Aghhhh Yes .. so simple i had not thought of it ..

Ive used Forte many times in a previous life and it is one of the best out there .

Also a quote ..

Forté Advanced Formula Gas Treatment is compatible with High Pressure Direct Injection petrol engine

Now all i need is a gunnie pig at work to test it on lol

Cheers Thumb

Having not used any of these type of products before, is it just a case of adding a bottle to a fresh tank of fuel? How does it 'wash' the inlet valves on a non-DFI engine / DFI engine?
I might have a little YouTube search and see what's what.

Does this kind of stuff work? Wasn't sure if they're nothing more than snake oil? Also, I'd understood that the 99 Ron fuels have additives added to help clean injectors and the like?

Not a question i can answer but i can say ive used Forte in the past ( pre porsche ) and its pretty good stuff.

this for me would be a call to the manufactuor confirming its fine for Porsche .. which to be honest from the write up i cant see why not .

It would need a bore scope of the valves before and after to confirm it does work .

it would also need a car with buildup and someone willing to pay for all this to prove it and thats probably the hardest part .

i dont represent my company and they wont pay for something like this if i ask .. just a mechanic im afraid .

For me though ... its a possible avenue to explore which may help in the future .

Non dfi doesnt really need this .. the fuel wash helps clean the valves .. as for dfi im unsure so testing is the only way forward .

You add the bottle to the fuel tank .. so it will take a while to work .. im guessing 2 bottles would be more effective .

But i cant endorse this product .. i can only say its been pretty good in the past but on non Porsche .

Repeating a previous post isnt helpfull .. ask the questions and ill do my best Smile

Sorry, I didn't repeat the question - my iPad plays silly bu@@ers occasionally and makes me look even more daft than I am! I have noticed a few other repeated posts from others that seem to reappear after many minutes so seems a different issue to the normal duplicate post!!
