Default Oil/Gas Treatment? Which is most effective?

Just wondering which of these will help an 01' Camry CE and an 91' Previa out the most:

Techron Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner
Rislone Engine Treatment
STP Fuel Injection and Carburetor Treatment
Super Tech Fuel Injection and Carburetor Cleaner
Super Tech Fuel Injection and Carburetor Cleaner (Super Concentrated)
STP Octane Booster (Barely Street Legal = from a sticket on the bottle)
Super Tech Gas Treatment
No Leak Engine Oil Treatment
Gumout Fuel Injection Cleaner
Prestone Belt Dressing
Prestone Fuel Injector Cleaner
Marvel's Mystery Oil

I already bought all these (cause im crazy). Which ones are best and most effectivE?

As I go to an automotive institute for higher learning, I recommend only, if only, you really feel as if you must put something in your engine, a top engine cleaner. Whatever the brand may be it should also say "top engine cleaner". Gas companies already put additives in the fuel that all those other things you bought do, so they're junk. YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT ANY THING THAT SAYS IT WILL STOP LEAKS INTO ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR. Belt dressings just mask the fact that you need to replace the belt, the dressing WILL NOT fix the problem. I think I just about covered all those products. Any other questions just ask.

NOS makes an octane booster and I have used it in my dad's truck right before I changed the spark plugs and wires. I saw a pretty good difference after that, of course by changing the plugs but, it was beyond the average change with the octane booster. I have also used "SeaFoam" and it's the best, some way we got water in the fuel, thanks to Chevron, we put in a bottle of SeaFoam and I think it helped the truck to not 'foul' a spark plug.

Now for diesel, Amsoil Diesel Treatment is the best, I used to use it in my truck....

Well "no leak" deals usually make seals swell to take the space of the leaking area which means it can also block passages from receiving as much fluid as it should. MMO and super tech are just additives that are already in your pump gas. As for octane boosters, they're really only for engines that need higher octane than premium. You can actually run the risk of serious engine damage by adding octine boost. Would you? I'd certainly just buy the proper gas from the pump.

Honestly, the best treatment for your engine is water through a vacuum line in the top of the engine controlled by a line clamp. This should only be done under the supervision of someone that knows what they're doing. This will break away carbon build up than in fuel additives cannot reach.

Yes I have heard of sea foam and the wonders. same the MMO... well could yall teach me the tuen up operations for cars? I have never changed my spark plugs, distributor cap (what is this?), spark plug wires... I need to know ANY tune up operation for both of these cars. Evenn the best coolant available. I am currently running all these fluids (one by one).

Oh yes, do yall know any UPGRADES for looks and performance? I really want to start getting more torque and HP. (any of yall know how to gain HP and torque? not recover, just gain)

The octane booster only raises the level of octane in the gas, which is a complete rip off because you could have just gotten 91 octane gas instead of 87.

I've used seafoam a number of times, it's the best stuff IMO. I mainly use it through the brake booster line, and in conjunction with TB cleaner it made my old car run much better.

Seafom restores lost HP or gains ? And no one has answered my question about an Complete tuneup . I can buy anything for the tuneup, plugs, everything. I will go deep insiide the engine if I have to. I have probably all the necessary tools already.

what about a complete tune-up? just buy one of those hayne's manuals from advanced auto parts whatever auto store you shop at and it will tell you how to "tune-up" your vehicleand what you need.

As far as gaining HP: that all depends on how much you want to gain.

For a complete Tune Up

Plugs & Plug wires
Replace the distributor or Coil packs(which can be expensive)
air filter
fuel filter
clean out the radiator('pull the plug' & use a water hose and Blue Wolf degreaser)
Check catalytic converter for clogging(if so, replace it)


For gaining HP, don't use higher octane fuel it doesn't burn any better unless, it is significantly higher than the type you usually use. Like I use 89 most of the time, so I used 93 and put in the NOS octane booster, I had I think around 98-100 octane.

If you want to add power, add a Cold Air Intake and check to see if your car has a chip tuner for it on the market.
