Anyone using fuel additive?!

Are any of you using fuel additive?!
My 991.1 has the direct injected non turbo 9A1 engine.
I'm my older cars I have used " Marvel Mystery Oil " in the gas. It's a awful name for a good product. I like the way it can add upper cylinder lubricant.
However, I have never used it in a modern gas engine and would like to her what you think about. Or any other fuel additive for that matter.
Thanks!

I have in the past, very good stuff and it was even Mercedes-Benz approved 20 years ago. What I'm not sure of with Techron is can it be used every fill up or just during a 15K major service.

If you use tier 1 gas, you shouldn’t need anything else.

If you are using decent quality gas, once a year and change the oil after the tank has run out. You can use it more frequently, but if the car is already in good shape, once a year is fine.

I recently purchased a 991.1 with 58K miles. I plan to use Techron additive once prior to the next oil change, and then consistently use Chevron gas thereafter.

I did not know that, looked it up and thanks to you I learned something.
