Anyone use them and are they necessary ? I'm not looking at the additives as a performance enhancer, but wondering if they are necessary to keep the injection pump healthy, assuming it's lubricated with fuel, right ? I did a search and came up empty.

just used chevron techron fuel injection cleaner.....as was suggested by several gurus on the site and notice an instant difference .....

Additives as in Octane booster or 100+ octane gas???...Alot of the guys have experimented and found that on a stock motor you lose HorsePower...Best off with 94 octane and less!!!...It's been said that 89 octane is best because its oxygenated!!!...Thats a chance you have to take due to the low octane!!!

Techron FI cleaner can be found in auto parts stores and put it in Once a year...

It really works good for constipation & will take off warts<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> .

But seriously most good grade gasolines have additives that will keep FI systems clean provided you do not habitually run your tank near empty most of the time thereby allowing condensation to build up.

I'd use fuel injection cleaner cautiously and only if there was a REASON beyond good intention in the name of TLC!

Thanks for the replies, good info. I wasn't speaking of octane boost, just curious if the injection pump would benefit from some sort of lubricity. Guess I gotta loose the diesel mindset that's ingrained <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"> . We use Stanadyne PF, among others, to help the injection pumps stay healthy in the CTD's.
