If you use TOP TIER gas you don't need any cleaners.... this stuff has all that's required for direct inj. engines.My crv ‘17 is brand new 4.3k mileage, and it had the first maintenance on March 29, 2018. Should I put a bottle of fuel injection cleaner? Some people said pour some every maintenance.
Yeah Techron is good stuff, you can actually feel a difference after you make a long trip with gas that has it added in.
Yes I would think that if they are small enough to get by the rings they have pretty much turned into liquid carbon slush just like everything else that makes your oil change color. My thinking is that if a particle is small enough to pass through the filter it will not harm the engine.If they are dissolved then they are just like any other contaminants that get into the oil, which is why we do periodic oil changes.
And, if used regularly, there will be less build up in the cylinders, which means fewer contaminants. JM2C
Actually sorry but your thoughts on are 100% false to the point that there is 0% chance of this causing an engine problem. And any particle that makes it past the filter is no different than all the metal filings and carbon from the crankcase caused by normal operation.Some dissolved, some simply suspended. Either case I think it’s a valid concern to think about it possibly moving fixed particles into the oil stream.
Are there any concerns around techron concentrate/etc. perhaps dislodging larger chunks that might be harmful to the turbo? I've used Techron concentrate (complete fuel system cleaner not the injector only type) but have some reservations in the 1.5 given some of the discussions around using it and the turbos. Granted some of that was focused on Ford's new turbos but it's given me pause about just pouring a bottle in every once in a while as I've done in the past.Actually sorry but your thoughts on are 100% false to the point that there is 0% chance of this causing an engine problem.

You would be speechless if you saw engine oil coming out of an engine versus new under a microscope. Guess why engine oil gets dark. Carbon, same crap that would make it past the rings and be dissolved into the oil.
