1985 called, it wants its sludge back!
Personally I wouldn't want to use something like this in your engine oil, even after a drain there's going to be some residue left.

I think you'd be better off draining, getting a cheap engine oil in, taking it for a spin and then draining again, changing the filter and then putting in the engine oil of choice.

Yeah, I use cheap oil as a flush. Make sure you use same type as in mineral /semi synthetic / synthetic though.
Sludge STILL exists, thankfully its in those vehicles NOT maintained by people like yourselves...(although could have full history, be aware..seen a few engines going bang, with full service history, engines stripped, it was obviously sludged oil related)
Diesel engined vehicles MOST likely to suffer -well their oil can be worked very hard, especially too short journeyed, and during DPF regens..
I personally used this very product, granted not going to be AS effective as the Wynns/Forte...but, I was happy with results,
Carparts4less sucks. Still waiting for my stuff after 2weeks even though I payed next day delivery. Refuses to give me my money back.

If you have paid with paypal, you can contact paypal and get a refund.
does nothing.... just thins your oil... any sludge or gunge needs to be stripped & mechanically or chemically removed, 'may' help an old engine that's got hydraulic tappets and they're ticking... but so would thin clean oil
if a garage ever uses this as a service, f%$£ them off!
Waste of time, don’t use it

Well not only do I have a Diesel which has over 140,000 on the clock and was made in 2005, its also an alfa, so if anything was likely to go "bang", it would be that, but it runs like a dream.

For the record, I don't use this product or a flush oil, just do regular (every 6 or so months) oil changes with good quality oil and filter.

You would see a similar effect if you put Cadbury's creme eggs in your fuel tank
I wouldn't use it either especially on a high mileage car,if the car has had reasonably regular oil changes there's no need to use it....as others have said I would use a cheaper oil as a flush if the car needed it....I think this stuff is basically a can of diesel.
The Colour of Oil

When it’s light it’s alright
When it’s brown drain it down
When it’s black it’s just cack
