Anyone know if this platinum stuff as effective as the old version?

Same here. I would be skeptical though. Chevron's Techron was reported to be a different, weaker formula in the consumer product that became available to all retailers than it was in the commercial package that was previously available only at Chevron outlets.

I read that one reason for changing the formula of these fuel additives if becasue there are no caps on fuel filler necks now to prevent fumes from escaping

Actually Mike, the capless systems are still sealed internally. (They have to be by law) The cap has been removed as another way to get the
"idiot out of the picture", If we don't have to take it off, then we can't ***** up putting it back on!

Yeah, I didn't say that I believed it, I just said that I read it. My motto is question everything.

You guys must have heard

"It's better to keep quiet and appear ignorant than to open your mouth and prove it"

EDIT

I've always loved one-liners, especially Groucho Marx and W. C. Fields. And don't forget Rodney Dangerfield!

For sure!
My 1st auto instructor's version was
"Better to be quiet and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!"
That one has helped me through life for sure!

That's one of my favorites.
Today I found that it has a long and interesting history, with many variations, and with them being credited to different people and books along the way. According to this short article (link below) it even has roots in the King James Bible...(which itself is a updated version in a series of updated translations and collections).


Another ancient proverb, found in many versions and cultures is often even more pithy. The one I like the best:

"An empty barrel makes the most noise."

Remind you of any particular politician, or most of them?
