Its not a Magic potion to enhance performance, its a mild additive that cleansthe fuel system, thats it. Now depending on your engine condition you might experience negligible to good improvements.

Yeah, I have been using System G for more than a month by now and I couldn't feel any difference.

Sameer, you can use Sys-G.

First time : 40 ml ( assuming your tank capacity is 40 litres)
Next time : as many ml as the num of liters you fill

Same cycle each time you take a break from using Sys-G

I am not sure about whether it is officially recommended for BS3, but logically BS4 impemented this year and the product is in market from long time. I have used it in my 2007 WagonR.

For your second query, Its recommended value is 1 ml to a litre of petrol, in the bottle is there are markers for 10, 20 & 30 ML, press the bottle the solution will come to appropriate mark/level and put in the tank before filling.
so app 30 ml for 27 ltr. I have seen Most of the pump attendent are aware of this product and they fill it accordingly.

Condor, does the engine become coarse or a little sluggish if System G is stopped after a period of usage? I have a Fiesta petrol and I am thinking of putting System G. My concern is what happens if the product is discontinued.

No, the bottle has markers for only 5ml & 10 ml.

When you are using it, your injectors etc are cleaned of any foreign particles .. and the engine feels smooth. When you stop using it, you will not feel a difference immediately. Gradually, the foreign particle deposits increase and the engine smoothness will also reduce at a gradual rate. You will not even notice it - Till you use Sys-G again.

I dont think it is harmful to use it intermittently. I feel using it intermittently actually optimizes the usage while retaining benefits of it's usage.

1 ml per litre of petrol. I've been using Sys G since last 1 year on my BSIII ikon. 31K kms driven till date. I've seen some excellent mileage. 13 - 13.5 in city and 17 - 18 in highways. Ofcourse, I'm lightfooted. Rarely exceed 100 kph on highways and never cross 3000 rpm.
Sys G is cool.

Can someone shed some insight on pumps which have System G/D (IFTEX) in northern part of Kerala?. I mean, in Thrissur, Calicut, Kannur, Wayanad districts.
