Found 17th Oct 2016
Redex diesel cleaner usually £4 now half price, I use this regularly in my diesel bimmer which helps reduce smoke and I get a few extra mpg!

Not sure if this is local but Tesco online it's £3, usually £4!

Instore only went looking for the rainx deal which I couldn't find.

if I use premium diesel , will adding redex give me any additional benefits?

This is kind of over priced if you have Costco membership. This is the 2 shot bottle, Costco do a 4 pack of 4 shot bottles for about £13.

At £1 a shot vs 81.25p a shot it's not bad. Depends on how much you use it. If (like some people do) and use it as a additive using a bit every tank then it's probably be better buying in bulk from Costco.
I grabbed a pack of the 4 single shot bottles from wilko for £4. Less messing about, no open bottles in the car. Use every 3 month or so.

Paid £4.00 in asda yesterday. Bummer. Hot deal.

Mixed messages from previous threads on wether these things actually work or just more of a placebo.

Bg244 is very good and yes it's £20 a can but I've used it yearly and works great on getting rid of lumpy idle and poor acceleration flat spots.

Diesels which smoke have a build up of soot in the catalyst which reduces it's efficiency. Chances are if your diesel is smoking you also have a clogged DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) both of which can be unclogged by dismantling and careful cleaning or "burning off the soot" by increasing the temperature of exhaust gases.

Diesels are best used for high mileage (100k+ miles over 5 years or roughly 80+ mile 5 working day commute) where they will naturally "burn off" this soot. If you drive less than this or find your diesel smoking try heating up your catalyst once the engine is up temperature. Leave it in 3rd at 60/70mph to heat the exhaust up.

Don't do this you will definitely knacker your engine.

​Non sense adam. Whenever I have been stuck stationary for a long time, say a motorway closure, My DPF comes up and the onboard system tells me to keep driving with info to lower current gear. I.e. I did 50-60 in third and 4th gear for 70. worked fine. Burnt off the particles quickly. Once engine is up to temp of 90 then normal driving will burn it off as it runs normally. Spoke to my garage who advise on a colder start engine dont idle too long as the DPF will keep appearing. Need to either get to temp with driving ++miles or lower gears at higher speeds. A full DPF will certainly 'knacker' your engine!

Thanks. This is ideal. The wife is due a service.

Yes but to start with you also said drive at 60-70 in 3rd gear, this will all depend on gear ratios of a car. If I did this in mine I old knacker my engine as it would be redlining to the oint of over revving. But it can be useful if you don't do a lot or often to drop a gear when doing 60-70 on a motorway to help the DPF.

cant find the diesel one online

Don't know about the 3rd or 4th gear thing but when i leased my Diesel Infinity Q50 the dealer told me to take it for a good run at speed at least once a week to clean out the DPF if i was just doing local runs every week, if i return it clogged up i would have to pay for a new one.
