United-Kingdom Do you use a Diesel aditive

I have just bought a mini one 14d this is my first diesel I was told it is the Chrysler engine but not sure. I don't know if I should put an additive in, what to use and how often.
Another thing how often should it be serviced it is a 2004 with over 100 thousand on the clock would it have a gambler to change?

Well its good for your Mini that you used petrol in it because its an old model.So there are rare chances to of smoke from its silencer.I am a mechanic by profession and i advise you better for your Mini.Not take the risk to use diesel.I you want to know more about the vehicles and their specs so have a look on BMW VIN Decoder.

Habi, You keep writing the same thing for every post here and its basically waffle.
This person here has already bought the diesel version so they arent going to be putting petrol in it are they.

Hi ya

This is a good fuel system cleaner/additive usage really depends on how many miles you do a year and hose it's driven
Personally every 6000 mile is what I do with the family's cars, they get a bit of town and a bit of motorway

Power Enhancer | BG 248 | Diesel Engine Cleaners | Injector Cleaner

Or

Power Enhancer | BG 244 | Diesel Engine Cleaners | Fuel Injector Cleaner


Hope this helps

BMW now also do their own official additives for both petrol and diesel. The petrol one has been around a while and is supposed to be OK. Diesel one is very new - mine came from Germany - and I've yet to try it.

You can just add one container of around 100ml to a tankful and it takes a couple of them to clean everything up.

83 19 2 296 922 BMW Group Diesel additive

83 19 2 183 738 BMW Group Petrol additive

Current: 2011 X6 40d & 2012 Countryman SD All4
Project: 2005 E46 330Cd M Sport convertible
