$00 each sounds good. I'd spend my $00 on 2L of Smirnoff Vodka to keep away
the swine flu... or influenza A, h1 n1 IIRC

I don't take sides.
It's more fun to insult everyone.

Its a scam as far as I`m concerned ? Unless you use the cheapest low
octane fuel you can buy its not really necessary.

I have had fuel injected cars since 1990 and the only thing I used
was  a small bottle of fuel injector cleaner once pr twice a year.

If your mileage and performance dont drop off you dont need that even.

However having said that ? I now use  LUCAS fuel injector and
carburator fuel treatment when I gas up

My `02 camry was idling a bit rough and my son told me to try it? I
did and what a difference.

I thought it was just another additive scam like so many on the market
today ?

My son in law has an `02 Plymouth Caravan and he was going to put new
high tension wires on it and new spark plugs. (basically a minor
tuneup ) as it was running rough.

I told him about the LUCAS treatment and he tried it and that was two
years ago and he still hasnt done the tuneup thing and that vehicle is
on the road every day.

My Camry now idles so nicely you can hardly hear it running and
mileage and performance are at the peak.


I just know it WORKS~!!

It's crap
spend another 9cpl and fill it with Shell V-Power(or PULP from a Shell
branded non Coles servo), BP Ulimate or Caltex Vortex, these all have an
injector cleaner
do this every 3rd or 4th tank full

$00 is a bit more than Ford wanted for a bottle of injector cleaner

Cheaper still, buy some E10 fuel. The ethanol will be just as good at
cleaning injectors as the usual 'dump it in the tank'  liquids.
