great stuff to be used on all petrol engines and particularly rotaries too whether you have a cat or not ...use in advance of a forthcoming MOT if you're worried about your emissions or if your car fails on emissions

Is this "treatmant" for all breeds of cat or just for your typical moggy? Siamese? More info please.

Does it actually do anything though?

I don't recommend putting this into your cats engine.

When my cat was goosed, I got a universal one fitted. It cost £34. Just so you know they don't cost hundreds if you aren't bothered about original parts.

Sailed through mot too.

Hey 👋🏻 is this better then the redex stuff?. 🙈😊

Tiddles was never the same..... Had a very glossy coat for a while though....

Is there a diesel dog version of this?

I've used this twice on my merc cdi. It was recommended by an engineer when I had my car remapped, he didn't sell it to me (although he sells it now) but he said it's worth doing once or twice a year. Certainly seems to make a difference, I get better mpg on a few tanks after I use it, although I don't know if it's psychological (I drive quite gently to get as much mpg as I can anyway). The engineer said use a full bottle at 1/4 tank as per instructions and then do a tank of the higher quality diesel (ultimate or optimax or whatever it is). When I've looked on amazon reviews in the past it's either people saying it's great and solved cat/dpf issues or it does nothing, it's a bit marmite. I'll get a bottle at this price, heat.

Well it definitely makes you have £7.14 less than you had before.

Excellent!
Was going to get 1 bottle from Halfords this week @ £15.99 therefore got two bottles for less.

Heat added....... Thank you.

Cats far from happy missold (heat)

Trouble with the cheap aftermarket cats are they don't last much longer than a year if you're lucky. Often if your cat has gone then there is likely a different problem causing it to go, i,e misfire, oil contamination etc etc. Doesn't really matter if it's just getting an old car through an MOT though. Cheaper the better ;). My last cat cost £230 on a petrol Smax!. Yet my dad's cost him £45 on a focus. Price varies.

This may help clean a cat but it won't fix a melted one. When unburned fuel gets into the cat it ignites and melts it. Give it a wack, if it rattles your cat is probably gone.

So you've used a petrol treatment on a diesel car?

Yeah, the bottle in the picture in both this post and the sellers website says petrol or diesel, the description says suitable for diesel engines 3 times in the description and it also says it cleans diesel particulate filter.

Not sure why the product link says for petrol cars.. Maybe they just want to make people make short, snappy comments to others on Internet forums when they give an honest opinion on a product. Who knows.

I've used this for over 10 years and it does seem to work on poor emissions. My tip is to always get the MOT early, you're allowed 1 month before expiry and use it a week or so before the MOT so that it can heat up the combustion chamber, valves and exhaust system ready for the test. By going in with weeks to spare if it fails you still have time to use the car and get advice and a fix before expiry.

Don't think so. If it fails the MOT test, there's a record of the failure online and that failure overrides the pass because it's the most upto date test for the vehicle. The vehicle isn't road worthy if it fails. Thus the insurance would be invalid.

Oh, my MOT Centre told me porky pies then.

It's just logical really. The most recent MOT test is the current MOT test.
My car recently failed on a tyre, it's on the sheet as dangerous, bulging on the inside, so I didn't know. I had a week left on the MOT from last year, I knew it was dangerous and could blow ànytime. Why would I drive it knowing this?

I feel sorry for the cats! Poor cats

On the gov.uk/get…t site it states the following

Driving a vehicle that’s failed. You can take your vehicle away if your MOT certificate is still valid.

If your MOT has run out you can take your vehicle to:

  • have the failed defects fixed
  • a pre-arranged MOT test appointment
In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times or you can be fined.

You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving and get 3 penalty points for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.

I suppose if the fail is for something like a requirement for a new rear windscreen wiper blade or emissions and you have a current MOT they wont throw the book at you as they would not be classed as unroadworthy. I agree a bulging tyre would be unroadworthy and not safe to drive in that condition.

Would there be much point purchasing this even though I have started using ecomax (Millers). Noticed with the Millers on my last tank full once car/engine/parts we’re up to temperature and I dropped it down a couple of gears a plume of black smoke escaped the exhaust....?🤔

You're wrong, the old MOT remains valid, however your car would still be unroadworthy and illegal regardless of amount of MOT left. You could have an MOT at 12:00 and by 12:01 the car could become unroadworthy. The MOT isn't a guarantee of roadworthyness. Why wait until an MOT to have the bold tyre/s replaced?. You should be checking them yourself regularly, they're the only things between your car and the tarmac. You're not only endangering yourself but endangering others too. It's your responsibility to make sure your car is roadworthy!.

Actually i'm not sure this is a good deal. Redex and other engine cleaners are so concentrated you get a few cleans form each bottle but this brand seems to indicate you put the entire bottle in (and that you should do it 3-4 times per year).

"1 bottle per treatment, and only 3-4 treatments required per year..."

A few on here think its for their cat, a warning should have been " In no case is this to be used in or on your cat".

For those that use it it is (or was); cheapest price it's ever been on amazon £9.55, £14 currently and £16 at Halfords so a good deal at £7.14

Thanks... having examined him, the vet thinks it's his DPF (doggy particulate filter) that's the problem.
