    Anyone know where I can get a cheap but well functioning fuel injector cleaner (air pressurized) tool?

    I don't really want to remove injectors :p

    Why not just get fuel injector cleaner and put it in a tank of gas?

    It just doesnt seem as effective... Ive watched several reviews on products and they didn't seem to help.

    Do you have any product recommendations?

    No - but on a different vehicle, yes.

    For general fuel system cleaning, I like Sea Foam. For problem cases, I use Berryman B-12 chemtool.

    Does the Berryman B-12 go in the fuel tank?

    I like seafoam and it does actually clean pretty well for how simple it all is

    Have had success with Texaco Injector cleaner in the black bottle, follow the instructions on the bottle. It is the only one that actually works for me in motorcycle engines.

    The B12 system is a 3 part-er, 1 is in the fuel tank, one is a carb cleaner and one is an aerosol that goes into the running engine. No special tools required.

    Can’t speak to the others mentioned, I bet they’re all solid, but I can say B12 is pretty amazing on a beat-to-hell engine

    Use the spray Seafoam through the throttle body, better way to do it than through the gas tank. Or do both
