Pretty much all gasolines from the major manufacturers will have additives (cleaners, detergents) to keep the fuel system clean. If you continuously use fuels from the major gasoline manufacturers than utilizing a fuel cleaner additive will yield little to no results (unless you convince yourself that you can "feel" the difference because you've spend the money)

Also, a lot of these additives target cleaning the injectors and the valves. If you have a DI car there will be even less returns since the fuel will never come in contact with the top of your valves in the first place.

fuel refineries meet the MINIMUM standards. Have you ever burned gasoline on a petree(sp?) dish? It leaves carbon residue. Do you have black smudges on your exahust within a few days of a wash? It's because the fuel isn't burning completely.

Additives are used to alter viscosity, flash point, cetane/octane, evaporation, stability, corrosion, etc. Look up the World Wide Fuel Charter and then tell us that additives are bad.

Every engine manufacturer has signed it in agreement that there is large room for improvements in fuels.
