    Try a full fuel system cleaner with injector cleaner first and see if this helps. Best way is to pull injectors and clean by hand but, lets not jump the gun yet.

    Thanks. I may have gotten the cart before the horse with my question about cleaning the fuel injectors.
    That diagnosis came "second hand" from a friend who knows a mechanic. So I think I should ask you if the
    symptom I'm getting, the engine light coming on when I use regular unleaded gas and going out when I use
    premium gas, is really being caused by dirty fuel injectors, OR by something else entirely? Sorry to be
    so troublemsome, I do appreciate your help!
