Just to warn all you guys out there i have put some redex in my car (the diesel one) and within about 150 miles its causing me real issues the injector noise has gone from bad to like a real loud diesel knock its really bad now and also the car is making lots of white smoke on startup and giving the classic rough running on startup (injector leak) maybe it is just bad timing but its only just happend when i put the diesel one shot in my car with a full tank too. so just be warned as now i have got to get the injectors done much sooner than i thought :angryfire:

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once you've hit it.

normally dont bother with any of them but thought a shot of redex might help clean the injectors up its totally screwed them up the tickover is so loud but no fault codes as of yet

i put 4 shots of redex in 1/2 a tank when mine was smking heavily, soon cleared it and no probs, but mines tddi. i hope this doesn't kill your injectors mate, it would be really bad timing! :( :tonofbricks:

i find that mine runs better when its got the millers in

perhaps as its running more boost and stuff

seems to be better after a new fuel filter today too

though i dont know why it should make a great difference

Millers seems to make a difference to diesels. No products seem to make a difference to petrols though :(


I used to use redex one bottle treatment stuff, that helped
