'economical, efficient and non-corrosive, without the use of harmful chemicals'

 Vehicles with a direct injection engine that run on gasoline produce carbon deposits as a by-product of the combustion process which can lead to sluggish engine performance.  Further aggravated by stop and go city driving that over time will cause a build up of black soot that hardens around the intake valves resulting in  restrictions within the engine. As a result your vehicle will experience a loss in power, overheating and higher fuel consumption. Aside from the Electronic Power Control and Engine Warning lights, other symptoms include rough idling, poor acceleration, engine misfire and knocking sounds.

The best way to stop carbon deposits from becoming an issue is to keep your vehicle maintained well. Regular servicing using good quality oil and filters is essential along with ensuring your vehicle is subject to a long run regularly. Contact us for more information.

Carbon deposits affect your engine's performance


A by-product of combustion, carbon is the black soot that gathers and hardens on the cylinder head, cylinder wall, pistons and valves. This may result in a higher consumption of oil, a knocking sound from the engine or engine overheating. Almost all types of gasolines produce carbon deposits on engine components.
