Does Techron fuel system cleaner really work?

Hey guys, so here is the second fuel cleaner test on a car/truck. The first test was with gumout and in this video I test Techron to see if it actually cleans the carbon in the engine.

Let me know what you think.

Yes, it does

I have used Techron for years. Make sure one uses the 'full' concentrate not the diluted version.

I had a corvette fuel indicator gauge that would foul up every once and while and when I used Techron it cleaned it up. The problem was the sulfur in the fuel.

I had a carb get all gummed up on a motorcycle and used Techron (straight) overnight and it came clean and ran like a champ.

Schedule/Routine is to use it after an oil change .....about every 5K miles.

Cool man, I'll watch this when I get home from work. Did you ever do a test on Seafoam on your truck or just the mower? I might do seafoam to my mower now as well.

Also, big thanks to your videos for helping me self-bleed/flush my brakes :)
