This is what I have always done with the EFI engines, but I still use fogging oil on my carb engines.

I've used ATF for years with no issues. Actually burns off nice.

I pour Marvels Mystery oil right down the carb. Been doing it for years. It does not foul the plugs.
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

1400 hours on a set of efi 502s in a sportfish. Never fogged them, turn them over every 4 weeks or so in the winter as the boats up on the hard. Fire up in April every year and go boating. I have more worries about the ethanol than the fogging but lucky so far.

I have a feeling Audiofns Formula still has the fogging oil from some 10 yrs ago.

Correct Packer- no MAF on my EFIs : ) I put sea foam in a spray bottle and choke those *****es until Spring, then I replace the fuel filters in the spring before I run it - I also use a gas stabizer Seafoam loves keeping moisture out of fuel too - so its two fold
