    Default Aderco 2055G fuel conditioner anyone used it?

    Hi folks,
    My mechanic is trying to get me to buy 1 liter of this stuff which is enough to treat 55,000 liters of fuel which is a lot and would be shared among boats.
    The details are here http://www.aderco.com/news/spotlight...nditioner.html

    with the promo vid here,

    While they are targeting bigger craft he assures me it would do wonders for my trusty perkins 4236 also.
    Anybody heard of it / used it? it seems to do a lot to the fuel for a few small drops!
    Thanks

    1 litre in 55 tonnes of fuel? Isn't that around 55,000 litres? Surely that is called homeopathy?

    That is a very low dose rate.
    What is the cost for 1 litre of the product?

    I would need about 5ml in each tank which would cost about 50p so it would actually be pretty cheap ..... considerably cheaper than conventional fuel biocide treatment.

    I can't see how it could do anything other than act as a biocide/injector cleaner but if it does that effectively then it's good value.

    You’ve done well to be able to buy it. I can’t find anyone to buy it from!! Unfortunately Dingle is a bit too far for me or I’d offer to share the cost with you...

    That seems very economical except adding such a small volume might be a practical issue .
    Try it and report back in , say, a year

    I found an alternative fuel treatment to the usual products found at chandlery supplies and reported it on YBW but did not get much of a response. I have been using the treatment as a preventative measure this year .
