This has been talked about many times on the forum, I would suggest using the search function and you will find many suggestions.

I use Chevron Techron system cleaner about every 8,000-10,000 miles. Many people have also suggested using Seafoam cleaner, but I wouldn't suggest using it when your car is below 80,000-100,000 miles. I plan on using it when I get to 80,000 miles. Hope that helps.

Yup, Techron is good stuff. I use it roughly every oil change or so. 5k miles.

I have used BG-44K and is good stuff .. (very strong though).
What does it really do to O2 sensors ???

Sea Foam is another good one .. (strong also).

I like to use Chevron Techron (a little weaker stuff) on a regular basis. About every 10,000 miles (mostly city driving).

Can't get Techron up here, but I've always heard it's good stuff.

This is great stuff, I put in at each oil change:

Amsoil API

I used a small bottle of Lucas Fuel Treatment about six weeks ago after an oil change. I liked the results but I am going to give the Techron a whirl next time.

I use Amsoil Performance Improver. And I can say it does make a difference.
