    You mean the one you pour into your fuel tank? If that's the one, then there aren't any problems with that.

    I think STP would do.

    market-wise i'm not sure; i'm sitting in amreeka I guess someone in LHR would be able to help you out with that in a little while.

    All Civic models since 1996 are EFI and have fuel injectors.

    I have tried using fuel injector cleaner, but if you really want to feel a difference, get them cleaned manually from the dealership.

    yes,, just learn how to open injectors because yr driving yr car on wrong fuel in Pk, keep spare seals. carburator or efi spray cleaner cleans them best

    or tell the mechanic to open them for you.

    Rather than spending your money on fuel injector cleaners, spend the money on a new fuel filter every year. That's the single best thing you can do to protect your injectors.

    @hassangr8
    How many kms is the car driven? I think injector service is due after 60,000 but I am not really sure. Also check if fuel filter is due for replacement. You should get the periodic maintenance schedule from the dealership.

    I got the injectors serviced twice, both times from Honda Fort. They do a good job.

    Default Disadvantage of using fuel injector cleaners

    Fuel additives are strong solvents. When we pour such compositions to our fuel tank, their first action is to dissolve hydrocarbon scalings from the fuel tank. All the loosen up sediments pollute the strainer attached to the submersed fuel pump and the main fuel filter. Sometimes they are even choked. Remaining dirt flows inside the engine and so does the gunk cleaned from the injectors. That is the reason, worldwide, the auto professionals and websites recommend change of spark plugs, engine oil and filters after usage of fuel additives. They are not very friendly for rubber and plastic components in the fuel pump, regulator and fuel lines.

    Larry Carley an internationally well-known automotive technical writer, says about fuel additives "There may be some risk to the vehicle's fuel system when using concentrated solvent to clean the injectors in place. Most equipment suppliers say to disconnect and plug the fuel return line so that solvent does not circulate back to the fuel tank. Strong solvents may attack rubber and plastic components in the fuel pump, regulator and fuel lines, creating additional problems that you don't need"

    Ultrasonic cleaning is internationally accepted MOST effective process for cleaning fuel injectors. It restores like-new performance of your fuel injectors and makes your engine run on its peak. It is a comprehensive solution which is hassle free and cheap.
    Periodic fuel injector servicing gives you maximum power, best fuel economy, optimized performance, Reduced engine wear, Driving pleasure and satisfaction.

    You can use STP cleaner. Just put it in petrol tank. Tank should be filled more than half.

    No disadvantage. I used it.
