It shouldn't be necessary if you run a top tier fuel. But, if you decide to run an additive anyway, I'd suggest Chevron Techron.

It is 100% necessary on the ecoboost. The ONLY product that works well on the ecoboost is Chevron with Techron as mentioned. Don't bother with anything else. You should run every 1k miles to keep things working.

Somebody with more experience can help out on this one, I have been told that Ecoboost motors do not like Sea Foam cleaner, that it will destroy the turbos.

Is this true and should the gen 2 community avoid it?

I love it for my gen 1, I run it through every 5000 miles, nothing works quite as well but read up on it for the gen 2 engine before trying it out!

We do not recommend or perform fuel cleaning systems on Eco Boost Engines at our dealer

I assume by Chevron with Techron you're just referring to the actual fuel you buy at the gas station correct?

So to be clear no fuel additive should ever be used? I used to use Red Line Products in all of my V8 and it was wonderful, I was just getting ready to add some so this thread is Timely.

Thanks in advance for complete Clarity LOL

No, run the Chevron with Techron fuel additive only. The ecoboost needs this quite often. This is what the gen1 ecoboost people swear by.

Yeah just get gas at Chevron lol. I think other additives mess up the turbo. And ignore the resident hater, we don't exactly know if he owns a raptor or just doesn't like raptor people hahah.

This is the only safe product to use. Recommended interval is every 1k miles so that performance is not degraded. This has many years of safe use on the ecoboost and what its owners have to use.
