Just poured a bottle of the GM fuel treatment in mine just now and topped it off. When mine starts to jerk at cruising speed I throw one of these in and within a couple of hundred kms it smooths right out. 20 bucks a bottle though.

I use Chevron Techtron. GM recomends high additve Top Tier gas. It's finally become available at cheap stations in Dayton, Ohio.

Don't know about STP. But your dealer should carry their own brand which is the only one they recommend of course. I suppose STP wouldn't hurt but I really like the ACDelco stuff. It works and I dump one in about every 3 months. Amazon even sells it. Around $20 in either case for any of these.

Thanks..will just ask the dealership...
Most pour in injector cleaners are butyl/amine type of cleaner/solvent. A typical 8 or 10 0z. bottle will help somewhat. There are brands like STP, Lucas, Techron etc. and the Delco product is similar (and more expensive) when you buy it from a dealer. Chevron gasoline has Techron as an additive. Not sure what brands are in your area but Walmart usually has some stuff to buy as does Amazon.
To really clean injectors, a product like Seafoam is added directly to the fuel rail. This is something usually left to a professional.
