    I recently met a Stortster rider who told me he uses OxyClean in his gas tank. He says it Oxygenates the gas helps keep the carburator, plugs and everything else clean, and stops that anoying sputtering,popping thing that all Sportsters do. Has anyone ever heard of this(or done it)?My husband thought it sounded crazy,but just thought I'd ask.

    Maybe being that he was a "Stortster rider" that's why he used it?:D

    I wouldn't put anything like that in the tank. No telling what results you may get when it contacts the parts in the system. Possible he was pulling your leg?

    I tried the oxy clean on clothes once and took it back for a refund.

    I swear He wasn't lying,but no I didn't try it. It sounded pretty far fetched, but so do alot of things I've heard over the years. Thanks for all your answers and for not beating me up too badly for asking.

    You guys don't think Billy Mays would sell a product that's harmful to a motorcycle engine do you? Just look at that face....
