    I use it in my Petrol, but then ive always used it and some say using it for first time (depending on mileage of your car) can sometimes cause trouble.....Never really heard of anyone having trouble though. But not sure on cdti's buddy.

    Oh just noticed your location.....Bumpty bump we have some west mid meets coming up soon, check them out. Always good to meet new faces buddy.....

    It you want the proper stuff use BG products to clean your fuel system. Redex is the poor mans version

    I've been using Redex Diesel Treatment for a while without issue. I recently read in AutoExpress that early Insignia's can occassionally misfire at motorway speeds but this is easily cured by using a fuel treatment such as Redex.

    I'd avoid it. Used it a few times years ago and it never did what it claimed.

    Used Forte treatments ever since and they far exceed what they claim to do and worth the extra couple of £s
