My Prius dealer suggested I get my 2004 Prius jets cleaned as its been at
least 2 years since they were last done..I cant see where in the service
manual where this item needs doing at any milage or age of my vehicle. Any
ideas plse folks? Should I tell him to forget the jets as its going cost
almost $00 more for them alone to be cleaned.

Bottle of injector cleaner is probably all that they will put in ya tank.

If you're really concerned about keeping them in first class order you
should be considering having them done at least every 3 to 6 months
depending on your mileage, and I'd be wary of the dealer's 100 buck
"cheapie" service as it's likely to be far from thorough.

Absolutely, to do it right it would cost at least $00 each:-)
