Found 10th Aug 2014
Was £4.00 now £2.00 also seen in store. When you've filled up (either with petrol or diesel) stick half the solution in your fuel tank. One bottle does two doses. Use it every few months.

This comes in at £2 in most places, at most times.

However, if you think it does any good, it's good value.

I use it - but I'm not actually sure it does anything in reality.

HOT as £2 is change ....

*EDIT* - put this in BEFORE you put fuel in, it mixes much better.

Not as hot as £2 in change in your pocket.

don't use on cars with DPF filters.

I used the petrol stuff years ago on a micra by poring through the air intake, the exhaust initially let out huge clouds of dark grey smoke that got lighter as I put my foot on the gas so it cleaned something.

conflicting reports here but fifth gears test gave good results,

not proven to work for all cars, but experts suggest trying it on your particular car to see if it works. I've tried it in my diesel kia and it worked

I didn't notice any difference with my polo but £2 is cheap for it i think i paid about £3.50 £4 at asda

Now i'm not going to say this stuff is rubbish and all your typical bad mouthing but...

I used this stuff in my Megane 225, as I had some black smoke coming from the back.

Didn't seem to help at all, so I moved up to BG 44K for petrol engines ( suppose to be the best stuff cost £20 per can) - this didn't do anything either.

So my next step was to go for a Terraclean at my local garage. - cost £108.

Only the terra clean has cured the problem, they run your car on the stuff for 45minutes ( disconnecting the fuel lines ).

The redex and bg 44k might have freed some carbon but only the terraclean resolved the problems I was having.

They claim to be boosters.
Redex is a cleaner.

If you run a Derv bang some 2 stroke oil in there instead

I would not use any of these on my car!

MY carb floats were sticking I can some of this though and problem solved as was said above it cleans.... not a super booster and dont forget sometimes a dirty / blocked up engine will run better..... as in give better compression so the choice is yours

Your biggest problem was that it's a Renault, No amount of additive would cure that lol.

I drive a 20 year old Astra mk3 ...now and again I use Redex....(when they are on special offers like this one)...all I can say is performance of my car improves...car is pretty low mileage at 48000...Redex seems to give it a boost in terms of acceleration and dear I say fuel economy? Well worth £2 a bottle

Very funny!

I love my megane 225, I think a valve was stuck open because of carbon.

May be placebo effect? Although I'm sure redex in general will do no harm.

My 2002 vw gt tdi 130 golf had issues with cutting out due to fuel not getting to where it should be in higher revs, simple overtaking on a duel carriageway was becoming impossible without the engine cutting out. (Im 40 with young kids & don't drive my car like an idiot) I had 3 garages look at this issue over the course of about a year. They could not solve the issue, in pure desperation before I got rid of the car I started to use redex & I have not had a problem in 2 years. Personally, although it's not been mechanically checked, I think this stuff has cleaned the areas of my engine that the mechanics could not see! Probably somewhere around the injectors. The car otherwise has never had any problem in 120000 miles!! I always buy this stuff when it's £2 and stock up with a dozen bottles or so as I use it every time I fill up. I vote hot because it keeps me driving a car that I love to drive!!

Just ignore him,he always makes the same childish comments when it comes to Renaults.Don't think his brain has made it past teenage years yet lol,either that or he has early onset dementia and that's the thing that is most relevant to him!

I love my Renault too the Megane 225s are fab

I remember my dad buying this back in the day and using it in his old Escort and then his nissan prairie-gosh that was a long time ago

He always said it was wonder stuff and I always believed anything he said lol

Then why you so defensive? It's an opinion in which a lot of people have especially when it comes to Renault.

Who'd listen to a "Take that fan" anyway? They sucked in the 90's and they suck now.

Helped my old micra get through its MOT, and it seemed like it improved running of the engine whenever I put it in but probably just a placebo effect. It might of slightly raised the octane levels or lubricated the cylinders I dont know. I dont think its such a bad product when its on offer, doesnt hurt to put some in before your MOT and go for a bit of an "Italian Tune Up".

I had a 20 year old MX5 in mint condition just used for less than 2000 miles a year ..... it struggled to get the emissions down for the MOT - I put a bottle of this in 1/4 a tank and blasted it for 20 miles high revs - back to MOT station and it flew through with a zero reading ........ it does something.

