Exclamation Meth Tank with Techron

I have been thinking if it is possible to Techron in the meth tank to clean the input valve.
I wonder if it is doable. Insight anyone?

Dont quote me on this but the additives will probably wear out the seals on the pump

Meth is just as good at cleaning as kerosene (that's what Techron is).

Edit: Wait I just realized that you're trying to clean intake valves with it. Won't work.

KyLu is right. Don't put Techron, a petroleum based product, in your meth tank. Even small amounts (like sharing a funnel previously used for gas) will contaminate your pump and cause the internal seal to shrink and fail.

Thanks guys. I guess there is no other way than rubbing them from time to time. :
