    Forte. For the price, it's the best i've used and it works. Forget the instructions (i.e. use to a full tank of diesel), run the tank to almost empty, put the whole bottle contents in the fuel tank, then fill with about a tenner of diesel. Run the car around til it runs out then fill the tank again.

    For best results (and recommended by a couple of garages here that supply it), it's best used when carrying out a fuel filter change. When the old filter is out and the new one in, fill the filter housing with the forte contents, and seal it back up. this way, it gets through the system almost undiluted and will have a better effect. One of the garages that i know uses this on Taxis using the method above, a week before their MOT is due. They get cracking results, especially on a smoke test.
