Redex: The test. The starting point.

I’ve been asked to review Redex, which we highlighted in a previous article.  We are testing the following products on my beloved Lancia Flavia Coupe 2000.  So we started with Petrol Redex Advance Fuel System Clean Up.  This claims to fight the five effects of engine deposits in one pour and go solution.  To be used every 3000 miles.

The starting point for the Lancia was to establish what the current MPG was prior to any of Redex’s products were used.  This is not an exact science, we drove 315.1 miles, on 75 litres of fuel, giving us 19.1 mpg.  According to a road test in 1970 by Motorsport magazine on the Lancia Flavia Coupe 2000 they took the MPG as 24 mpg.  So we’ll just have to see where we end up.

So first off we poured in the Petrol Redex Advance Fuel System Clean Up and topped up with petrol, thereafter we will be using a bottle of Redex Petrol One Shot.  Let’s see how we get on.  Initial thoughts are positive.  The car seams to sound better and drive better, but it’s early days, and I’m not sure how much is actual reality, and how much is me being aware of the product use, so psychologically I think it’s better.  You can follow our progress either here by subscribing to our newsletter, or follow us on twitter or facebook.

Let the test begin…
