Did a fuel injector clean and WAX!
had a bee in my bonnet so I got down n durty today

I stick with STP F.I.C and shit I notice it within 5 mins of driving my car, specially the lil BACKFIRES eek haha.. prob shoulda throw it in on a full tank but I figured its been a while since I did it so Id run a rich mixture this time.. Worked great thumbsup

as for the wax, took Isaax <--- laughsilly advice and gave this stuff a try.. Easy on, easy off and good results so far.. I wanna take pics in the sun 2morrow and at night 2night so we will have a better Idea of whats up...Does smell great though grin

Your car looks good. I give you that. I ran through two bottles of Redline's fuel injector cleaner and it didn't do anything except cost me some popcorn chicken from KFC. That's something not to miss with a couple of bisquits, SLAW, potatoe wedges, mashed potatoes and gravy. Damn!!!
With the clean fuel additives these days that stuff is a big waste of money. Especially since I get the best gas and I spent my KFC wages on some injector cleaner. I learned the first time - believe me.

Yes, to the most part. If you have been using a gasoline with additives since you got the car, then you don't need the FIC. All pump gas's have cleaners so it's a waste. Maybe get the FIC every say 50.000 to 70.000 miles if it makes you happy.

I just keep buying the expensive high octane gas. I spend about $3 extra per fillup versus regular gas. I fillup 3 times a month, $9 more.

Thats a couple bottles STP FIC.
