    What's a good diesel fuel injector cleaner? No, none of those fuel additive stuff :p Something that can clean Nippon Denso injectors and also test spray pattern and flow rate? How much?

    Can the same tool be used for gas injectors too, like 1FZ-FE and 2UZ-FE?

    ... due to the cost of these type of tools, i have found it is far more economical to remove the injectors and take them to a diesel mechanic to be tested, cleaned, and overhauled if necessary.

    My opinion only ...

    you really dont need to do it often enough to have a tool yourself especially when getting a diesel mech to do it is so cheap. Unless your doing it for multiple cars and your friends. Buying something like those is a lot of money and work for a once off.
