I find it curious that Chevron doesn't list Techron(polyetheramine)as an ingredient in their fuels on their MSDS. It does list however, Naphthalene and MTBE.

no, just try to keep the tank reasonably filled, but don't even do that much any more, as the longer I wait, the further prices drop...

No, I just continued to use Chevron fuel and feel I get the best mile per gallon from whatever additives they use.
