ooopppsss too much

I was adding some power service to my tank before filling up and got distracted by some scenery walking across the parking lot long legs blonde hair.......oh anyway back to the subject, I added to much, I added like 3/4 bottle of the white ( running white bottle because thats all I could find.), I usually only add half, will this hurt anything? Dont want to slick down any walls or anything........Also I was reading and it says power service reduces black smoke, aghhhhhhhh is this true, if so I must switch to something else I likey my black smokey......!!!!!!:burnout

shouldn't hurt anything it's prbably better than the fuel anymore,and yes it does stop the smoke a bit but if you get on it from the start you'll get some smoke more of a grayish color though

I was about to run out of fuel one time, and added a whole gallon of lucas. I wouldn't worry about it. It'll just clean out the injectors better

the white has the anti gel in it for cold weather the gray doesn't but I guess they're both a fuel stabalizer

The white bottle is what you should be running with cold temps coming, although us middle of the country folks don't have to worry to much about gelling. If you read on the bottle they give to different strengths, one is double the other, so adding a bit more won't hurt a thing. If you are still worried burn 10 gal and go fill her back up with fuel. Wal,art has these slick funnels that have calibrations on the side and a shut off valve with a long filler hose. You can close the valve fill to the right level , put hose in the tank then open the valve, makes adding the Power service very easy.
