Was in Asda in Hamilton and they had these upstairs on an end. Thought it was pretty decent value as it's in £4.99 in Halfords for one 250ml bottle!

Cant find it online, so assuming its in-store only.
Was posted at £7 less than a week ago!

Fantastic for oiling your reptile!

I use it if I'm making teriyaki badger

This was also posted at £4.50/4 bottles at Wilko last week, which is I suppose a slightly better deal than this one.

I noticed that too but reading the reviews on Wilko it mentions that they're only 90ml bottles.

No, the other one was 4 x 100ml (400 ml) while this one is 3 x 250ml (750ml). Definitely a better price!

Is this nation wide?

I suppose so, but I suspect the amount of detergent is not that critical, one just adds a small bottle per tankful (be it 90cc or 250cc does not seem to matter much).

When this was advertised last week there was much debate about whether it did any good or not, and the general consensus was that it was a waste - the expert opinion being that it was far more sensible to change the motor oil regularly and frequently.

I recall trying this out once with a 20 year old Saab 900 (the previous owner had left a couple of bottles in the boot). It made no discernible difference; over the next 10,000 miles I changed the motor oil three times (whenever Asda was having a sale at £12/gallon) and the oil that came out was noticeably less contaminated each time. From that (not very scientific) experiment I concluded that the best thing for petrol engines (especially older ones) is frequent oil changes, and that additives probably had no effect at all.

I think it does have some benefits according to this video

That was interesting - quite scientific and showed a clear improvement of about 2-3% in an older car. In that case I'm convinced it would be worth using Redex occasionally (perhaps once per year) - as the presenter said, once it is clean, it is clean.
Thank you for that.
