Top 5 Reasons Why Fuel Injectors Wear Out

There are several reasons you may not get the performance you want out of your engine. One you may not have considered is a damaged or worn out fuel injector – it’s a massively common issue, and we talk to customers all the time about it. Fuel injectors are one of the great advances in automotive technological history. They are far more efficient than the old carburetor system — so efficient, most drivers don’t even think about them at all, even though they are vital to your car’s regular operation.

When you have engine problems, you may not consider your fuel injectors could be involved. However, fuel injection system problems are more common than you may think, and they can dramatically impact your engine’s performance.…

How to Use Fuel Injectors on a Motorcycle

Our products aren’t just for cars – we have hundreds of thousands of customers using our stuff in boats, ATVs, side-by-sides, and motorcycles.

Motorcycles are a big one for people – they come out in the summer, and they have a culture all their own.

If you’ve had a motorcycle for a long time, the idea of how to use a fuel injector cleaner on it may be a new one (or maybe you use one routinely). After all, traditional motorcycles have worked with carburetors since long after most cars switched to a fuel injection system. However, more new motorcycles work with fuel injection systems, and that number is only growing. If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast, you will want to answer questions such as “How does…

4 Ways to Improve Gas Mileage

With gas prices always seeming to increase during the warm months, we’re all looking for ways to improve fuel efficiency. We’d love to get as far as we possibly can on that next tank. But short of going electric or buying a new vehicle purely based on the listed gas mileage, what can you do?

When thinking about how to improve gas mileage, it’s important to understand what that means. Your gas mileage is a reflection of how efficiently your engine converts fuel and air to the energy that your car uses to power itself. Taking steps to make your car’s engine more efficient should improve your gas mileage. With that in mind, here are four things we talk to customers…

Symptoms of a Bad Fuel Injector

Diagnosing engine problems yourself can be difficult, especially since many problems such as poor engine power, increased fuel consumption and higher emissions can have many causes. In some cases, however, a dirty or faulty fuel injector is to blame. (We know, we talk to customers with this issue every week.)

Modern cars use high-pressure fuel injectors that spray a fine mist of fuel for improved combustion. Even a small amount of carbon buildup or gunk in the injector nozzle can affect this spray and cause engine misfires, pre-ignition and other drivability issues. There are a few ways to diagnose a bad fuel injector that you can try at home, though, before you go to the hassle and expense of visiting a mechanic.

How Much Does a Fuel Injector Replacement Cost?

If you suspect you have a faulty fuel injector, you want to know how much it will cost to have it replaced. While the price varies for every vehicle, the bad news is that in all cases, it’s expensive.

New fuel injectors range from several hundred dollars for basic vehicles up to over $1,000 for high-end vehicles and performance vehicles that require high fuel delivery rates. Some garages will remove, disassemble and clean your injectors, but the shop time can quickly add up as well, with most bills totaling over $500.

Instead of forking over all that cash right away, try a bottle of Rislone Fuel System Treatment. In many cases, your fuel injectors are not working properly because of carbon and gunk buildup. This…
