      Soooooo..... pour Coca-Cola in the gas tank to clean the carbon build up? If a person can’t afford a new Mass Air Flow sensor, disconnect it? Make sure you get a can of air to dust / clean your air filter?! 👍👽✈️✈️⚗️⚗️🌬🌬💨💨🌫🌫🌨🌨⛈⛈🌎🌏🌍🚫

              Question of proper octane fuel. I have a '67 Rolls Royce and it calls for 100 octane minimum. The only only fuel I can get that's that high is dyed racing fuel (112 I think) and technically illegal to drive on the road. Thoughts?

                                          My truck would crank fine but wouldnt start, After I check all the censors and the battery died i took the battery to get charged, it was dead. After i putted the new battery it worked just fine.

                                            Actually, the very best way to get better gas mileage, aside from all of those tips from Scotty, is to drive smoothly without any sudden accelerations, put the car in ECO mode (if it has one), and reduce your speed on the highway (really going 55 mph is considerably more economical than going 65 mph simply because of higher wind resistance). Now if, like me, you've got a twin-turbo V6 engine putting out 365 hp in a GT sport car, you don't want to do any of those things I've mentioned and actually enjoy driving that car ! Anyway, I was prepared for a higher fuel consumption when I got it and I take it like a man.

                                                                  I’m no mechanic and don’t know anything about engines except for what I’ve been told. I was told that most fuel injection/ carb cleaners are just octane boosters. Higher octane gas burns hotter and cleaner so it can clean those things. So what I was told to do was like once a month or every like 5-6 fill ups to use the higher octane gas to help clean things out. So I’ve been doing that for years. Is it a waste of my money ? Is that even true at all ? Sometimes I use those cleaners instead. My truck now is only like 7-8 months old. So I don’t notice much of anything. But I don’t fill when empty. I was told to fill at 1/4 tank top so you always have gas in the system and I guess it’s better for the car then running it to empty. Is any of this worth it ?
