Don't be fuelled

Asked by Roy Jones

AT A 90,000km service the service manager at my Toyota dealer recommend a fuel injector service for my Camry Altise four-cylinder without a road test. This isn't in the service schedule. What do you think of injector cleaning liquids put in the fuel tank instead of servicing injectors?

IF YOUR car is running well with no stalling or rough running, I wouldn't bother with the service. The service manager is more than likely trying to stooge you into handing over more money for something that isn't needed. An injector clean costs about $100. As for fuel system cleaners, my view is they can be effective if you use them regularly, but they don't work so well if you use them only when there's a problem. They are more a prevention than a cure.
