I've used both Seafoam and Lucas with great results. I've also heard Techron is very effective, and even STP.

Pouring whatever cleaner you choose into the TB will NOT clean your injectors. A FI engine doesn't work that way. It MAY help clean carbon build up in the intake, but it won't do anything for the injectors. There are several articles on various Honda forums on how to use Seafoam to clean your intake.

To clean your injectors, simply pour your chosen cleaner into the fuel tank. Fill the tank to ensure mixing, and drive the car. I wouldn't refuel until you get to 1/4 tank or less.

Professional shops do offer fuel injector cleaning services. These vary in effectiveness. If you go the professional route, I'd stick with a Honda dealer, or an aftermarket Honda shop.

Try using Seafoam. Pour it lightly into your throttle body and then take the car out for a spin at wide open throttle. You will get a ton of smoke, but that's normal.

Clean fuel injectors are important in keeping an engine running smoothly. To clean the fuel injectors a person can take them out, clean them off, and by adding a cleaning agent to the gas tank to clean them from the inside out.

The average cost to clean fuel injectors is about $150. Fuel injectors are used to deliver fuel into an internal combustible engine.
