FUEL AD­DI­TIVES

Performance Vauxhall - - TECH -

There is a high num­ber of fuel ad­di­tives avail­able to take ad­van­tage of. Per­haps un­sur­pris­ingly, all claim to de­liver mirac­u­lous re­sults! In truth, most try to im­prove per­for­mance by clean­ing your car’s fuel sys­tem com­po­nents – mainly in­jec­tors, but even the in­side of the engine – with spe­cial fo­cus on in­creas­ing the oc­tane of your cho­sen fuel. While all re­spected brands will prom­ise pos­i­tive im­pact, don’t go ex­pect­ing mag­i­cal re­sults ev­ery time. This ap­plies mainly to prod­ucts specif­i­cally mar­keted as oc­tane boost­ers. They’re not go­ing to turn reg­u­lar un­leaded into ful­lon race fuel, no mat­ter how much you might want them to!
