FTE Small - Re: Buildup inside of Fuel Injectors

I think it depends on just hw badly the injectors are.
On our (now gone) '91 F-250 w/460 EFI, while in Wyoming, it started running
fough. I diagnosed plugged injectors, bought 2 bottles of cheap ($1.50 each)
injector cleaner, put one bottle in each tank, and by the time both tanks
were empty, the truck was running like new again.
I *DID* do this at the first sign of trouble, and that may be why it worked.

>Or, why does "Fuel Injector Cleaner" sell so well?

Mostly hype. Fuel injector cleaner in the gas is what, 1 pint to 20
gallons? Not much to clean with.
The proper way to clean injectors is to have them removed and
ultrasonically backflushed. This cleans the particulate screen on the
injectors inlet as well. 2nd best is pressure cleaning on the car... IE:
fuel pump disabled, Cleaning fluid (usually Xylene and some alcohols mixed)
under pressure pumped into the fuel rail and the engine started and ran on
it until the can of cleaner is almost empty (engine starts to run rough)
then shut off and let it sit for an hour for the cleaner to "soak" the
injectors etc. Re-enable the fuel pump, clear the EEC memory and start
