Trying Out the Cyclo Fuel Injector and Carb Cleaner

    As a part of figuring out why Ace hard starts and chokes, a friend of mine suggested trying out a Fuel Injector Cleaner. As you may know, I just changed the timing belts, spark plugs, batteries and even cleaned the distributor but none of it did the trick. So cleaning out the fuel injectors seems like a good idea. Plus, I watched on Discovery Turbo that it adds a couple of horsepower so... yeah baby. 

All you need to do is pour a bottle of it in your gas tank to mix with your car's fuel. As the fuel travels through the engine's fuel injectors, the cleaner does it's magic and gradually gives a smoother path for your fuel. Thus, getting rid of the engine choke. Or at least that's the hope in Ace's case.


    I got my Cyclo Fuel Injector (and Carb) Cleaner from Ace Hardware, Tiendesitas branch for Php 279.75. I was surprised how cheap it is, but it would have been nice to choose from a wide range of other brands for comparison but Cyclo was the only one they had.




    A bottle treats up to 21 gallons of fuel and  I was so excited when I got the blessing of my car guru friend to put it in with my existing half a tank of gas. I didn't want to go through the trouble of making the measurements exact. So I was grinning as I pour it in. Bath time, fuel injectors!





 THE RESULT...

So far, Ace's engine feels a tad more responsive and light. Not a lot though, just a tad. So I guess that's the added HPs? I don't know. But who cares, it's still awesome. :) 

Unfortunately though, it's still hard-starting and the choking didn't go away. :(  So... back to the drawing board. I'm still happy I tried it though. Because I'm sure it did something good to Ace's engine. Money definitely not wasted.

  3. However...upright cleaners usually have more suction power...and that is because the motor is closer to the vacuum head than a cylinder cleaner.
