used this twice and seems to do more bad than good..

Old fashioned product, seems to have been around forever and never heard a good thing about it. Surely if it did what it claims all the manufacturers would recommend it......none do!

I put this snake oil in my Fiesta, now drives like a Porsche...

Why car manufacturer should recommend you third party product for 3quid and leave their mechanics without job and opportunity to rip you off?! 80% drivers just pay ridiculous amounts in garages for nothing. Especially diesiels "oh your EGR was faulty, put new one in... 300quid" Just say that you cleaned it...
This type of things do work. You just need to know when and how to use it! Also gives you some extra miles and power.

This stuff goes down a treat when I run out of lager!

I drive a diesel saab. I dont drive it hard. is it worth using this stuff. .thanks. .

Good stuff IMO.

I have a 1.6 TDCi (Diesel) Focus and the engine suddenly started to sound like a sewing machine about 9 months ago, though it still seemed to drive OK. Not sure if it was a blocked or sticking injector or EGR Valve, but after about a week of the noise I added a full bottle of redex to the diesel two times and the noise went and never came back.

If I had not tried the Redex, i would have had to taken it to a garage to fix.

Both petrol and diesel have solvents added to prevent the gumming up of injectors. This stuff is just naphtha solvent. A 1.6tdci engine sounds like a sewing machine IF your lucky - you don't buy a cheap 4 pot diesel for its acoustic benefits. Most people with diesel engine problems have dirty DPF's from repeated short journeys about town - take your car out on the motorway @70mph and drive it in 4th at high revs for 10miles. The DPF will regenerate and clear, problem solved.

This stuff is a waste of money - except in very old vehicles that have been stood for a while.

This French designed engine is a poor evil... Just read some forums to have a clue how careful you should be with it... Redox won't solve the problem.

PS. I have a Mazda 3 with the same engine and my last repair was about £700 (turbocharger, fuel pomp, etc).

thats strange its a nationwide deal , try taking to customer services and get them to override it or try scanning in first incase they forgot to put new labels up

will try that tomorrow

Additives do work, that's a proven fact. Some are better then others and RedEx isnt one I'd recommend.
If you want to use an additive go to a Motor Factor and buy a more reputable firm or even better go to a Garage and buy a top range brand although cost a bit more money.

Some absolute 'tosh' comments above based on NO FACTS ... Redex is very good brand and has been for years, and is best in class. For the sceptics above i will make it very easy ... look into 'improved fuels' at the pumps and look back into the history of Redex at the pumps (penny shot of redex) and now MOT requirements ... REDEX WORKS, Fact, for new and old engines.

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE from a mechanic that uses regularly to get cars through emission tests on MOT's

All the mechanics I know recommend Forte for emissions tests.

I agree, buy cheapest fuel and use Redex like every third fill up or what is really good is the advanced formula.

Gotta agree with you, I had three years of a 2.0 hdi 136. I will never buy anything with a diesel PSA lump in again. Cost per mile including repairs worked out more than running an Evo.

Or simply spend the money you're wasting on Redex on better quality fuel.

fantastic my lawn mower wont work without this stuff, something is gummed up inside it but redex gets it working again!

I noticed earlier, that my local ASDA sells 'premium' fuel, or is advertised as such, however on the pump it says '95RON', I assume this is just super-juiced up Additived / Detergent fuel just with the lower Octane?

It seems to be faster off the mark from asda fuel than it does at Sainsburies fuel (and it's 0.2P cheaper!)

Tempted to use this REDEX stuff, but unsure if there's any complications from using it.

No, done the maths ... stick with Redex is my advice. I now Forte lubes and i'm sure does a similar job but always use Redex at our garages, have done for years. At least more sensible chat occuring, but crash out time.

Use with CONFIDENCE, just slam it in (as to speak!)

Saw this in my local tesco but I didn't know what it was?

I used to use this frequently until someone told me it didn't work.... Now I don't know what to believe! oO

Hear! Hear!

Do people think the likes of Shell, with their multi-billion dollar operation, simply add stuff like this to the regular fuel and call it V-Power? No, they have massive research and development departments that'll make whatever the companies responsible for Redex have, look like a child's Home & Bargain chemistry set.

Just buy decent fuel in the first place and stop believing stuff like this, added to cheap, supermarket fuel every once in a while, makes a difference.

"Premium" grade is 95RON (BS EN 228). Standard unleaded is less, 92RON or so, but you can't buy it in the UK. For anything more than Premium the manufacturers use another word, like Advanced.

guys, think u need to do your homework and how additives work, some very un-informed views. The likes of REDEX, STP, FORTE, WYNNS they all have additves. They WORK, fact. I use redex and have done for years (qualified mechanic)

Most standard fuel is 95Ron, Premium is 97Ron at most garages I use.

From what I've read I believe Redex will only work if used regularly.

You use one bottle and probably wont do much, use it every time you fill up and you may see a difference.

It's like brushing your teeth once a month!!



Mm minty fresh

Maybe so, but doesn't alter the fact that 95RON can be (and is) called Premium as long as it's BS EN 228.

I put this monkey juice in my previous car and screwed up the fuel pump... avoid at all costs!. Probably do more good used as an anabolic steroid substitute.

No I meant 95Ron is pretty much the standard fuel, 97Ron is premium here in the UK. In fact I haven't seen any garage sell unleaded under 95Ron.

Again, that was my point. The basic, lowest RON (95) fuel available in the UK is allowed to be called "Premium" by the standard. We simply can't buy anything less than Premium.
