A friend who races vintage cars asked the guys who flow tested and rebuilt his injectors for one of his cars how often you should run cleaners such as seafoam etc through your fuel system. He was told to keep it down to once or twice a year for maximum injector life. More often than that they see a definite shortening of the life span of the injectors. Apparently you want them clean enough to function properly but over cleaning causes a new set of problems.
Whoever they were they have a good reputation or he would not have sent them his injectors. He is pretty fussy about that stuff.
Myself, I store most of my injected vehicles for the winter or summer so I just add a strong dose of seafoam to the tanks of whatever I put in storage. Run it till I am sure it gets through the fuel system and call it good. Doing it that way has greatly reduced my work load when taking the vehicles out of storage. They fire right up and run good. All is good.
