I bought 9 bottles of the gas treatment today at K-mart, pretty cheap prices, and I will use it every fill up till I run out and see if I notice anything in gas mileage or anything else. With my monthly oil changes and if this stuff works my engines interior should be clean enough to eat off of. I guarantee with my over-maintenance habbits my beast should make it to 350,000 miles easy, if I still have it then.

Hmmm....must be a Jersey thing with Techron. I'll be adding it to my tank when I travel to Florida(leaving this week) in the winter and Rhode Island in the summer

The only additive we have ever added to anything is marvel magic mystery oil that we add to the oil in the odd situations that we have a motor knocking, and it usually fixes that problem quickly.
Actually on the bottle of Techron it says you can use it every 1,000 miles so I don't think it'* a good thing to use certain fuel additives too often. Also, although I have never personally used Marvel Mystery Oil, you're about the fifth or sixth person that I've heard about that has good results with that additive.

Every auto parts store around here says the Chevron Techron is the best fuel injector cleaner around.

Throw the occasional tank of name brand premium in it and it will do about the same thing.
