Getting More Miles and Power: Using Fuel System Cleaners
Gunk and build up robs engines of performance, power, and mileage. Fuel System cleaners are inexpensive and this article overviews why and how to use them for your new or older vehicle.
Over months and years of driving and after gallon after gallon of gasoline running through a vehicle's system, build up, residue, and grime can clog up a car's system. Most of this buildup occurs in a car's fuel delivery system inside the tank, the lines that run the fuel to the engine, and in the engine itself. For older cars that may have a carburetor; this build up can get directly into the engine itself causing major problems. For cars with fuel injectors, the build up can severely reduce the flow of fuel into the engine, making the engine work harder with the little fuel it is getting.
As the build up and 'gunk' as it's often called continues to clog up the system, you may find that you have the fuel up more often at the gas station, on long trips you may notice you are stopping more for fuel, and might even recognize signs that your vehicle is working harder and harder to start up, keep running, and accelerate.
Many people at this point take their vehicles to a mechanic and may spend hundreds or thousands of dollars replacing fuel lines, injectors, carburetors, even entire engines due to this 'wear and tear'.
With most things however, preventive maintenance is key and cars are no different. By simply cleaning out your car's fuel system you can get back lost power, increase gas mileage, and basically breathe fresh life into your vehicle.
Fuel injector cleaners are often available at many auto supply stores and are made by a variety of companies. The most basic ones simply travel through the fuel system and clean the injectors while more advanced ones may contain different chemicals to clean different parts of the system. Most are designed to safely dissolve build up in the system by blending with the gasoline as the car runs. A lot of cleaners that are sometimes 2-4x the price of the basic ones do the same thing as lower priced ones; the main issue in selecting a cleaner is making sure you purchase the right one. If you have a fuel injected engine you'll need to buy a fuel injector cleaner; if you have a carburetor, you'll need to buy a carburetor cleaner. Your car's manual can help you see which your vehicle has.
Using these cleaners are easy and well worth the few dollars you'll spend on them. Wait until your gas tank is low; 1/4 full or less. Once it is, you'll pour the cleaner into your gas tank until the bottle is empty. For best results you'll go and fuel up and fill your tank with a full tank of gas right after putting the cleaner in. The cleaner will mix with the fuel and go through your system removing gunk and build up along the way.
Recommendations for regular use range from once a month to once a year; but once every 3-4 months may be sufficient for your engine. Depending on the level of build up in your fuel lines and fuel system, it may take a few cycles of this to notice a difference, but never use more then one bottle of cleaner at a time; one is sufficient and again it is not something you need to use at every fill up.
Fuel injection and carburetor cleaners are a great, inexpensive way to keep your vehicle running healthy and get a few extra miles and power out of your tanks of gas.
