Fuel Injector Cleaner - Beneficial @ 122K?

had a recent change in driving pattern over the past 7 months; more short = trips, less long. MPG has dropped to 23 from 23.4. I was considering adding= injector cleaner to a tank or two but was advised against it by a auto-voc= ation teacher. He claims it may disturbed or dislodge sediment, particles, = or what have you that may clog the fuel pump and complicate maters.
Comments welcome. I'm still inclined to try a few bottles.

First, more short trips and fewer long trips would account for the drop in mpg. Second, your auto-vocation teacher is full of shit.

I think in the long run, it will be beneficial to use injector cleaners. donot expect to see a result overnight but in long run, you will see it.
