Hello Echo!
Most of the time, Fuel injector cleaners are snake oil! meaning, they dont do jack shit but waste your money!

Premium fuels have cleaners and detergents in them! every time you run through a tank of gas, the injectors SHOULD be clean!

also, I believe your owners manual says to use 91+

I am also skeptical about additives in general, but I do add a bottle of Techron to the fuel tank every 5k miles.

My favorite placebo is a bottle of Sea Foam in the gas tank after every oil change.

From what I've read, RedLine fuel system cleaner has the highest polyether amine (PEA) content (per the MSDS). PEA is what does the cleaning.

If it helps put your mind at ease then I would recommend using the Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner.

Nearly a three year thread bump for snake oil? Why?
