What is Engine Carbon Build-Up and How to Get Rid of It

We all know that as the miles pile up on your car, its performance decreases and fuel consumption increases while shudder, hesitation and dieseling make the whole experience of driving less enjoyable. What a lot of drivers do not understand is that this is not inevitable and by taking some early action that is both cheap and easy, the slow decline can be reversed. It is possible to have that as-knew experience again even in a quite old car.

Originally, engines utilised a carburetor system that mixed the fuel and air upstream and outside of the combustion chamber. Nowadays, we have direct injection engines. This latest evolution in fuel delivery systems was introduced to deliver a precisely measured amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber.

The jet of fuel/air enters the combustion chamber at a very high pressure at a low volume and duration. Technically, this allows the engine to produce more power with a lower fuel bill and of course reduced emissions, which is great, but the downside of a Direct Injection Engine is that they are really prone to carbon accumulation.

The build is particular bad on the piston head and exhaust valve and can lead to pre-ignition, pinking, dieseling and more. These deposits will significantly reduce the performance of the engine. The only practical solution to this is to use a chemical additive on a regular basis to avoid potentially critical damage to your car.

X-1R, probably the most trusted global additive brand, has spent decades researching and testing and refining their products so that they meet the highest standards in the automotive world whilst delivering true customer satisfaction. The products produced by X-1R are so good that they have been supplied to NASA since 1996, and still do. The X-1R 5-in-1 Decarboniser is recognised to be the best in the market and has been adopted for use in the preventative maintenance package of a number of Japanese and European manufacturers.

The greatest thing about X-1R Decarboniser is that all you need to do is pour it into your fuel tank and go. If you would like to find out more about X-1R Decarboniser visit their website at www.x1rasia.com.
