    National wide West Midlands too
    I always buy this when it's on offer at Tesco. Some doubt it's benefits, but I think it does help clean youre injectors and it is an upper cylinder lubricant. Probably not going to make an extreme difference, but for £2 it's worth it.

    If you want to make an extreme difference to a rough running older vehicle then Extra Lube ZX1 and other ZDDP additives really do make a difference (though it is supposedly harmful to catalytic converter/DPF but some motor oils have it in anyway , though in smaller quantities these days unless you buy "Classic" motor oil).

    But I haven't had any probs and it always makes my familys used cars and motorcycles run smoother over the years. My dad first bought it from QVC circa 1995. Also put abit in the power steering fluid, the radiator coolant, never had any issues.
    also in bramley tesco leeds
    Also in Chester store too

    Apparently Forte advanced formula is the stuff to go for.

    Hard to find in stores though as its meant for trade only. Sold on ebay though.

    The second best product would be millers.

    Never used any myself though.

    So it cleans fuel system but knackers your 500 cat? Really worth the risk.?
    Same price in Wilko too I think.
    What's better than snake oil? CHEAP SNAKE OIL!

    Redex doesnt do that, ZDDP additives supposedly can be poisonous to CAT's and DPF's (according to forum talk that is, and maybe some obscure info somewhere. Yes I get the irony that this is forum talk, but you have to take forum talk with a big pinch of salt.

    I imagine it would have to be in large concentrations for it to do serious harm, some extra ZDDP being in your engine oil shouldn't even be reaching the Cat/DPF, well only in tiny amounts due to the tiny amount of oil being burnt.

    I think the real reason for less ZDDP in today's modern engine oils is to do with cost, environmental impact and if your like me, maybe it's a bit too good for today's planned obsolescence agenda. Personally I wouldn't worry, the benefits out weigh the supposed risk. My family have used Extra lube ZX1 in 15+ vehicles, never had an issue with CATS. Used in Saab petrols, Mercedes Petrols, Subaru Petrols, Nissan Petrols, Renault Diesel, Citroen Diesel, VW Diesel, Kia Diesel etc etc.

    And if you have an older diesel that didn't come with a DPF or an old petrol that is worth peanuts then you truly do not need to worry, in my opinion.
