    Welcome to the forum.......Are you comparing TCW3 specific additive packs? I think you will find most of the answers to your questions in the differences between 2cycle oil and TCW3 oil. We utilize TCW3...it is ashless and does not have the friction modifiers.

    Ok
    Im from australia and thought about giving this a go with the quality of fuel etc.

    Now you say 1oz to 5 gal

    Over here it works out to be 29.5ml of oil to 18.9 litres of fuel

    Would rounding 30ml of oil to 20 litres of fuel (15ml / 10L) be ok or will the few ml's less of oil have fewer effects.

    Mate - it's not too critical. I have doing this for over 12 months. I simply add 125 mls every time I fill up the car (approx 55 - 60 litres).

    So long as its rated TCW3 (ie ashless) any brand will do. I've found that it has smoothed the idle a little, improved starting & dropped fuel consumption marginally. I've done about 8,000 k's since using this formula & plan on pulling the plugs in about 2,000k's for a look see.

    My riding lawn mower is using less gas too.
    Using the TC-W3 plus two ounces of stabil to five gallons.
    Use stabil in all my small engines year round.

    Thumbs up

    Started doing the TCW-3 (Wallyworld) 4 tankfuls ago. I am impressed with the results. 1oz per 5 gals. Car starts in 1/2 second and idles/runs smoother than it ever has. The most impressive thing is the increase in fuel mileage. On the second tankful, I noticed that I had gone 260 miles and still had a 1/4 tank. 3+ mpg improvement. BTW the car is a 2002 Z-28 M6 with 50K miles on the clock.
    Tried the same scenario on my 2006 Cadillac SRX 3.6 ltr V-6. Took it on a 1K trip this week to Sedona,AZ. Car starts quicker and idles smoother and picked up 2 mpg over what it usually does. Results not as dramatic as with the LS-1 but I am gonna keep doing it!

    I get a lot of criticism for calling gasoline "dry" by internet experts...clueless keyboard warriors.....much of the benefits derived from this exercise is directly due the cleaning/lubrication properties (of the TCW3) and its effects on the top end and ring pack.
    Makes for a more efficient burn with higher compression. Yes we have documented higher compression already.
    Thank you for sharing BowTie Guy!

    Hey,Sarge,
    You may consider making this thread a sticky on the Camaro side. Not everybody reads the GTO stuff.

    Isn't adding this TCW3 kinda like using a different octane rating?

    At one ounce of TC-W3 to 640 ounces of gasoline I don't think your engine will notice it.

    It does not affect the octane rating, only the lubrication and cleaning aspects of the gasoline

    Here's the poop: As specified by state law, reformulated winter gas contains any number of lighter, lower-boiling-point hydrocarbons (butane, propane, etc.) that just so happen to have an excellent octane value. Added to this may be any number of oxygen-bearing ether compounds (MTBE, ETBE, ethanol) that improve emissions and also have a relatively high octane blending value.

    So what's all the bad hype for? Price, for one thing "It's actually more expensive to make reformulated winter gas than normal, summer fuel, ' says Thomas Hart. Lower fuel economy is another concern.

    "The oxygen-bearing compounds displace fuel components, so it takes more fuel to get the job done. Normal gasoline has a stoichiometric ratio of 14.7:1, reformulated winter fuel runs between 14.3 and 14.4

    Update from earlier reply.

    Two of my vehicles have a smoother idle and get better mileage. My third vehicle runs smoother but I cannot get better mileage with it. I guess differences with injection type, driving habits, etc. I do feel that overall I have found improvements. After mowing season is over, I am going to tear down mower and check the back of the valves for deposits.

    Haven't seen it mentioned but I have a suspicion that the catalytic converters won't be too fond of getting the additional oil.

    At such a dilute ratio its not hard to believe that durring the combustion when the add-packs get activated, there is hardly nothing left over of the oil

    After millions of miles no reports of any codes thrown and no cat issues. The ratio is not enough to have any effect on cats as the fuel/oil mix is totally burned in the combustion chamber. It is such a diluted mix...
