If you run every night, there's no need to apply ARO, especially if you're running a quality fuel like Byron's; Sidewinder; Odonnell; Coldfusion. However, if you aren't going to run it for a couple weeks it's a good idea to put a couple drops in.

Thanks, that makes a bit less work at the end of the night.

1, walk the dog.
2, run the truck.
3, eat dinner.
4, run the truck.

I'm seeing a pattern.

I will use AOR only if my engines are going to sit longer than a week. Otherwise its pretty pointless. If you are running every night then no need to use it. There is enough oil in the fuel to keep the engine free from rust.
