Default Injector Cleaner

I was tempted to by some injector cleaner the other day, but resisted because I'm not sure if these things are effective or not, or if they would be recommended in our 3.2 did engines.

Any thoughts, people?

All the big fuel suppliers like BP, Caltex, Shell etc are advertised as having a cleaning agent in their fuel which does the same thing. I usually throw a bottle of injector cleaner in at every oil change, not really necessary i guess but just more out of habit. if your after a good clean, get the ones that need the fuel lines to be inserted into the bottle, but they can get a bit pricey.

I have used liquid moly diesel purge plus and their intake cleaner. This gave a massive improvement in the performance and economy on my ns. I used them both at the same time so if cant say if one or the other did the work.

I've used the Liqui-moly Diesel Purge Plus which requires the fuel lines to be disconnected. Can't say I noticed any real difference so can't be sure how effective it is. At only $18 a can I'll continue to use it in the future I think.

I always recommend using Liqui-Molys Diesel Purge Plus. This stuff is like liquid magic.
As NTBenny posted previously, you remove both the inlet and return lines into the bottle or as what I did, a small fuel bottle with a bigger opening.
In my eyes its a very effective injector cleaner, from my own experiences and from my customers in-store reviews.

The only thing that I would recommend is putting a small in-line fuel filter to catch all the crud that may/may not come back from the return line.


Can pick up both components quite cheaply :

I've been using Chemtech Diesel Power for years on every diesel I've owned.
From old tech Nissan patrol 4.2 D and Mitsubishi Delica 2.8TD to my current Ssangyong Kyron 2.0TD and Mitsubishi Challenger . The first 2 have done over 700,000kms without issues .
The Ssangyong has a very sensitive fuel injection system has been running beautifully for 3 years now. The Mitsubishi Challenger is fairly new to me , but had surging issues when I first bought it . This was cured with the additive .
Now in fairness I must add , I only use good quality fuel , Vortex wherever possible .

How often do you guys do this? I have thought about using injector cleaner for a while now but just never got around to it.

A mates family own 150 interstate trucks each doing 5000km per week and he has a fuel bill of over 22million $ a year yes 22 million $ and non of the trucks ever use a fuel additive or injector cleaner. So why worry ??

I add to every tank ( 1 to 2 ml per litre of fuel )
But if you are having issues as I had with the Challenger and used Delica , I added approximately 250ml to the fill and drive hard to clean the system out .

I may be wrong , but I think a fair part of the problem is the cars just don't work hard enough and choke up . Diesel engines are designed to work .
An auto box driving around the city and suburbs would be in need of a good hard drive .

For $18 and an hour of my time I'm considering using the Purge Plus every 15000ks. I really can't be sure if it works or not but for that little an investment I'm willing to spend the time and money.
