Anyone know any cheapish injector cleaners?

Bit low on cash due to purchasing my focus on thursday and cambelt change tomorrow , so bg244 is out at the minute, been advised by a fellow forumer not to use redex, so any other decent ones anybody as used and got increased fuel economy/performance etc in the £10 or below price bracket?

Cheers

I used to use and recommend RED-EX but as said already it strips the protective layer of oil from the engine causing premature wear of the internal parts,

so i now use magic bullet, its made using organic solvents that have the same effect of cleaning the engine but not stripping it of oil,

Ta Lenny, Actually I think if you are doing decent mileages, none are needed, as most fuels these days have lots of additives to keep things clean, When I got this present car I ran BG244 through it and never noticed any difference

Thanks guys

i'm gonna go with magic bullet i think

Do you know if using garage petrol is better than supermarket fuel? i know its a few pence more but if it helps the car its worth it , i've heard bad reports about supermarket fuel

Not sure what fuel brands you have where you are mate,
but i always use TOPAZ fuel in my diesel focus, apparently its got tecron in it and it costs 2cent more than any other station but i only fill it once a month so i dont mind paying the extra few cents for the good stuff.

although i used tesco fuel for two years in my almera 1.5 petrol and doing 420miles a week at the time and never experienced any problems with it at all,

Wynns is ok and work on NON-tdci engines like your. For common rail engine it's not that good to put any kind of additives/cleaners, If your injectors get dirty an ultrasound bath is the answer and a right calibration after refit.
