When gas prices go up you might be paying closer attention to how often you’re filling up. Do you notice a drop in your vehicle’s fuel economy? Does your car lack power when you hit the gas? These could be signs of a carbon build-up in the fuel system.
What is Carbon Build-up?
Over time, carbon deposits from burning gas can cause a layer of build-up on your fuel injectors and fuel system. A Fuel Injection Service, (FIS), cleans all the build-up and clears it out of your fuel system.
A FIS is like using vinegar and baking soda in the dishwasher to remove grease. A fuel injection service will remove the carbon deposits and flush the fuel system.
Who needs a FIS?
If you drive a car, make/model between 1990 – 2020, you probably need one! Pretty much all of us.
When does my car need a FIS?
A good time to have your fuel injection system looked at is between 60,000 – 90,000-mile intervals.
If your odometer reads between 60,000 – 90,0000 miles or between 120,0000 – 180,000 miles you will want to get this maintenance. If you plan on keeping your vehicle as long as possible a FIS can help.
Why do you need a FIS?
There are varying reasons to have your Fuel Injection Services:
