    You won't notice anything until about your 3rd tank full then sit back and enjoy.

    I've been using 250ml to every tank full in my 2006 TD4 for well over a year now. You will find the engine runs smother, quieter, and a lot more torque. You won't notice much difference until about your 3rd tank full also no black smoke. Then sit back and enjoy.

    Make sure it's the cheapest mineral 2 stroke oil. I get mine from Halfords £5.99 for 1 liter this last's for 4 tank full's.

    :)

    You use 250ml per tank and get 4 tanks per litre of 2 stroke (which of course you would). Just made me smile that's all.
