    I suppose we all have our opinions and most of these do work but carbon buildup on pistons and the head are difficult to get rid of. We of course can't do the old "water down the carb" trick that worked like a champ in the old days - done with careful thinking of course.

    Mobil used to make a foaming cleaner that worked but it turns out the main ingredients are still available in the commercial injector cleaner. Please check out our ad in the sponsor section. We aren't trying to advertise snake oil, this works folks.

    I've been using Lucas in every tank for years...no harsh caustic chemicals, just a good slow-rate carbon dissolver. FP60 is great, too...
