Given fuel additive at service

Post by Tankie96 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 4:20 pm

Hi all,
Car been for service and I have been given two bottles of additive to put in the next fill up. This is to help the valve wear issue on the 1.4t petrol.
Anyone else been given these?
Car is a 2016 model, are all years given it?

Valves have no wear on 1.4T nor its possible to get it at such low mileage, they're black nitride coated. Its to clear injectors and deposits that form inside the cylinder which is common on GDI engines, its a part of standard service.

I think that they started giving additives this year about 6 months ago, so it's probably given every year.
I believe that this thing is the same, we just get repacked additive in Opel/VX can.
