PM-3 is awesome!

I've only done one can so far and this thing smoked out my entire driveway, it was crazy. The funnel with the on-off and measuring cup makes it soooo much easier. Highly recommend it!

Yeah I'm following the TSB on this one, not that I need too but just cause. I'm changing oil, spark plugs and wires once I'm done.

Honestly I can't tell any different from the PM-3, spark plugs and new wires. I'm waiting to see if my mileage will change at all.
