Fuel Additive

Post by Scoobi25 » Mon Jan 24, 2022 11:18 pm

Has anyone tried Gas Mac fuel additive by Bilt Hamber. If so what do you think. Designed to give protection from corrosion to fuel tank and all internal surfaces of the fuel system and also used to stabilise fuel. Its a strong claim so interested to know if anyone has tried it out.

I take all claims like this with a pinch of salt. There is no ingredients list on their website. I am not sure how you would validate their claims by using it. It certainly wouldn't protect outside-in corrosion, eg on the fuel filler neck. The spec refers only to protecting ferrous metals, so presumably it doesn't protect aluminium fuel system components.
