Will Fuel Injector Cleaner hurt my Generator?

I always run Chevron Techron Fuel Injector cleaner through all of my vehicles fuels systems and I want to do this with my MH as well but am concerned if it will harm the fuel system of the generator, a Onan 5500 Gold series. Anyone out there have any past experience with fuel injector cleaner?

I also run fuel cleaner in all of my rigs. My MH is a diesel and I also use injector cleaner in it and so far the generator has not missed a beat.

It will only help keep the varnish from building up on the jets in the carb.

techron and the rest of those snake oils do nothing but drain your wallet. Seafoam would be the only chemical Id add.
Actually cheaper to make your own Seafoam if "pouring your troubles away" makes you feel better.

I have a DP and I don't use anything in it at the moment. However this is what I will say about Techron... Most of the gasoline you buy at the pump has a lot of sulfur in it with a few exceptions like Amoco. I used to have trouble with the fuel gauge in my 2000 corvette until this guy told me to add a bottle of Techron every 4-5 fill ups. It worked like a champ. I still use it in my 2006 corvette. I'm not sure exactly what it does or how it works all I know is that it works to counteract the high sulphur content in today's gasoline.
