Which do you use?

My mpg has dropped from 30--31 to 29 and I got new plugs and wires.

Or is that dang GM 3.8 v6 'bout worn out with 93,000 miles of Mobil 1?

I figure somebody knows more about that than I do!

Agree, Bg 44k. Expensive, but best on the market.

I believe 44k to be the best but you can only buy from a professional shop. Injectors maybe only part of the problem. With 93k, plugs and wires
didn't owe you anything and I am betting engine
isn't wore out yet. You may be on the right track but don't forget induction system.

Looked.up induction system on net. Got a.basic handle on that now. I have no check engine lights on. It has new air.filter. I has no.disability issues. Will leave rubber easily. So I'm leaning toward the oxygenated fuel which can rob me of 2% mpg. Since dealer.has mpg at.EPA sticker of 29 And if you allow 6/10 for the ox fuel then that is.close enough to 30 mpg that I'll not spend any more money due.to law of diminishing returns.

Thanks for everybody's input.

So now I'll spend 2 more weekends in Arkansas without thinking I might get left along the road in hill.billy territory.
