hi, I was wondering what type and brand of fuel injector cleaner really boosts gas mileage on your personal experience. How much of an improvement? Thank you!

RE: fuel injector cleaners

Fuel injector cleaners only work if the injectors really needed cleaning. A problem may exist elsewhere. I have used a product by STP with success.

Whatever you use, make sure it is rated not harmful to catalytic converters and oxygen sensors.

RE: fuel injector cleaners

I had a stuck injector in our Dodge a couple years ago. Got some cleaner with the chrysler brand from the dealership to assure compatibility with the fuel system. Had to add the stuff to a couple of tankfuls to fix it for good. Now I add a bottle of Techron a couple times a year. They put the stuff in Chevron gas so I figure it's safe enough.

Ditto jemdandy. If the injectors aren't dirty, there's nothing to gain gas mileage wise.
