Thanks greenhorn. Again a typo.

When I showed System G to Sai Service MASS, he also adviced me not to use it. The recommended vehicle list in the bottle has only Tata vehicles. But I have found many bhpians using System G/System D. They are getting good results.

Those who are using System G/System D in Maruti vehicles, please confirm.

Thanks

Many A.S.S dont even know the names of additives whether approved or not. Their awareness level on these kind of products is very very poor.

I was trying to find System D Extra but its difficult to locate in bangalore.
I'm not sure if it was "System G Extra" and yes the instructions did mentioned to use the next fill at every 7500kms and so the service advisor.

Well the TATA A.S.S are prompt to advise using additives like System G for fuel and Bardhal for Oil. Typically a sales gimmick.

I only choosed System G for first service. In next 2nd service i would try the Bardhal additive for oil!

IFTEX System D update: I used System D during my last tank full. Usually I get FE of 17 to 17.5 kmpl ( tankful to tankful ). Yesterday I filled my tank again. Mixed System D again. FE I got was 19.43kmpl ( City running, 50% AC). Tank was filled at Shastri Nagar BP Bunk. For those in Pune will know this route - Aundh - Dange Chowk - Nigdi - Talwade and same way back. There is also lot of running in old city on weekends.

System D rocks. Please note that this FE is on my 92000 odd run Indica V2 DLS.

Take care and Drive Safely

let it run 10 or 15 km. if you think there is no benefit, I'd be glad to take it off your hands
not sure if it helps swifts, but it does wonders for the indica diesel engines . The difference system D makes is the same as with premium diesel, only this is a lot cheaper ( .8 rs vs 3 rs / litre )
