Another thumbs-up for Millers. I use it all the time in the 330d. But it's pointless trying to coerce Wor Lass to use it in the 'Lingo.
Her reaction would be "it goes perfectly well on the diesel I put in, so why faff about?"!
Not the owner, just the bloke who looks after it.
the owner does is drive it and put fuel in.
my isuzu trooper loves vpower diesel fuel. goes like a nutter. if i use ordinary fuel i add millers.
as for the berlingo, i haven't put vpower in yet. but I have put in shell fuel and millers additive and the difference in car is noticeable.
more responsive and quieter on tickover. not had the car long, but I think the previous owner used supermarket fuel and that made the car more lethargic.
Im going to add something here. In my last house my neighbour was a sort of chemist for millers. she gave me a sample of the stuff seeing i drove for a living and had an isuzu. and, of course, wanted to promote her company product. i was converted !
and! where I work now i work with someone who races old cars and who's son is an up and coming motor bike racer who works for a company that re builds engines and knows everything thats present, and the big thing is, supermarket fuel! its cheap for one reason. Its crap!
why would you spend X amount of money on a car and then put cheap fuel it??
as for older cars, the cheap fuel kills them.
millers kinda of helps bridge that problem and for the guys like me running cars that or 25 years plus, millers help no end!
You pay for what you get.
where i live now my neighbour bought a beautiful bmw and was never satisfied with how it ran. (diesel) it never started without a struggle.I asked where he fueled up and was given the usual reply, "morrisons." to which i replied, " you have spent all that money on an expensive car and you put cheap fuel in it!?"
2 tanks of bp fuel later and the car and his driving experience was converted!
and his mpg changed as well. it went up. by a massive 10mpg!! and starts no problems. he is converted.
I dont work for millers or bp. or even shell.
I drive for a living and fuel consumption is a major factor in my pay packet. however, if the fuel i put in my truck isnt doing its job, im not doing mine! and I dont get my bonus!
bit of a rant, but i feel that the average motorist is being sold a lemon in cheap supermarket fuel.
