I have been trying to find a good fuel injector cleaning system.
What do you guys recommend, and whats the best way of maximising the effects of a cleaning system.

Thanks!

I use and recommend a product from BG called 44K
http://www.bgprod.com/bgdistloc/44k.html
and can be purchased at your local Nissan dealer, Napa, or better auto parts stores. I recommend adding it first and filling the tank with premium fuel. Run out the whole tank full and change the fuel filter preferably with a genuine Nissan. That should clean it out and recommend doing it annually with a regular tune up.

Avoid cleaners with alcohol. Products I have used and recommend for occasional cleaning (maybe 2 bottles per year) are:

Red Line SI-1
Chevron Techron
Schaeffer Neutra 131
Fuel Power (by Lube Control)

I have used many different ones and I have the better results with the BG 44K. It cleans more of the intake and exhaust path as well as a fair cleaning of the O2 sensor and catalytic. The 44K is about $20 retail so it is not cheap but I haven't found cheaper products as effective. The premium fuel maximizes the effectiveness and I always recommend changing the filter because it cleans gunk out of the tank too.
I am not totally stuck on the BG products...
The Valvoline SynPower Performance System (3-part) works very well

And the Valvoline SynPower Complete Fuel System works pretty well also.

I have found the Greased Lightning Fuel System concentrate would be a good choice also since they are good cleaners and cost between $12 and $15.

The key component to avoid is methanol (wood alcohol) but ethanol (grain alcohol) is ok but alcohol-based products don't clean very well in my experience.
