    Yes, if you buy a quality one they work. Techron Plus( by Chevron )is probably the best on the market. Seafoam is another good one.

    I've tried RPX and have seen good results from that as well. Harder to find nationally though. It's essentially very similar to seafoam.

    SNAKE OIL, in my opinion, with today's quality oils and fuel, there is no need for any of that.

    studies still show there is carbon build up that you get better combustion if that carbon can be cleaned out. You don't need the cleaner added to a clean fuel system, but when added to an older vehicle, MPG can be raised back to where it should be.

    I have used Seafoam with good results as well. I've also had good results with the BG products.
