thanks for that info basil, I am pretty happy with 11.2l/100 out of my old tech motor with double roof racks, canopy etc and a reasonable "load" in the tray. Like you, I check my economy reasonably regularly, my father who was a MM engineer always taught me it was the best way to monitor the general health of my engine. Then, on top of usual general maintenance, to investigate possible / probable issues. In 54 years of driving, its been good advice from him to me. cheers, Lana

Just a point Dicko, the fuel enhancer is strictly aimed at keeping the injectors clean and lubricated. Where as some additives need to be added in much larger volumes to get a similar effect, the enhancer additive clings like mad to components under pressure and hence doesn't need to be added in anywhere like the volume of other stuff. Have run the 2T in it and very nice.
The amount of vehicles they have been able to pull back as the injector compensations wonder is quite impressive. I have nothing to do with these guys, but have talked to them for years and run their stuff and done my own research depending on the vehicle owned at the time.
I have the old NP 3.2 and have found that for me personally, 20 mls of the cleanpower and 30mls of the ftc mixed, seems to provide the best general improvement in the way the engine performs, which is less ftc than is recomended.
I can get it to take off from stand still in a more responsive way for city type driving by putting a little more of the ftc in the mix, which is very noticable and nice to have but it comes at the expense of a little more clatter from the injection as the burn is happening a little quicker. Swing and round abouts.
Not having a common rail, which would adjust seetings based around the change in fuel quality, the Np is what it is.
Have started running the Bi tron diesel additive again over the last few weeks and will see differences no doubt.

Good luck fishing mate.

Still think I'm a bit weird. It's all fun.

Cheers,

Well I ordered some FTC Decarbonizer, Flushing Oil Concentrate, and CRD Fuel Enhancer (even though mine is DiD, he said get the CRD as it has better lubricating properties).
Will update on my thoughts once I have run it for a few tanks.
I have tried a few others previously, but never really noticed any difference.

Direct from CEM online (www.costeffective.com.au). Free express postage. I spent about half an hour chatting about their various products and pros/cons and Jimmy was really helpful. If you have any queries, he is more than happy to chat.

Is there any update yet with you using the FTC and Flushing oil concerntrate?

I'm using the CRD fuel enhancer and I have noticed a bit of a difference with turbo lag, both at a stop and when travelling at 80kph and overtaking...there is an improvement.
The really big difference I have noticed with using the CRD enhancer is the less time taken for start up and exhaust smoke I was once having...now its non issue.
You sit next to a Toyota D4D on start up...good 5 10 seconds...for the diesel V8's as well, start the Paj diesel now...3 seconds max.
