Porsche Classic Fuel Additive in the US??

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know why the Porsche Classic Fuel Additive (300 ml) is no longer sold in the US (it is in Germany and many other countries)?

Thanks in advance,

Humberto-

I use StaBil 360.

Reading the Porsche Fuel Additive description HERE it sounds just like StaBil 360.

I do not disbelieve in anything. I start from the premise that everything is true until proved false. Everything is possible.

The Porsche can is 300mL (about 10oz). I bet it costs $15, just the same price as 32oz of StaBil 360.

Thanks for the feedback.

Jeff, did you ordered from a Porsche dealership in CO? I tried both Porsche of Annapolis and in Las Vegas today, and both stated that it had been discontinued...

Anyway, I know that StaBil is cheaper, and I have been using it on my cars for years. But my cars don't get driven enough for a difference in price in a fuel additive to be remotely a concern I am sure this Porsche product is top quality and you got to love the packaging! Porsche is truly brilliant at marketing.

I checked with an official Porsche Classic Center (e.g. Paul Miller Center in NJ) and the fuel additive has not been discontinued (as another dealership told me but could not state why!), it is just so new it has not be released yet for the US - there is not a single one in a US Porsche warehouse). But they will be soon
