Carbon is a natural by-product of burning fossil fuels in a combustion engine. Carbon buildup gathers over time and causes an engine to labour, vibrate and over fuel. This leads to excessive:

- rumble and shake
- fuel usage (declining MPG)
- smoke and emissions
- wear and tear on other components (engine mounts, etc.)
- DPF regeneration in Diesel vehicles.
- sluggishness, lag and sticking turbo

What a very knowledgeable man about his business and how professional he was from the first text I sent enquiring about a Carbon clean on a BMW I had just purchased (which I knew little about) on the day of appointment he was early and straight away I could tell he was very professional in his manner. I'm more confident in my car's ability to be reliable because of Adrian and his service...my car is running perfect for an 11 year old car he explained every detail of the process From diagnostic and fault codes explanation and Carbon treatment...he made me clear on a couple on underlying problems that I didn't know about because of no light's on the dash to make me aware so I've had them looked at by a professional garage for my own piece of mind and the great advice from Adrian ....his service is 5 stars for a reason and you won't get a better service I can assure you because I will be using this service again just because I know what I'm getting..The information and knowledge and professionalism for your car's health is worth the £99 alone ..top man

Had Adrian recommended to me by my local garage after an intermittent fault kept putting my 520d into restricted mode. He arrived ahead of schedule and after a quick chat got straight to work. Unlike many garages where your car disappears out of sight and a few hours later your given it back with a very large bill not knowing what they've done Adrian was more than happy to talk me through everything he was doing and answered any questions I put to him. The result after the clean is much better throttle response and the engine sounds much smoother and quieter. Time will tell whether the mpg figures are restored to nearer manufacturers claims but Adrian was right about everything else so pretty confident. Highly recommend this company and will be using again when needed.

I had two cars treated with the Carbon Clean method. The first was a twenty year old BMW Mini with 127K on the clock that had never had the engine treated to a clean of any description. Straight away the pick up when accelerating was crisper. The MPG had gone from 36 down to 30 MPG, yet somehow after the treatment, it has gone up to 40MPG. My second car, a diesel B Class Mercedes, had an expensive manual engine clean last year courtesy of the EGR, yet that too runs smoother after the treatment. Adrian was very easy to talk with, open, honest and informative. He clearly explained what would be done, what couldn't and why. During the procedure, he did a diagnostic check and sent me all the information.

TVR Griffith

My TVR Griffith after being stored for the last 3 years failed it’s MOT on emissions. The garage had carried out numerous works trying rectify the issues with no success. I came across Adrian’s website and thought I’d give him a call. He visited the garage where the car was and carried out his carbon cleaning process. Even during the cleaning process the engine note had changed from slightly congested to smooth. The following day the garage performed another emission test and found that CO content had dropped from a MOT failing 3.8 to a pass of 2.3 ! Significant to say the least! A Knowledgeable guy carrying out a fantastic service, highly recommended.

Booked a clean with Adrian on my 2012 x5. I have used Adrian before but I didn't have any issues with the car but just fancied a maintenance clean. Wow...the car is now smoother and more responsive. Again the service and approach is top notch. A great service from Adrian and I would highly recommend. Book a clean today you won't regret it.

live diagnostic & engine carbon clean

Adrian performed a live diagnostic and an engine carbon clean on my 2013 Mercedes A Class I have had a warning light for some time and the Garages have always blamed the EGR and after lots of work they could not work out what was wrong. After following his videos closely for a few months i reached out to Adrian to book him in to look at the car and see if he could figure out the problem. Arrived on time and got straight to work diagnosing the fault's the car had. Adrian took the time to explain the faults what the likely cause might be. This was the main reason why I wanted Adrian to do the job, his knowledge and attention to the detail is amazing! With the live data and Adrian's knowledge it looks like the issue might be electrical instead of mechanical and with this i can now get the car booked into the garage to fix. The carbon clean has made the car noticeably smoother now when driving. Adrian checked in with me later in the day to ask how the cars was driving which was a great touch and great service. Would defiantly recommend Adrian and will be using him in the future.

Had engine carbon clean out to me today to do my 2012 Audi A5 2.0 tfsi and my partner's 2011 Kia Sportage crdi. Very glad I booked Adrian in having followed his videos closely for a couple of months. Great service. Arrived on time. Instantly got to work diagnosing the fault's I had and explaining where each one was coming from or what the likely cause was. This was a massive part of the service and why I wanted Adrian to do the job, as he explained everything in detail. The carbon clean itself was great. It was more of a maintenance/prevention thing for me but I must say, the car is noticeably smoother now when driving around. Payment was simple with a card machine upon completion of works. Adrian checked in with me later in the day to ask how both cars seemed which I thought was a nice touch to include some after service.

This was the second time Adrian has been out to do a carbon clean for us. Booking process was easy, Adrian is responsive to messages and very informative. Primarily had the most recent carbon clean for preventative/maintenance but have been really impressed with the improvements we have seen in how smooth/quiet the car runs now. Will be sure to ask Adrian to come round to do a clean on our other car as it approaches is warranty expiry.
