Next time you get your oil changed add some Lucas Engine Oil Stablizer to the oil.

I did many times but doesn't make a difference

Sorry. .not in engine oil.

I thought in gas tank. I will do it. Thank you

I use 0w 20 synthetic Mobil one oil. Is better to use 5w 20 or 0w 30 oil instead of using Engine stabilizer? Please advise
