Using STP Fuel Injector cleaner

Hi, I have used STP Fuel Injector Cleaner (Not Injector/Carb. Cleaner).

Im experiencing reduction of power or so.

I threw STP in the full tank of Sunoco 94 Octane and after 100km(+- 50) of running, the half of the fuel is gone!

Is this normal?

Any reply will be appreciated. Thank you.

I don't understand what you're saying. It used more gas than normal ?
I use Cheveron Techron (the black bottle) with a full tank of gas. I see no reduction of power and no excessive use of fuel. I'd keep an eye on the performance with your next tank of gas. See if the power comes back and keep an eye on the mileage.
