I haven't tried it on mine. Read the manual. If I'm not mistaken, it recommends not using any additives to the fuel.

it is safe as long as you dont use it in your car. modern fuel injectors dont need none of that crap to stay clean.

Don't use it...I've heard of 2 motors (not ford) ruined by that stuff. As mentioned above the new motors don't need that stuff. Just do oil changes and regular maintenance.

'14 GT Premium Race Red...6spd manual...3.73's...Steeda A/B's...Steeda CAI...Steeda Gus dialed in tune...Forgestar CF5's + Dark Stars out back...Nitto NT555R's...many more mods on the way...

(Sold) '11 GT Kona Blue...6spd manual...3.31's...Steeda CAI...Steeda Gus tune...Lethal O/R X...Corsa Sport A/B's...Enkei PF01's...etc etc

My rule of thumb is if the manual doesn't say you need it, you don't need it. A lot of this stuff is just a marketing gimmick to drain your pockets. Even some dealers offer maintenance services that are not listed in the severe service maintenance section of the manual. They want to make money too.

I'm tired of shows about vampires. I want to see killer umpires!

Agreed, if anything have the dealer perform an injector maintainance cycle.... unless you generally fill up with pretty crappy gas,you have nothing to worry about. I do not trust those "miricles in a can" products,ever!

2011 GTCS Candy Red;Premium leather interior package, Remote start, security package, upgraded speakers, 6MT 3:55. 35% tint all around, Borla "S" axle backs, & clear corners.
The rest is all FORD

I've seen many mechanics recommend the Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner. A bit more expensive, but has a good reputation.
