    Default Excellent mpg

    well guys ,,been using 2 stroke oil for the past few weeks every time i top up...i throw 200ml into a half full tank,,and also gave my egr,throttle body and boost sensor a proper good cleaning last week,,and for the last 3 days my car has been getting 51mpg,,, thats up from 44mpg before i started using the two stroke,,,last 4 days have been all motorway driving,,with a heavy ish foot also,,,so in my opinion the 2 stroke trick makes a big difference

    Maybe I should try this, seems to be cheaper than the Redex I'm putting in but the Redex is giving me good MPG too. Got the thermostat fixed today and this thing's MPG has improved dramatically.
