Duralube fuel treatment

Has anyone ever tried duralube fuel treatment for WRX? Don't know if this will make a difference on performance or fuel economy.

Never tried duralube, but I have used gumout complete fuel system cleaner in my car before. Figured it can't hurt to try and clean it ever once in a while.

Duralube was 8/10 in the 'Fuel injector cleaners tests' review below:

Fuel injector cleaners tests - Car Forums and Automotive Chat

This is not required on a new car [13 WRX] and I'd expect only required on an older auto that has injector fouling issues. That being said, it won't likely hurt it either.

Best advice I've read from the performance shop experts is 'use quality fluids'; petrol, oil, brake fluid, transmission & diff, etc. So if you want to show a little love to your fine machine, I'd step up the quality of the fluids that are put in your auto at their standard change interval.

This is a preventative approach.

And this is weird considering that people should be adding this as a maint item.... not a fix.

That's funny that it doesn't even list gumout or Lucas oil's fuel system cleaners.
