    Diesel Additives

    Im on the road every day with work and basically its handier for me to fill up at supermarkets. I was thinking of using a fuel additive of some sort

    I saw the Millers Diesel Power EcoMax, its basically a fuel system cleaner, cleans injectors and claims to boost cetane rating by 4 points.



    Do you think this is any good? Also how much would you put into a tank? it says that it treats 10 tanks, but for all there is in the bottle, it must be a very small amount

    I used this stuff for about a year and didn't notice any difference, Terraclean looks like it does what it says on the tin, thinking about getting mine done soon

    Ive used this on all my VAG diesels for 8 years, I "believe in it" if you like, it makes them definitely run cleaner, much much less chimney sweeping when you accelerate, it gives you a few more mpg and you can tell the difference between my car that runs it and my brothers identical car that doesnt.

    Probably if you work it out the few more mpg would offset the price of the millers to even out, but it visibly reduces crap out the back so i think its worth it for me, if it offsets the price then Im essentially running it at no extra cost anyway.

    The dilution ratio is 1000:1 so 50ml for 50l of diesel

    In my humble opinion there is no excuse for putting supermarket fuel in your car and then trying to 'make it better' with an additive
