Can anyone tell if fuels with additives like Shell V Power and Chevron with Techron help to keep the fuel system cleaner? I was having a problem with my fuel gauge reading nearly half a tank and when I would hit a sharp curve my gas light would come on because I was really empty. I purchased a bottle of Techron to see if that would help. I was wondering if using these fuels like Shell V Power and Chevron with Techron would help.
I use Chevron or Shell. My car is a daily driver and work is 25 miles away. Two tanks ago I finally couldn't stomach the price for premium anymore and dropped down to the mid grade (89 octane). Even with the price being 10 cents per gallon less, it takes $56 to fill up... Geeeez. I haven't noticed any difference in performance (although I'm in heavy traffic all the time) and fuel economy is the same (again, I almost never get heavy into the pedal). I certainly don't want to drop to the regular fuel, but if the price of gas keeps rising 10 times faster than my paycheck, sooner or later.... you know the rest.
