    Well it's been a while but the folks at ASL Camguard are finally releasing their automotive version. The differences from the aircraft-biased product are addition of friction modifiers that are claimed to reduce engine wear by 80%.

    As of yet there is no info on the Camguard web site about Auto Camguard (the site has been slow to be updated), but those who contact the primary distributor (who is the primary sponsoring developer) can order it. The chemist who developed it is Ed Kollin (former head chemist of Exxon) and there is a video there explaining the product.

    I'm just posting the info folks. ;)

    I have a 2002 Honda Accord 6 cyl and its in Florida. I've heard that in hot areas you should try to keep a full tank of gas to prevent condensation in the fuel tank. It this a myth or truth? I just filled it up and noticed an engine knocking at acceleration. Will a fuel additive help with this by chance? I love this forum. It's always been a great help. Thanks!

    With all the vapor controls on cars, you don't need to worry about condensation. And worry even less in hot areas, not much condensing going on, anyway.

    As for the knocking, if it's loud get to a mechanic soon. If it's barely noticeable I'd try filling up with premium after it gets to a half tank and see if it goes away.

    Is the 'check engine light' (or any warning light) on?
  • In 1983 I bought in San Diego, CA a glass bottle of Motor Purr power steering stop leak and put it into my 1978 Ford Fairmont with power rack & pinion steering, which had been leaking. A repair shop mechanic had estimated that the rebuild of the power rack would be about $600. Within a few days the power steering fluid leak stopped and there was no adverse side effect in the performance of my steering. I had the car for some time afterward and the steering stayed leak-free up to the day I sold the car. As I recall, the bottle indicated that Motor Purr was based in northern California, perhaps Sacramento. I live in South Carolina now and I'd like to know how to buy their products if the company is still extant. There seems to be some indication that they're still around.

    Sounds like typical snake oil. Or you're advertising it.

    What claims are made (I'm not about to click the link)?
    If it's anything more than a fuel system cleaner, you've almost certainly wasted your money. Hundreds of gas additives have come and gone, often with amazing claims, all proven to be worthless as far as fuel economy goes.

    He's spamming other sites with his snake oil too, lol

    Sea foam has worked wonders for my 1999 4Runner. Smooth and purring like a cat :smile:
