NB engine exchange!

Great help & service from Terry, Neil & staff. We’d broken down on the Severn - our NB engine seized, Terry arranged a tow to safety, we sourced a replacement engine and it was fitted by Brett - all in an amazing timescale! and really nice people too!

One Shot Road Diesel Pro

I cannot praise Road Diesel Pro enough.
I purchased a new Mitsubishi Shogun SWB 3.2 DID in 2006.
Around 90,000 miles the vehicle had dramatically lost power and using excessive fuel.
I took it in to the garage to find the problem. They discovered that the inlet manifold was virtually blocked with carbon deposit apparently caused by the exhaust gas recirculation system (scavenges unburnt fuel and sends it back into the engine).
They cleaned the inlet manifold and refitted it.
It was at this point that I was advised to use Road diesel Pro by adding the appropriate amount at every fuel top up, which I have done every time since.
The vehicle has now done 170,000 miles and runs perfectly. I had the inlet manifold removed for inspection (and curiosity) at 160,000 and it was completely clean. I also regularly achieve 35mpg and even 30mpg when towing a boat/trailer. The product does the job !!

Our barge launch

Dear Gill and Neil,
Thank you for all your help in launching our Dutch barge, VIOS, at Stourport last weekend. Despite all the difficulties with the transport your help, support and adaptability were much appreciated, especially when we had to run in to a second day. All your staff, colleagues and customers turned what could have been a traumatic experience in to a successful one and we are glad that VIOS is safely in her new home. We look forward to seeing you out on the river in the future. Oh, and thanks for all the coffee!
Stuart and Jenny

After being launched at the yacht club, and the discovery that I was taking on water, my boat XL arrived at your yard where you immediately slung it to prevent a disaster beforer lifting it the following morning. Also, many thanks to all of the people, including your staff, who rallied around to help with the repairs to the Z drive on my Project 31

OneShot Fuel Additives

I have a Cruiser on the Norfolk Broads powered by a Perkins 4108 Diesel. With all the current concerns over Bio-Diesel and the effects it's having on older engines, plus the storage of fuel over winter months, I decided to use fuel additives for the first time to help prevent "Diesel Bug". I added two OneShot treatments to my fuel, OneShot Diesel Storage Pro and OneShot Diesel ECO Plus. I'm delighted with the results. The engine started second turn of the key after 4 months laying idle. Previously it wold have taken 4 or 5 long attempts. I shall continue to use these products and recommend them to other boat owners. The advice and service I received from Sirius Marine was first class - Thank you

About our OneShot Fuel Additive - Road Diesel Pro

Having suffered engine cut out problems for months, along with changing various parts, I decided to take a careful look at fuel filtering and quality. I used OneShot Road Diesel Pro, but in a rather stronger mix than recommended, i.e 200ml in 200ltrs of fuel. After a complete recovery from the problems, I decided to reduce the dosing levels to those recommended.
I can only feel that this was the result of OneShot reducing the particle size, preventing large particles creating an open pressure control valve and therefore it cutting out by the sensors and then computer. I now intend to use OneShot Road Diesel Pro in every tank fill as it has worked out to be very cost effective and there has been no return of the cutting out problems associated with my common rail engine. Thanks for sorting this problem!
