redex injector cleaner - worthwhile?

Post by davidwort on Fri Mar 27, 2009 5:56 am

as title, does Redex or STP type stuff really make much difference over fuel with detergents in anyway?
just wondering, as at 165K my old K jet injectors still seem to have resonable spray patterns (which sort of amazed me), it's been run on mostly shell and tesco 99 for the 80K miles I've had it.

^^^ that'll be why they still have reasonable spray patterns. All fuel has cleansing additives in it the premium stuff even more so. That's why you dont want engines to run rich as the fuel gets into the oil making the oil abrasive leading to premature bearing wear. Adding more additives will do little for a well looked after car.
ONly thing you can do is run them through an ASNU injector cleaner which will make them as new.
