I just started using this additive and would like to add it once a month ,seems to make it idle nice a smooth. Does anyone else use this product?

I have used it occasionally myself. I do fill up my tank and use only top tier gasoline and therefore personally I have never noticed any difference with or without it.
Once a month seems a bit much but I`m sure it doesn`t hurt anything other than the purchase price either. IIRC the directions say once every 6 months or so?

I forgot what the bottle said ,but maybe every 6 months is reasonable. I just got this car 3 weeks ago, so I figure I would put it in.

I've used this product for years. it one of the few additives that actually works. I just now got off the phone with my regular shop who is cleaning the injectors on my 18 Charger R/T that has an Edelbrock 2650 S/C on it. last fall the car developed a miss on #4. after moving plugs and coil packs I figured it was a bad injector. I first tried the Techron fuel injector cleaner in 1 tank of gas. the car went from setting a CEL on every start to only setting CEL occasionally. the miss I could feel was reduced over 50% . I was worried about a lean condition on #4 so I had the injectors flowed and cleaned and #4 injector did not flow as much as the others but after cleaning it has returned to normal.. I only buy Top Tier 93 oct from the same station and have never had an issue.. I will be using Techron as part of regular maintenance now.

Nice to see a positive reply to the additive ,I will be using this brand of additive as a preventive maintenance!

I have always use nothing but quality gasoline it never had it any problems or needed any additives I to try to be careful to buy at places that I know all their own fuel I think if you are at a location where whatever truck happens to come down the road with the cheapest price please what goes in the tanks in the ground you're taking a risk

Techron’s active ingredient is PEA or polyetheramine. It works well and Top Tier gasolines contain enough of it to keep things clean. (That’s what makes them qualify to be top tier) If you stick with top tier, additives shouldn’t be necessary but good ones like Techron won’t hurt either.

They've been making Techron for a long time. A can of SeaFoam works wonders. I've seen the industrial size with a fuel rail hose and fitting being used in a few service departments,(Dodge and BMW) to clean injectors.

Techron is good but BG $$K is better.

By the grace of God, I was born and raised in the USA.

I've heard what it was like to live under Communist rule. It's simply horrifying. I got it first-hand from some Eastern Europeans and Cubans that I know.

PS: I've given up on the Forum flag.:)
