    Every time we turn off our engine, the last drop of petrol evaporates on the pintle of the fuel injector and leaves behind deposits and varnish. Heat in the chamber bakes the fuel residues and makes it stubborn to remove. This gunk collects on the pintle, and over time it results in injector clogging and leaking. The pintle caps are constantly exposed to fuel evaporation which leaves behind a powdery residue and affects the spray pattern. Usage of fuel additives for cleaning your fuel injectors is hotchpotch solution. It passes through the injector for a short time and makes little cleaning but on the other hand it is harmful for the fuel filters and engine itself. Therefore it is recommended to change engine oil after usage of fuel additives.
    I provide off vehicle fuel injector servicing on the same technology which is used internationally. The injectors are electronically tested, flow volume and spray patterns are analyzed and later serviced with the acoustic technology. The solutions developed for cleaning is aqueous and is higher than PH 7 level therefore it does not cause any harm to the injector. The injectors are checked again for flow volume and spray patterns after servicing and mounted back to the vehicle. I welcome your enquiries on fuelinjectors2606@gmail.com

    all it does is that it removes the carbon and increases the octane content of the fuel. it is even made and recommended by toyota. by the way i tested the one made by toyota and it resulted in a noticeable difference in acceleration. the one thing it does damage is your fuel filter because it dissolves the dirt in your petrol tank which goes to the filter. now there is no dust in new vehicles and in old ones it is almost time to change the fuel filter which is so cheap, no engine damage. i highly recommend it

    the other way to clean injectors is to take them off the rail and leave them to soak in clean petrol. this was done on my rolla when it was accidentally filled with diesel and it restored performance 100%

    Dear margaller I am afraid your concept is not right about soaking injectors in clean petrol. Even when they are mounted on the engine they are soaked into petrol. I have recently gone through an article about problem injectors. I am sure if you will read it, some very interesting new things will reveal on you.

    I personally consider fuel additives less effective and treat injectors with acoustic technology off the car (take them out physically)

    You can use PRESTONE fuel injector cleaner(made in USA).It also contains 0 to 60 octane booster to improve the performance.One bottle is recommended for use in 61 liters of petrol.

    Interesting to know that people are facing this problem for six years and yet all they know is fuel additives...Internationally additives are considered a temporary
    solution which solves the problem to a little extent...Outside Pakistan the injectors are treated ultrasonically. This technology renews the injectors to day one condition without causing any harm to the fuel filters or the engine...one doesn't even have to change the engine oil after this process

    Sir the average should be 10% better on Islamabad roads and Petrol smell is not good.

    Is your engine having proper combustion?
