I've been told Chevron Techron is the best.. it's a little pricey but
does the job. I've also been told to use it on a 1/2 a tank instead of
a full tank.

Good luck,

Because of the small concentration (one pint to 15-20 gallons) they really
don't do much...
If you run the tank almost empty, pour in the bottle (best one I have found
is the Chevron Techron) and drive it for 15-20 minutes, THEN fill up, It
seems to help. The best method is to buy a pressurized fuel injector
cleaner kit from NAPA... Hooks to the test port on the fuel rail, and has a
pressurized can of cleaner. You trip the inertia switch (or unplug the
power line to the fuel pump) hook this kit up, open the valve and start the
engine... Let it run until it starts to sputter and kill it. Let it sit
for about 30 minutes, hook the f.p. power back up (or reset the inertia
switch), disconnect the kit and start it up and go. Makes a WORLD of

Check engine came on yesterday on it, and got it checked today, and it was
the O2 sensor. I'm getting a new one tomorrow and hope this will keep it
running smooth until I get a new F150 next year. :)

piston rings)

last step for me is going in a Ford place and waitimg for the (think so)
expensive bill
