When Should I Use Fuel Injector Cleaner?

Modern fuels can introduce a mix of contaminants and compounds to your engine that affect your performance, efficiency and drivability. If your vehicle is suffering from any of these problems, there is an easy fix. Fuel system additives from Rislone’s labs can clean your fuel system and improve how your vehicle runs. Our advanced formulations are suitable for all makes and models, including gas and diesel vehicles.

How Often Do I Use Fuel Injector Additive?

How often you use Rislone fuel treatment depends on the type and frequency of driving you do. Short, infrequent drives tend to create more buildup of deposits, so if you drive your car infrequently or only on short trips that don’t adequately warm up your engine, you will want to use Rislone every 3,000 miles. This is not necessary per se, but it’s a good insurance policy if you take short, quick trips, or ask your vehicle for heavy-duty performance.

This also goes for drivers who spend a lot of time in cold weather or stop-and-go traffic. This type of driving also causes deposits to form on your fuel injectors and valves, creating power, fuel economy and pollution issues.

If your driving includes a lot of highway driving, one bottle every 5,000 miles is adequate (and is our recommended installation interval). However, if at any time you find your vehicle suffering from any of these problems, consider adding a bottle of our fuel treatment:

  • Loss of engine performance or throttle response
  • Reduced fuel economy
  • An increase in emissions
  • Rough idle or hard starting

Rislone fuel injector cleaner is not only corrective. It works as a preventative measure to help keep deposits from building up in the first place. Make a habit of using a bottle of our gas saving fuel injector additive every 3-5,000 miles and avoid carbon and gunk buildups before they can cause problems for your engine. Many enthusiasts use Rislone to prevent their fuel systems from encountering problems.
