Fuel injector cleaner brand recommendations?


Should I use fuel injection cleaner? If so, what brand?


I like Techron. It has always served me well. Seafoam, too.


Tom and Ray would recommend Techron, too. It’s one of the very few brand name recommendations I recall them making.


The OP can count this as another vote in favor of Techron.


I’m going on a trip and I bought my bottle of Star-Tron from Wal-Mart. It’s for boats but it’ll work. The others are good. I used Sea Foam, Berryman B-12 and probably something else. Maybe Gumout but I just assume that many of them are the same stuff; various paint thinners mixed together. Star tron is good for warp drive engines.


Are you looking for cleaner to solve a problem you’re having?

I never use fuel injection cleaner, and never had a problem where it would have helped.

My sense is the majority of drivers do not use it regularly.


Most gasoline sold in the US have plenty of cleaners already in it. Unless you are having a problem no need to add any. I do add a bottle once or twice a year when I am about to take a long trip. I buy any of the brands mentioned above, I look for the best price. It probably does not do any good, makes me feel a bit better but does no harm either.


Don’t waste money on fuel injector cleaner

Just fill up at top tier filling stations . . . Costco comes to mind, in case you’re a member


Not unless you are having a fuel system related symptom.


Well, he didn’t even say if he has any problems at all
