How much fuel injector cleaner do you put in a Honda Civic?


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

Use the directions listed on the back of the bottle. Basically it is just a concentrated mix of cleaners and alcohol. You could probably get as much benefit from filling the tank up a few times with a premium high octane fuel. You may want to replace your inline filter before cleaning to remove even more junk.

Filling up with premium a few times is not the same as using fuel injector cleaner, the only between the varying levels of gas is the amount of ethanol in each. Gas quality between brand name gas stations and cheap-o no name corner-stores DOES differ though.  add a comment

Use one bottle of injector cleaner per full tank of fuel. Many of these cleaners contain 'jet fuels' and you could potentially damage your intake by using more than this.

The amount of injector cleaner is determined by the size of the automobiles fuel tank. Once youve decided to use the injector cleaner make sure to purchase a high quality product which includes Techron. Most Honda Civics will only require one small bottle of fluid. Its always best to add the fluid to a nearly empty tank then fill up.

Depends on the cleaner that you are using. Simply read the directions on the bottle of the fuel injector cleaner. They generally have pretty specific instructions on the bottle that tells you how much to put in. I have seen many that you pour the hole bottle in. They are all different.

The injectors need to be cleaned, if an engine is experiencing any of the classic symptoms of dirty injectors, such as lean misfire, rough idle, hesitation and stumbling on light acceleration, a loss of power, and higher hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. I use it every once in a while. Whenever I think about it around oil change time.

Pouring whatever cleaner choose into the TB will NOT clean your injectors. A FI engine doesn't work that way. It MAY help clean carbon build up in the intake, but it wontdo anything for the injectors. There are several articles on various Honda forums on how to use Seafoam to clean your intake.
