Extra is like a flush, use once in 7K kms instead of daily usage.

Since 2002, I have been using Castrol Max Fuel Booster. I bought 2 boxes ( Each contain 12 bottles of 250ML). Whenever I use it, I always felt as if my car is gliding on road. It is mentioned to use only 0.5ml for 1 Litre of petrol.


It has a MRP of Rs. 250/- for 250 ML but I bought 24 bottles for Rs. 2000/- under some scheme at that.

I have finished a bottel(5 Tankfuls) and trust me there is no major difference you would notice, its all psychological. At least this is what i experienced in my case, my car is extremely well maintained, so no issues of car being bad and nothing works and i dont feel its "the magic portion" for your engine.

pramod saar , I guess the impact varies with the engine. In my indica, the difference in NVH is enough to disturb my neighbours otherwise

There is also IFTEX Cleam System G/D which is to be used for Petrol/Diesel cars as the link suggests. Have been using the bottle during every refuel and till now the results are good. The engine is lot more smoother.

Ford ASC seem to have run out of stock, atleast in Bangalore.
So, I called up TATA Dealers, & guess what , every ASC has stock.
System-D available in Tata ASC have different sticker with photos of Tata Sumo & Indica on them, & the words " Tata Motors co-branded products" & " approved for Tata Sumo/Safari/Indica", other than that there is no difference, they have old stock & hence old price: RS.198 for 250ml instead of Rs.250 for 250ml.
I just picked up from concorde motors. The guy looked at me in a strange way when I asked him as to how many bottles of System-D stock he was left with.
I picked up 5 bottles for Rs.990/-
Bought System D from BP Jeevan Bheema Nagar Outlet six days ago, the Prerana Motors (old Madras Road) workshop was out of stock.

The price you have quoted is correct. I normally get the System G from the BPCL petrol pump where I normally refuel every time.

Hi,

Just bought Iftex System-D from BOSCH service centre,Vadapalani,Chennai costs Rs.250. Did anyone used in Fiesta diesel as FORD does NOT recommend any fuel additives for their diesel cars. Also, do we use this only when we fill the full tank or can be used in the ration of 1ml per litre. Kindly help me out to use this further.. Thanks in advance.

Jebs, I have purchased Sys-D from the Ford A.s.S. and used it in the Ikon. Have not noticed any problems. I use this once in a way.

Recommended to add just before filling up so that it helps get mixed. It should not harm to add in between, but the quantity being small, not all the added fluid will reach the fuel. Some will evaporate too. Hence it may help to add when you are at the bunk, just about to re-fuel.

Thanks a lot condor. I've just checked with FORD Service Advisor as well 15 mins back, He also confirmed that there is no harm to put Sys-D for fiesta diesel engines. But 1ml per ltr should be followed. Will be doing that today.
