Default fuel system cleaners?

anybody use or recommend any fuel system cleaners as general maintainance? I think I read that ford doesn't recommend them for the new coyote motor, and I'm not currently having any issues, I just want to maintain my car as well as I can. any input?

With the 4.6L and the 4.0L (and in my SUV's), I regularly use Techron Fuel System Cleaner at every oil change or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first, as preventive maintenance. If I'm experiencing rough idle or some other issues I suspect are fuel related, I'll use SeaFoam. I keep both on hand as I use these products on all 3 vehicles plus my boat.

Ford's fuel system cleaning is 60,000miles, but that is a REAL cleaning not cans of treatment. A can of Chevron Techron every so often will never hurt.

I was thinking of this http://royalpurpleconsumer.com/produ.../#.UmRpTKIo61t

I guess I'm just itching to do some maintainance, but other than oil and air filters, these new cars don't need much, overall not a bad thing I guess.

Go do some cleaning, take the front end and engine bay plastic covers off and clean those up. Kinda like maintenance.

I love Royal Purple but Nuke is right if that costs more then Chevron Techron there is no need.
