Was using this in my 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser and sewer by it.
(But sadly sold to buy a wife a new car lol)
I did try it in the WIFE's car first lol a 2009 Toyota Aurion and worked well.
Have been using this in all my Petrol cars as well and has made a REAL big difference in my 1975 HJ Holden Prem with a 1989 TPI chev, Its stopped pining its bloody head of lol and yes it runs on 98pump. seems to have cleaned ALL the fuel system out and the rev's have dropped at idle and on the open road. All carbon has been cleaned
And the crisp pic up is all there like when i installed the Tuned Port Injected Chev back in the year 2000 thats right 18 years ago.

Give it a go, work's for me and im in Cairns Nth Qld where we have a moisture problem lol
I buy it from Super Cheep Auto, a Liter of this is around $32

Hmm looks like another product from these scammers https://www.youtube.... and https://www.youtube.... same logo. If it is indeed the same company, I'll be staying away from it.

Looks like it might be a different company but gee the logo and print design etc is very similar. Nonetheless, I remain skeptical and will stay with proven products.

Scam or no scam, I don't know !, but I do know this, for the last probably 20 years around Christmas, Autobarn, Repco, possibly Super Thief, and possibly others, sell Fuel additive at $2 for a 300ml bottle which does a full tank of fuel in the average car.
Now this fuel additive can be Whynns or other brands, and every year I have bought a few bottles and placed them in the cupboard for future use, and yes, they do make the car run better, but at $2 for 300ml, we are talking $6.67 per litre NOT $32 per litre, so I will keep buying the $2 a bottle (300ml) from Autobarn, and keep Craig Lowndes in clover Ha Ha

Yes; I buy the twin packs of Valvoline Fuel Injector Cleaner when they are on special and put a pack in my fuel injected cars every service. I still use old style Red-X on my older cars but cat converters are too easily plugged and O2 sensors damaged on new cars if old style upper cylinder head lubricant is used.

THis https://www.ebay.com... suggest that the additive is a Castrol product. If it is it should be OK but why is some sold without the Castrol label?

OK this explains ithttp://fueldoctors.c...

"
A joint branding distribution agreement with Castrol in 2000 included a stringent and successful product testing regime instigated by Castrol’s new owners BP.

2002 saw SuperCheap Auto roll out the new 275 ml automotive bottle, allowing all motorists access to an industrial strength product developed by a committed industry leader, in a proprietary designed enviro-user friendly multi-use dispenser."

I am starting to think the scam gizzmo was trying to ride on the coattails of the additive product by using the same name and colours and similar print and logo etc.

YES ive used the "Cheaper products" Wynes,twin packs of Valvoline, STP, and the Octane boost Nulion,
Ive seen this work in our work trucks HR Mercs and Hinos, Toyota hiluxs and cruiser and compresuress petrol and diesel.
So ive seen it work, and it worked for me in my cars,
And my boss gave me a bottle, so it cost me nothing to try,
As they say "you dont build cars with parts you buy from overflow or the crazy clarks"
Thats all im saying

You don't fix cars with a miracle potion in a bottle either. There are flow tests out there that prove tank additive injector cleaners do nothing. Running an engine at more than a snails pace for a decent period of time will sufficiently burn the carbon out of a combustion chamber, the harder it's driven the less time it takes. Most if not all of these products ingredients are mixes of basic petroleum products that equate to a few cents worth in every bottle. The speil on the label costs them more to make.

TD, thanks for the heads up on the product, and it is probably good, I have no idea.
My VZ only does 6000 k a year so I would use a 300ml bottle once or twice a year, and the product you are telling us about is probably good, I don't know cause I would never buy or use so much.

When I put the Dellortos on the EH I got some bits from a Dellorto specialist in Melbourne.
He recommended always using a fuel additive/stabiliser in an older car, especially one with carburettors. Lucas Fuel Stabiliser was his recommended additive.
His reasoning was that all our petrol now comes from Singapore, and Singapore fuel is and always has been poorer quality that what was refined in Australia.
It is a known fact that petrol deteriorates over time. Our fuel is usually at least 3 months old by the time it is refined, shipped to Australia and delivered to the bowser. Then we put it in our old cars that aren't driven often and can take a month or two use a tank full.
All this means we aren't getting an optimum fuel into our motors, hence the need to prop up the deficency of our fuel.
It makes sense, so maybe there is a benefit in this product and others like it.
BP promote their Ultimate 98 as having additives that do exactly what these products do, and I know our EH is happier with BP 98 in the tank.

Old is good.

Nearly all of Western Australia's fuel still comes from our Kwinana Oil refinery.

Dont know why we have get our fuel from Singapore anyway, apparently Bass straight is loaded with capped wells a bloke who worked on the rigs told me this in the late 70's if memory serves me well.

We need to refine again big time. PS and so much for the oil shortage i remember the sky was going to fall in with all this BS talk about were going to run out , yeah right 40 years later and i dont how many more cars are on the road now world wide ..must be sh@!t loads of fossils down there lol.

We get our fuel from Singapore because Woolies and Coles control the fuel market with something like 65% of fuel sales.
They bring it in from Singapore because it is cheaper than Australian refined fuel. It is cheaper because it is lower quality, but they don't care about that.
As their sales increased our local refineries saw their production drop and it became not viable to refine fuel here on the lower volumes. So they closed.
Just another example of the weak b*stards in Canberra telling us that the great god competition will save us money and create jobs.
Coles and Woolies both stated in their staff magazines that they intended to increase their profit margin on fuel to the same as that on groceries. Makes a bloke wonder how much cheaper our fuel would be and how how many jobs wouldn't have been lost if they didn't sell fuel.
Chemists (prescriptions)and newsagents (lottery sales)are next.
