Default Is BG 44K still the 'injector cleaner of choice'?

I remember debate a while back between BG, Redline and Chevron. Anyone looked into these products recently?

Default BG44K works better than the Chevron IME. I haven't tried Redline.

Default Either is good for you....

The pool or the pond


Just remember, do this BEFORE you change your oil as it gets into the oil via blow-by and contaminates!

HTH,

Default Ditto. Tried it on my 98.5 at around 55K and thought it worked better than Techron. JMO

Default Just for injection cleaning. Felt a little more pep in my car during and after use.

Default I use Redline regularly. You have to be careful not to use it in high quantities.

You should use a low mixture ratio. I put usually about 5 oz's of the SI-1 in each gas tank. If you put too much in and don't run the gas through your system fast enough, you can run the risk of having your gast tank sock being eaten (so previous posted articles have indicated). I personally put about 10oz's in on the first use but it was during a long trip and I used an entire tank in one day (I've been told this is safe).

I've used Techron and every other off the shelf gas additive and nothing compares to Redline. Redline does act like an octane booster too, but after it was out of my fuel system, the car did run smoother, but granted I have a high-mileage 2.8 12v engine. I recommend Redline SI-1 (FYI: SI-2 is a higher potency of SI-1 in a smaller bottle).
