I watched this video and it looks like none of them are an instant fix but in the long run I use Seafoam. I also use it in my gas can for my lawn mowers and snowblower. It's a 6 gallon can and sometimes takes about 3 years to go through the 6 gallons. I've never had a problem with any of my small engines starting. My snowblower is a Honda HS55 which I bought in the mid 80s. The only thing I've had to do to it, other than normal maintenance, is replace the V-Belts for the drive and auger and I did that last winter.

When I started working on motors back in the 70's our go to treatment was Marvel Mystery; many of the old mechanics used it with very good results. In 1971 a fellow gave me his 1946 Dodge Sedan because he didn't like the way it ran. First thing in went new plugs fallowed by starting and squirting Marvel into carburetors allowing the car to smoke like crazy. After about fifteen minutes the car purred like a kitten.Since then other additives came on the market allowing good results. There will always be Marvel Mystery in my work shed.

That's interesting, we can get all of them over here but I don't think they are that common to use as we mainly use Wynnes, Carlube or Redex.
