Save yourself £4.50 and do the special diesel dance when you fill your car up. I've been doing it for years and never been attacked by a bear.
Hi Mr Garage Service Department.

My 6 month old £30,000 car was sounding a bit funny and the engine light came on. Can you have a look under warranty please.
Certainly Sir.
Thanks, I did put some additive in to see if that would make it better.
Ohh really sir.. on page 65 of the manual it states additives should never be used with this engine.
Ohh
Yes sir, please take your keys and close the door on the way out.

2-EHN is the only active ingredient in Millers Ecomax. So you just as well use pure stuff and don’t pay extra for kerosene used in Millers for bulking

This brand seems established so is not going to mess up anything, but then again, it's also unlikely to do much more than what a couple of tanks of premium diesel would do. It does cost less than the difference in price for even a single tank of premium diesel though, over standard diesel, so might be better value. I wouldn't put this into a tank of premium diesel though, just in case. I'd stick it into an empty tank then brim it with cheap supermarket diesel. Give it a good blast down the motorway (when engine is warm!) including some hard accels, ideally starting above 2000rpm already, and it should do its job. This is only good for cleaning injectors, but they do get coked up with soot over time, so it is recommend that you put in a tank of premium diesel every 5 tanks or so, then you don't need this stuff, as that's what premium diesel is designed to do. If you do lots of short journeys and never put premium diesel, then this might be for you, otherwise, don't bother!


The only extra thing that premium diesels contain is 2-ethylhexyl nitrate, same thing as millers eco max. But you can actually buy it on eBay 5 liters for £30. At 100ml per 50 liters of diesel it’s much cheaper than shelling out on premium diesel of redex...

Not recommended for modern diesels
I’ve seen these today, I didn’t buy as they are small bottles but maybe handy for someone

I agree, Millers actually works whereas Redex 'snake oil' just gives you the placebo effect in modern diesels.
If you really do have a problem with a sooted up diesel car shove a bottle of Forte diesel in the tank and give your car a high revving 3rd or 4th gear blast down the motorway then start using Millers every fill up.

Quick question about this tried looking online but could not find answer ...

Do you add before fill up or just after you done the fill?

If I fill up £10 of fuel per fill up, would I add a shot or do I have to fill up ALOT

Lastly every fill up, or once a month?

Cheers In advance

If your question is about the Forte you put the entire bottle in before adding maybe £10 worth of fuel to a near empty tank.
As for the Millers you add it before you refuel and there is a guide on the bottle to help with the amount you need, I would double dose the first time filling because you will really notice the difference after maybe 50 miles when it starts working.
Even my wife noticed the difference after a few hundred miles of using it and she commented the car was quieter and smoother and wanted to know what I'd done to it.
Use Millers every time you add diesel.

Just looking on amazon a bottle is £14.77 so add that to every fill ouch that’s gona get pricey
I tend to put BP ultimate in every few tanks and that can sometimes help lumpy diesels

Is that the cetane enhancer they talk about? is that the extra lubrication? Or the extra cleaning effect?.
I usually buy the BP premium diesel for those effects. And yes I can certainly tell the difference.

If there's a cheap way to do it , then I'd love to hear about it, will Millars do that?
Noooooooooo don't do it! Modern fuels and oils have all additives built it. This isn't the 1970's folks.......and def don't use in a modern diesel. Stick to post war tractors.........no hang on even pink diesel will have built in additives!

'seems to work' sums up these additives. Unless u run a long term test with 2 identical engines it's just perception and placebo. I've used slick50 and molyslip in many old cars and they both have a quick boost before returning mpg back to normal after a few hundred miles so an expensive way of saving a few quid on fuel when u paid a tenner for the additive in the first place.......

I can go ahead and say I can tell the difference everytime.
I've done anecdotal test with friends and colleagues and they found the same, slightly higher but noticeable MPG, and slightly increased but noticable power. It also depended on the engine, on only 3 cases it made no difference. On every other , definitely.
We didn't do this in controlled conditions, but we tried to test this as objectively as possible, like skeptics, we genuinely wanted to bust this myth. And most were certainly skeptical!
With our small sample size, we overwhelmingly found this made a difference.
We found that we may as well just stick to the premium fuel as it didn't work out that expensive given the increased MPG and extra power.

Whats a good way to mix and use this stuff, and did you see videos of people who mix 2 stroke engine oil for smoothness and noise improvements?.
Always use Miller's Ecomax diesel additive in my car and never had a problem...flies through MOT emission test every time too...also use Miller's Nanodrive oil in car and that's brilliant stuff too...

50 to 150ml per 50 liters of diesel. Personally just use 50ml straight to fuel tank before each fill up. Noticeably quieter
OOS
Jet fuel is the best

500ML Millers Ecomax is £13.99 in halfords, so each treatment will cost £1.40 as it gives 10 treatments

You only need to add Forte when needed for instance if your diesel car is running $hit or has just failed it's mot on smoke or emmisions.
For everyday regular use Millers as a preventive treatment, regular millers use will prevent the need for Forte and Millers lasts for ages because you only need a small amount added to the tank each fill up.
