Hello All,

Just wondered if anyone else had tried this stuff - bought from Halfords to add to my tank. It is suppost to give the engine a good clean up and improve power and emissions?!

Anyone tired it - what were the results?

Thanks all

Andy

I think it's essentially kerosene and ethanol, so you get a clean-out of your injectors, and smoother running while the stuff is in there (since ethanol has a monster octane rating).

Some engines respond better than others since they have more sensors to take advantage of the fuel. More basic engines don't... but then they still run better on the higher octane stuff, so it's always worth a punt.

Tesco's 98 RON petrol is supposed to be the best high octane petrol out there (maybe wrong?) so you can run on that later on, if your car responds well to the Hot Snot. It may work out marginally cheaper... (though petrol prices these days, maybe about the same).
