YES!! Mostly may be taking delivery of the car form Cochin -(logistical reasons) - The debate is whether to run the vehicle in first before installing it .... ORrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ????

Ummm... guys... I would suggest that you first stop using the premium variety of the fuel. I tried out the combination and did not find any difference except for the price :P That is if the pump is a good reputed one. I took the confirmation from experts in the automotive fields as well as owners who have had a lot of past exp in the matter. The verdict was always the same. The premium variety of diesel is always a lot of gas (pun intended).

If you really want some cleaners add them separately with the regular diesel. Also, if the smoke problem persists change the pump. You will be surprised that once you start filling from a reputed pump more often than not the problem vanishes.

Default Update




Here is the update -

Just back from a mad 465 km Blast ... Smoked every moving thing on the road ... NO SMOKE - better still got 17.93kmpl - despite all that spirited driving! When you consider a normal filter (waiting for methods to give me my replacement for the wrong K&N they had sold me), Fatter Rubber 195/60 - R14's and some gear-grind - IS GOOD - what say? (No ... no petes box in this car)


Most of all NO SMOKE - even under hard accelaration... Guess we can put the lid on that one!

Default Can be closed

Yes I agree too on this. I have done a lot of interstate driving and I haven't faced the issue with XtraMile and TurboJet

I think we can request the Mod's to close the thread..

Cheers
