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.

MOT Emissions Testing – TerraClean Rescue
We all get a little nervous when it comes to MOT testing time for our vehicles, and whilst you can check almost everything else beforehand, emissions can be the reason that many of our vehicles fail our MOT’s.
But they can be hard to monitor until the MOT test, and even more difficult to reduce effectively. However, a Terraclean engine de-carbonisation service can reduce your carbon emission massively in time for a test, as well as regaining lost performance and MPG.
If you take a look at the image below, you will see the MOT results of a diesel vehicle, with the emissions results highlighted.
As you can see, the car failed to stay under the passing limit (3.00 l/m) and it failed it’s emissions test. But a few hours later and after a Terraclean, the Mean Absorption dropped to 1.44 1/m, well within the 3.00 limit and the vehicle passed it’s emissions test.

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.
