Can You Restore Lost Power To An Old Engine?

Last one. This is a video that tests if you can restore any lost power on an older engine... Perhaps Silkie's 3.2l V6?

Interesting.

Enjoyed the fuel comparison that followed too.

98 octane is the future.

I did the plugs and filters when I did the B-service on mine. I've not tried the cleaner in the tank (I know, Jeff, I know. Techron in the tank!!) nor have I replaced the HV cables. Maybe later in the year when I put her to bed.

Works for me! The added MPG I get makes the fuel as economical as 'cheap' fuel too!
