REDEX PETROL / DIESEL TREATMENT, BUY 2 FOR £5.00

Hi people, this is my first deal being posted on here, so take it easy!

I went into Asda, Trafford park and they had this offer on redex, both diesel and petrol variants, it is only for the fuel system cleaner.

A local store is selling these at £4.50 each, so it was a bargain in my eyes!

I had a look online at asda.com and it doesn't appear to be an online offer.

good enough deal - but telling us once would have been suffice - hehe
#2
what is that meant to mean?

i posted the deal once.........

"but telling us once would have been suffice "
#3
The thread has appeared 3 times now
#4
does this stuff really work?
#5
previously one redex bottle would last ages now its pretty much one time only... really hate them for doing that... good deal... now to find an asda local...
banned#6
This stuff shouldn't be used on engines more than 12 years old (or is it 10 years?). If you use the "high quality petrol with additives" then you shouldn't need Redex at all.
#7
Wilkinsons have a bottle of 4 treatments for around the £3.69 mark. Much better than the 2 treatment one I bought for £5.99 at the garage. If this is 4 treatments it's a bargain in my eyes and tho my car had been stood for a while and has now had a good blast to clear it out it would appear to have added about 50 miles to the tank full after 2 applications. mines a diesel and it might have improved just because it had been stood for a while so don't quote me, It's just my opinion that it worked for me!
#8
i just paid the full price for 1 last week. neway these have 2 treatments per bottle. so 4 treatments for a fiver is a good deal.
#9
Additives are a waste of money, because if you buy quality fuel such as Shell, and use a good quality oil, the additives are all included.
#10
Poundland had the petrol variant in stock about three weeks ago. Worth a look to see if there's any left

Wilkinsons is cheaper - 4 treatments - £3.69 (or there abouts!)

Will this reduce diesel engine noise?
#13
I've been using Redex for years now but I've never put it in my car. I add a capful into the tank of my lawnmower and chainsaw and it keeps them running sweet as a nut. Particularly before you put them away for the winter and first run in the spring, works a treat. A bottle does last several years, so this deal will do me for a decade or so!
#14
thanks i was about to give this ago anyway great post .

I'm fairly sure that Redex is now a subsidiary of Shell Oils.

But there are plenty of pro/cons of using Redex in discussion forums.

If it made your car as quiet as a Rolls Royce or Bentley, then all garage mechanics would be out of a job. :roll:

There is no magic solution.

If there was, then we would not need engine designers and mechanics, and they would be using this stuff, and charge you £90/hour as they do at current rates.

So its inconceivable that a product can affect a car :roll:

Why do you think people pay extra for Optimax and the like?

P.S Can't say that I thought it would make it sound like a Rolls but questioned whether it may have some affect and others have commented it may well do :thumbsup:

Hehe, love it.

This would be a particularly good deal if it were the promotional 100% extra free bottles.
#20
so do you just add to the petrol and not having to flush the system?

There are some that would say it would make certain noises worse, depending on the age of the engine. Bear in mind, this stuff is meant to clean the engine internally, loosen carbon deposits etc. So on an old engine that could lead to larger clearances on moving parts. In effect they will move easier and possibly cause less friction but on the downside more clearance means more room to move about and vibrate. Before anybody points it out, yes I know Redex is primarily a fuel line/injector cleaner but it does by its very nature remove other deposits as well.

Personally I think it's snake oil, and i've never found ANY benefit to using it.
#22
I used to love this stuff in my old mk 2 escort, we used to pour it direct into the carb then go up main street. It took about 5 mins for the smoke to clear.:whistling:

I wonder how many people have put this in their tank, not knowing their car doesn't even have a carburettor - I think they were last produced end of the 1980's when fuel injection had been introduced on most cars to increase fuel economy and so reduce emissions. ;-)

Yep you'd want the injector cleaner for most cars on the road now.

I know this is off topic to the original thread, but I personally find I get a much improved performance from using Optimax vs the standard 95 RON petrol. However, my car is a japanese performance import which was designed to run on the japanese 99 RON fuel. If I put standard stuff in my tank, I find it's sluggish and not as responsive when compared to optimax.

