    Default Can anybody recommend a diesel fuel additive?

    mindful that my car has had a new manifold and the egr is not blanked, so want to put something in that might help keep it clean?

    you'll still get gunk in your new manifolds no matter what additives you use, it's best to blank your EGR sharpish while everything is clean.

    Soot is a natural by product of diesel combustion; only made worse by introduction of EGR which lowers combustion temperatures and therefore generates even more soot in the exhaust!

    Having nice clean and efficient injection/combustion will help to keep soot generation as low as possible but like the others have said, blanking and remapping is the only way to preserve your intake manifold!

    Used to use millers and red ex until I have came to the conclusion I don't see the benefit. Suffice to say I haven't used them in 18months.

    What you said.

    Only one I've ever noticed a benefit from was the Forte one. Can't get that over the shelf though I don't think.

    That has no cleaning properties and only serves to lubricate the fuel pump. Used it once or twice, can't say I really noticed anything.

    So basically the consensus is don't bother - spend the money on a blanking plate/Fiat Gasket instead!!!!
