Archoil 6200 and math
I have decided to give the Archoil 9100 and 6200 a shot since hearing such great things about both. The package arrived today and for the 9100 it's straight forward and makes sense, but for the 6200 it seems like very little product to me.
The instructions say that 1oz treats 80 gallons of Diesel. Well, I have a shortbed truck which is supposed to hold 29 gallons, so time to do some math.
If 1oz treats 80 gallons, then (1/80)*29 = 0.3625oz treats 29 gallons, which is quite small and difficult to measure so let's get a smaller measure..... hey the wife won't mind, let me use her measuring spoons. An ounce = 2 tablespoons which is still going to be too big! So teaspoons.... 1oz = 6 teaspoons... Ok, now we're getting somewhere. Ugg.... more math... So I need 0.3625oz for a full tank of fuel, so that means that I need 0.3625 / (1/6) or 2.175 teaspoons, or roughly 2 1/4 teaspoons, because my wife's measuring spoons only have 1/8, 1/4 1/2 and 1 teaspoon (which is actually MORE than required)!
I am pretty sure that the math is correct, so is that right? Does it really take 2 1/4 teaspoons / full tank? Now usually I get about 20 gallons on a fill-up which is 1 1/2 teaspoons of 6200.... An 8oz bottle would last for 32-20 gallon fill-up's!
For those of you who are using the product, how are you measuring into your tank to be sure you don't overdose? Do you really see a difference with such little product, or do you need to use more?