You're better off just using shell V-nitro petrol or diesel.

Millers works better for diesels. Keeps things clean and increases your cetane number. I stopped using it when I ran out and my economy dropped 10% for the 2 tankfuls I did without.

Oooh did that hit a nerve?

A lot of people will have that opinion when it comes to Renault which is fair enough as will people with other car makes-again fair enough. People are rightly so entitled to an opinion,yours however is constantly the same drivel and never seem to change. This post is about a deal for redex which is used by folk owning any kind of car but of course you would mention the same thing again and again.

If you read my comment as defensive then that's up to you,I couldn't care -I was pointing out a fact that your comments always take the same theme

As for the take that bit - gee whizz what an insult,I'm absolutely gob smacked at the nastiness of it and will most definitely not sleep tonight!!

No one needs to listen to me at all but equally I hope no one pays attention to your guff

A lot of people makes jokes about Renault, I think the reason they have electrical faults and other faults is because Renault give you so much with a car.

My Megane 225 is 2004 has cruise control air con and some mod cons like rain sensitive wipers etc, tyres pressure gauges.

My friend has just bought a Insignia and it doesn't have cruise control on it and seems more basic and it's a 14 plate, mines 10/11 years older now.

I just think the more sensors etc on a car the more things to go wrong, other cars might be more reliable because the cabin has blank plastic spacers where technology goes

Megane 225 is an amazing car, I have mine tunes to 255bhp and it's like an absolute rocket.

I have had two now and have never had any electrical problems yet though I have heard horror stories about others. Every car will have its known problems but some folk just like to go on and on.

My husband however had a Laguna and that was a heap,we got rid straight away. Now he has a friend who is a renault specialist and when I think back the problems could have been sorted cheapish but he didn't like the car much anyway. I wouldn't hesitate getting another Renault in the future.

I had my eye on a 225 a couple of years ago,I now have a 2010 coupe and just love it. Has tonnes of mod cons. I love the keyless entry and start - wouldn't want to go back to a key,unlocking and turning in ignition but that's just being lazy

Won't be parting with it for a while anyway

They claim to be boosters.Redex is a cleaner.

No.
The point *you* missed is that you linked to an entirely different type of product, in an attempt to compare them to the one linked here.

Redex has many tests to show that it works as a cleaner. The boosters have many tests to show they don't work as boosters.
Redex is sold as a cleaner.

Stop confusing matters when there is no need to.

Just avoid the diesels, especially the 1.9 dCi engines, as if the turbo goes, it's new engine time, as I found out on the M6 doing 70 in the 3rd lane in my Scenic
Dangerous with kids in the car, lots of stories about it happening when searching for it, but Renault turn their back on it and deny it.
Mine was always serviced at Renault main dealer since new, and they turned their back on it too.
Such as dangerous fault to have with cars that are designed for families and are likely to have kids in them.

I would not put this in my mower let alone any car the only product that I would use in my cars and do is Millers fuel additive, I work in the industry and believe me its the only one that works Google it and read the reviews

Hot deal

Thats crazy low mileage for a 20 year old car 2400 miles a year i take it, It gets driven to work locally and to the shops and thats it. I had a 13 year old Peugeot 206 i sold a few weeks back that was like your car it only had 18K miles on it from new.

My gf has a 1.9dci megane 3.

It's a great car didn't realise they had any turbo problems.

It's the same with any car if the turbo blows all the oil is going to get sucks from the sump and the engine will seize in next to no time.

I've always been under the impression if the turbo was to blow bang it straight it's 5th gear to stall the car. It's the only way you can stop it.

Very low mileage mate...bought it off the original elderly owner (79) who had to retire from driving because of a stroke and him losing his Mrs ..so he just wanted rid of it...full service history and he spent a small fortune on it...I payed £400 for it...I think six years ago and it hasn't cost me a penny to run....best car I have ever had by far...

The best thing is when/if you come to sell it you'll probably make money on it if it stays low.

I bought my last car for £900,ran it for 4 years-hardly cost a thing. Was going to scrap it but was offered near £700 for it last year I drove past it yesterday-tootling away quite the thing. Will be 14 years old shortly

I only put 20k on it in the 4 years
