All engines are calibrated to run on fuel with a specific octane rating. If the octane is too low, fuel can ignite early, causing knocks and pings. In vehicles with knock sensors, lower octane gas can retard timing, reducing performance and fuel economy. Gumout® Octane Booster raises the octane level in gas to restore proper […]
Overtime, carburetors and choke valves can become clogged with gum, varnish and dirt, affecting performance. Gumout® Carb/Choke & Parts Cleaner quickly removes these deposits from the inside and outside of the carburetor to improve engine performance and fuel economy. It also effectively cleans all nonpainted metal parts and surfaces.
The carburetors and choke valves in small engines are especially prone to gum, varnish and dirt buildup because of less frequent use. Gumout® Small Engine Carb + Choke Cleaner quickly removes these deposits from the inside and outside of the carburetor to improve engine performance and fuel economy.
