Fuel Injection Cleaners

Does anyone run a maintenance schedule of their own using injection cleaners ie. fuel additives to keep the injectors "clean"?

I do, I run Royal Purple fuel injection cleaners every 6-7 fill up. Done it to every car/truck I have owned. Doesnt cost much, maybe its just a piece of mind for me.

There is a guy on youtube that does a review before and after on every cleaners out there. He shows the pistons before and after, its pretty informative. I would say theres alittle improvements based on his reviews.

It's better not to put any cleaners.

with first tier gas there is enough additives in there to keep valves and injectors clean. I used to run redline cleaner once in a while but I determine that it isn't necessary once I looked inside a 100k miles head.
