BMW sells Chevron Techron in their own bottle. Using it every 6 months would be good enough.
If you use a top tier gasoline it already has more cleaning agents included.

Chevron/Texaco gasoline already has a small dose of Techron, if you have Texaco or Chevron stations in your area.

This. Toptier gas for their detergents. BMW/techron for their fuel injection cleaner. I also highly recommend BG 44K

I run a bottle of BMWs Fuel System Cleaner every 6 month in my car as a little piece of mind.
