Premium fuel additive formulated to thoroughly clean and restore peak performance in small engine and powersports equipment fuel systems.

Degraded fuel presents a major maintenance issue in small engines and powersports equipment. It can form varnish, gum and insoluble debris that clog carburetors, fuel injectors and fuel filters. Carbon buildup can form on the tops of pistons, causing pre-ignition, rough idling and poor throttle response. Fuel-related problems are only expected to intensify in the coming years as the ethanol content in pump gasoline continues to increase.

AMSOIL Quickshot (AQS) is a premium fuel additive formulated to thoroughly clean and restore peak performance in small engine and powersports equipment fuel systems. It also stabilizes fuel between uses and during short-term storage. Its revolutionary technology focuses on three major fuel-related issues plaguing these applications: ethanol, water and dirty pump gas.

Ethanol
Ethanol in fuel has a tendency to absorb water and separate from the gasoline (a process known as phase separation), sinking to the bottom of the gas tank where it quickly degrades and creates gum, varnish and other insoluble debris that can plug fuel-flow passages and negatively affect engine performance. When this ethanol/water mixture is pulled into the engine, it creates a lean-burn situation that increases combustion chamber temperatures and can lead to engine damage. AMSOIL Quickshot is designed to keep water dispersed throughout the fuel tank, moving it out as a normal part of operation and decreasing the chance of ethanol separating from the gasoline.

Quickshot was tested in fuel containing 10 percent ethanol. Controlled plugging of injectors showed a 70 percent flow improvement, while oxidation stability improved 44 percent over untreated fuel.

Water
Water finds its way into gas tanks through condensation in tanks open to the atmosphere, gas pumps and other environmental conditions, and if left untreated, will cause starting, performance and corrosion problems. By keeping water dispersed in tiny molecules and safely moving it out of the tank through the combustion chamber, Quickshot helps maintain engine performance and protects against damaging corrosion.

Dirty Gasoline
Dirty gasoline causes fuel-system gumming and varnish, as well as piston and combustion chamber deposits. Although all gasoline sold in the U.S. is formulated with a lowest additive concentration (LAC) level of detergent additives, these detergent levels are not enough to prevent deposits from building up on critical fuel system components. Quickshot contains unique chemistry that quickly detaches and carries away deposits and buildups in fuel systems, injectors and carburetors, while also cleaning hard-to-remove deposits on piston tops, spark plugs and other combustion chamber parts.

APPLICATIONS
Quickshot (AQS) is recommended for use in all two- and four-stroke gasoline-powered engines, including motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, personal watercraft, ATVs, edgers, tillers, mowers, snowblowers, chainsaws, generators and farm and construction equipment. However, AMSOIL P.i.® Performance Improver is the superior choice for passenger vehicle applications.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Quickshot is designed for an initial clean-up dose of 8 oz. per 6 gallons of gasoline, followed by 8 oz. per 12 gallons thereafter. Slight overtreatment has no negative consequences.

I recommend AMSOIL p.I. cleaner to anyone to clean the engine combustion chamber and fuel injectors or carburetor of a gasoline engine. I've used this exact product on a recommended vehicle maintenance schedule for many years. There is a very noticeable difference to prevent engine from knocking by cleaning the carbon from the combustion chamber. I use this in a Ford truck, Pontiac car and a Kawasaki motorcycle. Highly recommended above any product of its kind is AMSOIL p.I.

    Comments about Gasoline Stabilizer:

    Living in Washington State, I don't ride my 2014 BMW R1200RT-LC year round so I leave it in the garage hooked up to a Battery Tender, and the gas tank filled with Pure Gas AND 3 oz. of Amsoil's Gasoline Stabilizer. Every summer when I start up my bike there is little hesitation, and the engine settles down to a steady idle. Riding that first tank shows no problems or misses in any RPM range, though I don't get the full mileage of 300 miles, but with the very next tank of gas things are back to normal.

    Comments about Gasoline Stabilizer:

    I trust Amsoil products, after using them for so many years. Our gasoline gets delivered by barge and then trucked to us. It's always got visible crud in it and I have to put it through a filter first. As soon as I get my gasoline, I filter it and add Amsoil Gasoline Stabilizer. While others in the area have had numerous problems with 'bad gas,' my gasoline has never let me down. It gets used in my Stihl saws, Echo yard equipment, my Polaris Ranger, my portable Honda generator, my Ariens wood splitter, etc. Never a problem.

    Before I started using this product (P.I.) my 2006 Toyota Tacome was getting about 19 - 20 MPG. When I use this product it moves easily to 20-22 MPH. It must be doing something good. However, I must admit to using exclusively Amsoil Signature oil.
