    I'm still using up the oil I bought, but I have not bothered to post anything because no one seems to care.

    Tcw3

    Im interested,,on new things that anyone has noticed after a long time of use of tcw 3. I just got started, with 2000 miles, mileage is somewhat better, but one day I carry 3000 pounds of cargo, the next day one pound, its up and down, so Im getting a 90 day agenda on mileage, performance in acceleration, under loaded conditions, stop and go and interstate driving. I hoping the TCW3 will lower my maintenance cost somehow and mostly create an engine life of 700,000 miles on my 318 dodge throttle body engine or longer.

    Tcw-3

    Forgot to mention my engine warning lite has been on forever and ever, even after a tune up and resetting the thing at the dealership which I dont go there anymore. but since I have been using TCW3 for a few tanks, this lite has gone off and stayed off, I hve no clue why, it just went off. Well thats it so far, still looking for a mileage increase to 17 mpg from 15.5, crossing my fingers.

    That's why I stopped posting...0....interest.I'm still using it, but my trips up north will be ending here shortly so...once the oil I bought is gone....that is the end for me. I really cannot say anything changed for sure, and if it did it was marginal as in not worth the effort.

    tcw3

    At least u responded,,yea it is sort of trouble,,I filled up an MMO bottle and measure out 4 oz at a time. I will use up my gallon, will take a while, by then in another month, the gallon of tcw3 will be gone and I should have a better feel for this 2 cycle thing. I run about 1500 miles a week, so time will tell, thanks again,,sky:

    If you read my previous posts, I really thought I had something going.So I tried less oil more oil and nothing really changed. I filled up my truck which has a really sick 100,000 plus mile engine in it and a 31gallon gas tank.Just for kicks I dumped 6oz of the oil in it. I do think it changed the startup time,after sitting for a week at a time, but again I have nothing to base it on as the motor is so bad I only move the truck on street sweeping day.No long trips or anything like that.I might try the oil in my lawn mower to see if that makes any difference.

    i have been using it in pretty much everything till about 3 weeks ago..... not that it wasn't working, i have been moving.....

    all my gas mileage went to crap when we started moving, all the back and forth trips, now that i'm done moving, i got all my little bottles of sta-bill (little 4oz bottles) filled for the next fill up on the vehicles.

    i did fill up today after a solid week of only driving to work and back, and my mileage was down slightly, but i believe this is due to the ethanol blend that all the stations started using. but before the move i was using ethenol blend and the tcw3, and getting better results than with just straight ethanol.

    tcw3

    Well at least it started easier, u never know, drive the truck 10 miles or so if it will do it,,maybe it come back to life some. Anyway I'm sort of bored with other additives, I still us MMO some and Sta bil mix for those times I get water in the tank, but the tcw3 is doing OK, a mechanic said he thought I had a burnt valve in one cylinder, because when he took the plug out the porcelain part of the plug was blown off and the tip was straight up, it has run rough at idle for a long time,,the tcw3 seems to help it.

    Been using the TCW3 mixture in my 4 cars for the past 5 months or so, and all vehicles run much smoother, idle smoother and seem to get better mileage...I giess it gives me peace of mind knowing that my fuel system is getting lubericated knowing that the ethanol 10 percent is added to gasoline now....So I intend to keep using it for a long time as I know it helps my engines......

    If I have time this weekend I will give it a try.I made a couple of the trips up north in my 08 Cobalt and it made no difference whatsoever. And like I said in the Camaro I thought I really had something,but looking back on some receipts for a trip I took up and back before I started using the oil mix,and the mileage was very close to the same as using the oil. Since the route was always exactly the same and for the most part no traffic I was just disappointed. Now if it was as good as others had posted....that would be a different story. In fact if It made it to the magic 27mpg, that would have been "PFM".If it does indeed work for anybody else....believe me I am way happy for them.

    Using Wal-Mart TCW3

    I have been using the Wal-Mart version of TCW3 marine oil in all my vehicles for several months now. Although I have not scientifically checked mileage, I can say that they are all running smoother and the "Lie-O-Meter" in my wifes 2000 Town Car is reading a lot higher "Miles-to-Go" number than before.

    I'm also using it in my old '65 Panhead Harley, and it is definitely running better.

    For my next experiment, I'm gonna run some Auto-RX in my Dodge Dakota 318 V-8 and then go with the TCW3 afterward.

    Stay tuned,

    Rip

    I was also using the Walmart stuff,and perhaps its not at the level of other products. In either case I still have a gallon and a some to burn up so I will start trying it on other things. Who knows.No matter what the moneys already spent.

    our minivan has dropped significantly in mpg since i stopped the tcw3. the last few weeks it's been running 21.5-22mpg, and before i was seeing in the 24-25 range. i just started adding it again to see what the outcome is this week.

    Have been using the Wal-Mart brand in two cars for the past year. Mileage is better in both and they both run smoother. Pulled a spark plug on one, and it was very clean. I feel the results have been worth the effort in my cars.

    I guess before I pack the Camaro up I will pull a plug and see if what you guys are saying is true. Not that the plugs were every that dirty,but I bought the car with 66xxx and changed them shortly before I had to have the car smogged.They should be spotless if what your saying is true.
