Welcome to the HX world!

turborvr1991 mentioned MMO.
Marvel Mystery Oil, from car parts stores.
Bottle recommends 4 ounces per 10 gallons gas.
I use 2 ounces per 10 gallons gas.
Might need 2-3 tanks to get the full benefit.

I figured that with your fully rebuilt engine it would do lean burn down to 1800 rpm without any MMO. So my new interpretation is that the need for MMO is not because the engine is dirty - yours is CLEAN!! My guess now is that the cars were built for more standard gasoline without the alcohol and other junk included these days. Just maybe the MMO compensates for that change.

Regardless of why it works, several of us have found that it does. Try it in 2-3 tanks and see how things go for you.

And good luck!!
Coast long and prosper.
