    Default Fuel tank cleaner

    Over the past few days i've noticed the car isn't as quick at picking up speed as it usually is. I've been thinking it could be because the fuel tank is full of **** and needing cleaned.

    I usually fill it every week but lately it's never been over the 1/4 mark. Going to fill it tomorrow and put in a cleaner, but whats the best one to use?

    I've had the tank and injector cleaner from Halfords a few times, but haven't really noticed a difference. Are you supposed to put the cleaner in before or after you fill up? My tank is just under 1/2 full.

    put the cleaner in first as when you add fuel it will mix quicker than if you add it after you fillup. have you tried filling up with super plus ( or 98 octane) unleaded every forth tankfull. with some engines this makes a big difference. if it does buy an octane booster instead of cleaner and or vary the type of petrol you use, as most of us fill at the same garage regularly try and stick to shell or bp, esso etc i found shell to be better than the supermarket stuff
