Fuel Injector Cleaner

I have some redline fuel Injector cleaner, was wondering if I put the whole bottle in the fuel filter housing and a new filter if it would be a safe good clean?

I'm not familiar with redline cleaner but I wouldn't fill the fuel canister with it. I would be worried about the lubricating ability of it and scoring injector internals. A lot of us use diesel kleen from power service in the tank as recommended.

I ran Diesel Kleen at 2X recommended strength through each tank. It knocked so much loose it clogged my fuel filter so I would personally recommend that; followed by a filter change and bowl/FPR screen cleaning. Also, if you do use the redline make sure it is for diesel engines. I don't think they make any products for diesels specifically called "injector cleaner". It goes by other names.
