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

Oh really. So this engine stabilizer won't the engine?
