    I have a bottle of Chevron Techron sitting on the shelf and was wondering if it's as recommended in the TSI as in the ATQ? Or, should I just pour it into the MPV and be done with it? AJ

    For those of us that like to use Techron for occassional preventative maintenance on the fuel system, my local AutoZone is running a buy one, get one free offer on the large bottles (treats up to 20 gallons). Might be a good time to check out your local store and stock up on a few bottles.

    I thought it was worth a posting. I have been a Techron fan for many years. Chevron Techron Concentrate Fuel System Cleaner (20 oz.) is buy one, get one free at Advance Auto. I just left my Derby, Conn. AA with a couple of bottles. The same special is on the AA website so this special must...

    I have the 4motion passat 2004. And I belive I have a 16GaL tank so is it better to get the 16OZ of Techron or the 20 OZ for the 20 GaL tank. I have heard people to tell me to put the 20 OZ but i am afraid i will hurt something since its for 20 GaL and i only have a 16 GaL tank.

    2001 V6 ATQ with 135K was running rough and the computer said I was getting 17MPG average down from last year's 24. Ran just one 20oz. bottle, no other modification, same gas/ gas station, same route and mileage to work and school. My mileage according to the computer is back up to 22 and...

    99 V6, 93K mileage... Added a bottle of Techron on Saturday, since I've been reading about carbon buildup, and thought it was a simple solution (been running Synthetic since I got her, and so far evrything looks pretty clean, including the PCV hoses). This morning, real cold here in NYC, got...

    I always run 91+ -- typically BP or QuikTrip (they're big in my area and on the Top Tier listing) -- but I've been thinking of running some Chevron Techron through to clean out my fuel system in my 1.8T. I've seen many good comments about it in the forums already but was wondering how often...

    Happy new year guys and gal, I am planning on buying techron but I am confused which one to buy, the 12oz or the 20oz? any advice for a b5.5 with 16.4gal tank?

    On my 2001 V6 manual, I added 20 oz of Techron when I got a full tank of gas, then drove 5 hours at 80 mph, using about half the tank. I think the throttle response has improved, with less hesitation off idle. Rev-matching when downshifting seems easier, because the revs are there when you...

    So I noticed the MPG on my 03 1.8t w/39k mi was getting a bit low, and it was feeling sluggish (further proven by my difficulty to keep up with my friend's Liberty on the tollway - I really had to work for it). I always use premium fuel (Shell V-Power for the last couple months), and the only...

    I just filled up my tank and I forgot to put in the Chevron fuel system cleaner. The instructions say to put it in BEFORE you fill the tank. Does it matter if I put it in after the tank is already full, or will I lose the affectiveness of it? Actually there's about 50 miles on the car since I...
