WATCH: Fuel Combustion Catalyst In Action

There are a number of people that don’t believe fuel additives work. This could be for a number of reasons, like not noticing a difference in their vehicle, or, in the case of combustion catalysts, just not being able to see the combustion event with their own eyes. At this point, there really are just two things that can be done about it. Believe blindly that the fuel additive works, or prove it. We chose to prove it.

Everything You Need to Know About Carbon Deposits

The majority of people who own a gas or diesel engine powered “something” know that their engines are prone to have carbon build up.  These carbon deposits form on the inside of the combustion chamber and valves.  But How?  What exactly is carbon build up – and why is it bad?  How can carbon deposits be removed?  It isn’t easy, but it is absolutely possible.
