What is a Fuel Injection Flush?

A fuel injector flush is performed to clean out the build-up that occurs on your car’s fuel injectors and fuel system. It flushes out the fuel system, making your vehicle run better and more efficiently.

Why is a Fuel Injection Flush Important?

By cleaning the build-up in your car’s fuel system, a fuel injector flush provides many benefits to your vehicle, including:

  • Improves your gas mileage, thus, saving you money
  • It helps to reduce emissions and reduces your carbon footprint
  • It can also increase the life of your vehicle

How Does a Fuel Injection Flush Impact Gas Mileage?

A fuel injector flush can really help your gas mileage as clogged fuel injectors can cause a lot of problems. With clogged fuel injectors, less gas is able to get through, which affects how your vehicle drives. Some injectors may let more gas through than others, leading to an imbalance. The longer this goes on, the worse it gets. The computer in your vehicle will try to adjust by using more fuel, worsening your gas mileage. A fuel injector flush clears this build-up, balancing the fuel system and providing you with better gas mileage.
