Our Most Common FAQ’s
What causes the build-up of carbon deposits in the engine?
As fuel (either Petrol or Diesel) is burnt in the engine deposits of carbon are left behind.
Are some engines more prone to carbon build up than others ?
All engines have this problem, even the most modern direct injection systems are affected.
Is there anything that I can do to prevent the carbon build up?
No, the variable quality of fuels means that it is almost impossible to eliminate the build up of carbon.
Why can't I use a fuel additive to clean the system?
The regular use of fuel additives can help to reduce the build up of deposits in the fuel system and engine, however the very small amounts added and the length of time they take to work reduces the effectiveness.
My vehicle runs on LPG does it need cleaning?
Most LPG powered vehicles ran on petrol before conversion, and probably have a carbon build up from then and would benefit from the service.
