    I'm on my 2nd tank of fuel since i bought the car 5 weeks ago. I had 3/4 of a bottle left of Millers from a previous car so added 2 shots in this 2nd tank, it doesn't seem to make any noticeable difference but maybe it will after a few tanks as this should clean the fuel system by then?
    It claims to increase the octane of the fuel and also power - whether it's noticeable i'll see.

    I read on other forums a few years ago that a lot of people recommend additives as some batches of fuel can be poor which causes poor running, etc so Millers, etc can help.

    I used the Millers Sport+4 for Years on my old Golf 4 PD150 diesel. Didn't notice much difference, but fell for the hype I guess.
    When I got rid of the car I gave the rest of the bottle I had left to my old man. He put it into his Volvo V70 diesel & swears that it picks up better from low revs, with less tendency to bog down.
