    Default Millers Fuel Treatment

    Do people here who use millers in there fuel put it in regular diesel or in the premium v-power diesel. With the current climate and trying to keep costs down, will millers still be effective in just regular diesel?

    IMO its a waste of £12 or so. I'd rather have the extra fuel to burn.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Been using for a few tank fulls now. Car does seem more responsive and smoother, however I'm not 100% convinced !

    Definately not a waste of money, but its upto individuals at the end of the day.

    I use it mainly in reg Shell diesel, as you won't see much benefit with V-Power.

    I guess I am interested in the whole clean burn thing and trying to keep the system clean internally.
    My car is in today getting a new inlet manifold as I have suffered the whole swirl flaps/ EGR problems.
    I am keen to prevent this happening again and having to shell out a big load of cash to get it fixed!

    I use it with V-Power and the car is deffinately quieter and has better pull. Everyone's going to have differing opions and differing results but for me it works and i'm happy with it.

    I have used Millers Oils diesel additive for years now, since the 'wonderful' government decided that all diesel must contain a minimum of 5% biodiesel.
    Definately makes a difference to response and fuel economy.
    I also use millers oils in the engine it exceeds the specs for my engine by miles.
    If you can find your local Millers Oils trade supplier it is much cheaper. I pay only £5 a bottle for it!!!

    The british standard for diesel BS EN 590 states up to a maximum of 5% biodiesel, not a minimum. There are 50/50 blends like greenergy and 100% bio , but most manufacturer's won't warranty your vehicle over a 5% mix. The biocides and temperature filtration issues put most pump manufacturer's off providing measuring equipment and retailers are discovering the maintenance costs.

    Miller's advantage is the cetane rating increase. The same advantage "premium" diesel offers, hence the increased performance and mpg claims.

    My last five tankfulls have had millers diesel sport in and I have noticed a smoother torque delivery and a 4 and a bit mpg improvement.

    The handbook does clearly state vx don't recommend the use of any additive.

    The large bottle for a fiver? Blimey that make great economical sense if you can pick it up, tenner posted on ebay.
