About 12 years ago carbon buildup was causing engine failure. To combat this manufacturers tried to suspend carbon cleaner in oil to alleviate the problem. They were unsuccessful, but to avoid having to ask all those people with oil injection to put an additive in the gas like they did with oil in the old days and inconvenience them they suggested using gasoline with injecter cleaner (Sunoco Ultra and a few others at the time) and to decarborize twice a year. Finally, TCW3 was formulated with the cleaner suspended and I was told that use of that oil was sufficient.
