Question Fuel cleaner advice (2006 320d)

What's the score with fuel additives that supposedly help with maintainance/economy and performance? Anyone used such a product in a 163bhp 320d? or is it a big no no ?

always used millers in the vag diesels I've had. Used it in a golf tdi which had 250k miles when I sold it on and still had the original turbo pulling like a train

I now add redline s1 in the petrol, a version of which has a bmw part number.

Some think it's snake oil, others like a bit of preventative maintenance.

Garage List
I once used one of these in a 2.0 VAG TDI and it messed up the DPF. Avoid.
