I need to used only Techron only I know redline which Can be used every fill up.I have Techron concentrated or gum out regane with pea because I have have in my stash which I get from autozone clearance. Did using every fill up will damage anything . Only thing I have know that donít used more than 5 treatment in one oil change intervals but which apply for concentrate treatment only. Every reply and will help .

Are you trying to fix a problem, prevent problems with the fuel injectors or something else?

It won't hurt anything to run it all the time except your wallet.

Personally I use top tier gas most fill ups. I use a fuel injector cleaner twice a year. There a millions of drivers that don't bother and they appear to be having cars that run without major issues.

The concentration in top tier fuel is much less concentrated than that. Maybe a half a cap full at each fillup. Or just a shot on the tank before a oil change.

you really dont need that much unless you are burning sketchy fuel.

I donít see it being an issue. But the bottle does say use 3000-5000 miles. I use it 2-3x year usually when I do an oil change.

Hurt? No.... Help, probably. But if you buy top tier fuel it should be unnecessary.

Run a tank of top tier fuel and call it good. Plenty of cleaners already in it and adding even more is probably not going to make it clean any better.

I'm assuming you're asking if there's a comparable strength product that treats 20 gallons of gas(?)

You don't mention any specific issues, so I would probably start with the likelihood of the effectiveness of small doses each tank versus a main treatment every 5K miles. If you're using quality detergent gasoline, I would think the idea of small doses would be lost and effective preventative maintenance would center around using a full treatment dose at 5K or 7.5K miles, etc.

You mention Techron, Regane, and Redline SI-1. If you wanted to do use those products, I'd use them periodically at full strength vs. thinking I'm giving any consistent benefit by putting in a very diluted treatment amount each fill-up.

Tip Tier gasoline already has cleaners, how much, what concentration, enough to make a difference, I don't know. Does anyone?

However, unless you have been using Top Tier since the vehicle was new, IMO I prefer to put it in full strength periodically. I think it would do more good that is a better job cleaning.

Here is what Red Line suggests for continual use of SI 1:

https://www.redlineoil.com/Content/files/tech/S1-1%20Tech%20Info.pdf
The treatment can be reduced on subsequent fillups to 1/3-1/6 oz per
gallon
(one bottle to 50-100 gallons) to provide continual injector and valve cleanliness.


1/4 oz per gallon would be 5 oz to a 20 gallon tank.

And when you tore apart the fuel system and engine, how did they look?
How much performance and economy had you lost over that mileage that could have been kept if a fuel cleaner had been used?
