Often we get asked, what actually is a fuel additive and does it really help my car?

A bottle of fuel additive can cost as little as £5.00 and can be added directly into your car fuel tank. But why would you do this?

Looking at the marketing there are lots of different products, we aim to dispel some of the myths that surround fuel additives and help explain why the use of a fuel additive can have both economic and environmental benefits for both domestic and commercial vehicle owners. Read on to find out.

Many professional vehicle mechanics call fuel additives as “mechanic in a can” since a fuel additive can offer a simple solution to loads of common fuel delivery problems. Meaning. after adding a fuel additive to your fuel tank your car should run more smoothly, show improved fuel economy, lower emissions and help you prolong the life of the engine.

Over time vehicles gather unnecessary sludge and soot in different areas of the engine, which will manifest in performance issues and poor fuel economy. A fuel additive works by removing the sludge and soot and improving combustion. Fuel additives enhance the lubrication of the vehicle’s working components which means that there can be less wear and tear on the moving parts.
