    About to do first fill up

    I just received delivery of my 2009 wrx hatch. has 79000 kms. I have a good long 8 hour drive to get it home. My question is in regards to fuel and fuel system cleaners. In my trucks i used to drive i would use a fuel system or injector cleaners that you add to your fuel. Now this is my first turbo motor so I am wondering is it still a good Idea to use these fuel system and injector cleaners. I would use one on every other fill up. I know they have additives that if you use on consecutive gas fill ups can cause more bad than good as the additives can breakdown stuff. Can someone please help me with this. I really have no idea how well the other owner took care of this care. It looks very clean and well maintained. But as to what type of fuel they used i dont know. And it is nearing its 80000 milestone and know that i am taking over I wanna know the better way to maintain these cars in regards to which brands of gas are better, And what people use for gas additives to help clean and maintain your cars internals. I really need a answer asap as i am about to embark on my first long drive with this car and want to start off to the best possible start I can. Thanks all

    A can of Seafoam may not be the worst idea in the world. Use some as a top-end cleaner, and put a little in the gas tank as injector cleaner. I typically do the Seafoam treatment every 30K miles.

    Not necessary every other fill up. Maybe every now and then like EJ said.

    I will throw one (fuel injector cleaner) in today for my first fill up. As i Stated, I really spent all my money on this baby and the warranty. So i wanna do as much preventative maintenance as i can. I would like this car to run nice and smooth as it does now.
    Should i use the 94 oct, or is 91 good enough.
    Thanks for the quick replies!
