After reading this thread I tried this stuff in 2 of my cars and I even used 2-3 times the recommended dosage but it made zero difference in engine noise or anything else. Maybe it makes a difference if you use crappy fuel, but I suppose the B5 fuel that I use is already pretty good.

I thought I'd play, dumped in a small bottle on 3/4 tank of fuel.
Not sure if it's quieter, no unusual smoke, and as of after my 25 mile drive home tonight, my 1500-1800 noisy injector is quiet. Hmph...

A bottle of SVO mixed at the same ratio, ok ok maybe... little more SVO in the ratio, I'm sure will serve you just as well. Sir Rudolph Diesel will smile in his grave if ya do this.

(SVO= Straight Vegetable Oil, Grocers shelf kind

Very odd, I seem to get a foul smelling batch of fuel every few months.
Nice blue color, normal odor filling tank, no power loss, just bad smell.
