For many GDI engines it may not touch intake valves - any other good for MMO in a GDI engine ?

Yes. All of the other documented benefits besides intake valve cleaning.

Was this actually a not very clever trick question?

Forget MMO.

Use Techron as per directions.

I went to the Marvel Mystery Oil website and I couldn't find any documentation on the benefits. I thought it might be under Downloads, but there was only a screensaver and wallpaper available there.

All I could find is a section titled "Marvel Tales" which is apparently a collection of testimonials. Do you have any links? Don't "documented benefits" require documentation?

From what I've seen tearing down engines that have used it, if I owned a GDI engine it would go in every tank of gas. Then I could find out for myself if it works or not in GDI applications. wink

Your getting into the world of creative marketing. They can document something but not publish it.

Main concern with using anything but Gumout or Techron in GDI would possibly be the sensitive design of the high pressure fuel injectors ?

Read your 2017's owners manual.

Recommends using Hyundai fuel system cleaner - which is Techron.

TEchron works but is slower than I like. I like Redline SL1.....works a lot faster to clean up fuel system.

I'm wondering if a maintenance dose at every tank would be a better approach? Using a cleaner like Red Line's FI cleaner which can be used at a lower concentrate as a maintenance dose product. Techron OTOH doesn't recommend using their product that way. I'd rather keep the problem in check vs. wait 7.5k miles or a year.

I use it in all my cars every 6 months, even since Audi recommended it for my 1989 90 Quattro.
