Stu I find putting a little petrol in the tank along with the water makes the engine go better,

I use Forte Diesel Treatment about twice a year, fill both fuel filters with is and put the rest in each tank....Why?....because although its quite expensive if fair cleans out the injectors etc and improves the emissions.
I originally used it on a truck that would just not pass its emissions test, we put new pumps and injectors in it and it still wouldnt pass, so a rep came in from Forte selling his wares and I made him a deal that if his stuff would get it through a test then I would buy it. He gave me a gallon of this stuff and told me to fill the filters, disconnect the fuel line from the tank and run the engine on it straight from the tin, it smoked like buggery and then started to clear but the next day it passed its test even to the point of the examiner asking how we managed to change the engine so quickly.

I have used Asta 3000 which i got from QVC to great effect.
also used Forte in a customers engine didn't do a thing but he did have 3 broken springs in the injector pump, so that is why it didn't do anything.
I am useing Fuel set at the moment, haven't noticed any differance.

I usually buy 4 small bottles and use about 1 1/2 per engine filter and dump the rest in each tank. I'm not sure if the do a petrol treatment.
