Question Injector cleaner

What type of injector cleaner do you use, and have had the best results with? I'm going to put some through my fuel system and I would be interest in what you guys think is best.

We use ProForm at work, but we only use it when we also do the onboard injector clean.

I myself use the Nulon fuel system cleaner and octane boost in one in the falcon. Costs $8 a bottle and you do notice the difference. It recommends using it every 4 tanks, I've only done it twice and its been about 8 re-fills since I last used it and it still feels better than what it did before I used it.

Ive used NULON boost & clean and found it to be great in all aspects as the name suggests!

Yep that red nulon stuff is magic. Drive the car for about 5 clicks and you really do notice a difference. No BS and I don't work for Nulon either. Might try that Toyota stuff next time around.

I had a bad miss in my EFIIwagon and had a mechanic friend who told me to try the holden top engine cleaner($$18 a bottle).he said to put it through 2 bottles to 1/4 tank and rinse it in with a bit of pet( this is 4 times the recommended strength on the side of the bottle)within about 3 blocks the miss was gone..worked shit hot.that was about 5000 ks ago still running smoothly.

This is a little off topic, but the other day I wanted to buy some injector cleaner for my car, and the chick behind the counter at shell wouldn't sell it to me!!!

She said that because I use optimax (which is supposed to clean your injectors anyway) i'd be wasting my money. I told her i wanted it anyway, and she refused!!! What the???

That is very weird. :shifty: I can't believe she just flat-out refused to sell it to you. Fair enough if she said I wouldn't recommend it, but to actually say no is a bit harsh.

If I was to put some injector cleaner through my car, do I have to put it in with a full tank? I might get some some of this Nulon stuff to see how it goes.
