Pri G Gasoline Treatment

Has or does anyone use Pri G to treat their gas? A friend was telling me about it and how good the stuff supposedly is. I have my preference on gas treatment, but was just curious.

SeaFoam Fuel Treatment has worked well for us. Haven't seen Pri G on the shelves yet.

Some of the products out there are too much solvent - not enough oil... i.e. b-12 chemtool - be careful with b-12 way too much solvent..

main ingredient is mineral spirits for pri g

Well, that being said, it would probably be pretty good for an engine that has not run in a while, ie a few years, just to get things going again. But if you have a great running engine, then go with something that provides more oil. That helps to explain some of the comments I have read about it.

I would do some more reading on the heavy solvent based cleaners. Some of the other boards heeded caution on those.

You may want to inspect the inside the rocker cover to see if there's any sludge build up. I am not a big fan of mineral spirit on seals, o rings... etc...
