    Used Redex on the past on my old Astra ( whipped out the plugs, injected some in, covered turned over a couple of times, then plugs in, and smoked fo Britain as I burned out the crap). But dont think modern reasinably low milage engines need it now do they?
    If the engine management system runs the show, would adding it to the petrol make any difference?

    I put a bottle of Redex in mine not long after I had it, and noticed nothing at all. Now I stick to V-Power - it's a couple of extra quid each tank but prevention is better than cure, eh?
