Default Fuel System Cleaner?

On my previous car, i used STP fuel system cleaner about every 3 months. I'd assume its okay to use in the Saab, but has anyone else used it? I'm curious if it will do anything to the turbocharger.

Get techron fuel system cleaner. Comes in a big black bottle-get the concentrate plus. Hands down the best imho and others.

I agree with lms. Techron concentrate, Redline SI-1, Gumout Regane are some of the best. Not sure about the STP stuff.

Where do you guys usually buy that Chevron stuff? I dont see it at Pep Boys, Advance Auto, or Autozone. Is there a chain or a store that carries it in NY state someplace?

This may have been a little effective 20 years ago, but now gasolines have sufficient detergents..

Save you money for the ever higher gas prices..

Any of the above would carry it, I think. Chevron with "techron concentrate". I know you can get the Techron or Gumout Regane at Wallymart.

I use Redline every so often, works better than other brands I've tried IMO.
