Hi Greg,
Yeah, 200ml per 90 liters.
Been adding it for a few years now. Can't say that it gives any performance boost, just makes the injectors/Injector pump quieter.
Still use about 12.5L/km on average. At this piont in time I can't say that it has done any harm or not, everything seem to be running well.
Is this the thread you were referring to? 64542.

I've heard of it being used , BUT you must be careful of what type you use.

GM spec or Ford spec, I was told one was OK for Diesel's and one was not.

One dissolved the gasket material and started oil leaks, I can't find the guy who told me or find it on the Internet,

but I was told ,, so just in case I don't do it..

thats just because I'm the type of person who just doesn't believe everything I'm told..

Cheers

Richard
