I wouldn't spend a dime on any of that crap. The fuel that you buy has "fuel injector cleaner" already in it. If you feel that they are dirty, take them out, box them up, and send them to a professional who has the equipment to actually clean them properly...

The alcohol in the gas clogs them up. Fuel injector cleaner actually helps. A lot. In our old pontiac dad had to tear the whole top end of the engine apart because that alcohol and ethenal clogged it. The fuel injector cleaner in the gas doesnt do anything.

Quite the opposite. The alcohol actually CLEANS the fuel system. The problem that you saw on the "old Pontiac" was the fuel blend cleaning years of gunk and depositing it in places where it could cause problems. Alcohol DOES have it's problems and can cause all kinds of issues on older cars. That was not the OP's question though.
I'm standing behind my original statement. You're wasting your money...

Its only $3. If it makes him feel all warm and fuzzy inside then it's not a total waste.
