Dealership Injector Cleaning?

Hey guys, I just took my truck in to the dealership for 15k maintenance (oil change and fuel filter(s) change. The service writer said I should have the injectors cleaned. I said no thanks. Does anyone know anything about this service. Is he trying to boost his numbers for the month or is it something I should do? Thanks.

Unless you can physically see the bottle and make sure for certain that alcohol is not an ingrediant in it...then i would say dont even let them bring it up to you again....

Honestly unless its a very high milage truck that gets babied a lot....it really isnt nessicary because the nozzles spray the fuel at such high pressure that even though the tip of the nozzle has some carbon on it...it is still functioning correctly where it needs to. The only thing that will affect it is if it babied and builds up a ton of carbon that affects the spray pattern, and that takes quite a few miles. Ive tore apart 150,000 mile 6.0's...and ive torn apart 10,000 mile 6.0's.....and usually the nozzles look exactly the same....

Thanks. I had a feeling it wasn't anything that was needed. Especially with only 15,000 miles.
