STP Gas Treatment?

I have always used STP gas treatment just about every time I fill up a full tank, and recently (past month) I have noticed that I cannot seem to find it anwhere. Every place I go to, trak auto, gas stations, have been out of stock and it has been like that for weeks.

Does anybody know if they have stopped making it or what? or what's the deal why it's no longer around. i used to find it everywhere all the time.

and in the meantime, what's a good replacement that does not cost like ten dollars or more a bottle? penzoil gas treatment? or what?

oh no, it's not required for anything. i can run it without any treatment no problem, i just always been in the habit of doing the little label that says use on every tank :)

i don't even know if it really lives up to the claims of saving gas and improving gas mileage because i have never really compared without it.

it is supposed to keep your fuel system clean along with some other various stuff, and i don't really mind paying an extra two dollars in addition to the already high price of gas, since it can't hurt.

the ones that i really do try to avoid are the ones that cost like 15 dollars and claim to improve performance by like 20 horsepower and i just don't buy those b.s. claims...but stp is a pretty well known and reliable brand that has been out there for years and years.
