    “Many months”... perhaps consider Sta-bil instead.

    Personally, I use Techron, but only because I routinely run Chevron gas. Don’t know of anything else.

    Both Techron and Sta-bil seem to work. The Testarossa sat for 10yrs+ with Sta-bil and the gas was drained and looked pretty good. The car ran fine with fresh fuel. The FI was not gummed up at all.

    I prefer using Sunoco 93 octane non-ethanol fuel with a ratio of Sea Foam. The additive is a good product for keeping FI lines clean and it also acts as a fuel stabilizer.

    91 octane with ethanol is the best we can do in Nevada.

    87 octane can be had without ethanol... but no higher octane.

    Yet another reason to move to Texas!

    You guys in Texas better screw things up pretty quickly if you don’t want to be swamped with newcomers!

    I used Liqui Moly products in my BMW M3 and had great results. I used both their oil and additives in that car.
    In my Testarossa, Red Line oils, Sunoco non-ethanol fuel and Sea Foam fuel additive. That being said, I think any high quality brand of fluids and fuel will be just fine.

    Sea-Foam is quite reliable.

    I just did the fuel pumps and seals on the 512 TR
    my car has 110K on it
    I run Techron
    on another note if you are not smelling fuel vapors when your tank is fuel
    you need to replace the units that hold the pumps they end up cracking
    I have pictures if anyone wants them
    my tanks were clean when I pulled them
    also I run non ethanol fuel as often as I can

    tanks were pristine
    always stored the car after a drive tanks full and used non ethanol fuel when I could
    its when you don't drive the car the gunk up
