    Millers Eco diesel treatment

    Hi can anyone say how often I should use the Millers
    treatment, do I put 50ml in with every tank full? Or every few? The bottle will do 10 tanks,

    Thanks,

    I'm sure @NealP will be along shortly to confirm this but iirc after initial standard doses of 50ml per tank he halved it to 25ml and has since reduced this to 25ml every other fill up.

    Thanks,
    I was told by Neil to do 50ml for the first couple of tank fills then 25ml each thank full after that well that's what I do
    It does make a difference and the main reason to use it is to keep your injectors in good condition I use the ecomax one

    Thanks Simon & Jim,

    il do 5 tanks at 50ml then cut to 25ml, I'm on my 2nd tank so far this month, like you Jim I'm doing it to clean up the injectors, hopefully they will not need replacing at some point in the future.. I can only hope ;-)

    Did you double dose the 1st tank? thats what I did with my sludger then dropped to single dose every tank but as said @NealP said he'd reduced the dosage even further.
    tbf your injectors are probably originals so 11/12 yrs old and if they're already worn or damaged you can't reverse the damage, saying that millers treats the whole fuel system
    so for a few pence extra per tankful its gotta be worth it

    Just use the treatment as you like but the missus's car has low miles so that is why I reduced the dosage. Great substitute for V-Power ...and Simon, petrol one is just as good . Use INPA to reset the air intake adaptions once in a while and you will notice the power

    I put single in the first time, then read the back of the bottle, do put double dose in yesterday, As you say any damage would have already been done, but of it helps them last a few more year il be happy,
