Techron or Seafoam

To keep injectors clean and keep the fuel sending unit the tank form sticking.
Just wondered what you guys thought. My vette has the faulty fuel guage reading problem. It's not an easy fix and very costly. I dont want to have this problem with my new camaro.

Federal law requires injector cleaner to be in the gasoline. Buy a good brand and there should be no need to add cleqaner. Also doubt that would have anything to do with the sensor since it is part of the fuel pump. If you don't use your car often then add StaBil to keep varnish from forming.

Techron is supposed to be the best. It's actually in chevron gasoline. One of the most proven additives, according to what I have read. That being said, I can't imagine that it would help anything to do with a fuel sending unit. It's for injectors and engine deposits.

Agreed that if you use top tier gas, there is absolutely no need for any additive including Seafoam. Especially in a Camaro with less than 100,000 miles.

Seafoam by far is the most superior cleaner on the market. I watched as there were demostrations that put 7 of the best cleaners against each other and seafoam won hands down. One of the best products that do what they say it will.

the sensor isnt part of the fuel pump in every car. it might be attached to it, but its not part of it.
I do agree with you that the cleaner wont do crap to help the gauge
4th gens have a HUGE problem with inaccurate fuel gauges. due to the shape of the fuel tank itself. no ammount of cleaning agent will change the shape of the fuel tank... unless you light the cleaning agent on fire and explode the tank. lol

Neither...it's in your fuel. Use quality gasoline and there won't be a problem.
