Millers Eco Max
#1
Just bought a new bottle of Millers and noticed it is quite a different colour.  Anyone else noticed this or have I just got a 'dodgy' bottle.  If not, I hope they've not changed anything else about it and that it still works as well as it always has done.

I was dissing Millers, not you!

Snake Oil

Actually, it's probably that the colour of the Asda diesel that they fill the bottles with that has changed. Before they add a bit of smelly stuff of course.

Absolutely no offence taken by me, doofer - just my poor attempt at humour.

As for this snake oil, looks like good stuff - might look into getting some.

I had to look up what was being discussed as I'd never heard of it!

This is something I found http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/33...aste-money

I used to use Slick50 in my bikes until several mechanics told me it was a waste of money. Does anyone see any measurable improvements using additives?

A lot of big fleets are now using Millars they ask the bulk fuel people they are in contract with to add it at source. scientific tests done by the IRTE and milbrooks research team have proven less smoke and slight increase in mpg, between 2 and 4 mpg extra when your trucks are only doing 9 mpg as standard is a lot! How do i know this although retired now i am still a member of the IRTE and IENG. Shell add their own version to their diesel+ and the fleets using that stuff report the same benefits as the fleets using Millars.

I use the stuff in everything i have owned and have found it does help to stop smoking diesels, my relay smoked when i purchased it with 80k on the clock. I sold it with 150k on the clock and the guy that bought it said he had been looking for a good one for a year and inspected 50+ vans. He could not believe how clean the emissions were when reved.

My little Berlingo tends to do about 4mpg extra with no smoke and the engine feels smoother. Other diesel vehicles i use it in have had varying results but all had some benefit. The petrol version in my bikes over winter and it stops the fuel going off and the injectors gumming up. Friends and family who i have recommended it to have all found results like mine.

Snake oil?

Why dont you all try it and see?

Started using it in my Peugeot 407. The car seems to be running smoother. Dont know whether it's just wishful thinking.
Need to run it linger to see if any noticeable increase in fuel consumption.
