Oh yeah! Doesn't matter the combustion chamber... getting fuel to or into the cylinder remains pretty much common across the board... Bad fuel, old fuel, water, etc all leave deposits... A can every 3 tanks is what I do for our two gassers. The diesel too, every tank, a little something goes in to stop any gelling, varnish, etc... Touline, is the trick

QuikTrip
Chevron
Texaco
MFA Oil Co.
Conoco
Phillips 66
76
Entec Stations

My bad for posting in the inappropriate forum! Anyway, I don't like to use sunoco with my hemi, it seems to suck back the fuel for some reason... and that was even with a tank of ultra 94. I generally just try and fill up with the Mac's gas station stores, which is generally ESSO. I would definitely prefer to use Shell, however there aren't any stations close to where I live or travel.
Still though, what product, or brand make something that is ok to use for our hemi... Do I just go to the store and grab the first cheapest brand name bottle I see... like Penzoil, or something?

Chevron's Techron is a good fuel system cleaner. I would put a bottle in every 5 or 6K miles and never had a fuel system or injector problem after 140K miles on that particular vehicle.

Guess when it comes to that sort of thing, I am a Valvoline Synpower kid. I have used it on older and newer vehicles, and never had a problem.

Ditto on the LUCAS ! I buy it by the gallon @ Walmart.
Excellent product if used correctly,small consistent doses is the trick to using injector cleaners.Most people believe you just dump a bottle and roll for acouple thousand miles then do it again.
To maximize your gain use 2-3 oz every fourth or fifth tank of fuel.
