Default Diesel Extreme for injectors

I have a 2015 Jetta 2.0 TDI 27,000 miles and was wondering if Diesel Extreme would be good to use, if not what would you recommend.
Thanks
Phil

I’m not sure what you’re asking, but at 27k miles the injectors shouldn’t be on your radar.
Are you looking for power upgrades ?

Not ooking for power upgrades, VW just did my software mod for Dieselgate and the check engine light came on. My diesel mechanic said to use it in EVERY Diesel that I have asultra low sulfur diesel can cause issues.
The reason for the question is with the new extended warranty I do not want of void it.

Ok so you’re talking about xtreme diesel addictive. No need for that ultra low sulfur diesel have plenty of lubricity, plus your car is a 2015. The injection system was designed with that in mind.
Drive more worry less.

Check the fuel pump next time you fill. If it has any bio component (2% or more up to 20%) you should have no issues with lubricity, the main issue with ULSD. VW approves up to 5% everywhere and up to 20% in certain states due to their regs. It has been somewhat proven that 2% bio in the fuel is the best lubricity additive tested and it is already in most fuels. Most stations are already additised sufficiently already and for the most part you need add nothing. I have had no issues running pump fuel with bio less than 20% since 2012. For some reading check out the fuel survey report here:

Cold weather operations is the only thing I would consider using an additive for. If you are having water issues change stations. Otherwise drive on!

So you are going to use something that could void the fuel system part of your warranty through not being an approved VW additive? That doesn't make any sense.

Wow! DE sure is some pricey snake oil...........

Hey, Rattler.....lighten up. I think his main concern was would the use of the additive void his warranty so he was asking the crowd here. I don't know of any adds that void warranty. If the additives did then all of them would be under scrutiny. Power Service, Howes, Optilube and on and on it could go. I do agree DE is just pricey snake oil.

Ya, I guess it's how you say it. If you had an HPFP failure and VW knew you had been using an unapproved by VW additive then yes VW would have a very strong case for voiding your warranty. Do you know of any additives that are approved by VW and why would VW "scrutinize" additives that they don't recommend using?

In the real world most all Diesel additive do no harm and are well under VW's radar for problems relating to proper operation and/or warranty work.

The additive has nothing to do with the MIL.

The tuners have been working overtime to unfix the fix, welcome to the club. Good news is, they know better how to make diesel Volkswagens run properly than Volkswagen does. And you can use some of your apology money to pay for it. Then you can enjoy the car again.

Maybe they do but they aren't held to the same standards as VW is by governments and most don't have the deep pockets VW has to be able to sue for millions/billions.

That they might be and if they had worked for VW in the past few years making VW TDI's run better they might be sitting in a courtroom and facing a prison sentence.

IDK of any tuner that is the CEO of a multinational automotive manufacturing company. DeiselGate never was about dangerous levels of Emissions, it is about deception by VW.

The EPA needed something big to take the focus off them after the Colorado river incident, they knew about VW cheating for a while, bam... instant money and media diversion. VW scandal a month after it happened, coincidence? I think not
