ccc £2/liter adjust £10/liter

Yes that's about right on the prices, which is one of the things I am questioning - why recommended adjust.

Is any sort of CCC (even adjust) going to do any good now?

I don't suppose this rec will cost me any more than a higher rate of cerone on its own or terpal on its own.
