Fuel Injector cleaner/gas additive. Which??

I have found the following to work well for me, but wanted to see if anyone else has had really good success with another brand.

LUCAS
JB Justice Brothers
BG products.

Any one else have something they think is better than average?

Lucas works good...I buy it buy the gallon...I use it after I use a good cleaner like Techron or Seafoam or BG13....I use it in every 3rd fill up...or every 3 weeks...I fill up weekly.,,,

after reading alot of info the Lucas is a good after cleaning product to keep injectors clean and lubed...

also another good cleaner is the Syntech Injector cleaner....

Syntech is made by Valveoline...its their synthetic line....I use thier throttle body cleaner also...every 6 months....

No never tried the JB line....is that the Justice Brothers line....I have heard good stuff on it....but again never used it or saw it local....

The Techtron has worked good for me and the sea foam in the brake booster line has worked good also...I notice much better response and smoother idling after a sea foam treatment....

I use Sea Foam like every 2-3 months, run through the brake booster line since on my truck Ford decided to put the PCV valve in the back at an angle you can't reach lol.

Chevron w/Techron
Gumout REGANE

Check out the BobIsTheOilGuy.com forums for more info! Techron is probably the most popular OTC fuel system cleaner over there.

I have always wondered about if fuel additives worked. How can you tell if it works? And I hope its not "It pulls harder"

Of course they make it pull harder! I think they are more preventative maintenance more so than a performance improver. Most of the cars that I've seen show noticeable results from them are not maintained as well as they could be. In those situations, I've seen improved idle quality and very marginal improvements in mpg. It's more peace of mind and keeping the internals nice and clean. I've used the BG products mostly. Tried some others and wasn't really impressed. The Techron stuff has received good reviews, but who knows if they were "bought" or not. YMMV
