    Opinions on Fuel Injector Maintenance

    I was reading up on fuel injectors and found this:

    If you are planning on parking your car for long periods of time it is best to remove the injectors and place a small amount of light machine oil (WD40) into the inlets, replace the caps and store them in a sealed bag and dry location.

    I was wondering who actually follows this procedure or a similar one for their ski, who drops their injectors in and leaves them there til they upgrade them or replace them or they fail, and who takes them out for the winter.

    Never did that, on any car or fuel injected vehicles stored for winter....won't do it either in future....never had any problem on them either...to me it's just worthless...STABIL in the fuel will take care of everything.

    I never do either, but wasn't 100% sure if that's the right way to go about it. I upgraded my injectors, but only because of performance needs, not longevity, therefore I chose option 4.
