    Vehicle : Insignia 2.0L CDTI SRI hatchback

    Trim : Black leather

    Engine : A20 DTJ 128 HP

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 126,000

    Thumbs up

    I have always used Forte in my diesels, great results from the moment its added to the fuel tank. The exhaust emissions become a little "blue" smokey for a week, but this is all the harmful deposit burning off from within the engine and EGR systems. Its recommended by Vauxhalls, and when i was a tech there we used it regularly, good customer feedback, alittle expensive though....

    I'm a first time diesel car owner and see the benefit of using fuel additives, having used Redex in the distant past, can you advise whether Forte is used in the tank once, or is a continuous treatment and added with every fill-up?

    My Signum has done over 70k and runs fine, but may need a clean through.
