Old saying, "you get what you pay for" holds truth to be self evident. Regane,Chevron Techron, Redline S1, Amsoil -- go with a quality fuel system cleaner and have a piece of mind overall.

Can't find an MSDS/SDS on this product. Need to know if it contains methanol.

I've try everything. Whatever "works" I stay with. I'm fond of Lucas Deep Clean Fuel System Cleaner. A PEA Naphtha brew. It quiets noisy GM 6.0 injectors. And smoothed out the oil fouled Maxima in my sig.

"Dollar Store" and "any good" is an oxymoron.

Its one of the other, Not both.

Get Techron on sale.

On the injector cleaner I agree with you. Not on everything though. I purchased a lot of American XT engine oil and transmission fluid from Family Dollar in the past for vehicles I was working on at home. It was bottled by Warren and had the most modern api specification along with the symbol. Priced similar to Super Tech but the closest WalMart was 15 miles from me at the time and Family Dollar was in town.

I would trust Walmart to not have fake oil. But not Family Dollar or Dollar Tree

like top tier gas injectors have some benefits, BUT NOT for cleaning valves in DI only vehicles!

If either of the Warrens bottled it and it has the API seals on it, I doubt if Dollar Tree (now owns Family Dollar) or even Dollar General would totally fake things. Some mom and pop bodega in Cleveland, that's another story. As far as injector cleaner, PEA is the magic ingredient.

No, don't waste your time. As others have said, buy I quality FI cleaner or don't do anything.

You will likely need CRC GDI Intake Cleaner Spray. Follow the directions.
For the tank, any cleaner with PEA, like Techron Concentrate.
