well ive used 2/3 of the bottle now and im not impressed i wont be buying or usingi t again.

no performance increase at all (wasnt expecting any)
worse mpg

the last 2 tanks i forgot to put it in and im getting better mpg now than when iwas using the stuff so its not always as good as its cracked up to be. only thing i can think of is its because the car has been looked after all its life, the egr hasnt been touched on this and it dosent smoke at all and emmisions are super low! so it must be at optimum as it is.

so the verdict is if your cars running fine and no smoke dont bother using it, if your car isnt running right and smoking, first consider a fuel filter change then consider using this stuff after.

I use it in mine more for its lubricating properties rather than mpg or power increases, hoping that it may help prevent total failure of the pump in case of minor water ingresses.

Essex_racer if your having probs (as i mentioned above) this stuff is probably best as it lasts longer and is more concerntrate and better value for money overall. if your cars going fine its not worth using unless your not too bothered about the mpg.

kithmo your obviously not bothered about mpg i can see your point why your using it though, i bought mine for ecconomy mostly although the power is nice too but i dont use it that often lol.
