Bit of 2 stroke now and again wouldnt hurt. Personally on our old motors ive always seen that stuff as a bit of a gimmick (as in it doesnt work)

Although on the subject a mate at work told me he just bought some industrial stuff for lorrys and bus's, tiny little bottle does 300litres of fuel and hes going to put it in his landy lol

I add 200ml of two stroke to a tank of fuel it helps improve mpg and it quiet down the engine Wink

Try searching for Cetane Booster and weigh up if you think it's worth it or not. Some of the diesel injector cleaners list they have it in them and I swear I've noticed a difference when I've put a bottle in to a quarter tank instead of the recommended full one.

Dont, repeat, dont use Redex. Awful stuff. A lot of injector failures traced to use of redex.

Centane booster is good stuff, as is a little 2stroke oil.

Forte injector cleaner is ace stuff too.
Wishes for more power...

Isnt redex just a top end lubricant? I find it hard to believe a liquid in a bottle watered down by the whole tank of fuel your spose to put it in, with can make a noticable difference to your cars running Undecided

I usually use the Millers additive with BP/Esso branded fuel but I'm considering adding a bottle of system cleaner from Halfords as I'm not sure how the car was driven before I got it and I think it's better safe than sorry - is there any one people would recommend ?

The car loves abit of 2-stroke, quietens down the injectors and helps with cold starts IMO.

Only other additive I would consider is Forte, don't trust anything else on the market.
