Has anyone used this stuff on their di

Has anyone used this stuff
Power tune. Engine cleaner.
I was advised to order some of this stuff to tune my Evinrude 150hp di engine, However it only gives instructions for use with carburetor's saying you should spray in the carb throat. Can it be used with direct injection, And is it any good anyway, It cost 16.
Cheers in advance for any advice you can offer.

Just spray it into the air intake, I've never used it so can't comment if it's any good or not. Let us know how you get on & if it makes a difference.

It is great. It's also rather good for component cleaning when you've got carbs stripped.

Thats typical me findind the most expensive, Cheers TD will purchase with you next time.

That's Great to hear some of you've have had good results, So after warming engine for say 5min in gear, Then back to neutral and I just slowly spray 2/3 of the tin in through the air intake as Dave suggests at about 1200 rpm,
Then increase rpm to 1600 to 2000 rpm and they say stall engine, I take it by spaying the rest of the tin flat out will stall engine, Am i right by assuming that's the way to stall engine.
Then it's back on with the engine lid allow to soke for 20 min and run engine at full throttle in gear for 5 min, Of which will all have to be done on the water rather than useing muffs, I must remember to check harbour activity before doing this, As I can't see the harbour master being best pleased if I go screaming past a something hundred ton tanker in mid channel maneuvers.
Much appreciated info guys least I know it does work.
