    Probably get lambasted for asking a question but I searched fuel additives and nothing came up. I know modern fuel injected intakes require more than just the seafoam type additives. My BMW recommends Techron, does MG recommend any particular additive/cleaner for the EFI models?

    You don't have to use additives every time you get a full tank, just now and then if you suspect that you had bought "dirty" gasoline at some far-off service station.
    Any one brand can do.

    Also if you try to stick with top tier fuels, they contain plenty of additives to keep the fuel system clean. See https://clark.com/cars/top-tier-gas-stations-clean-engine-aaa/

    In 3600 miles I doubt it's ever been done before. Sometimes a good flush fuel cleaner can keep the injectors squeaky clean.

    Nothing like a motorcycle to let you know you got some crappy gas. I've had bikes act like a completely different machine from one tank to the next. I always try to use better gas comapnaies, but sometimes when you travel around you don't have much choice. That small town only has one gas station and you know you won't make it to the next town, you take what you can get.

    I'll try the Techron, I have some in my garage and if it's good enough for modern BMWs it's got to be good enough for MG.

    too often you still keep getting winter blend gas in the spring. especially with premium and small towns. it will run like crap if it gets too hot out.

    I live 100 miles north of Seattle as the crow flies. Same climate.
    One bike is stored for the summer, a couple are stored for the winter, usually about 6 months.
    Running fuel stabilizer through the system before storage to get it into the injectors, then following up with injector cleaner post storage has served me real well over the years.
    No need to over think it, but don't neglect it either.
    On the Carcs the injectors come out easy, should cleaning be required.
