Petrol/Diesel additives

Has anyone used any treatments or additives for their 147? I have bought some additive for the engine from the motor show a while ago but haven't put it in yet. There are also loads of treatments/additives available from Halford but I wonder if they actually work.

Please let me know of your experiences whether good or bad.

I've not used them myself - there are often posts on here on this subject - you can find them by searching using the term 'additive' etc.

Re: Petrol/Diesel additives

You really do not need them if you use a top quality diesel such as Shell Ultimate Diesel .

However an occassional adition of something Forte Diesel additive certainly wont harm and more likely to help the engine run better.

On a petrol car I add a 'cleaner' every 5000 kms(3000 miles) but no idea for a diesel.
