smart recommends 91 octane or higher for a reason.....and using Top Tier gas is a good thing.

I would recommend adding about 2 ounces of Marvel Mystery Oil every other tankful.

Now that I live 0.5 miles from work, any vehicle I drive to work now by default lives a much harder life than before. Somehow I didn't foresee that when I signed my lease (with my workplace in the background).

My remedy to preventing carbon buildup is a good ol' "Italian Tuneup". I basically redline every shift at least once a week and make sure the car gets its legs stretched. I have to do the same with the scooter I sometimes ride to work. If I don't, the crank breather starts spitting out milky oil..
