Craig:

Techron fuel injector cleaner is sold in many auto parts stores, even the low-rent chain ones.

You almost certainly have bad gas in there, and it will take a while to get the plugs clear once they get sooty. If they are Bosch, get the fuel system clean by running a fresh tank though with Techron in it, then replace the plugs. They recover from carbon fouling VERY slowly (except the Platinums).
