Hi Adam,

 

I have heard of this method of decarbonisation but from what I have heard it is not something I would do to an engine.  Others may have a differing point of view.

 

I have the 2.7 twin turbo diesel in my S type and have had the engine Terracleaned which did make a difference both in performance and mpg, and others have had the same experience.

 

The mpg I get on a run of over 50 miles is now in the high forties with one case of a 89 mile drive mostly on the M1 with a 50 mph limit was just over 52 mpg.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

i tend to use archoil's diesel service pack when i get a new car.  it comes with three fluids, an oil additive to help reduce friction, a diesel additive to decarbonise pistons and chambers etc and another diesel additive to reduce the combustion.  makes a huge difference to the fuel combustion and effectively eliminates a smoky exhaust as well as boosting fuel economy.  have a look here

 

powerenhancer.co.uk

 

i go for the diesel service pack 2 and ive also purchased a cetane booster.  Adding these things won't be everyone's cup of tea, but i do believe it makes a difference to my car.  it also means that i can fill up at the local supermarket with their own diesel, put in the additive to the tank and i end up with essentially a tank of premium diesel for the price of the cheap stuff and the car loves me for it.

 

have a look at the site as there are more products on offer.  Also the reviews are very good, assuming they come from genuine customers!  their products do appear to be taken very seriously by other companies.  i admit to being a bit sceptical at first, but the stuff they sell is vastly superior to the additives you can buy in H*lfords!!

 

hope this helps

I run v power diesel through my cat . but still only getting 37 - 39mpg.. and with the car having 250000 miles on the clock im sure the internals are rather clogged. im at the minute running millers eco max through it . which I have been for the last month or so.

hey dumdum, i reckon you should have had a positive outcome by this time.  I've used millers ecomax too, but only until i found the archoil stuff.  i know its just anecdotal, but i find their products vastly superior to anything else i've tried previously. i don't know if its just me but i find that products i have read about and have to source myself seem to work better then the products you can buy via other general outlets.like i said, could be just me
