My Dirty Derv has hit 120k miles.

She is due a service and will be getting one sharpish, but iv been reading alot on here about people putting additives into their systems..

Now iv read alot that this stuff normally caused more bad than good, how right am i in saying this ?

Hope someone can she some light

Regards

Millers diesel Eco additive has really good reviews. I use it all the time.
It costs around ?11 for 10 fillups. Honestly try it for 3 tanks then not on the 4th, you'll never go back to just drev.

Do they really clean the injectors out?
well ive had (on older diesels) the emissions on some reading over 7% and just adding the treatment and taking for a drive has seen them pass at below 3%, ive also had some very smokey diesels and the forte stuff has sorted that aswell, we stock it at work so if you want some i can do it trade for you and send it up mate

I would not use a flush on a turbo diesel! Its ok if you have done it every service since new!!! but if not don't go there.

The last thing you want is blocking up the oil lines for the turbo with shifted gunk.

Other stuff i use is +1 for Millers (Bewarned it smells) and Molly slip for the gearbox! But if you have a fancy model with LSD don't use the molly slip.

I try and fill up once a month with bp ultimate or shell to give it a treat.

Other than that, i have a mate who swears by the millers stuff.

Ive never had any problems using motor flush, but i do see your point, altho i think Forte have a warranty after using there products, but as with anything you dont know how good until you need it
