:feedback:I know there are many choices to use....Lucas, STP, Gumout , just to name a few, but if using one that does the job , which do you prefer? Tend to like using a bottle once every two months. Just trying to find out which would work the best.

I have used BG fuel injector cleaner in the GM products I owned over the years. Seemed to work well but, when I put it in, it was prior to the start of long road trips in which I ran it all out in a few hours of driving. Please note that you DO NOT want to use anything with aniline or toluene in it! These chemicals will eat gaskets and seals if not cleared quickly from the system. My 2 cents....

How often should fuel injector cleaner should be put in? I have never used them, so any information/aide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Probably once a month would do, or every 5th tank of gas. give or take.

Hess, I watched videos of the Seafoam. It seemed like all the people were adding it to their oil, and their vacuum line. I only saw one person just add a can to the gas. How do you add the seafoam to your Challenger? How often should it be put in the gas tank (only) and will it hurt any part of the engine or make a error code pop up? Please advise.


Thanks,
Dave

when I use seafoam , I just pour it in the tank before putting the gas in, again, abuot once every 5 tanks will do the trick.

I use one can for the tank.

David,
Thank you. I just got a can of it and put it in the gas tank. I used a little left on the lawnmower. I hope it helps that. I want to see what the differnce in power and economy in her. Do you know if it makes the car run better?

Thanks,

Since i don't use the whole can at one time, and have used it a little (1/4 to 1/3 can) at a time since purchase (3 going on 4th oil change), i can't tell any difference in ZoSo. I did go from Lucas to Seafoam in my Cummins and found great improvement in both power and reduction in the black smoke. Hope this helps. Let us know your findings.

Hess,
Thank you for your info. I will test Chrisi out tomorrow for the Meet and Greet held every Wednesday. I just got done waxing her and she looks mean and ready to roll! When I take her out tomorrow, I will post my findings here. Take care my friend!

Update:
I put the SEAGOO in the car. I used 3/4 bottle and when I started her up before the car show yesterday, she sounded great. So, I took her out and punched it. The hesitation is gone! I had hesitation until yesterday. It hesitates in the beginning, then gradually faded. Now, I feel much more response from the pedal. Even with the stock exhaust, she sounds like a Hemi. Now there are only a few mods left. I am getting my Mopar Shifter, my S/E emblem for the grille, my nose badge to replace the ram in front, Gas and Brake pedal covers, an S/E decal for the shifter area and finally the Diablo Predator. I talked with a man who works as a car mechanic and he told me to leave the 3.5 alone. He said the chips are no good and to put a turbo or supercharger on it (could) cause major issues with the interior of the block. I do not want to kill her engine. So, my mod days are coming to a close and I will enjoy her and continue to show her off. A man and woman came up to me yesterday and said "You have the best looking car here". That made me feel good! :layrubber: :bigthumbsup: :bigcop: Go Challengers/Mopar Rules
