Fuel additive

I have a 2003 boxster. Should I use a fuel additive to clean sparks and injectors? I am new to Porsche. Thanks.

I have an Oxg Sensor Circuit Bank 2 Sensor 2 issue. The Readout says P2272, P2273 What can I expect the cost to replace this and is it two sensors that are bad?

The Readout says Oxygen Sensor Circuit Bank 2 Sensor 2

What can I expect to pay to replace this (2?) sensor and how hard it it to do myself and how will I idenify which sensor (s) is faulty?

 

Is there a part number that I can use?

 

how to drain fuel

Hi, I've been trying to drain old fuel out of my tank since last night and have had no luck.  I tried syphoning out of the filler, but i can't seem to get the tube down far enough to reach the fuel.  I've also tried doing the jumper trick on pellican parts, but i can't seem to get that to work either.  The battery has been painful to charge, though it's less than 1 year old, so I can't rule that out as a contribuing factor.  I can get the car to chug, but haven't dared to try to fully start it with the old fuel.  I have 1/2 tank of fuel that has to adios in order to start the car and replac

Where to find the diffuser for the inlet for the manifold 2002 Boxster

I was at the Tech Tactis, and in the Cayman / Boxster presentation. The talk was on intake air up grades. Throttle housing diameter, splitting the inlet air in the manifold after the throttle. Air filter and exhaust up grades.

I was looking for some of the items and did not locate them.

"Blowing Bottle" Noise From Fuel Filler Area

Thanks in advance for your help! My vehicle is a 2000 Boxster 2.7L.

My issue began with the infamous noise from the fuel filler area that sounds like someone blowing over the top of a beer bottle. The noise was fairly continuous at slight acceleration around 2500 rpm and would stop with throttle change. After much research here and elsewhere, I elected to change the two purge valves in the front passenger fender area (P/N 996-605-213-01 and 996-605-201-01) along with the fuel filler cap. This did not resolve the issue.
