I bought my then brand new 1982 Datsun 4×4 pick up truck when I got hired at the fire department, and it’s been good to me.  My wife has begged me to get rid of it many times over the years, but I’m determined to retire the truck when I retire from the department.  I’ve kept it running by keeping to a strict schedule of fluid replacement and from using engine treatments to keep the fuel system clean.

I used STP in the 80’s and 90’s but switched to another brand since then.  I don’t recall the exact reason, but it wasn’t because of lack of performance.  Likely someone told me the other brand worked better.  I decided it was time to give STP® Multipurpose Motor Treatment another try.

My truck has 220,000 miles now, and I’ve been the driver for every one of them.  I’ve blown two head gaskets in 32 years, but that’s the only major repairs I’ve had to make in all these years.  Can I say it’s because I used STP from the very beginning? Probably. But I’m not an engine expert, so I can’t say for sure.  But what I can say is it’s been a reliable form of transportation for so many years that I’m not going to stop using an Engine Treatment now to find out.

I  like that I can use STP® Multipurpose Motor Treatment in any gasoline-powered engine.  That would include our lawn mower, leaf blower, and chainsaws.  And since these sit most of the winter, STP® Multipurpose Motor Treatment will be an excellent choice since it’s specially formulated to keep engines that are idle for long periods of time in great condition.

Can I promise  STP® Multipurpose Motor Treatment will work for you?  It depends on your engine’s current condition, but generally,  it’s a beneficial way to clean engine deposits, fuel injectors, and intake values.  Plus protect against viscosity build-up and sludge.  And for those vehicles sitting through the winter, it’ll help prevent fuel line freezing.  It can do so much more depending on how you use it and how often, but I’m a believer in motor treatment products, and STP is a quality company I trust.
