Used Chevron most of the time, STP was highly reccomended too. Just based off of what I've heard from friends and whatnot. I dont do it too often.

Fuel power is what i use. 2 oz's every fill up is the dosage. I prefer this regiment rather than just dumping a bottle of cleaner every 3k or so. I seem to be getting a little better mileage to boot.

STP = free t-shirt.
And this is a hard decision, why?

At work we sell and use an injector cleaner that acutally does work... it is not an additive to your gas tank.

The cleaner we use is in a compressed can similar to a spray paint can. The vehicle runs off of this bottle until it runs out.
Basically you remove the fuel pump fuses, run the vehicle out of the gas left in the rail and lines...then you remove the fuel line from the rail...hook up your regulator and can of injector cleaner and start the vehicle....cycle it through different rpm ranges then let it idle...we have tested the injectors and found they flow more after doing this procedure.

I dont remember the brand name. You might be able to find it online.

I've heard that techron is the best and I try to only use Chevron gas with techron... but last time I pulled my head I still had a good amount of carbon buildup around my valves.

Do these fuel additive "injection cleaners" really make that much of a difference? I always thought that using high octane fuel already cleans out the system from carbon build up on injectors and valves? I use 94 octane every time i fill up. What advantage do these cleaners have over high octane fuel?

Higher octane can potentially leave fewer carbon deposits but doesn't do anything by itself to clean injectors or valves. That's the purpose of additives like Techron.

Berryman's B12 is hands down the best, no question.

Another alternative some of you might want to consider if you're concerned about thoroughly cleaning your injectors is sending them out and having them professionally serviced. There are numerous shops you can locate online that will perform a complete cleaning and servicing for ~$50 total. In my opinion it's quite a good deal when you consider the cost of a few bottles of some of the high-end injector cleaners. Doing this perhaps every other year (or even yearly) in conjunction with running some of the inexpensive off-the-shelf fuel system cleaners would most likely keep your injectors in excellent shape.

Here is a link to the shop that recently serviced the Prelude injectors being used in my brother's setup - WitchHunter Performance

Using a higher octane fuel than your car need usually leaves more carbon deposits, not less. If your car can't efficiently burn that extra fuel, than it will create some carbon buildup.
