They works on petrol engines,tried and tested.Saved me hundreds of £££ to replace clogged injectors.
Driving diesels for last couple of years,never had any problems and never used any additives.

No need for this stuff unless you do short repeat journeys all the time.
A good run with an engine that's up to temperature is the ticket.

And don't use if your system has a dpf

I bought the diesel one. My Zafira has a Dpf and has done 60000 miles. I used 1/2 bottle in tank full of fuel as recommended and I think it has made a small difference. Mpg slightly up despite cold weather and engine sounded slightly sweeter.
All probably in the mind but at £1.125 a treatment worth a punt.

I didn't notice any difference when I used Redex in a Pug HDi few years ago, tried Millers and that was really noticeable.

Basically an octane booster and will help clean injectors and fuel lines.
(Enthusiast mechanic and done plenty of reading).
Will get some and put in the garage for when the project car is finally finished.
#11
Works a treat on my 10 year old Golf tdi. Been advised by my mechanic to go for a half to full tank of fuel along with a full bottle, rather than half. Went from spluttering starts to smooth take off and slight improvement in mpg. Good stuff, good price, heat added.
#12
If you need this then you aren't driving it properly ;)
banned#13
Instead of using this why not just have some fun and drive fast for a while? Will do the same thing
#14
Redex is largely paraffin (kerosene). As are most 'injector cleaners' and the like. I've used plain paraffin as a fuel additive and noticed the same benefits.

However I wonder if the formulation of Redex has changed any since it used to be sold as an 'upper cylinder lubricant'? In those days, it was routine to have to strip down your car's engine at 50,000 miles to decoke it.

Really? I've driven several petrol cars over the past 25 years and have never used any additives, and have never had a clogged injector - so how do you know it's saved you hundreds of pounds?

Oh what a hero you are...
When my car started loosing power and acceleration,took it to the garage and on diagnostics it showed clogged injectors as a problem. Mechanic recommended to try a injector cleaner first. Bought couple of Redex and after driving just couple of miles I felt the difference,and when finished full tank,power and acceleration was restored. Tested again at the garage and everything was fine.
Used double recommended dose,by the way.
Whatever it is,this stuff works.

Similar price to putting a full tank of premium unleaded. Similar results too

So in a couple of miles, this formulation made it from the fuel filler cap, to the injectors?

No. You are just trolling...
I used to fill Premium fuel time by time(2-3 regular petrol fill-ups, 1 premium petrol fill-up),injectors clogged anyway...post #16

Oh you are just a child...
Fill bottle of Redex first to nearly empty tank,then fill up petrol.It mixes very fast.

So it sounds like it's worth buying if your fuel injectors are clogged up!

How do you determine whether that's the case? Rough running engine?
#22
I've got an old 1998 Citroen Xsara 1.9 Turbo Diesel that's done 169k miles. Im planning to drive it to Spain and back (2400+ miles). Would anyone recommend putting the diesel version in before I go or could it cause more problems than it solves?

There is nothing actually "wrong" with the car as such, I was just thinking it may help.

Also, i've heard about oil additives that you put in just before an oil change, run the engine at fast idle for 15minutes and then drain the oil and refill with fresh. Any good?

If nothing wrong with a car-there is no need to use it.
And yes,engine flush before changing oil is very good.

Doesn't work at all. wouldn't bother if it was free.

I like how on the diesel one they've written "WARNING: Harmful". Harmful to what? My car?? oO;)

Got a Diesel 3.0 DCI, every now and again got an error on the console, lose all power and can limited to about 20MPH, turning the car off and on again solved it for another few days, after checking the error code online turned out it was a clogged fuel injector head so popped some redex in the car with a full tank of fuel and have done so once every 3 months since and never had the error or fault again.

it wont harm it, so might as well pop it in, and the worst it will do is nothing, but it most likely will help remove any build up or residue on the valves. one thing i would recommend for a big drive like that esp when you get to hotter climate, is keep your PSI a couple of points under the recommended level as your tyres will get very very hot!

I did a 500 mile drive it was a red hot day and empty roads had my tyres pumped up to recommended levels car was loaded to the max as well, and thank god i was at a point doing under 20 MPH (had fmaily in car) heard a massive bang!, then dragged left, stopped immediately and when i looked the left rear tyre had exploded and i mean torn to shreds! and took out the alloy with it! completely ripped it apart, the RAC guy said he seen it once before and it was tyres under to much weight and high temps can massively expand and explode.

Thanks for the tip! The tyres are only little 185/65/14's on steel wheels and we're having 4 new ones fit before the trip so we know that they're safer. I'll be sure to monitor the pressures though. Glad you and your family were all ok, it could have been a lot worse!

Same here I have a 1.2 16v clio and its not a fast car but it pulled away quickly at junctions which I liked, then, after running it low a few times it became sluggish, and i became concerned about getting up to speed merging on motorways etc. Thought it was going to cost me a lot of money to restore performance but was recommended this and after a few applications with full tank have my old trusty car back, really pleased with it
