Re: like

It rates the whole thread. As the votes come in I think it averages them out. So if I gave this one 5 stars and someone else gave it one, I beleave it would split the difference.

Re: failed sealer gas tank cleaner, alcohol ?

Unless it's liquid, what ever you put in has to get over under and around the baffles and back out that little hole the gas get put in thru or out the gas gauge hole.

Re: Analyze this . . .

I don't understand why all this fuss about what the plugs look like in 30 miles. Put a set in and drive it. Unless it starts to miss don't mess with them. Put some real miles on them.
