Chevron Techron Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner???

I was looking for a good fuel system cleaner. My local wal mart has 10oz bottles of this for 7$, but I cant really find any reviews on this particular cleaner. Other chevron injector cleaners and fuel system cleaners I've heard work wonders. Has anyone tried this particular one?

I've used it. My best friend is a Gm mechanic. He says it is the best "through the tank" cleaner.

A lot of people swear by Seafoam. I have used it and like it a lot. It is available in my Walmart.

I've used Lucas, it works well...why not just run Chevron gas? It has the additives in it...

That's the thing, I barley got bought the car in august. It has 93k on it and the previus owner only ran bargain gas. I've been using regular chevron Techron for the past month and it seems to be running smoother but my gas mileage is terrible. 280, on the previous tank and 200 now, and i havent had a lead foot at all... Would premium techron make a difference??? I'm crossing my fingers that this will help.

If the previous owner only ran bargain gas, I would highly reccomend seafoam, 1/3 of a can in the gas, 1/3 of a can in the oil, and suck 1/3 of a can into the intake via the brake booster vacuum line. Do that on about a half a tank then run it close to empty then fill up with some good gas. I did that and picked up about 2 mpg. I don't think premium Chevron will help anymore than their regular stuff. The Shell V Power supposedly contains extra additives that well help clean it out

I agree that seafoam would be your best bet, I put some cheap arco gas in it and notice that everytime i run seafoam through my engine everything runs better and my economy goes up slightly...I have never put it in anything other than the fuel tank but im planning to do a complete 2 can cleaning here soon.

I put 3/4 can seafoam in tank, rest in brake vacumn line into intake. I'm not one for putting stuff in my crankcase except oil

The sea foam in intake sounds good. Where is the PVC valve or break booster vacuum line???

On the left side of the booster as you look from the front. It's the tube that's about 3/4 of an inch around.
