Re: Chevron Techron - caution! (fwd)


     What is the year of that Zuffenhausen car. Was it built
     before the oil companies got smart(er) and started putting
     the detergents in the gas themselves? Did the builder install
     one of those self-updating manuals ;-)?

Well, we all know I promised Eric that I'd never sully the list by using the
name "P*rsche" again, but still I gotta comment that my owner's manual for
another German automobile (produced in Zuffenhausen, not Ingolstadt) says
specifically to use Techron from time to time to keep the injectors clean.
'Course, whadda they know...?
