This is a guess at the very most, could be a stuck fuel injector spraying fuel, a bad fuel regulator on the fuel rail, (causes high fuel pressure) a leaking fuel hose or vacuum line. But, Why did you add injector cleaner was it misbehaving before this? rough running, stalling, check engine light on, how many miles?
