    Default Whats everyone using in their Dervs Vpower or Normal?

    Just wondering what everyone is feeding their dervs?. ive been using V Power & V Power only for the last 3 months & i must say the car hardly seems to smoke anymore even when flooring it. i had the car in for an mot the other day & the inspector was reving the tits off it to get a emissions reading but no smoke.
    Has anyone else noticed an improvement?

    Currently got tesco stuff in cause we did a weeks shop there, and since remap I've been more content!

    But, have filled up with vpower diesel numerous times, I've noticed much better running, infact even my wife mentioned it was more torquey on the motorway! Only fuel I've ever really noticed a marked improvement in performance with to be honest!

    Lmao, yes, I had the same problem. Purely technically grammatically I suppose the answer is yes, but I suspect not what was intended.
