you will find that the dealer "injector clean" is like the dealer add on's when you buy a car! not needed and expensive
x2

a 10 dollar bottle of sea foam will clean you up just fine.

I use mainly Shell, Cheveron, or Arco. You know what I completely forgot about the injector cleaner; I used to buy them in a three pack at Costco.

That price is about right...I was told $129 once. Some believe in the dealer injection service and say it improves gas mileage (which it may)...I have yet to believe it or personally see results...and it seems like a lot of $$$ for it as well.

I agree with my bro phantom...I'd swing by an auto parts store first
