Maybe we should've paid more attention in chemistry

There is some thought that the nitrogen in gasoline is just an "extender" or "filler".

I really can't see how adding it is supossedly going to magically rid our motors of carbon deposits & the other buildup on the valves.

And you would like a replacement... why?

I pulled them all after my unwarranted blowout that damaged my camper (not covered) and bought Goodyear Marathons. Fool me once...

I pulled off all the Carlisles after my blow out and after reading other posts on different forums about the problems people had with them. I kept one as a spare. I have Goodyear Marathons on now, although they too were made in China.
