Most people whose sailboats have Atomic 4 gas flathead engines use Marvel Mystery Oil in their gas in order the keep their valves better lubricated. The valves have a tendency to stick on these engines and the oil is reputed to help, even by the most experienced rebuilders of the engines. I see no reason to put it in my cars.
