Post by ~Ray~ » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:01 am

What do you rekon?
Are these diesel additives that claim to clean the injectors any good?

I would not put too much faith in the snake oil vendors.

Have you had a fuel contamination problem water in the fuel or the bug , when was the last time you checked the primary filters?

Check the filter, change the element if nescesary, if you have a sump drain in the tank drain off any crud and treat it with a biocide such as Grotamar 71.

Having the injectors clened and serviced is not that expensive and worthwhile doing after the above. Go to a Bosch fuel shop.
