I have noticed exactly the opposite as you with these products. I see about 2 mpg more with Power Service. Oh well, who knows? I just go with whatever works best for me.

no it's dinosaur oil distillates (hopefully) ...

are the injectors dirty? how do you know it's done ANYTHING after use?

is the powerplant behaving badly? why do u think the injectors need a bath?

the thing about injectors is IF they really get dirty/plugged fouled, HOW DOES the magic stuff get to them?

dirty injectors can be removed and professionally cleaned (some that is) and it's not that expensive...

there are companies that specialize in doing just that (with hi tech cleaners and sonic stuff) and then TEST them for function.

will it hurt to put some in YOUR tank? probably not, or maybe so.

but think about it...

1. the cleaner starts in a big tank (maybe dirty)
2. then goes through the fuel lines and pump (maybe dirty)
3. then goes through the fuel FILTER (definitely dirty)
4. then back into lines (more dirt) before reaching the INJECTORS...

so what happen to the crap it ran into on the way to the REALLY tight tolerances of the injectors ????

lucas is a big time event sponsor but their products aren't really all that good...

((have you looked at the msds for the specific product u purchased?))

we do love our magic soups!

cheers
