwalker......(yes, I'm talkin' 'bout pump gas). I'm just curious, I gotta lot of people tellin' me different stuff, but none of them own an Evo. So, I thought that some of you other Evo owners would REALLY know whatsup. I'm surprised that Dwalker is the only one to respond thus far, i think it's a valid Q, pardon my ignorance if any of you think it's a dumb Q. Let me be dumb, but don't let me do something dumb to my car, for my cars sake.
