Where did you put the fuel injector cleaner at? A vac line? If so, yes it's normal for it to smoke alittle. If you put it in the gas tank and it smokes then something is wrong. We do it with the vac line off the brake booster.

wtf ^^^^

but back to question. did you put the fuel injector cleaner in when the thank was almost empty then fill it up? you can't just put it in and be done, it has to be "mixed".
