had a bottle of FI cleaner in my trunk. My girl wanted to use my car so I told her to get gas and dump the FI cleaner in right befor the fill. She put it in first then drove to the gas station (few miles) on almost empty.???

It's bad that you let her use your car, And yes it is bad that you gave it to her on empty.

Honestly though, if the car was filled up soon after and it hasn't stalled or thrown a code, I think you're probably safe. Afterall, I think the main ingredient in those cleaners is petroleum distillates-fuel.

I would say you are fine. Not a good habit to get into though. Most of the off the store shelf additives have ethyl-benzene, oxylnitrate, and napthalene in it.

Low BTU materials. Next time ACES IV maybe.

Jeez, he's quick! :laugh:

To the OP- you get about 20+ mpg? Was the gas station less than 20 miles from your house? I wouldn't worry about it at all! ;)
