Pure kerosene?

What are the other things?

Years ago we were talking aboutAcetone as a fuel additive...I have never tried...

But cleaning question, this Saab has already swallowed a few tens of L of gasoline and around 20 L of E85 (in 4 times), according to this method: consume less Diesel by adding Gasoline

But it's boring to do at the pump (you have to put gasoline before diesel to mix well and better not to drive between the 2 full with a mixture of 50% gasoline approximately ... I put 5L in a tank of 58L and when I fill it up I usually add between 53 and 55 L ..) ... and people look at me weird ...: Cheesy:

Acetone yes, but not too much, otherwise the joints do not like too much.

White spirit, too.

It's not expensive, but on the other hand, in a hdi, I don't know if we can.

Gasoline too, cleans not too badly, in the 80s, we often put 10% gasoline in diesel, in winter, to prevent it from freezing ...

Kerosene or kerosene is a very good injector cleaner even on idhp ... But prohibited on the road ... Above all, do not get caught by customs with that ... It is expensive ...

Ah yes, if you do 700 per year ... 000 oil changes to do per year ... or 24 every 1 working days roughly ... a pity that no serious water injection kit is released on the market ... Because with km like that ... it was interesting just on the oil changes!

Try already with 1 full, for 8 € not even a pack of cigarettes you risk what?

Otherwise it's 20 km ... recommended! So concerning me 000 full in 1 ... since the covid I drive 20km per year ... I have time to see it coming!

I have already done 4 treatments (see the other subject) over 65 km .. am better than 000 km / treatment so + E20 and E000 over more than 85 full! It must be scrubbed my grandma!

Here I refueled my Saab 9.3 Tid last night and here is the real consumption.

It was in line with forecasts, I did 100 km more with a full tank ... I stopped at 1036 km with 56 km of reserve, I did not want to risk the breakdown (you never know with the on-board computers ...)

Real consumption: 5.32 L / 100 ... not bad for a sedan of 16 years and 1600 kg!

By retaining an average efficiency of 30% we would be 160 Wh "physical" necessary for the progress per km, it is not bad at all!

Real autonomy: 1090 km ... but I prefer not to test in real life, not want to deactivate the pump (although it must have a safety on an HDI ...)! : Cheesy: : Cheesy: : Cheesy:

Yesterday evening, after 20 km on the national road, the computer estimated this:

This afternoon, after 70 km on the same road, I:

The on-board computer tends to overestimate the range at the start ... in real life it will be between 1000 and 1100 km I presume ... This would confirm the residual effect of the treatment ... to be confirmed!

Brave Swedes! :D

In short, it would be good if some of you also test ...

The 1.9 .. from the 90s, yes it was that of the fiat croma tdid (low pressure direct injection with mechanical Bosch pump) moreover the whole car was a fiat with some cosmetic modifications…. But your car is much newer than that….

After research ... The 120 hp is a fiat engine (the same block as my alfa 156 8 valve cylinder head) the 150 is a 16 valve which according to the images I found does not look too much like the fiat alfa of the same generation...
