    Hi,

    I will shortly be getting a van with Webasto heating fitted.

    The diesel to run it comes straight from the fuel tank. My question, is it still OK to use Diesel additives (injector cleaning. Millers Oil etc.) in my fuel or will this adversely affect the heaters functionality?

    Thanks

    No problems with ours. A bit of Redex cleans the burner quite nicely!:thumb:

    My Autotrail is coming up for 3 years old and during that time I have had one service which included a fuel additive (Fiat recommended) and it has had no impact on my Webasto heater.
    It is very quiet and has never let me down. I run it for a minimum of 1 hour per month when not in use. (recommended to me Webasto technician).

    Also, you may find in the winter the boiler drain valve does not fully close (There has been a problem with quite a few Webasto heaters). This is easily overcome by opening and closing a few times and/or heating the boiler up a little.
