Burn that crap out and fill the tank with fresh gas. Did you use it in a FULL tank and only put in the recommended amount? That stuff is very strong. It can and will eat the insulation off the pump windings and cause pump failure. We have been advised by a former well respected and knowledgable member not to use that stuff. Particularly in high concentrations.

I understand that it will also eat the windings off the injector coils, too.

Unless you have bona-fide fuel system problems, there really isn't a good reason to use injector/fuel system cleaners. Just use good, quality gas.
