Maximum dose of injector cleaner?

Hello everyone!

Stupidly quick question!

Whats the maximum (or minimum) ratio i can use with a bottle of Wynns diesel injector cleaner?

It says use with 1 tank of fuel, but thats a 'bit vague' I want to give the car a good dose, without running into issues!

Any help appreciated!

Gus at Alfatune recommended the following to me:

Run your tank down to about a quarter full. Tip the whole bottle in. Take the car out for a proper 'Italian tune up' until you are nearly empty. Apparently the stuff only works correctly when the engine is hot, so don't be afraid to thrash it like a ginger stepchild.

It's basically an octane booster that allows the ECU to run more advance and a leaner mixture. This will make your engine feel more pokey as a result, but the effect only lasts as long as you've got some 'cleaner' in the tank.

If you want to actually clean your injectors to remove any sediment in the filter and/or varnish restricting the nozzle, you need to get them taken off the car, stripped down, ultrasonically cleaned and then rebuilt...
