the right way to use it on a warm engine, take the vacuum hose while the engine is running and pour 1/3 of the container into the vacuum hose and let it turn off by itself. then pour 1/3 into the motor oil, and the other 1/3 into the gas tank. wait 5 minutes and then start the car. it will take a couple of hard cranks to turn on again but once it does its gonna shoot out alot of smoke.

No the right way to use it is to stuck 100% of the can into the vacuum hose. It's not going to do anything in the oil just burn off when it gets hot, and it's not strong enough cleaner to put in the gas tank. You suck it down at high idle (2000rpm), shut it off, wait 15-30 minutes, then go drive the piss out of it.

it doesn't go into your brake booster. pull the hose OUT of the brake booser that goes to the intake and pour it in there. 2person job to keep a high idle and pour at the same time. or stick something in the throttle body, (where the cable is)

He's right, time for a James bond style smoke cloud.

WTF propane?

Propane is easier on an engine then starting fluid. I use it all winter long starting dead vehicles from the extreme cold. Don't seem to get the knock as from starting fuild

Foamed my caprice today. Didn't get the impressive smoke cloud I was expecting. I did find that as I was pouring it, some smoke starting coming from the passenger side somewhere. I guess I have an exhaust leak there I didnt know about?
