    is this for real?

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...Id_165750#dtab

    Saw this whilst in halfords the other day, brought a smile to my face
    question is, would this actually have any effect on peformance?

    we got a standard scrapper 1.2 mk1 clio to run a 17.1 second 1/4 mile on 2 bottles of that stuff which was down from consistant 19s before it was used . Fair play it was 2 bottles into 5L of petrol when one bottle should go into 50L and it developed a cracking bottom end knock afterwards but it worked a treat for those priceless 35 miles of sheer power that the 5L got us.
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    isnt this the stuff you add to the fuel for cars which take high octane fuel?
    basicly it a fancy named octane booster?
