            Mercury (quick silver) Quickleen is the best I've ever used. It's expensive but it works great.

              what was the gas contaminated with?

              using premium isn't going to do anything but hurt your wallet, so don't bother with that.

              if i were going to do anything, i'd run it down to about 5 gallons of gas in the tank and dump in a can of seafoam or marvel mystery oil and run it down to near empty. i suspect that any top end cleaner would work, really.

                  so...........without breaking down your engine and examining your injectors.........and assuming you would recognize damage if you saw it........and then A/B'ing that against another set of injectors (that has had similar useage) that used another cleaner.......and, of course, you'd need a third set of injectors that used no cleaner at all for baseline.........how does one say one brand is "better" than another?

                      Can't say which product is empirically better, but I've used SeaFoam with reasonable success, and have had less success with other products. At one point, I'd pulled a rack of carbs twice, cleaning them by hand each time, still having little to no luck getting a problem motorcycle to run right. At my Dad's suggestion, I reluctantly ran a can of SeaFoam through the gas tank - and the bike ran like a top. Can't say it's the best, but I can say it works.

                        Most modern gasoline formulations contain sufficient detergents to render regular fuel injector cleaner treatment superfluous and a waste of money. Adding treatments prior to 50,000 miles is a waste of money. Most fuel/oil additives on the market are, simply put, garbage. Chemically, most Injector Cleaners are mostly kerosene. The better injector cleaners are either stoddard solvent based or a PEA. BG 44 has both stoddard and PEA in the mix but is not near as concentrated as it once was. BG sell their products through repair shops, and the technicians, service advisors and managers get kickbacks for everything they sell. BG puts a proof-of-use device, usually a plastic disc, in their cans. The tech collects these discs and trades them in to the BG rep for cash. Each disc is worth one dollar. BG

                          It's also a good idea to use a top tier fuel such as Chevron, Texaco or Shell. If you don't use a top tier fuel, then you want to use a cleaner every 3,000 miles. Replace your fuel filter every 30,000 miles, if possible.



                          Curious as to why that is? My friend works at a local fuel depot that distributes fuel to our region (unloads off ship to huge storage tanks).

                          From what happens around here....there really should be no difference in contaminants in reg vs premium fuels....and that is afterall what the fuel filter does...it captures particles of dirt in the fuel.....I would hazzard a guess that the vast majority are dust/debrise from fueling up and rust particles from condensation caused rust inside the gas tank.

                            Seafoam is the best product I've used. If you've ever torn down a motor you know the pistons get baked on black carbon buildup. An engine that's had regular treatments of Seafoam will look very clean compared to one that hasn't.

                              so do you just dump seafoam into your gas tank?
