    Default Terra Clean

    Evening, anyone on here had there fuel system de-carbonised using Terra Clean? Getting mine done on monday and just wondered if any of you guys have had it done and if a noticeable difference was apparent.

    Sounds an interesting concept, also interested on the results.

    I will post up the results after my 700 mile round trip the day afterwards, that should test out whether it is good. According to the website:

    TerraClean is the by-product of research being carried out by a group of environmentally conscious Canadian physicists in their attempts to create an ultra low emission internal combustion engine. Their test vehicles were retrofitted with a "molecular injector" so they were operating the "TerraClean" system as part of the vehicle's on board fuel system. When their technicians stripped down the vehicles to evaluate impact of the technology they identified the fact that there was little evidence of carbon build up. Uncertain if this was due to the vehicles ages they specifically applied the technology to a known older vehicle, operated the TerraClean technology, then stripped down this vehicle too. The point was proven, all the carbon which would have build up in this vehicle throughout its years of operation was gone. Regrettably the running costs of operating a vehicle full time on the chemical solution with the molecular injector as part of the vehicle made the project commercially non viable.

    BUT, A new idea came to light -

    A reverse engineering exercise was then conducted to identify why the TerraClean process had cleaned the engine. Also they extended the technology to consider how to develop the technology further to decarbonise an engine and the entire fuel system.

    TerraClean is a revolutionary, advanced and effective decarbonisation solution to this problem, ideal for today's high compression, multi-valve, direct injection, petrol engines.

    TerraDiesel now offers an equally effective solution from the same experts for decarbonisation of modern, high performance diesel engines.

    Yes mate, there is currently only a few garages in Scotland doing it and one is in my area, I had the Vec in for a front flexi pipe replacement yesterday when the guy who owns the garage showed me his new investment; the Terra Clean machine. He explained the concept and showed me a short video, the one of Wheeler Dealers! He said he has only done a few cars so far but the results have been amazing and will do it before my road trip so I can report back with the results. Fuel economy will be the big one but I will also be looking at an improved response and smoother running. He is so confident that there will be a NOTICEABLE difference as well as increased MPG that he will refund me if not! Result.

    He quoted me £70 for my 1.8 VVTi but Im not sure if thats with any mates rates discount! larger engines and deisels cost a bit more but I would think everywhere will be similar prices, Im hoping my drive to Chesterfield will prove it was worth it! I will let yous know, I was running an average of 35 mpg on my last trip down. The car is approaching 60k and Im hoping this will give it a mid-life boost as well as cutting down the emissions.

    Will be interesting to get an independent view on this.

    Indeed, I don't think £70 is bad if it does what it says, I have asked him if I can watch him do it as well. I will report back in due course.
