The only Marvel I know is Agents of Shield  Wink; and I use the cheapest gas, always, for all my cars.

I checked the internet and they are both are branded products in the U.S. Some companies will put goofy names on their products to get your
attention hoping that the name will make you buy it. As far as I'm concerned, except for the really cheap stuff and synthetic, motor oil is motor
motor oil and without taking octane into consideration gasoline is gasoline. When buying from the major manufacturers one is as good as the other.
I also agree with Sam. Because gasoline in Canada is so expensive I too go where it's the cheapest. This morning around the corner at the Husky
station, gas was $1.26 per liter. There are 4.5 liters in a Canadian gallon so at $1.26 per liter our gas would cost $5.67 gallon.
In the U.S a gallon is only a piddly little 3.78 liters so at our prices a U.S. gallon would cost $4.76.

EAM, If you mean hoping our gas prices will get better, we aren't going to hold our breath waiting for that happen.
Gas prices here seem to go up more than they go down. I wouldn't be surprised if the tragic sinking of that oil
tanker with all hands last week gave the oil companies an excuse jack up gas prices again.

Marvel makes more than comic books?
 I guess everyone has to diversify.

 What I do know about Marvel Mystery Oil is that it has been around for a very long time. Old timers would use it religiously making all sorts of claims of benefits. But so far as I have determined, it's essentially snake oil in today's marketplace.

 As far as gas, it is beneficial to buy gas from a name brand station. While all gas comes from the same big tank, it's the additive that are added to the gas after it's loaded in the tanker, or blended by the company between the big tank and the tanker. It's these additives that produce the desirable results we need in today's gasolines. Cheaper off brand gasolines tend to not have these additives, and as a result some undesirable characteristics can result.

 But so far as additives, there is one that seems to be part and parcel of today's gasolines. That's ethanol. It's destructive to older cars, and in particular small engines. Add that it contains about half the heat energy of gasoline, so it has the effect of decreasing your fuel economy. Ethanol is politically driven, and it's a net negative fuel, meaning that you get less energy out of it than is required to produce it. Ethanol as a fuel does have its' benefits, however they cannot be realised in the environment of vehicles today. It's best to seek out stations that do not add it, and if there is one locally, stick to them.

 So far as being given a break on the price? That's laughable. Our current government is so tax hungry, and prescribes to the lunacy of carbon taxes, prices will go up rather than down. There already has been talk about that within the Wynn government. More taxes, and the increase of the ethanol levels already in the gasoline.

GUYS AND GALS;  I suggest you all get to your internet and google: "What is Top Tier gasoline and then google What is Marvel Mystery Oil";  you all will be satisfied with the information and what the affects are on our engines.  Canada's Top Tier gasoline is Exxon, Shell, BP Valero Mobil, etc; Marvel Mystery Oil has been used by motorist since 1923 and believe me it is not snake oil.  I use both Top Tier gas and "Marvel Mystery Oil in all my four cars and I know the engines are running much better and quieter. I understand your gas is much too high compared to the States (except for Leftist California) where we are down to $2.469 per gallon for Exxon, Shell, etc. in most of New England.  Canada is still one of my favorite countries.  EAM

 I have read a fair bit on MMO. I have read claims that it has done this and that, but so far I haven't found any hard evidence that it does any good. Or anything as to just what it really is.

 Remember Slick 50 and its' claims? Real tests proved that it did nothing at all. It is still sold, but only as a general additive with no claims made.

  MIKE!  MMO has been around since 1923  and the claims are legitmate; Slick 50 may be what you say but not in the same class as MMO and is not salable as it was before but MMO is very salable at least in the USA.  Check around with some guys who have been using it, or try it yourself a few times and you might be convinced like I was.  EAM

It's not available here in the Great White North but is available at Wal-mart in the U.S. for $16.00 a gallon.
Next time I go to the outlet mall in Niagara Falls N. Y. I'll check it out. There's a huge Wal-mart next door.

RON:  That's a good price at Wal-mart; Amazon is selling it for $24.35 per gallon which in most cases is much higher than Wal-mart in their products, so be careful what you buy at Amazon.  Ron, you'll see you will like what MMO does for your engines.  EAM

MMO is a light mineral oil with some red colouring and a small amount of oil of wintergreen (like some chewing gum).  A small amount shouldn't hurt anything, and might even help to lubricate high pressure mechanical injection pumps, but too much would lower the effective octane rating of the fuel.

 In other words, little or no benefit. Except what you stated. I regard it as the placebo effect.
