Moth Balls

    Moth Balls can be used to increase the octane rating of the gasoline your are using. The higher octane not only increases power, but will also increase gas mileage. The ratio is 5 moth balls for every 1 gallon of gasoline. Place moth balls in gas tank before fueling the car. Also add 1ounce of WD40 per gallon of gasoline. This will help remove water from the gasoline and make it ignite better.

( Note: The moth balls must contain naphthalene.) 





 Place moth ball inside of the gas tank fill spout opening.








 Here is the moth ball inside the gas tank fill spout opening. Note that the ball will rest against the spring loaded door.






    Using a wood stick.








  Slowly push moth ball past the spring loaded gas tank fill spout door.
