Fuel Injecter Cleaner Opinions

I want to know people opinions on fuel injector cleaner. Does it work? Is it worth buying? If it is what brand?

I have been using the Lucas injector cleaner, I believe it helps with gas milage and good to do every 10k mi. or so. But much better served on high milage vehicles like over 50k-75k+ I see restored power and efficiency when used on a vehicle that it has not had a injector cleanse, however when used regularly though I think it provides little improvement. So a good cleanse maybe once or twice a year I believe is worth the $4-$5

Fuel Injector Cleaners are a SCAM

Name brand gasoline all contains detergents (even Costco gasoline) that make regular fuel injector cleaner treatment a waste of money. No need for it.

Now a periodic fuel injector cleaning is still a good plan. Where the injectors are physically removed and cleaned in a special machine. Cost around $120 -$200.

Save your money for the inevitable "real" injector cleaning service.
