RE: feul injectors (-10sp)

Try running BG44K if you can find it.  It is a really good fuel injector
and valve cleaner.  I got mine by swindling a mechanic at the local BMW
dealer into giving me some.  But, various import parts places carry it
too.  Good stuff, and I don't think you have to change the oil after
using it (I didn't).
