Hi All

Most people say it works some say its a bunch of bull*. So I am asking for an honest opinion. Does it really work? I am really considering it. I am not mentioning any brands becasue I am open to any brand that gives noticable results.

Many thanks

Best place to post this would be https://mybroadband.co.za/vb/forumdisplay.php/164-Motoring-and-Transportation-Cars-Bikes-and-Planes

Perhaps a mod can move it for us.

BG44K and Liqui Moly fuel treatment I would say work best. BG44K you cant get here anymore, but people in USA rave about it. Liqui Moly I say works well because when I used it in my car the oil went from a fairly presentable clearish gold colour to black. That in my mind tells me there was definately cleaning going on. Uses it again a few weeks ago, but this is in a pretty new one year old car, and the oil stayed pretty clear (guess there was not that much to clean on a car so young).

If you mean Diesel injectors, well worth a try as that shyte is expensive to replace. For normal cars, I won't even bother. I have had card with over 500k kms and never had a single issue with regards to the injectors :)

Was busy trying to move it. Didn't notice I was in this section. I would really appreciate the move MODS.

Thanks for the feedback. I always prefer word of mouth. I must just do it right before an oil change so that I don't drive around with filthy oil :) I hope I also get positive results

Are your injectors actually dirty and require cleaning?

Because if they aren't the question is ultimately pointless.

Why do you think you need it? Are you not maybe looking for a solution to a problem that doesn't exist?

I use it on my diesel car, not sure if it works lol. The car has plenty of miles on it, and it keeps on running.

I use the Liqui-Moly diesel injector cleaner, goldwagon sells it for R100.

Awww....we are Ligui Moly buddies! :love:

Also get mine from Goldwagon. The petrol one is like R130.00 or so I think.
