My advice to you is to use a quality gas (octane rating does not matter in your case), run seafoam once every 30k or so, and change your oil on a regular basis.

Re: Sea-Foaming an Engine?

You could run a water injection system, although not being forced induction you'd have to be more careful about controlling the mist and not allowing water build-up. Essentially, it works by using a high pressure (like 100 psig) fogging mist that is sprayed into the intake, so that it turns into steam, which will travel into the combustion chamber and "steam clean" the components on its way.

On a forced induction application it has a better purpose though in that it removes some heat from the air in the conversion process, similar to an intercooler, but in a different way. but, that's another subject, lol.

It can be done on N/A application to cool the air a little and steam clean in the process, but like I said you have to be really careful when playing with water and imagine it would be best applied near the cylinders; whereas a FI application has it in the intake tract more or less.

I always pulled into a Mobile to fill up, but I just researched online and they are not listed as a top tier manufacturer. Odd.
