    How do you keep your ws6 healthy?

    I do all of the following every so often to keep her in good shape;

    -Do the entire sea foam treatment
    -Use Lucas products to clean my fuel tank
    -wax the paint every few months
    -use lotion on my leather interior every few months
    -Keep the tire pressure around 36 psi
    -use full-synthetic oil, and change that every 5-7k miles

    Cause after a long night of burnouts and revs, she needs a little something to stay healthy

    She gets a routine once over in the engine bay and from underneath to ensure that everything is tight, checked to ensure that there are no interference issues (lines, wires, exhaust, etc...), fluids are checked and topped off, TC-W3 is used in the fuel tank, and she is kept clean inside and out with a semi-annual application of leather conditioner to the seats.

I always was told never add anything to your fuel tank other than fuel especially in newer vehicles

    TCW3 regularly every fillup, oil change every 6k miles, check all the fluids under the hood every couple days, washed minimum twice a month as i daily it, and i give her a full detail every few months when i find a free day.

    Is TCW3 the best thing to use for a fuel treatment?

    I've heard nothing but good about it. My friend with an 03 mach 1 said it gave him a better idle and smoother ride. I didn't notice anything too different but that's only because my car is at 50k miles, but dude for the price and what it does, it's definitely worth it!

    It's not a typical fuel treatment -- TC-W3 is a 2 stroke oil that you can buy just about anywhere. Add 1 oz. of oil to every 5 gallons of fuel. The oil helps offset the dryness of ethanol blended gasoline and has additional cleaning properties that work in the fuel system and combustion chamber. We have a lengthy thread on here with all sorts of details in it. As an added benefit, most users experience at least a 1-2 mpg increase with regular use.

    Bg44k once a year right before the track opens up, mobil 1 full synthetic every 3k, car is washed probably 2 times a week, minimum 3 times a month (black cars an Colorado suck), full interior detail at least once a month, full detail semi annually, clean underneath at least 2 times a year. And at least two mods every year.
