It's a high molecular weight PIB lubricity and fuel spray modifier in something like a base neutral oil.

I use it in a xylene solution also containing MMT.

This is not a recommendation. You are on your own with anything I mentioned.

If you want to learn more do searches on MMT and xylene.

What good is memory, if it's filled with stuff which may not be true? Stuff that's not true could be dangerous. Now, reflexes, that's a different matter, those are worth keeping, they could save your neck. I still have those.

Anyway, I havn't put the cat in the refigerator yet. When I'm focused, little things like that are always possible.

The GTA additive for diesel is getting attention for emissions reduction and efficiency increases for those torquey, hard working engines. Got some possibilities with a major oil company, and the States of California and Texas. Nice data, and making headway against the NIH syndrome.

NIH = Not Invented Here.

I've used it for 2 winters as an additive for the poor winter gas and also for det compensation with the very cold air and high boost. Result was mediocre at the best. Didn't really feel much improvement. I've since stopped and switched to Torco, although that's still not as good as 100 octane race gas, if you can get it.

100 octane > Torco > GTA
