Dont run the car! get gas tank REMOVED from car and thoroughly flushed including fill pipe assembly. Doing it with the tank in the car , although easier and less time consuming , will not be as effective(in my opinion- but I don't have to guarantee the job , nor do I need to worry about it 20,000 miles from now. In other words get a shop you trust to do a GOOD job , because odds are any residue that IS left , will take a while to show its' affects.

"Sugar" can also be used to refer to water-soluble crystalline carbohydrates with varying sweetness. Sugars include monosaccharides , trisaccharides, and oligosaccharides,[26] in contrast to complex carbohydrates such as polysaccharides. So mix it with oil would bre almost like mixing water with oil.
