So as it turns out, I am having a really hard time finding some techron. The best I can do is go to Caltex, owned by chevron, and fill up with 95 RON with techron.

Am I likely to run into issues with the seals on my solenoids? i.e. are they likely to be rock solid from not being changed, and if I pull them out, would it be likely to start a leak?
