I just ran any fuel injector cleaner though my cars once a year. I've never had a bad injector yet. No special brand in perticular though.

I grab a bottle of whatever is on sale that says 'complete fuel system cleaner'

lately at advanced auto parts ive been favoring the chevron additive, its BOGO and since i have 2 cars it works out well.

ive also used the marvel mistery stuff, usually the big bottle on a full tank of gas.

and i also have used the 104+ octane booster with 1/2 tank left and you can tell it burns a little better

your best bet is to run a cleaner through every now and then, personally i end up using about every 2 months just because.
also the fuel you put in your car is most important. use premium. also dont buy the el cheapo gas. i usually buy shell, theyve just always had reliable fuel IMO and with the new nitrogen its my favorite fuel. next best is chevron or bp. also if a gas station looks all run down and beat up, imagine the shape their reservoirs are in....

1 more thing. im sure you do, but make sure to run the engine here and there. like high rpms with load and all that, it helps break up deposits when its burning hotter.

I use a bottle of Chevron Techron every oil change in all my vehicles for as long as i can remember and never had any clogged injectors or regulators.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

The only one I ever was a performance change from waws sea foam and Z-maz. After doing the engine and fuel additive Z-max makes in my Liberty the gas mileage went from 15.6 to 17.2 which was the first ever recordable difference for me in a vehicle.
