Default lucas gas treatment

I started using the Lucas gas treatment last year in all my vehicles and tractors, it works as good if not better than the other more expensive options.

Most fuel system cleaners will work
Berryman's b-12 Chemtool at Walmart works too....

purchase the large Lucas bottle for 10 bux for 100 gallons

cheaper that way but you have to measure it yourself

I buy the big bottle of Lucas and I use the little Lucas bottle as a measuring and pouring device, I wish Chevron came in bigger bulk bottles but they would probably want 100 dollars for a big bottle
