Council report - Pease Pottage businesses (3 of 5)

The photograph is of the Stadium Garage in Pease Pottage which offers RedX for sale. It was common in those days to have a “shot” of the stuff in the tank for every four gallons of fuel as an additive.
In lieu of giving the engine a “de-carb” it was advised by some to squirt a shot or two directly into the carburetor while running the engine at fairly high “revs”. I’m not sure if it did any good, but it was well worth the 1d or 1½d a shot to enjoy the clouds of smoke it generated!

I remember putting Redex in the gas tank of my motorbike..... just for the smoke screen effect.
It was great, but annoyed a lot of people as well.
