Well the wall street guys have big bonus checks, but I guess they spend their money other places. I will say this I am purchasing a fuel injection cleaning system for my fuel injected autos & will post the results. Supposed to clean the injectors & intake valves which get sooty after a few yrs or 50k miles or so. I have seen this with my own eyes ...so now I'm gonna see if this procedure really works. The cost of the kit varies, but dealers around here charge $200+ so I figured purchasing a kit myself will be cheaper in the long run. I've got 4 cars that could use it now.

I have noticed the upper part of the intake plenium on my 4.3 has sooted up when I had to change the intake manifold gaskets. I was going to try some seafoam. I use it in my fuel system..............jack

That soot on the intake valves & injectors takes HP & gas mileage away. The soot on the vales absorbs some of the fuel so the computer commentates by injecting more fuel. I'll know how much this helps because write down gallons used at each fuel up...Always have because just by glancing at the avg mph every once in awhile you will notice something going wrong long before it actually breaks sometimes.
