You may lack the skills and knowledge to inspect your vehicle’s catalytic converter. Your fuel pump may be similarly outside your comfort zone.

As a further insult, the additives are also there to clog and prevent the use of the Pogue-style carburetors, designed to get 200-300 mpg.

Routine tire rotations are important in order to prevent excess tread wear from developing on your front wheels. The majority of vehicles today are front-wheel drive. That means most of the pressure during operation is placed on the front wheels, causing the treads to suffer wear more quickly than those in the rear.
