    Redex raises the cetane level, it will not cause an increase in smoke
    However, as with all third party additives you need to use it for at least four full tanks to notice any change

    An alternative is to use a premium fuel and compare
    If there is no change then it is a mechanical issue

    Id start by checking the condition of your air filter as it is the easiest and cheap to replace also try giving your maf sensor a clean with isopropynol alcohol as when these get dirty or start failing they cause fueling issues
