    Default Paraffin on carbon ??

    Vectra c 1.9 120 design estate 2007
    Ive been looking into the reasons why the veccy is doing 34 Mpg around town and is juddery below 2000 revs
    Because its an estate I think the exhaust needs a burn out ( cant think of the proper name for it )
    Ive looked through quite a few threads over the last two weeks and found a thread that states you can "power wash" the exhaust to clean the deposits of carbon so its nice and clean.
    It starts first time hot or cold, power is good, no plumes of smoke out the back and no lights on the dash.

    My question is...will Paraffin help if soaked for an hour or do I use brake cleaner...Thanks guys and gals...Tosh
