Mr. Banana Hammocks & Tutus has wanted to have a voice here for quite some time. Well, he finally has his chance. Please welcome my handsome hubby, Kyle to the writing forum! Now without further ado:
I’ve been after my wife for some time now to “man up” her blog post once and while and see if any of her mommy followers would actually make their husbands read . This may be a surprise to some because I am more of a watcher than a writer. I’ve never been much of a writer and I’m sure this blog will show signs of this, but when my darling wife approached me about reviewing STP Multipurpose Motor Treatment, I said “heck, let’s see what I’ve got”. So, here goes nothing….
Prior to marriage and kids, my car was a top priority. I cared for her so much that I named her “Blue Bethany”. It makes it easier to take care of her if I give her a name. Weekly washing, vacuuming, detailing, engine maintenance, etc…were the norm. NOW, I’m lucky if I remember to clean out the week old banana peel my lovely daughter thought would be amusing to hide underneath the seat! I’m a Toyota guy and will probably always be. I currently cruise around town in my 2008 Toyota Yaris (I know, super chick magnet, just ask my wife!) So far, maintenance on my Yaris has been pretty good when you factor in the reality that I work on average 70 to 80 hours a week. Hence me sitting in the dark at 2am writing this review after working a twelve hour shift. Regardless, cars have this great way of not caring about things like this and seem to want to act up at the perfect time. The past two times I have taken my Yaris into the shop for maintenance I’ve been hit with the suggestion of fuel injection treatments and blah, blah, blah. I stop listening after the guy says “for only $129″. What’s the big deal? My car has run just fine for three years and I get great gas mileage (36mpg). I finally asked the guy once exactly what they do for the engine/motor treatment part and he basically told me they pour a container a motor treatment in the fuel tank to clean and enhance the injection of fuel. $129 for that when I can go to the store and pick up some STP Multipurpose Motor Treatment for less than $8 and do it myself. And, that’s exactly what I did. I even made it a family affair, with the wife and two of the three kids in hand, we headed off to Wal-Mart to get daddy’s little cruiser some much needed medicine.
Not only was it easy to find, STP Multipurpose Motor Treatment was super easy to use. After carefully reading the instructions on the back of the can, I simply added the appropriate amount of solution into the car’s gas tank. This was the only real maintenance I had planned on performing because i could tell my gas mileage had been fluctuating the past couple of weeks. After sealing the remaining contents and placing them in a safe place, I started my Yaris and waited. I’m very impatient so this didn’t last for long. I wanted to experience a change in my engine performance immediately. So, I drove off into the brisk afternoon sun and drove the 22 miles to work in silence trying to see if I could hear the difference. I even kept looking at my gas gauge to see how much it was going to fluctuate, if any. I must say, with even just the drive to and from work under the belt, I must say I do feel a difference in my car’s performance.
STP Multipurpose Motor Treatment is definitely something I will continue to use in the near future, in terms of a way to treat my precious car to some medicine. Forget $129, I could buy about 16 STP Multipurpose Motor Treatments, which would essentially last me 32 fill ups.
Well, I’m going to leave it at that, hopefully I was able to keep your attention long enough being this is my first time writing openly on the world wide web. Now, I will leave it to the professional….
