    Default Redex

    Simple one for you experts here. Does Redex actually do anything worthwhile compared with what it says on the label?

    It's widely known and proven that the injector cleaner/power boost stuff does ******all for petrol cars and I'm wondering if the same can be said for Redex?

    Thanks in Advance

    cant say my 08 1.9 CDTi felt any different, no more mpg and no smoother,.. maybe as I do 33 mile trips each way to work is enough to keep it clean

    Someone in another thread on fuel additives said that he stuck 300mls of 2 stroke oil in with each tankful.Never had any problems apparently,the thing is,what sort of 2 stroke oil do you use?,I mean there's so many types,but it may be worth a try???????,who knows,it shouldn't do any harm. FELIXX.

    I much prefer the "Italian tune up" from time to time as this clears faults before they happen.

    Redex can do more harm than good when used a little too much. it's your choice of course.

    IMO it is only an option if you think/believe you are not getting the best out of your car
