Fuel Injection Cleaner
« on: March 11, 2020, 08:39:07 PM »
Does anyone use it? If so does it matter which one?

Reason I'm asking is a mate said I should try using some before I change the plugs on my winter hack which has recently become hard to start.

If you feel the need? -- to sort a problem that may not respond to ordinary diagnostics. Mis-fires, for instance, can be a fuel injector issue as well as ignition.
We have some gasolines rated as "Top Tier" that are supposed to have F.I. injector cleaner added (thereby making the assumption that lesser fuels don't...).
Chevron "Techron" has been around a long time and has been recco'd. There are others - some stronger: read the contents label -- strong chemicals in some.
Companies that sell additives usually adhere to the rule of "First, do no harm."
As to hard starting: (probably?) address the normal causes first.
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

I have been using Seafoam motor treatment for years. Its works as a fuel stabilizer and a cleaner.  It has served me well in both areas.
Shiny side up !
