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

Engine Carbon Clean
Customer Service
I have a BWM with 72,000 miles. I had read about engine carbon clean and from my first phone call, Adrian gave me a detailed explanation of what would be done. When he arrived at my home he looked the part very smart after the work was complete and he gave me a written report. He was very knowledgeable and professional, my BMW drives better and is quieter. I am very pleased I have had the work done and would not hesitate to use them again. One word - brilliant

Volvo XC90 carbon clean success
Customer Service
I just want to leave this with you in the hope that other people realise the massive benefits of carbon cleaning. I have a XC 90 wonderful car! It developed a very annoying problematic limp mode whenever you try to accelerate hard. Brought up over boost fault codes. I change the boost pressure sensor fault remained. Adrian came after a very carefully explaining what can and cannot be achieved with carbon cleaning. He spent over an hour reading the diagnostics of my car and carbon cleaning the engine and fuel delivery systems. Very very knowledgeable gentlemen! After cleaning the engine sounded completely different, it revved faster and straightaway you could hear a crisp note in the engine. I went for a drive and there was obviously so much carbon that have been removed from the engine the ECU struggled initially to regulate the air to fuel mixture. After a few miles the results were outstanding! I think Adrian found about 50 of my missing ponies!!!! The fault cleared and the car is like it was 100,000 miles ago! I will be doing this every 10,000 miles now. It pays for itself! Cannot recommend this company high enough. Superb excellent polite punctual service!

Limp mode
Customer Service
Car was in limp mode with service light on. Adrian come out did diagnostic check which was the dpf pressure sensor. Got the sensor replaced but car was still in limp mode. Adrian advised the new sensor needs recalibrating. Booked another appointment with Adrian. Took him 10mins to recalibrate the new sensor and car was out of limp mode and driving normal again. So happy with the advice and service.

Customer Service
I phoned Adrian yesterday and arranged a time for a visit he arrived 15 min before arranged time and he came out his way to do my car. Adrian was very useful with knowledge about my vehicle and he explained what he was about to work on the car all this with a diagnostic readout throughout. A proper nice guy who knows his stuff and the results showed as the car was running a lot smoother I’m a very happy customer and would recommend to anyone.

Top Notch Service as Always
Customer Service
This is the second time I have used this service for a car and excellent as before. Having this done to my previous car sorted a warning light issue which I was quoted a lot more to fix and this time after getting a new car wanted to make sure it was running at its best. Brilliant service and the car running better and improved fuel economy too. Great full diagnostics done too I definitely recommend having this done well worth it!!

Great service
Customer Service
I’ve not used Adrian for. Few years due to the obvious and I’ve done easily close to 50,000 since my last clean. After an hour my van is smoother, more responsive and giving an improved MPG going from 24/34 and now returning 38/39. Definitely worth doing as you also get to see the live data from the engine showing that things are running nicely. Also it’s always nice to see Adrian who’s professionalism and customer service is as good as ever. 👍🏻

Adrian was fantastic, very knowledgeable in his trade, and a genuinely polite and professional man to deal with, I would definitely deal with Adrian again and recommend him to anyone that is thinking of using his services. I am very impressed with how my car now runs as it runs so much more smoothly and quietly now after the carbon clean. Again thank you so much.
