Default STP fuel injector cleaner safe?

Got 2 of these at discount after buying some other things. Have 22k miles on mine right now and wondering if there are any peeps here who have tried this with theirs and any negs?

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.

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.

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!

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