If you think back a few years, Shell brought out a new additive the only problem was it eat Vauxhall engines for breakfast, this is something similar, the only thing is Ford recommend BP fuel!!!!!!

went back to the garage today to find out why....they had to call the ford people out because the nozzle on the pump got stuck in the filler pipe of the car and they couldn,t get it out so they put a notice on the pumps not to be used by fords...sorry to have got the wrong end of the stick.....tony
