My car has 250,000 on the clock and new glow plugs were fitted recently, the orange light goes out after 6 seconds and starts as soon as i touch the key, instantly, no matter how cold it is. I have always made my own fuel additive which is 30% standard mineral 2T oil and 70% of cetane, circa half a litre to an 80 litre tank, this gives me smooth running and about 3 mpg more, it will also help cold starting as the cetane improves the flash point and valeancy of the fuel.
