I have been using Amsoil PI fuel treatment.

I don't use any.

What benefits does fuel treatment provide?


Edit: I use Sta-Bil in fuel that will likely be around awhile.

You are better off if you stay away from additives altogether.

Top Tier fuels should already have enough detergents and additives in them.

That's my theory and I've never had a problem from not using additives.
