I stopped using it when Actevo became as rare as rocking horse sh*t, started using Millers Diesel Power Ecomax - works for me

Spot on

Spot on will it have the same effect as 2 stroke ie. cutting down the noise...

Seems too, definitely reduced smoke and smoother starting - been using it for about 18 months now after recommendation from Opie oils

Works out cheaper than 2SO - pop in 75ml per full tank and less messy

Personally, no I wouldn't use it, but I'm not the oracle on such things - I've only ever used mineral prior to the Millers stuff

Hotly debated subject on here - some view as snake oil, some (myself included) believe in the benefits of HPFP and injection components lubrication, smoother starting and less smoke.

I've been using the Millers for about 18 months and 2SO for about 2 years before that.

I'd give it a go and see what you think.

Mine is also a MY10 D4, no DPF.

Jimmy - D3's did not have DPF's - introduced as an option and later standard on D4's

Ok so I guess its a try and see situation, to be fair i normally buy Shell V-Power Diesel, and run RedEx Diesel through it once a month, but at this point my LR3 has been relaxing since its Tour De Turkey run in the summer, Its a Sit on the Driveway 5 days a week and Gets a run on the weekends,

But for a bit of interesting background info, I used to have a Mk4 Golf GT-TDi 1.9, I got very inventive with making my own fuels to run it, 50% Diesel and 50% Cooking Oil, Depending on where i was working from, I'd get it for free used and filtered, Or New Fresh and un-used for £10 for a 25LTR from a cheff guy i knew, the car never had issues, starting it 1st time took 2 cranks, but when it was hot it was straight on,
it was funny in traffic jams in London in the Summer as depending what the old oil was used for would determine what the exhaust smelt like, fish n chips to ginger sponge cakes, you would see people looking about wondering where the fish n chips smell was coming from in the middle lane of the M1 when at a a standstill,


Hey UtilityGuy, I think you might not realise that the LR3 is a NA market vehicle (petrol V6 and V8s exclusively I gather) and since the engines only use petrol (or gas to quote our American friends) it might be unwise to use two stroke oil as an additive in those engines.

Having said that my father had an associate that used to put a cup of his own sump oil in his petrol engined cars here in Australia and swore by the benefits.

I never tried it but have tried the so-called '2SO' (mineral type only) and can happily report that I could not detect one iota of difference in either fuel consumption, smoke output or engine noise... Your mileage may vary (as the Yanks are prone to say!)

2 stroke

Sorry for sounding like a complete idiot, but new to the Landrover scene am I reading this correctly your putting 2 stroke engine oil in the diesel tank when filling up as I've never heard of this before. Bow down
