    Do any of you use BP Ultimate Diesel?

    I'm picking up my new A4 1.9tdi next week and would like to get the most from the car.

    It may be a little more expensive, but my main concerns are,

    1. Do you find any increase in performance?
    2. Any changes in MPG?
    3. Is the car more/less smokier?

    I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Cheers,

    Ray.

    Rubbish.

    Go to Ultimate Diesel, I have noticed a difference in response and in figures. Maybe not too much in peroformance but your always guaranteed the benefit of the doubt.

    Cleaner for your engine / Run Synthetic oil after a few K's

    Performance does seem slightly better but difficult to be objective without testing it against a clock etc

    MPG generally worse than other good quality diesel like Shell.

    I found it to be slightly smokier than normal.

    Any car I've seen running on bp ultimate petrol or diesel has actually made less power on a dyno run than the shell powered equivalent - I'd rate it about the same as supermarket stuff - avoid!

    I've found no power increase at all with Ultimate, and both Shell and Ultimate have knocked 3-4 mpg off. No doubt it cleans the injectors etc, but I'd stick to normal BP!

    My TDI quattro feels quite alot smoother to drive after a few tanks of BP ultimate compared to the old stuff.
    Performance is 50/50 really imo
