    fuel additives

    do fuel additives have any benefits ??? when i first brought the bora i tried Millers diesel sport additive as a few of the bloke i worked with said it was brilliant but i didnt notice any difference in mpg or power gains. i use redex every now and again when i fill up and i use it on the bug !!

    I have tried redex my self and didn't really notice any diff. My next door neighbour recommends some of the forte stuff.

    I personally just use v power every now and again I do get a few more miles to the tank but it costs more to put in so I works out the same.

    I found that when i used Redex to flush the engine out of my scooby. The car would start to depend on it & would run lumpy unless i put some Redex in. Since then i haven't used it. We used to use Forte in the garages i used to work in.

    I used to run V-power years ago but seen as how it was always more expensive I lost interest... plus the fact filling up every 3 days wasn't best with V-power so I just stuck to normal cheap fuel and a bit of redex now and again...

    I found that sticking redex in once every few months gave the injecters a good clean... and gave those following the need to clean their cars
