Should I Use Fuel Additives?

You’ve probably heard people talking about fuel additives from time to time. These mysterious substances are often advertised as improving the performance of your vehicle, probably by cleaning out your engine so that it runs like new once again. But are these additives all they’re cracked up to be, or is it a big batch of snake motor oil?

In truth, if you’re taking proper care of your engine, you probably aren’t going to benefit from any fuel additives. Many of the gasolines you’re pumping into your car are likely to be filled with additives already, and they’re not doing all that much for you unless your car hasn’t been properly maintained for several years. If this is the case, consider bringing your vehicle in to our Seattle auto body shop to have it tuned up.
