Anyone who regularly takes vitamins will agree, they may not be essential but they do give you that little extra health or performance.
Additives are vitamins for the combustion engine. Essential? No, if you drive every day and carry out full maintenance on a very regular basis, your engine can do without for a while. However, if you dream of a long and carefree future for your engine, you should consider using them once in a while.
There are a number of types of additives, each with a specific function.
- Fuel additives for winterizing
- Combustion chamber and carburettor cleaner
- Lead substitute, especially important in older engines.
