    hi. not used any of those but have tried millers new stuff. can't remember the name but it's the newest stuff on mt 2004 2.0 tdi.
    i had plenty of smoke when i hit the 3000rpm mark. i put this stuff in and honestly can't see any smoke now.
    can't say i noticed any great power increase etc.
    hope this helps. give it a try. i'm sure it's in halfords. around 12 but lasted long enough

    I use Millers in mine and it does make a difference to the soot output when giving it some stick.

    With the Variable-Vane technology in Diesel Turbos these days - anything that helps to keep the soot level down is a good thing.
