Re: clean fuel injectors

Have my 2004 Accord EX 4i in for a 40k mile service, dealer calls and says there's a little buildup on the injectors, do I want to spend $160 to get the
injector flush?
(hey, they sell this car on a 100k mile "no tuneup" policy)
I usually let the dealer screw me around for modest stuff, but is this reasonable or competely bogus? I know I asked online a couple of years ago when my Acura dealer tried to sell me that flush on every service, sight-unseen, and the consensus seemed to be it might make sense around 80k to 100k miles, but not sooner.
Anyway, those friggin' tiny back brakes were down below 2mm so I told them to go ahead on those, so I wasn't in the mood for more BS.
Any advice on that injector flush?
FWIW, I use almost exclusively Chevron gas.
Thanks.
J. If you have always used a good high quality fuell from day 1 (meaning since new) like chevron with techron and changed your fuell filter regularly and you know the vehicle runs well with no starting or hesitation problems dont fall for it! you dont need it on my 95 civic with 224.000kms
never had that done never did need it car ran beutifully. the "key to maintaining clean fuel injectores" is using a good quality fuell and changing the fuel filter when HONDA recommends it be done that will keep your fuel injectores clean and flowing right for a ton of miles!
