First time running Techron through the fuel system...33k...wow.

So after reading everywhere about how incredible Techrons fuel system cleaner is (not their cheaper fuel injector cleaner) I decided to put some in my tank two days ago on fill up (20 gallon treatment).

I was experiencing some rough idleing prior in the SRT, but I know compared to typical cars they do "rock" (shake the car) more due to the cam according to SRT.
Anyway, mine felt as if it was rocking a lot more than usual\not very smooth, I could easily feel the car "shake" me when just sitting in traffic, so basically idle in general, driving otherwise it was perfect. So far I'm about half a way through a tank maybe a little more, and WOW. In traffic it idles SO much smoother now, before it felt like a rough cam kinda going down and up down and up with or without A\C, it just seems to run so much smoother now and the treatment isn't even done.

I waited until my tank was pretty much completely empty, then poured the Techron in, then filled up with 93, then drove it pretty hard, I'm still amazed at how quickly I have noticed a difference, maybe it just sucked up all the Techron at the start, either way, USE THIS STUFF, clearly people aren't making this up.

Do a Seafoam treatment also, will clean up your intake. Glad to hear you have good results.

Someone on here said that seafoam would eat your seals up, I've not used it on my challenger yet, but love it in my older cars

Us vette guys use Techron every 6-8 fillups or at least twice a year.

Just want to add what I was told about the Techron many years ago. I was told NOT to use it on a long trip for maximum effectiveness, but instead when you would have a lot of short trips around your local area, with several hour or overnight rests in between. I was told that the process of soaking into any grime during the rest periods, and then burning off when running made it most effective. So the resting period is as important as the running period for cleaning things out. Makes sense to me, I'm just repeating what a mechanic said, but maybe someone here knows more.

How was the performance the tank after the treatment? That is the real question.

Every Spring I put Techron in my SRT and Viper. Chevron gas has Techron in it. If there's a station in your area I suggest filling up with it once a month.

I only fill up with Chevron, however the amount of "techron" is negligible from my understandings, you don't just put Techron gas in and expect it to work like the fuel system cleaner :P. I haven't gone through the entire tank yet so technically it is still being treated, I plan to run another tank of Techron after this next fill-up just to make sure everything is clean and dandy, my intake I think is fine...I cleaned it with mopar T\B cleaner\intake cleaner and wiped it down before I installed the CAI
