    injectors either work or they dont ,improved mpg from cleaning injectors is bollocks ,modern injectors operate at well over a 1000 bar ,dirt doesnt stick at those pressures

    If you spray it into the inlet, how can it possibly affect the injectors in any way?
    It cant, its just not physically possible as the product doesnt go through the injector at all.

    Its an engine cleaner, not an injector cleaner. At best it will clear deposits in the combustion chamber, if there are any.

    We have used Forte in our cabs to reduce emissions at testing time and it works, but we don't spray it into air cleaner; it is added as a percentage to the fuel and run for a day before going to the test. Millers does exactly the same thing and we have also found that new cooking oil chucked in the tank is very effective too.
