Flash advice

Asked by Frank Young

I NOTICE you're often asked which fuel should be used with older cars and I'd like to pass on my experience after the introduction of LRP. My Honda Civic Shuttle had been a joy to drive, but overnight it became hard to start and baulked on take-off when cold. It was suggested I use an upper cylinder lubricant called Flashlube, which immediately fixed the problem.

THANKS for sharing your experience. Flashlube is one of many additives that can be added to unleaded fuel to protect against valve seat wear.
