Do fuel treatments make sense?
I drive a 2.0 litre diesel car and I monitor the miles per gallon (mpg) very closely using the on board trip computer, but also my manually calculating after filling the tank. During my years driving I have used various diesel and petrol treatments and have certainly noticed the difference in both reduced fuel consumption and power/acceleration. So in that respect, I’m not suggesting anything other than they do what they are claiming. I always use one before the M.O.T, as it is becoming more difficult to pass the emission tests and a good dose of treatment improves the exhaust.
My thoughts turn to the production, transport and waste from these on-the-shelf products. By the time they have been manufacturesd, bottled and in some cases transported around the world how much environmental damaged would have been caused? I don’t have the facts nor the figures, but I doubt whether a few extra miles out of a tank of diesel or slightly cleaner exhaust fumes would make up the damage. I would love someone with some data to comment/discuss.
My conclusion would be to drive less overall!!
