A fantastic case study was carried out recently by Econcervative and we wanted to share it with you. Sometimes no matter how good we say a product is the proof is in the pudding – as they say.
As Econcervative point out the ‘normal way’ to approach engine wear and carbon build-up would be to manually strip down and de-coke the engine including fuel injectors. This can be expensive due to the amount of labour involved and for many car owners something they don’t see worth doing, taking into account miles and age of the vehicle.
The test vehicle Econcervative used was their very own trusty Volkswagen Passat Estate with a 1.9 litre turbo diesel engine. It was just 5 years old when purchased, with 96,000 miles on the clock delivering an average of 49 miles per gallon (MPG).
Now 11 years old with 220,000 miles on the clock, its average performance had reduced to 45.5 MPG. Other than a few parts being changed, the engine had never been touched since they had owned it.
So what did they find out after the Terraclean?
1 – There was an immediate improvement in responsiveness
2 – New fuel performance averaged 48 mpg; 6% improvement
3 – 70% reduction of smoke emissions that brought car well below NCT Diesel smoke emission standard of 1.5 m-1
Well what a result, no need to remove any parts from the vehicle and it took less than 2 hours to complete. Good job Terraclean Ireland.

Fiat Bravo 1.9JTD Terraclean Shrewsbury
The owner of this Fiat had been thinking about having his car remapped for a while and when we spoke about the “clean and tune package” we offer, (A terraclean and then a performance remap) the owner was very keen to get it booked in.
The aim of this was to get as much performance as possible so we began with the Terraclean to remove all of the carbon build up from the engine as the carbon could be reducing power and worsening economy.
With the carbon build up cleaned from inside the engine, you can in some instances see gains of up to 13% more power after and a much improved throttle response and smoother power delivery. The engine is also a lot quieter and it also improves fuel economy and reduces the emissions.
After the Terraclean was complete we then added one of our Performance remaps which added another 40bhp and 70nm of torque to make it just that little bit quicker as this is what the owner wanted.

Ford Transit Owner Shocked After TerraClean At Ace Car Care Shrewsbury
The owner of this Ford Transit was very skeptical about having a Terraclean carried out on his Diesel Engine, as he thought at the high mileage it had done, a TerraClean would not make a great deal of difference, and so not be worth spending his money on it.
But after popping into the Ace Car Care centre in Shrewsbury, and having a chat with us, as well as looking at the great reviews we had been getting from other vehicle owners who’d had a TerraClean at Ace Car Care, he decided to get it booked in and see for himself.
As you can see in the email he sent in, he was over the moon with the difference it had made.In fact he was so impressed with the improvement the TerraClean had made to his work Transit, that 2 days later he bought in his personal Volvo V70 for a TerraClean treatment.
And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, his wife tried out the Volvo and was so pleased with the improvement it had made, that 2 days later she brought in her own personal Mini Cooper S to get that TerraCleaned too.
Audi A6 2.0tdi Terraclean Shrewsbury
The owner of this Audi A6 2.0tdi had already had us carry out a performance remap at Ace Car Care in Shrewsbury, and was really pleased with the extra performance when he felt a bit ‘sporty’, but also the improved economy when he needed it.
After hearing about Terraclean and reading the great reviews we had been receiving here at Ace Car Care, since offering the TerraClean service, he was very keen to have it done to his Audi A6 2.0 TDi to see if and what improvements the TerraClean would make.
Around about an hour or 2 later we received a message to say how much of a difference it had made to the car. He told us that it was performing better than it had ever done, and the TerraClean felt like having a mini remap, with the throttle response giving an even better and smoother power delivery, and he was also surprised as the engine was also a lot quieter than before.
With the experience we’ve had with the TeraClean service we’ve carried out on customers car here at Ace Car Care, we weren’t surprised by this Audi owners reactions, as this is typical of the sort of results you get once TerraClean has done it’s job, removing carbon from the engine & exhaust internal.
TerraClean Shrewsbury Gives Kia Sorrento A Clean
The owner of this Kia Sorrento had owned it for about a year or so, and although it was a pretty powerful motor, because he towed with it, he wanted just a little bit more grunt.
Originally he came in to talk to us about a remap, but as he was a lorry driver he knew all about the effects of carbon build-up on an engines efficiency & performance. So when we told him about the TerraClean Shrewsbury service, and how it would remove carbon from inside the engine & exhaust, he was keen to have it done.
We put a package together for him to have both the remap & the TerraClean de-carbonising treatment, and he left the Kia with us for a few hours, before returning back to us to pick up his Sorrento.
After the remap & TerraClean, his journey home was very interesting. As soon as he drove the Kia, it was immediately apparent of the change in the way it drove, and he wanted to let us know how pleased he was with the improvement that had been made to an already great vehicle.
You can read the comments that he left on our Facebook page in the photo opposite. And we’re really happy that he took the time & trouble to share his TerraClean experience with other car, van, HGV & camper owners who may looking to regain the performance & fuel economy lost by carbon build-up.

Vauxhall Zafira TerraClean Treatment Gives Great Results
As a result of burning fuel (diesel or petrol) your engine will get carbon built up on the internal parts that regular servicing doesn’t touch. And the more miles the engine clocks up, the worse the situation gets.
When we booked this Vauxhall Zafira DTi in for a TerraClean decarbonising treatment. we were expecting to get some good results, but we were all amazed at what improvements were actually made. Just take a look at what the customer wrote on our FaceBook page:
