anyone ever tried using this fuel injector cleaner. it was recommended by howstuffworks.com as a "one treatment product". please provide feedback if you have any previous experiences with this product.

My dad used to build oil refineries for Exxon and he swears that higher octance fuel is unsubstantial with day-to-day driving (high performance a bit different.)... Likewise, you really shouldn't have to worry about additives for a long time. It takes a while for the longer-term affects of heat and friction to build-up in the engine and that's what additives (are supposed to) help....

to high of octane does not beifit your car but makes a hotter burn. my friends car had a hard time starting after using NOS racing formula with Nitro methan and MMT

I've used the NOS Octane Boost before. I used the "Offroad" formula because it raises the octane up to 7 points or whatever.
I used that and my usual Chevron Supreme pump gas. The only difference I felt was that my car ran much smoother at high rpms and idle. Or maybe it was just in my head. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]
