    As title.

    Read various opinions on here, and unsure whether or not Redex Diesel treatment would be the way to go.

    Any thoughts specific to this car?

    Shouldn't see why not! - I use Millers EcoMax myself.

    Effects may be placebo but it seems to have helped mine.

    The reason I use it in mine is because apparently modern diesels lack lubricant for the diesel pump - additives claim to add lubrication as well as help clean up injectors - weather or not it works I don't have any evidence, I just use it every other tank along with good diesel.

    I wouldn't use any of that stuff. Even though I've been persuaded by various adverts in my youth, I think the effect could be bettered by just throwing my money out the car window and enjoying the weight-saving benefits.

    I have used it in the past but it seems too expensive now and I dont think it made much difference so I stick to V Power which does
