Z-TECH Fuel System Cleaner?

Just bought my wife a new Xterra and was going over the dealership's recommended maintenance schedule and for their 7500 mile service they "install Z-Tech fuel system cleaner." After some googling... it looks like Z-Tech is similar to SeaFoam, but with more products and uses.

Does anyone have any experience? From the website I'm assuming the dealership would just use the fuel additive which even my wife can do herself, but I haven't confirmed with the dealership.

If you're wondering, no I'm not going to take the X to the dealership for service, I do it all myself but was just wondering about Z-Tech.

Rock On. Thanks!

Side note: The dealership we bought from uses Nitrogen in all of their tires. I thought that was pretty cool.

you dont need the fuel system cleaning at 7500 miles. As an ex-mechanic for 6 yrs, RUN RITE (fuel cleaner) suggested getting fuel system cleaning 12k-15k miles. I did mine 1st time at 50k miles and did not notice much difference in performance or gas mileage maybe VERY little. I would wait till atleat 30k miles.
