Ok so i have decided its time to spend some money and get the engine on my car terracleaned.
I use my car for most journies. The longer ones with the caravan on the back.

So my car has over 49K on the clock and iv used decent fuels and cleaners all its life. (bought the car from new)

I have heard lots of good stuff about terraclean and i also have done lots of research on this cleaning method so i thought why not try it and see what improvements ill get out of my engine.
Surley a good clean will make the engine perform better and give a little bit better mpg.

The terraclean is pricey but from all the research iv done it seems allot of the customers have reported a great improvement in their cars, with some reporting a 3-4mpg improvement and a better running engine.

So has anyone had this method done on their car?

Ill be getting mine done in the next few days if the fella near mine isnt too busy.

I saw it on wheeler dealers too. (really like that programme)

It looks good and seems to be tried and tested.

When i have been looking into it, seems the overall process takes upto an hour.
The longest part seems to be connecting the machine to the car. The car will run from the machine for 20-30 minutes at 2000rpm ish which then allows the cleaner to do its job.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of improvements you get with Terraclean, assuming you have a fairly good idea of what you get mpg wise etc right now and that your car doesn't have any known faults.

I like Wheeler Dealers myself, Ed China rocks. He's a great mechanic in fact he's more than a mechanic, he has to be with all that rubbish the wee fat one buys and puts his way to get sorted.
