With school back in session, I was reflecting on what an amazing summer we had. We traveled to so many places. In fact, my daughters and I counted 8 states. We visited family, attended baseball games and concerts, drove to the beach, explored the mountains, and went to several water and amusement parks. We drove a lot; putting some wear and tear on two of our cars.
While the kids spent a lot of time having fun creating memories, as parents it’s up to us to plan and organize and ensure we do it safely. To do this, regular auto maintenance and extending the life of our cars is very important. Gumout® performance additives can help cars last so that we can continue to have many more family getaways.

There are two different Gumout® products we use in our cars. Gumout® All-In-One® Complete Fuel System Cleaner for our everyday SUV and Gumout® Regane® High Mileage Fuel System Cleaner for our 2007 family van. Both of these vehicles have very different uses. I use the SUV for taking the girls to and from school and activities, go to the grocery store, and other everyday transportation needs. The van on the other hand, is used for our big trips to and from Arizona and other fun travels.

Our family SUV is technically “my” car. It must come in and out of our garage 100 times a day. OK, I’m exaggerating, but with two different schools, piano lessons, play dates, and softball practices, the girls and I spend a lot of time in this car. I also care for my elderly, live-in mother who has a lot of doctor’s appointments.
We use Gumout® All-In-One Complete Fuel System Cleaner + Ethanol Treatment in this everyday family SUV because it helps improve fuel economy and horsepower as well as helps boost engine performance.

Gumout® Regane® High Mileage Fuel System Cleaner
Our van is my husband’s pride and joy. Yes, I’m serious. This was a van that was supposed to be purchased for one purpose, to move my mom across country, and then sold or “flipped” right away. When we bought it, he promised it would be gone in a month. Then, months later I knew we would have it forever. Not only did he buy a matching blue headband, I knew it was love when I saw him strategically placing stickers on the back window.
Since then, the van has grown on me. Our friends didn’t understand it until they started borrowing it for their family trips! Needless to say, we (and our friends) put a lot of miles on “Van-tera”. Yes, the van has a name. We also have a lot of family that live in Arizona. We drive back and forth once, sometimes twice, a month. It’s a five-hour trip one way. Hence, caring or Van-tera, is a priority for us.
Specially formulated for vehicles over 75,000 miles, we use Regane High Mileage Fuel System Cleaner for Van-tera because it helps restore engine performance and helps extend the life of your engine. Make it part of your car’s maintenance routine.
Other Benefits Include
- Cleans your entire fuel system
