Just wondering what you all use to clean your fuel injection system and to clean valves. Thanks.

I've had good results from all of the following:

RedLine SI-1

Chevron Techron

Sea Foam

Gumout Regane (not Rogane, that would cause hair to grow on your valves :rolleyes: )

For periodic "maintenance", I've had very good luck with Berryman's B-12 Chemtool. It's pretty cheap too! (I'm not sure how widely available it is.)
I like to think of it as SeaFoam Lite.

I swear by Chevron Fuel System Cleaner. It's had a bunch of different names over the years, but it's all the same stuff. I worked at a fuel company for a while, and it's the only product we sold that we guaranteed would do SOMETHING.

sent my fuel injectors off to RC engineering for all that they do. total was 154.97 including shipping:

here are the BEFORE and AFTER flow rates (cc/min) and PATTERS for my 6 injectors:

185/187 dripping
146/185 fair
140/184 fair
170/186 good
169/185 dripping
150/184 dripping

all spray patterns were EXCELLENT after cleaning/rebuild.

these injectors had 196,000 miles on them.
