Why Use a Fuel Injector Cleaner?

4732There are a lot of products you’ll find on the shelf that say they’ll help your car’s performance and mileage.  Fuel system treatments and fuel injector cleaners are popular among these. But do you really need a fuel system treatment? What exactly does a fuel injector cleaner do for your car?

Well, like most things in life, there’s good and bad – formulas that live up to their claims, and others that do virtually nothing.

Your fuel injectors deliver fuel to your engine and are crucial to the performance of your car. The problem that fuel injectors encounter is that most gasoline contains ethanol to boost octane, which oxidizes and emulsifies, resulting in a buildup of byproducts on intake valves and in the combustion chamber of the engine. What follows can be reduced engine performance, higher emissions, lower fuel economy and other negative repercussions. Yes, even with modern detergent gasolines.

A fuel injector cleaner or fuel system treatment is easy to use — you just pour it into your gas tank and it protects your engine against fuel injector buildup while optimizing performance, power, smoothness, idle quality and mileage. The problem is that while most of these products have additives that are great for keeping your fuel injectors clean, they don’t do much to clean parts that are already dirty.

Almost every fuel system we’ve seen is dirty, to one extent or another.

Complete Fuel System Treatment for Your Car

That’s why we recommend our Rislone complete gasoline fuel system treatment. We weren’t first to the fuel treatment game, but we took our time and did our research. The result, we feel, is the best formula on the market, with a ton of R&D cost sunk into it.

This treatment, when added to your fuel, not only protects your engine, but also increases cleaning ability, adds lubrication, introduces an UCL (upper cylinder lubricant) to your system, removes contaminants and helps your fuel stay good for longer. It can also reduce the noise of your engine, stop smoking and increase overall performance and mileage. The Rislone complete gasoline fuel system treatment serves the purpose of eight products in one.

It’s not something you have to use every time you fill up. In fact, we recommend you add Rislone complete gasoline fuel system treatment to your vehicle roughly every 5,000 miles to maximize engine performance and efficiency (we suggest maybe every 3,000-4,000 miles during winter months, to stave off the effects of higher-ethanol winter gas).

To get your Rislone complete gasoline fuel system treatment, start by using the Rislone locator to find a distributor of Rislone products near you. Then, simply purchase your gasoline fuel treatment and add the formula directly to your gas tank. With the extended engine life and better fuel performance you get from Rislone products, you will find they pay for themselves in short order.
