On my SLK55 AMG, Mercedes recommends Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner. So I use it on the Camaro here and there.

+1 for Techron. I had a 2005 Chevy silverado 5.3 at the time when Ethonal started to be mixed into the gas. Truck started to tick and knock a little at higher RPM's. The local CORNWELL tools dealer was a retired GM master mechanic and after explaining it to him he said use 1 bottle of techron with 93 fuel then use another bottle with 87 fuel and itll clean youre system right out. It worked and actually you could tell a power difference also. Since then thats all I use. I usually use 1 bottle every 5000 miles.

Techron is good stuff, but most of the time I use SeaFoam in the caprice. I have yet to use a cleaner in the 1LE (only 1000mi).

If one uses Chevron gas the Techron additive is already in it. If you want a higher concentration use Chevron gas AND a bottle of Techron.

I use Chevron Techron every 5k miles. Chevrons went bust in our city so I use Shell with Techron. I immediately notice a difference.

My engine tech at the dealer told me to dump a bottle of this in the gas tank every oil change. On the bottom of the bottle is a Chevron stamp.....maybe its the Chevron stuff

Umm, nope, you don't have to use Chevron gas.
