None.... I have tried darn near every one known to man and all I got was a lighter wallet. If you pull the MSDS for the products you will find that about 98% of the ingredients are kerosene, naphtha and 1% to 2% of a proprietary ingredient.

Techron might be the only one worth anything. But, to get the correct ratio in your tank it will cost more than it is worth. You would be better off running the cleaner directly to the fuel rail via the shrader valve.

If you really want to clean the fuel injection system out, have your engine serviced with a MotorVac. It hooks in to your fuel lines and uses a mix of gasoline and detergent to clean out your injectors...it works wonders on a dirty system! Maybe call around to some local shops to see if they have one of these machines.

Motovac is probably the way to go... Before you have it done ask yourself do I really need it as it can get a bit expensive.

There are no other products that are recommended by Workhorse to be used in the fuel system.
