Do I really need a TerraClean service? Yes you do!
We are always asked ‘What is a TerraClean service and why do I need it done?’. We have put together a few of the most frequently asked questions below:
Q1: What is TerraClean?
A TerraClean service involves linking your vehicle to our unique equipment which using highly refined fuels and a patented process will remove carbon and other lacquers which build up in your engine, this restoring vehicle efficiency, improving MPG and reducing harmful emissions - as well as prolonging the life of various components, therefore reducing maintenance costs.
Q2: What do we actually do ?
We will link your vehicle to one of our TerraClean machines (either Petrol or Diesel). The machine will take over as the fuel supply for the vehicle and use a highly refined, none harmful fuel coupled with the patented technology of the equipment to remove the build up of carbon from your vehicle.
Q3: Is TerraClean any better than the pour-in I have been using for years ?
Yes. TerraClean is unique in the system of cleaning. It is not just about the chemistry, it uses patented technology. TerraClean cleans from Injectors through the combustion process and cleans post combustion too. Thus cleaning EGR & Diesel Particulate Filters. Pour in products are generally very good at cleaning intake and injectors but not post combustion. This applies to other equipment on the marketplace, which claim to clean the system, because they do not employ the same formulation and technology they are only cleaning intake and injection not full system and the all important post combusion parts of the fuel system.
Q4: Can you TerraClean any vehicle ?
Yes, we can do almost all vehicles. From a Motorcycle, Car, Van, HGV, Bus and Agricultural. There are a few exceptions which we can not do, but we can confirm when you arrange to book your vehicle in.
Q5: My vehicle runs on LPG can it be TerraCleaned ?
Yes. Most cars operating on LPG ran as petrol vehicles before conversion, and build up carbon deposits during that period. A TerraClean will remove those deposits. LPG does not create much carbon so a further service is not usually required.
Q6: I drive a Hybrid, does it need a TerraClean ?
Yes. Hybrid technology and vehicles which use Stop-Go systems to save fuel are inherently prone to carbon build up and will generally develop more carbon deposits than other vehicles with similar mileage.
Q7: When will my car need its first TerraClean service ?
As a general rule we say a car is due a TerraClean after about 15,000 miles. But if most mileage is done about town the service may be better done at a lower mileage, if most mileage is done at motorway speeds then less carbon will have built up and the service will be due at a slightly higher mileage.
Q8: What can I do on a routine basis to reduce carbon build up ?
Use of a good quality fuel will help reduce formation of some of the deposits, but the fact is that carbon build up is a natural by product of the combustion process and carbon will therefore naturally develop in a vehicle and build up until removed.
