    I ran a bottle thru mine when I got it just because I didn't know what kind of gas or E85 the previous owner had put in the tank and was hoping it would clean things out. I can't say that I noticed any difference after running it and haven't run it since. I stick to 89 octane non ethanol gas and the truck runs great.

    thanks for the replies. i was told it cleaned the fuel injecters and some of the carbon build up on the valves. thought i'd try it, maybe now i won't.

    It may be worth a shot. I used Chevron specifically after finding that it was the additive of choice on another Tundra forum. I didnt seem to notice a difference after using it but that doesn't mean that it doesn't work. If you think your truck needs a fuel system cleaning, I say go for it. It may well be $8 or $10 well spent.
