    dont know about the starting . but i use this in mine every few tanks fulls . then drive up through the gears ,but hold it a bit longer in between each one , seems to help clear the exhaust ,

    When you say not starting well do you mean the engine turns over but doesn't fire, or it fires but is lumpy or.. ?
