    Carb cleaner in the gas? I'm not sure if that'd do any good or not, plus I'm guessing it'd take a hell of a lot to do any good if it did. Personally, I'd run a can of SeaFoam through it. It's made to clean your gas system and help clean you sled out.

    Ah, I see, I was thinking actual Carb Cleaner (obviously). Yes, you can add injector cleaner if you please. SeaFoam is about the same, but I think it works better than most, not sure why though, but I do.

    Using a carb cleaner or Fuel injector cleaner like thats is like dumping straight solvent into your tank (most of those products are solvent based). It has had the tendency to fry fuel pumps in cars, I would never use the stuff in anything with an engine. Take the carbs off, if they are clean, run them. Putting that stuff in is like kicking off the back of your truck, it works to get it off, but is it the best...no. Just my $0.02.
