Fuel Aditives - are they really worth it?

Hi,
Just to provoke some controversy, I know a number of you religiously
use fuel additives, however is it really worth it?
How much do you end up spending on your Millers or whatever per
tank/per year?
What do you perceive to be the benefits?
Do you expect to actually benefit from the claimed improved pump life
during your ownership of the vehicle?
Personally I don't bother. I have tried a number of additives for a
tank or two and haven't really noticed any real difference. I do find
the car runs better on the BP Ultra fuel, but not significantly enough
to make it worth using it all the time.
I suppose it is slightly less of an issue for me now that I mainly run
biodiesel, but it would be interesting to hear your views.

Hi Julian
I don't bother with the stuff. I'll take the risk.
But I'm also going to run the risk with BeB's & a few other things - although with the former I'll reduce with an oil analysis
I call it "self-insurance"

Hey Niall
How much for the Amsoil and what grade are you thinking about.
I know of a few places that do the oil analysis in the UK but not here yet,
just thought you did.

Hey Niall
Are you in a position to wipe out the vat.
Because at some stage I have to go to the Uk to get an exhaust and while im
there, well maybe I could pick up and save both of us the Vat and the
shipping.

Re VAT
Unfortunately not - get a buddy to sort it for me as a favour....
BTW the prices i gave you are only valid for 2 weeks - after which they go up by 18%
