I only use Lucus fuel treatment. Put a small bottle in your tank when you fill up, cleans the injectors very well. Highly recommended. You can get it at any local auto parts place (Advance Auto, AutoZone, O'Reilly's, Napa, etc.)

Personally I really like the Chevron Techron cleaners. They really clean things up if I've had some iffy gas in the tank.

I had a shop sell me some BG oil additive claimed it to be wonderful just like the BG website. I searched the web a lot but I couldn't find any data or stats to back up their claims, never used it again. The shops do make money selling this stuff.

it doesnt fix..... it cleans....put in the tank to clean fuel injectors, lines and filter.
then in the oil for only 100 miles to clean the inside of the engine, and threw the brake booster vac line to clean the intake.

you really only need one can. pore half in the tank.
then half of whats left into the brake booster vac line slowly.
only if you need, or going to clean the inside of the engine you can pore half in there as well.
