Hi Guy, can we have one of these on Diesel?

I was trying to find a source of 2-ethyl hexyl nitrate but only found a mixed additive from the local motor factor store, it seemed to improve the performance of a 530d BMW, but it was expensive.

Any views on how much this actually helps BHP in Diesel with and without remap?

Also, any opinions on Diesel remapping, it seems to have a bigimpact on power and torque without touching compsumption too much, but I don't see combustion by product data in the marketing stuff. Is that becuase the OEM's have to squeeze in the emissions rules and remapping kills this aspect?
