Had my Dec 62 plate Exclusive AWD Auto just over one month now which has just under 3000 miles on clock (2,600 when I got it so you can see I'm a mostly bit & bob type motorist)and not yet experienced any dpf regen or even any symptoms of it so far. Been looking at various fuel additives like Wynns, Forte, Millers which all claim to clean dpf and reduce regens. Just been on Power Enhancer Uk site which recommends Archoil AR6200 fuel treatment complex as being far superior to anything else. Has anybody tried any of these additives and more importantly - do they really work? Or is it better to stick to Super Diesel (i.e. Shell - current mpg is 21-24)?

I use millers, but always have done with Diesels over the last 12 years. My Antara is a '58 and been using it since I got her with 29,000 on the clock. Average fuel consumption for the 6,000 miles I have completed is 38.4 with mixed road types over the 80+ miles I travel each day.

Cannot honestly say I have noticed it doing a regen, have experienced none of the symptoms described on these and other forums and am very happy with the overall experience of the Antara.


If it is the Miller's, then great, if its not - I will still continue to use it as it has never been the cause of any issues with my previous diesels


I would recommend using it, at very least it keeps the injectors clean.

Using Wynn's DPF cleaner at every third tank full of fuel. Using Redex Diesel additive in between.
Will be updating MPG figures upon my return from Saudi.

Thx for your input. Some seem to advocate a fuel-treatment additive in between DPF cleaner or do you consider Millers caters for both?

Millers all the way, but wouldn't bother with a dpf cleaner, just drive it like a diesel wants to be driven and it'll do its thing and you'll have no problems.

Thx BigJason - just ordered trial sample of Archoil AR6200 BUT going to give Millers a try anyway.

Millers smells like super Diesel due to it having the same ingredient which someone on here said what it was but I can't remember what

What amount of the Millers do you put in the tank and how often?
The whole bottle then at least 40 liters of fuel. I use it every 3rd tank

Whole bottle? It's £13/bottle in halfrauds or around £10 from fleebay so whole bottle sounds expensive. But each to their own!
I usually put in what it says on the back which I think is 25ml/50ltrs fuel.
Although once I did change fuel filter on my last car and forgot to buy any diesel in a Gerry can so I filled the filter housing with millers instead of diesel and never had any problems.

I have been using Millers Diesel Additive on and off for about 10 years. It doesn't appear to make alot of difference to the MPG figures on various vehiclesI have owned over the years
Advanced super diesel fuel doesn't make any difference either. To me they just seem to run smoother and witha bit more power.I have been using Millers engine oils since the mid 1970's



AsI posted eleswhere on here the chemical in Millers is known as 2EHN (2 Ethyl Hexyl Nitrate) but it is diluted with kerosene and other sovents.



The real full strength concentrate can be bought on ebay or from the link below under the name of Biotane

Sorry my mistake it's not millers I use but Wynns


I get it off of fleebay for £20.95 for 3 bottles. I think it's about £10.00 a bottle in Halfords

Have a look at
