Hope everyone is doing well.... recently in stop and go traffic my car would jerk a little. After a week I decided to go with my trusty Techron Fuel System Cleaner (2 12oz bottles) Every oil change I always follow this maintenance until recently. The next following day I drove the car hard on my way to work and when I hit my a.m traffic no more jerk from stop and go (this is the best why I can explain it)
I've been doing this since the days of dawn. Recommended by a few mechanics and even my last mechanic who worked at MB and now owns his own shop. He told me this stuff works great on cleaning your injectors. It also increases your MPG.
I only pump 93 Shell fyi:

This review is from: Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner (20 oz.)
Believe me ... this stuff really works !!!!
About 10 years ago (circa 1998) I performed an overnight
experiment using three fuel injector cleaners. Techron
was one of them and I cannot even remember the name of the
other cleaners. But, here is an account of what I did:
I took three old sparkplugs with noticeable carbon deposits
and placed them in individual containers and then I poured
samples of the three fuel injector cleaners into the
separate containers to immerse and soak the sparkplug tips
overnight with the separate fuel injector cleaners.
24 hours later the Techron successfully dissolved the carbon deposits
and the other two "fuel injector cleaners" did NOTHING!!!!!
So I decided to use the Techron fuel system cleaner
on my Cadillac with a Throttle Body Injection (TBI)
system -- which was starting to hesitate
on acceleration and had developed an engine murmur.
I was so impressed with the Techron results that
I became a loyal Chevron station customer
(Chevron gasoline contains Techron).
Since my conversion, I have never had problems
with the Cadillac or any Fuel Injection System.
I even get Chevron when I rent cars -- that is how loyal I am.
A few months ago my Mother's Toyota Sienna developed
a similar murmur and I told her to use Techron -- problem
solved with one 20 oz bottle.
My Mother lives in Illinois (Chevron stations are few or non existent)
So, she must use the concentrated bottled Techron.
Later, her truck also developed a terrible murmur.
It was so bad I did a tune-up on it
(sparkplugs, distributor cap, rotor, timing, air filter, etc.)
Murmur did not go away.
Then I poured a 20 oz bottle right before a full tank of gas.
The murmur started to decrease on the drive to the house
and eventually went away.
A few weeks later, my Brother shared his
miseries with his car starting to develop a murmur.
Both Mother and I said "TECHRON" simultaneously!!!
My Brother's problem was solved with a 20 oz bottle of TECHRON.
He said the murmur went away by the time he got home
after pouring the 20 oz bottle on a full tank of gas.
P.S. Texaco gasoline also has Techron in it,
but not sure if available at all Texaco stations yet.
Chevron started the Texaco station conversion in 2005.
