I just wondered what peoples thoughts are on fuel system cleaners....Red-Ex for example? I've got a bottle here and just wondered if it would benefit from chucking a splash in or not to bother?
Thanks in advance,
If it were mine I would want to know that it is in as good a condition as possible before I sent it for service, a good dollop (follow instructions on product) of Sea Foam in the fuel, down the plug holes letting it soak, give it a few pulls every 15 mins with plugs out, then run the engine untill warm, stop engine wait 15 mins, start engine and so on 5 or 6 times it will clean any carbon build up and free sticking piston rings, and clean the carburettor jets so at least you will know that the internals are at least clean.
So in short yes I think it is worth doing
