    Anyone on here use this stuff & if so is it any good? We don't get v power diesel where I stay just v power unleaded, currently using shell diesel extra but quite tempted to try BP ultimate. I would prefer to try v power but if I cant get it BP ultimate has to be next best thing. Cheers.

    I ran it for a couple of months in my PD golf when it first came out. It didn't produce any noticeable performance benefits but the engine was a liitle more responsive and I managed to get about 2-3mpg more from each tank.

    On the other hand, when I bought the S3 it felt a bit sluggish and after a few tankfulls of V-Power / Momentum it is a different animal.

    What I would say though is that the difference is more noticeable with petrol than diesel, so unless you're running a highly tuned diesel I wouldn't bother if I was you.

    BTW my golf was putting out about 200bhp.

    V-Power Diesel Nitro+ gives me better MPG, smoother engine, quieter engine and less smoke. Heard good things about BP Ultimate too but never tried it as I'm loyal to Shell lol

    I wouldn't really say much i mean though is that the distinction is more recognizable with fuel than diesel fuel, so unless you're operating a very updated diesel fuel i wouldn't hassle as if i were you . . . . . . . .
