I buy a bottle every now and then, but I wonder if I am just wasting my money?

On Amazon.com it gets a rating of 5 out 5 stars from 17 customer reviews.

Depends on what gas you normally use, how you drive, etc. If you are using a "top tier" brand of gas, not making many short trips, you probably are OK without it. IIRC you drive a Camry and they have been noted for sludging issues if they make a lot of short trips but not necessarily intake valve deposits.

If you can't detect any better running, or better yet (because it's an objective measurement) log your MPG, does it go up after a Techron treatment?

Techron is a good cleaner, but to get benefit from a cleaner you have to start with something that's dirty.
