Injector cleaning

At what mileage interval is it time to have the injectors flushed or cleaned? What is the best method to perform this task? Can it be done at home or is this something that should be done at a service location or dealership?

They have stuff you can put in your fuel tank when filling up and it help to keep the injectors clean.

I'll usually add some injector cleaning before a long drive. I like to run that stuff for hours through my motor to really work any gunk out of the system. I use Redline injector cleaner.

I use Motorcraft Cetane boost/injector cleaner and lubricator at every fill up.

I just purchased some Lucas Injector cleaner for $10.00.. Supposed to treat 3 tanks. My buddy runs it in his 6.0L and swears by it. Lets see what other run

Make sure that stuff is ULSD compatible.

I use the Ford Cetane & Performance improver -- it's good stuff, and now available in bottles that are sized to treat one tank.
