fuel flush and decarb the oil?????

I have an 08 6.4l with 31000 miles on it. The shop recommended that I do a fuel system flush and decarb the engine at the next oil change. Has anyone heard of these things and are they good or just a money maker for the shop. It is not Jiffy Lube but the dealers fast lane quick lube center.

More info please.
I can't imagine what they plan to do to the fuel system. On the engine are they going to do a cleaner in the oil prior to a change? How much of your cash do they want? I'd like to know.

Never heard of either one bud. Just change both your fuel filters and oil and oil filter. I don't trust shops that change the fuel filters because most of the time they don't change it or don't change the frame rail one. But if you decide to let them change the filters, make sure you watch them change both fuel filters.

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
