Hey Guys,

I found this to be very informative, and thought I would pass it on.

Thanks Jim,

it is a good read for sure. It is as if the author has been reading our posts and giving us an answer.

Now, what was that new product he was talking about. I think I read the name here on one of the threads, but can't seem find it.

Some people use Techron Concentrate Plus but the GM product says that it cleans the sulfur deposits off Techron does not say that .

Hey Jim,

Read over the Bad Gas thingy. Very informative, and very interesting. (And just when I thought it was safe to go back on the road...)

So, have you any results yet, Professor?

Bob

BTW: I have been using injector cleaner (one can/5k mi.) for as long as I have had injected injuns. That would be since '86. Never had to open nary one of my injuns up, for anything. ( Knock, knock.)

Thanks Phantom,

I will be sure to pick up some for the van and the Monti. What's good for one is good for both.
