Sadly this does'nt get me out of this expensive Euro 3 upgrade this summer for all pre 2001 London taxis, as the PCO claim they will have no way of monitoring your usage of the Powerpill, but regardless, I'll keep using them.


If they are that good GBC, why not pop one in before the test and feck going to the expense of the upgrade.

This thread is over 2 years old Skippy, I was updating it with new info.

You had to fit the emissions equipment, if you did'nt the cab would'nt be plated.

Well I can vouch for the above EBay supplier, they arrived safe and sound this morning. I hope the forthcoming TX2 likes them?

I have now done 1500 miles using these pills and I am amazed by the results. Before I used then in my Citroen Picasso I got an average of 45.6 miles to the gallon and now after using these pills for 1500 miles my fuel consumption is 45.6 miles per gallon. :?

You admit to owning a Citroen Picasso? Then you deserve the results. :wink:

It does'nt impact on every vehicle's MPG, but think about your lower emmissions, cleaner fuel, less carbon build up, cleaner injectors less fuel filter changes . . . .

Unfortunatly I can't see any of the other benefits that you mention whilst driving. I will of course continue to use the full pack of tablets and continue to monitor the MPG.

Well that may appear top be the case now at a pound a pill, but the long term savings may well outsrtip that by many thousands.

Plus you can sleep better knowing you've lowered your carbon footprint.

Where's my fair trade coffee? . . . . . :D
