    Default Millers Combined with V - Power Diesel...

    Thought I'd give it a bash, so 2 tanks of V Power and standard dose of Millers 4 Later.....

    Power delivery is far smoother and there doesn't appear to be any delays in the delivery like when I was using standard Diesel.

    Also, I don't have to change from 6th to 5th when overtaking on the motorway - just plant my foot and it just effortlessly flies.

    The only down side to this combination is the current high price of the V-Power. It's about £5 more per tank to fill up. Does anyone know if the prices are going to be going down again in the near future before we all end up driving super mini's to be able to afford the fuel bills?

    I gave up looking at the price of fuel, it's depressing.

    The Millers is good stuff though, I forgot to add it to this tank of fuel and the car is certainly less responsive and a bit knockier. Then again I use Tesco fuel, so no surprise there.

    Ouch!!! Teso fuel - what are u thinking of?
    That rubbish has destryed 2 of my cars in the last 4 years - first it did for the injectors on an old Fiat Tipo, then again it had done 130k.

    More worryingly tho, My last motor, a Focus TDCi had its injectors knackered by Tesco Fuel after 44k. I'm talking Injectors, Throttle Body, MAF sensor, the lot. All because I tried to save a few quid.

    Ended up getting shut of it because it ended up with a new engine required!!

    Cost me £1.13 per litre and the shots of Millers last night, It's getting to be like driving a VXR... Actually that's not quite true, is it Spoons?

    230hp must be fun, I can't keep 150 reined in this time of the year.

    I know about the Tesco fuel, that's why I add plenty of Millers. Due to a serious lack of filling stations in Belfast, the only station I pass daily is Tesco - I couldn't be bothered going out of my way to get fuel that costs more.

    I can see the problem with that.... however, I would be tempted to find something better mate.

    Its a 1.9. I dont think he runs it at 230bhp at the time ..... else it would blow up .
    He "tweaks" it up and down.

    Ha Ha. What tuning system is he running on it - 80bhp on top of the standard is pretty extreme - its over 50% more power than standard! Almost as much as the Golf R32 in standard form!
