Is it needed in every tank? I find carrying the bottle of Power Service messy to deal with and hard to measure accurately from the bottle.

I guess I could keep it at home and remember to use it, but wonder if anyone has a good solution for the measure. If I could find a way to carry individual pours in the trunk that won't leak from the container I would be happy camper.

I carry a 1 liter bottle of additive and a clean empty 500ml water bottle in a heavy duty zip lock bag, stored in the little cuby hole with the rubber strap in the trunk.
I use the water bottle, with a permanent marker line at 100cc, as a measuring cup and to pour the additive into the tank.
That way it is always with me and no stink and no spill.

I fill an small olive oil bottle with 4 oz. and carry just when needed. Last week I went 800 miles, took 2 pre-measured bottles.

Just stick a bottle in the trunk near the spare tire, and a funnel. Put "some" in when you fill, before the fuel goes in.

Quantity isn't all THAT important with this stuff, and there's no cost to "too much" other than to your wallet. It's inexpensive enough that frankly I don't get the point in trying to be too cute with the quantity.

I've run this stuff in boats and land vehicles for quite a long time and I like it -- it's inexpensive, available anywhere (including at Wally!) and works. Use the gray stuff during the summer and white in the winter (if you're in an area where temps go materially below freezing; if gel risk is not at issue where you are then use gray all the time.)

I'm no way an advocate of biofuels, but I'm wondering if periodic use of biodiesel would also help. Biodiesel is known to clean out crap from fuel system, maybe it also cleans up injectors a bit?
