the wonders it works never cease- my car was having nasty vibes at 2700 rpm onwards, and after adding system D, now it revs to 3000+. top speed also has gone up by 20 kmph or so!

What do you mean by saying nasty vibes? Fuel starvation symptoms? And what is your top speed now?

please elaborate.

P.S: check pm.

Is it OK to let Liqui Moly sit in a full tank of fuel overnight?

I will be heading out for a longish ride early next morning so won't be able tank up right before the journey. Or is it better to put it in only when the fuel will be used immediately.

Shouldnt be a problem. I poured 2 cans into my car and have used only half the tank.

I'm feeling minor vibrations at idle/low RPMs intermittently since 2-3 weeks. I don't suspect any issues with the spark plugs, etc. (hopefully) as the car was serviced about 2 months back. Based on the good feedback of Liqui Moly Petrol Injector cleaner on the forum, have ordered a bottle off Amazon. Planning to use it for this weekend's T-BHP Ooty drive.

I used a bottle of Abro fuel injector cleaner in my WagonR (6yr, 50k kms old) and found an improvement in throttle response and in-gear pulling power. However, 2.5k kms later, I feel the responses have dulled a lot. I am contemplating adding another bottle of injector cleaner. How long does the effect of a cleaner remain?

I have read very good reviews of System G and wanted to try it. But I can't seem to find it anywhere online. Can anyone guide me where I can get it online? Or in-store purchase in Hyderabad?
Is Liqui Moly product equally good?

System G / Liqui Moly
Hi,
with my experience of using such Diesel related additives in my Diesel vehicle (Xylo), I may comment :

In my case, I found LiquiMoly didnt show any effect, whereas Addon-D, System-D, Abro DFT/DIC, STP DFT&IC do show some positive effect. In some previous posts have written my comments.

For your Wagon-R, apart from System-G, also try Addon-P (petrol), they would be good.

Do share your results.

regards,
Pranav

After reading all about fuel additives here, i started to add Addon P in petrol for my 2006 Alto 180000 odo.
It works, it really works. Previously, i had not used any fuel additives nor done any engine decab. After running for initial 100 km with Addon P in the petrol, i found engine noise reduced remarkably, engine response changed to quicker side.
I will check the fuel-km average with tankfull method in this week. Addon P comes in 5ml pouch ( Rs 9 only).

You will not find the same dramatic improvement the next time round. The gunk is out! I normally put in the additive every three tankfuls or so.
