Default fuel injection cleaner


i always pour it in before i fill up my gas tank at the pump. (as recomended from FIC manuf.)
i heard people put it in near empty. is this safe.
how do you put it in?

the directions say to put it in w/ every full tank. i wouldn't think its safe to put it in on empty as it is not gas, it has to mix. i just put half a bottle in w/ a half tank of gas today

When I cleaned my injectors, I actually took them out of the engine and soaked them in that stuff. It felt great for a few days, then went back to normal. I never do any of those additives/cleaner stuff.

i just bought some Lucas FIC today. heard good stuff about there products. i always use to put the Chevron FIC. since i usually pump that aswell i would think it would work hand in hand. i never had any problems with it but then again i put it on around every 3 months to keep my injectors spec less. i never really feel a difference when i pour this stuff in just feel like im rewarding my car and im keeping it in good shape. kinda like us eating vegetables there not going to make us smarter or jump higher instanly just better over all. a little OT . but just my .02

I never bother with that ****.

Why would they tell you to put a bottle in every time you fill up? Your injectors don't get dirty that fast...

Yah I know. Just wanted to hear it first hand from the people who flush money down the toilet.



No offense to anyone. Not my money.
