Default What type of fuel cleaner should I get to mix with my gas?

Need your opinions on which stuff to get. Appreciate it!

i usually get a bottle of Gumout fuel cleaner. its about 4 bucks a bottle and it works pretty good. if you go to your local auto parts store chances are they have a whole wall of that kind of stuff. talk to the guys at the store and see what product they suggest. ZMAX is also a great product. its expensive but it works very well. A ZMAX kit will cost about 40 bucks, but it includes a fuel treatment, a fuel injector cleaner, and an engine additive that you dump directly into your oil in the engine. it helps clean out gunk in your engine to restore lost power

I've been pretty happy with SeaFoam.

I get a little Techron every time I fill up (Chevron). A lot of Corvette guys swear by it as it's good for the whole system; tank to injectors.

I dont always run fuel cleaner... but when I do, I prefer Lucas




No shit though, I put a bottle of Prestone Fuel System cleaner in my truck and the very next day my fuel pump went, so I'd stay away from that stuff (it was in Sonoma btw)
