I'd go buy a few bottles of diesel kleen and run 1 full bottle per tank for the next few tanks. (doesn't matter which size really)
Should be fine after that unless it is something really wrong.

Can't remember the link, but a service tech said instead of the injector cleaning gm recommends, he would remove the filter, empty it, then fill it back up with marvels mystery oil, run that for a while, and repeat, re test balance rates.

Or you can buy the dealer cleaner for 18$ and the hoses for 15$ and clean your injectors up for 33$

marvels mystery oil = snake oil, it does absolutely nothing except ruin things. Please do a search on it on the internet. Don't use it! I'd be very wary of going to a place that had a service guy that said to use it

Well, after I read it, I tried it after having some bad coking issues from running wmo, after I did this, there was noticeable smoother idle, and less smoke, MMO claims to be a carbon/injector cleaner, it worked for me, don't know the active ingredient, but i'm betting one of them is either MEKP, or the ams oil cleaner, I forgot what is called, derived from ethanol, if i'm not mistaken. I thought it was a good thing to do, from it being "oily" it would be ok to use directly as fuel, as with atf. not sure if I would try this with diesel kleen, or power service. I did exactly what I wrote to my lb7 and it seemed to work, for me anyways.

ps, I did a search as you suggested, I found a bunch of good stuff. http://www..com/alternative-fuels-ad...stery-oil.html

do a search on gm injector service, it's on here I read it. it's very easy to do the oe injector cleaning procedure, get a 15 dollar line tool, (ebay sells a muti size tool) the cleaner from gm and some hose clamps and hoses, idle your truck on the stuff mixed with d#2 and I hear it works well, 200 bucks, guess if you got more money than time, I know i don't.
