Default What fuel system treatments do you guys use?

At any part store, you know there is a rack full of fuel system and carbon deposit cleaners, Seafoam, gumout, etc. Wondering if you guys have tried any and what are your favourites? I gave my PT a can of seafoam recently, and going to give it some more seafoam in the crank case before my next oil change.

I have used that Chevron Techron in the past. Never noticed a difference or checked the tech sheet, but they had it at Costco and it has a good rep. I know people here that like Berryman's.

For me, the gas I use has plenty of additives to keep the injectors clean. So the only use for fuel treatment is to help eat up trash (sludge/shellac/organic particulate/alcohol-soluble and mineral spirit-soluble salts) and water. For that I use half a bottom of the cheap red-bottle STP fuel cleaner and half a yellow bottle of HEAT fuel dryer. Most of the time, this does the trick when needed.
