After watching this episode of wheeler dealers

I thought I would give it a try, to see if I could get better MPG, I was sceptical and thought it was a load of rubbish.

Am a fast food delivery driver so I put in a lot of miles on short stop & start journeys, I have never had more than 38.9 mpg doing the deliveries, however on motorway I can probably get it up to a max of 42.9.

After seeing the episode of wheeler dealers with the clip in vid above, I thought it's worth a try.

So after spending a good few hours reading up about it online, and failing to find more than a couple of bad reviews, but thousands singing it's praises, I took the plunge.

I contacted the local dealer for terraclean
Andy on 07704028449 website

He came to my house set up the system and let it get to work, the whole process took just over 1 hour.

Doing deliveries I normally get no more than 38.9 mpg, last night I got this
it was up and down by no more than 3mpg either way.
Now, that is a good a reason to get it done, IT DOES WORK.

It seems an interesting system. Let us know Willo, if the better mpg holds out for a decent period, ie how long before the carbon/crud reappears? You've got to get your outlay (70 ?) back plus a chunk more to make it worthwhile. I'm not into "performance" as such, just better mpg !

Keep us up to speed on how it goes please !

Snake oil. if there really was anything in this, the car makers would fit it as standard.

It was designed as a zero emissions fuel (and it was), but was too expensive.

If they did see me coming, then they seen thousands coming and has us all over, so all the other people who have seen there mpg go up and emissions go done, they are all imagining it, and must all be crazy as you say it does nothing, well I have News for you, YOUR WRONG, and your talking rubbish.

38.9 mpg up to 56.6, so I was dreaming this was I, I take it I should stop using these N.R.T products as they are making me see things that are not happening.

Nice to see someone who has used the service, giving such a good review.
You have used it haven't you ? if not I find it hard to understand how you can be so negative and give bad review, about something you have never used.

No like I said in my first post, which you must of missed, I am a fast food delivery driver.

My understanding was it was a fuel system cleaner, therefor the more neglect your car has been exposed to, the better the results.

Bottom line is, it runs through the system and cleans it so the results can be no better than to restore performance and economy back to how the car was as new.

Also, the only accurate way to measure mpg, is fill the tank, reset the Odo, drive, and record the distance traveled when you refill the tank also noting the amount of fuel required to refil the tank wink

I think it is just a cleaner, and yes if it magically increased mpg every manufacturer on the planet would have fitted it, but it does seem to do what it claims, and that is to "restore" mpg.

Someone like Willo who is doing a lot of stop/start and fairly short journeys would have a build up of crud (technical term) in his engine as it would never get hot enough, for long enough, to burn it away. That's why all these little cars that never get out of third have exhausts that rot from the inside, because they never get hot enough to evaporate the condensation that builds up in them.

If this stuff has cleaned it and the mpg has increased then over time it'll pay for itself.
