That's the one. Used to use it years ago but fuels are more advanced thse days so not sure whether it's useful or not. However, I know when my brother's injectors went it cost an arm and a leg... so £8.99 every 12 months or so is nothing.
To those getting 45+mpg on long runs, what kind of speed are you going at?
When I'm running on my usual 260mile "commute", I'm usually getting 41-43mpg on a good day, sat on cruise control at 75-80mph.
Ive had my ECU tuned to about 285-290bhp, which I was informed by numerous perople, should increase my mpg slightly on steady m'way driving.
Am I more likely seeing a drop in mpg due to my tune? Or is it from a dirty engine? (also, my air filter needs changing)
I know some people refer RedEx to snakeoil but I generally used it in the past the fill up before an MOT.
I believe the detergents in it are similar to putting in Vpower diesel, so I also used this every few fills. It was pre-dpf and it did decrease the smog.
With a diesel I would now give BG244 a try as it seems to be mostly positive feedback but I would use things like this only once a year, expensive but part of an MOT makes it acceptable . I've used the petrol version in mine BG44K, I also saw that Kwikfit try to push this stuff whenever people get an MOT. About BG products
