Default Spray Can Carb. Cleaner

I use the crap out of the Gumout carb. spray, except on carburetor's. How about you? One day I was at the Advane store & decided to try one their own store brand instead. You know, then the price difference was about a buck cheaper. I bought my usual 6 cans. First time I used it that stuff left the oilest film when it dried. Anybody else been there? I KNOW, I KNOW, Dumb topic, or is it. HMMMMM! ok, Maybe I'm bored, been kind of a slow week. Kris p.s. this one isn't as bad as the guy who can check compression ratio w/ the motor running.

Default me too

I mostly get the gumout at the dollar store but since they changed the style can its gone up to $3.00 a can. I go into the same store every week and buy a case. Of coarse they look at me like I'm up to no good.

Berryman B-12.

I would never use ANYTHING made by Pennzoil. Sorry but I was an auto parts salesman for 12 years.

Default carb cleaner

WoW, didn't expect any response to this one. Ok, let me ask you this. How many actually like the smell of the cleaner they use?
