    Default Redex Diesel

    Redex is safe to use even if you have a catalytic converter, common rail,turbo charged and intercooled engines."

    Any reason why I shouldn't stick this in with my next fill up ??

    (My mate bought some for his Mondeo Diesel and had some left over)

    Used it before - twice if I remember right, and never felt any difference, in terms of performance or figures.

    I just thought that it might keep the injectors and other bits and pieces free from carbon deposits. Especially as I am using a CR1 tuning box.

    If you are using BP Ultimate fuel, don't use it. BP Ultimate has more cleaners than most fuels and you would just be wasting money and wearing components.

    An old Navy trick was to stick a little OM15 in the tank to clean the injectors (it's more viscouse than fuel).

    I used to use it many many years ago, when there were no cleaning detergents in the fuel, I must say that I did not notice any improvement, but I would not have thought it would make any difference with todays superiour fuels. if it was me I would save the money and spend it on your good lady, then it would be appreciated.
