    Default Wynns Diesel Fuel System Cleaner

    Hello....

    I have just put some of this in my tank. Has anyone used this before?


    Is it a good thing to use, or just a waste of money?

    Used to use the Millers Derv sport stuff in my tuned VRS deisel.

    Used to use the Millers stuff in the wifes Saab 93 Tid also.

    Now I just run the cars on V Power Derv and petrol and saves me the bother of buying the products.

    Do they do anything in reality? Dunno but it makes you feel better inside lol.

    I've used a similar Wynns Fuel additive, I was advised from this site to make sure it says it lubricates the fuel pump, rather than strips it like redex.

    Not sure if it did anything but I used the week before the MOT and my emmisions were lower than last year when I didn't use anything. That in itself maybe a result?

    Hi boyzzz,
    its a lot to do with the fuel you use , if you use the big brands shell Bp etc, there will be improvements,the likes of asda ,tesco etc are only slightley down the food chain so to speak in quality terms. as to additives you only need lubricating oils for your fuel system if running on dodgey fuels.
    the fuel cleaners are kerosene based as in they make the fuel thinner and help clean the system through . hope this helps .

    So in short......it was a waste of time using 'Wynns Diesel Fuel System Cleaner'.

    What other additives are best to use?

    I am still wanting to try carb cleaner sprayed inside my air intake to clear the coke and EGR system.

    Any thoughts?
