System G and high octane fuel have different purpose and they are not alternative for each other. System G is a detergent that cleans burnt fuel residues. High octane fuel provides better combustion, but only for higher compression engines.

Iftex System-G / System-D not available any more ?

Tried to get System-D at the regular BP bunks, but they are saying the product has been stopped.

Ideas / updates, any one ?

Its still available but since the sales are slow the bunks are not interested to stock.

btw, I have an extra sealed bottle, if you want to pick it up from me or check any T.A.S.S

I also use System G for Corsa. It costs around Rs. 1.25/litre (10 litres of petrol=10 ml of System G priced at Rs. 250/200 ml). Funny thing is that GM's note on Corsa says 20 lites of petrol=10 ml of Sys G, but dealers say 10 l of petrol=10 ml. In 2004, for some time, I did not use Sys G and my FE went down to 6-7!!!.

Knowing that it may soon go out of stock, I had bought 3-4 bottles and am still left with 2 bottles, which should last me a year (my wife uses the Corsa and drives only 2K per annum). If it is not available, I may have no other option but to switch to IOC Premium.

I bought from the IOC pump in St Marks road, adjacent to Metro Ford. Not using it regularly though, once every 1000 kms or so.

Jaggu, does the DDiS need it ?

Tata says no additives / premium fuel for Common Rails. If I extend the same logic, your Swift may not need it. I'm trying it again since mine's a TCIC.

GM's recommendations (printed in the car itself thru a sticker) resulted in lower FE!! and was contradicted by GM's service advisors. In such a scenario, is there any authority at all.

I have no idea, i tried it after the reviews that others posted. I didnt feel much difference, apart from some smoothness with the revs. On the other hand i "Felt" the turbo pull was less.

Now i have 2 bottles with me, you want the unopened one free of cost? PM me

@Vasudeva, Yes - you. You need to try what ratio of additive works best. You could try with different ratio's & see which is best. The additive will get burnt anyway, so a little extra during a specific tank-full should not hurt the engine (assuming you try more than what Iftex mentions).

@Jaggu, thanks - can pick it up next time we meet.

I use 10 ml (1 cap)=9-10 litres of petrol. That works. I have found using 5 ml or lower is not cost effective.
