    Dom,

    From what I have read, they are not good on the S3, what is your reason for wanting to do this if any??

    Personally, I just use V Power fuel, which is a high spec fuel that does all you need it to.

    I use Wynn's Injection Power 3.Top stuff.

    Less smoke on a cold start up is always a good sign in my book...

    To be honest alot of tests proved that they harldy make a difference, so may not be worth it and if there is cr4p in your system, clearing it out could actually get it flowing through the system causing you more probs.

    What fuel are you using on the car??

    alrite guys need a wee bit of advice, i cant run on v-power 90% of the time as they dont sell it where i live, so what im wondering is should i put some fuel cleaner thru the system now and again??
    i do see a noticeable difference when i run it on v-power tho and wish i could run it on that all the time.
    cheers
