I don't see why not. I would recommend something like Techron if you really think you need to use a cleaner.

I am using the BG 44K Fuel Injector with amazing results, only need to use this once or twice a year, read the reviews and judge for yourself.

Scotty, did you ever try any other cleaner before you settled on the BG-44 like the Techron products?

Unless you use third world country gas there is no need for cleaners, or if your engine has blowby and alot of burned gas gets on injector heads.
Your fuel consumption issues is not from dirty injectors....a dirty injector will squirt gas not spray, your idle will jump and the engine will not run smoothly plus in a month your oil will be black and like water because the gas will wash up in the oil bay.

Yes I used Techron didn't notice any better fuel economy or acceleration.

I also recommended using top tear gasoline brands . I switched over to BP from using Citco better Mpg and performance.

Here the story on top trear Gasoline.
