Well as good cetaine boost will burn better preventing thick carbon build.

I use lucas fuel treatment. Its meant to create better combustion which in turns lowers the effects of unburnt fuel and deposits around the EGR. I'm not saying it cleans it, I just believe it helps keep a good system as clean burning and efficient as it can be

n.texas I think the gray bottle is for summer and the white is for winter to prevent fuel gelling....
