Tried it on my JTDm. Does make the engine run much smoother and quieter .....no smoke was really happy with it. Used it for 2 months then stopped using it because it was another expense with already over expensive fuel.

yes tried it last year also on jtdm no negative effects, seemed smoother/quieter but then that may be placebo effect as i tested with a sound meter at the time and difference was in region of 0.1db-0.2db i think(had some vids on utube)which varied more anyway with weather conditions.not done since using up 2 bottles.
cold engine no 2 stroke vpower

warm engine 2 stroke and millers and vpower

0.5db difference but some of that was colder engine.

even cars 10yds away on road sent reading up 0.2-0.3db

vibration test no 2 stroke

vibration test 2 stroke etc

vibration test different engine temps on different days,but looks like a bigger difference than it was at the time.

Just add a litre of vegetable oil to the tanks-works the same, but a lot cheaper.

a litre per tank is near enough a 2% solution like used in 2 stroke engines... surely 0.5% or 250-300Ml per tank should be enough just to lube the pump and injectors?

It ll probably run ok on 2 litres with no prob-cheaper than diesel as well and no tax, thats why. For lube purposes, you need only add as little as a dessert spoonful.

Used to run my Tipo on 95% veg oil, 4% Diesel Redex and 4% petrol, its can be a bit more complex on common rail engines though, so not got around to running those ratios in my 1.9 16v
