Fuel cleaner

Hey there guys and girls it's been a while since Ive been on and now i have a question.

I am still pretty new to having a turbo car and one that runs on premium gas. my question is should use fuel cleaner once in a while to keep everything clean or dose running 93 oct like I'm doing not build up a whole lot of gunk in the system?


Just thought id ask because this isn't a project WRX its my baby and my D2D so I want it to be around and running like new for as long as it can. Thanks

I like to throw a bottle of STP fuel injector cleaner in my gas tank every 30k or so. I do it at the same time as the rest of the factory recommended maintenance so I don't forget. According to my tuner, being consistent with the type of gas you use is more important. I use Shell 93 as much as possible.

ok thanks.. so stp is good then? I used to use lucus full fuel system cleaner in my old car it worked good but i didn't know what to use for my WRX.

I know its off topic but up here in NH i found a shell station and for 93 oct it was $3.60 I thought i was in heaven ahah.

Most fuel treatments are snake oil.

haha... I've tried them all but think about it. There is no magical fuel tank additive that is "end all". These 3 together are IMHO.
