Protection Tip: Wear safety glasses at all times when working on your car. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when needed, for instance latex gloves or closed toe shoes.

1. To examine your fuel system, drive your car to see how it performs. Your car should drive effortlessly, accelerate with ease, and go up and down through the speed limits with no trouble. The mileage on your car and the condition of the engine will also have an impact on how the car drives.

2. If you have a clear fuel filter, examine the color of the fuel. If the fuel is dark, the fuel system needs to be flushed.

3.Open the fuel fill cap and make an effort to smell the fuel. If the level is short, remove the Fuel Filter (see directions for fuel filter replacing) and smell the fuel. If the fuel smells like paint, the fuel is corrupt.

4. You might also want to check the condition of the fuel lines and fuel tank. If you notice that fuel lines are broken; (allowing water/condensation to enter the fuel lines) or that the fuel tank is corroded or has cracks, you will want to replace these parts.

5.For simple cleaning, add a fuel system additive to your fuel tank and top off your fuel level with new gas according to instructions on fuel system additive.

6.Test drive your car to check for enhancement. We vouch for test driving on normal streets, freeways, accelerating using full throttle, and under regular driving conditions.

7. If you are still perceiving the same symptoms as before the fuel additive, further examination of your fuel system and drive train is desirable.