I remember a good few years ago chucking a Methanol based additive in a MK1 Orion Ghia i. Have to admit it did improve it somewhat BUT I got to a supermarket, did a bit of shopping and couldn't get the damn thing restarted for about an hour because the engine was too hot:whistling:
#30
This stuff contains nothing more than normal everyday household PARAFFIN (Yes, the stuff you put in greenhouse heaters etc) in a fancy bottle. You can buy 5 litres of Paraffin from Homebase for about a fiver, but I wouldn't recommend using it all in one go :thumbsup:
Some other brands use plan old Diesel fuel (for cleaning Petrol engine injectors).
250ml of Diesel or Paraffin put into a tank of fuel will do the same job (nothing). The only way to really clean injectors is to remove them and clean them with specialist ultrasonic equipment.
Absolute rip-off!!

Depends on the car you drive tho. I have a turbocharged hot hatch and the extra miles and performance I get out of a tank makes it worth the £4-5 extra whenever I fill up.

So that puts you in the 25% who actually HAVE a use for higher octane, the 75% (I would put it closer to 90% tbh) just buy it because they think it'll improve their car and quite simply it won't.
#33
I use Acetone in my old diesel, sometimes Meths. It does a good job cleaning all the internal components and its a lot cheaper!

Sorry mate, I think we've crossed threads here, I don't use additives - never have, never will. I only use Optimax because it's the closest thing to what my car was designed to run on. For info, my drive is a Mazda RX7.

Wankel:giggle: ;-)

Yeah it was a bit of a cross as you're in the 25% that can make use of it. I was just trying to illustrate the lengths some people WILL go to just for an extra few BHP based on misguided beliefs thanks to advertising:thumbsup:

I actually looked into buyed an RX7 a while back but at 6'6" I don't think it would work out too well:giggle:

Shell Optimax - "Try the UK''s best performance petrol and feel the difference"
...Because the advertisers had not shown with documentary evidence that Shell Optimax would affect all cars by increasing their power and acceleration rates, the Authority considered the claim misleading...

...The advertisers believed that Shell Optimax was the "best performance unleaded" because it had the highest specified octane level in the UK... Because the advertisers did not provide sufficient evidence that compared the performance of vehicles using Optimax with those using competitive super unleaded commercial petrol, the Authority considered that the advertisers had not shown that Optimax produced better results than all other unleaded fuels, the Authority told the advertisers to delete the claim until they could substantiate it...

Full adjudication here: http://www.asa.org.uk/asa/adjudications/non_broadcast/Adjudication+Details.htm?adjudication_id=37402

You can buy super unleaded at many petrol stations; this is 97 RON rather than 95 RON that normal unleaded is. Super unleaded is normally available cheaper than Optimax too! Look out for it on your local supermarket forecourt if your car needs a higher octane fuel. ;-)
(or get the car adjusted to run on 95 RON fuel :))

I am indeed a Wankel :roll:

You're right though, it is amazing the feats that some people will go to get a few extra horses...especially on cars that were never intended to go fast in the first place.

In respect to Optimax, that has now been surpassed with Shell's V-Power, which has an eben higher octane level (99 RON). It's rare to find a supermarket forecourt with as high an octane level.

Tesco appear to have 100 forecourts trialling 99 RON unleaded mostly around London & the SE. They've been selling it for the last 18 months - I guess depending on whether those in the smoke are prepared top pay the extra for such fuel will depend on whether it gets rolled out across the country

Edit: it appears Tesco have already rolled this out to at least 1 forecourt in Wales - may be worth looking in your local supermarket

Edit2: apparently (some) Waitrose petrol stations also sell 99 RON unleaded too. :thumbsup:
I'll have to check out Sainsburys next time I'm there as I was surprised to be able to pick up some LRP a couple of weeks ago from one of their forecourts.

I put redex in a single cylinder honda mororcycle once. It was only a couple of years old. I had to re ring it a week later as I lost compression. I wouldnt use redex again.
