This may have been covered in the past however couldnt find anything.

Just recently purchased a Late 2014 Hilux SR Dual Cab. Perfect condition underneath inside and out.

First time owning a Diesel engine. Just wondering if i should use any diesel fuel additive to clean injectors.

From the service book it has done every single service -  currently sitting on 111000 Kms. Purchased at 107000.

Got it from a Toyota Dealership which they said they done there checks and service on it as well.

If its a good idea to use please advise which one would be best suited (KUN26R)

 

Cheers

Like everything mate they quote THEIR product is the ants pants, honestly I wasn't after any more grunt, used it mainly to keep fuel clean being a Common Rail, Big Big $$$$ if you happen to pick up sh*t / water in the fuel, that's why I fitted a Pre filter to compliment the original,

Got a good size bottle of Fuel Doctor when it was on special @ Super Cheap and only requires something like 25ml to a tank

cheers Conrod

Appreciate this Conrod! 

I was checking out the Nulon Pro strength diesel system clean however I read elsewhere it can sometimes clean too much and remove lubricated components. Sometimes too confusing haha.

I checked out fuel doctor so I'm guessing there's no different one for petrol engine or diesel am I correct? 

I see most other brands have different diesel and petrol cleaners. 

Cheers

Appreciate this Conrod going to buy some when on special give it a go. Been reading its recommended to Shock your engine with 250 ml of it to start with on two to three tanks. Not too sure what the go is here and as to why its recommended to do so.

It used to be that you had to put injector cleaner additive in your fuel to clean the injectors when the engine started running a bit rough and when your injectors were worn out you had to fit new injectors.

A few years ago a lot of the fuel companies were advertising that they were adding injector cleaner to the diesel so your engine runs beautifully. 

Since then I guess all the fuel companies must have put injector cleaner in their fuel as well. 

Because I have had no problems with my injectors for years. I will keep my fingers crossed that my injectors remain problem free😁

Hope this helps and do let me know if you hear any more information on this subject

Well i ended up getting some Nulon Diesel Cleaner  (Nulong Diesel System Extreme Clean 500mm) put the bottle in and filled up - Since then i have filled up with Caltex which i never did on my Petrol Impreza i used to own Stuck to BP however the VORTEX diesel i have been told is the best for Diesel.....

I tell you what there has been an improvement with either the Vortex or the Cleaner as it seems to be running smoother and also seems to have more acceleration.
