Well, I've stopped at gas stations where I only have ONE fuel dispensing hose. IF I only have available a pump where someone was pumping "regular" fuel, I administer the "additive" which picks up the octane rating.
Why? Because a single hose system will first dispense the previous fuel selection until the hose is flushed.
According to the Texas Department responsible for monitoring these pumps they will "flush" 5 gallons through the system before taking the "sample".....
Now, in a 25 gallon tank, the "hit" will be small. According to the Texas Department that I contacted, that's the type of application they "support". The tank size of the LT with this dilution rate, it can be significant.
I also choose an additive that will cleanse the injectors. It makes a difference in fuel mileage to me, which adds to the true story, "conspiracy theory" I mention above.
