Or maybe into the filling station tanks?

As I said, I'm cynical and tend to think of it as "ingredient X" that magically improves the product over brands without while increasing the price.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
