If you haven't had any misfires or faults show up related than you are throwing your money out the window. OBD2 cars are so closely monitored, you can get a CEL for the slightest of changes in perameters. If it will make you feel more confident....take the fuel rail off and visually inspect your injectors. With some gas and a soft bristled brush you can clean them up. If it comes down to it, your dealership should have an injector tester in which they can install your injectors into the test rail and place the injectors in a tank of water........so you can see the spray pattern. I am sure they would charge you no more than 1/2 to 1 hour of labor, if they charge you.

Seriously though.........you are wasting your money without a CEL.
