I've got an old Toyota that won't die, but does have a persistent P0420 check engine code which points to the converter.
I've used this stuff from Costco on the highway annually, just before State inspection, to clear the code. Full jug to a half tank gas (9 gallons) worked and been doing the same since annually.
I don't know what this snake oil is, but it does do something.
Have noticed the light comes back on after driving through slush or a flood... seems anything that rapidly cools the converter throws the code and it sticks.

All these "magical" fuel injector cleaners are a blend of xylene, toluene, and probably hexane or pentane, which are really strong solvents and will dissolve most polymeric plastics, which are now commonly used in the fuel supply systems.
The older ones may have had tetrahydrofuran which will "digest" pretty much any polymeric plastics.

I picked mine up yesterday, and they are exactly the same ones as in the OP link . It says it is "Techron Concentrate Plus" with a thin cardboard wrap around flag on them.
Maybe some stores are giving people ProGard Fuel Injector cleaner , instead? But, that item is not what is discussed here. That one is less potent and can be used every 1,000 miles, per the verbiage on the container.

This is the one for 3000 miles, is this the weaker version people were saying is not too usefull? or is this the "good" concentrated one that should be used sparingly?
Another thing, if you're looking to get this at your local Advanced Auto and don't feel like purchasing online and printing out a piece of paper for in store pickup they will NOT match the price of a single bottle there for some stupid reason. In store however they're doing a buy one get one free on it so you gotta get 2 to get 1 at that price. When I was in store though I realized it said 3k miles on it and I wanted to double check back here to make sure it's the right one that's worthwhile to get, plus I only want one.

See if hes like you there wouldnt be a problem. And his joke isn't funny at all, which makes it even more worthless. By the way that was a video of comparison.
