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

Great professional service
Customer Service
Adrian attended this morning and completed a diagnostic check and engine carbon clean on both my cars. First of all, it was very easy to book an appointment with great communication. He contacted me the day before to check it was still convenient and a estimate time of arrival. Then a text in the morning of the day with a arrival time. Once here, Adrian went through the process and shown me everything and explained what he was doing and how it worked. There was some error codes I didn't know about and he offered advice on how to sort them. A very professional service with a competent technician who is clearly passionate about his work. I couldn't be happier with the results and the service received. I would highly recommend. Thank you Adrian.

Amazing product, even better service
Customer Service
Booked Adrian in to run diagnostics and a carbon clean on both of my vehicles after being impressed by other reviews. Despite being initially skeptical of the effectiveness they clean would have I wanted the diagnostic side as well as I had just purchased a 13 year old BMW 1 series which had an intermittent smoking issue. Our other vehicle was a diesel Picasso used on short journeys. Adrian was prompt, personable and extremely knowledgeable and thorough in his diagnostics. Long story short here I am a week later the BMW accelerates and runs almost like a new car rather than an old one and the clean on the Picasso has totally eliminated a whirring sound on idle. Finally best of all I have had no smoke at all since the clean. It’s far exceeded my expectations. I’m not going to claim I’m getting 10 mpg extra from a 13 year old petrol car as I’m not but it’s an absolute joy to drive now and so quiet. Will definitely recommend Adrian to friends and will use him again on my next used purchase

I booked my car in with Adrian for a preventative maintenance clean as the car had no running issues. Adrian was very knowledgeable and engaging, clearly knowing knowing his stuff. The car now has noticing more lower down torque and is quieter. Well worth having done. (2013 330D F31 94,500 miles)

Professional, punctual and polite service.
Customer Service
Adrian arrived earlier than expected and was very thorough with the explanations as to how the carbon clean worked. He was happy to field questions and explained his answers clearly. The work carried out was done in a professional manner and the results are very impressive, with a car that is much smoother to drive, much smoother through the gears and that runs much quieter. I would highly recommend Adrian and will be using his again when the time comes.

2012 Mondeo clean.
Customer Service
I booked Adrian after reading the excellent reviews. He came exactly at the time he said he would. I found him very knowledgeable and he talked me through the whole procedure. At the time my car was suffering from an undiagnosed vibration which he said probably wouldn't be cured by a clean. He was very upfront about this but I had the full clean anyway. After the vibration was sorted by the purchase of a new clutch it is only now I can feel the benifit, the car drives lovely and smooth and the fuel consumption has improved to, having started using V power diesel. This combination of the clean and top grade fuel is definitely worth paying for. Thanks Adrian.

Thanks for the review Richard - that flywheel definitely needed changing. Great to hear you are getting nearly 100 miles more per tank after the clean and a change of fuel - glad to help you with your Mondeo.
