Removing carbon deposits makes a big difference
Dave Jones - Graham Walker Cars, Cheshire
“Over the years we’ve used FTC in everything from high performance and prestige cars to 4x4’s and a 7.5-ton horse lorry! FTC works really well at eliminating those troublesome little deposits that cause all sorts of annoying issues in engines. It has been my experience time & again that FTC is able to put the sparkle back into performance and cut exhaust emissions just by removing those deposits. It’s no great secret that a clean engine is always more efficient and economical than a dirty one! A cracking product that does exactly what it says.”
“I’d owned the ML for 8 months and it had 105,296 miles on the clock, when it was time for the 2017 MOT. At the test, the emission reading was 2.46 l/m and the examiner warned that it had only just scraped through. He said that with the change in emissions legislation from May 2018 onwards, if they were the same, it would fail the test and would have to be taken off the road. The acceptable level for the car, under the official guidelines, would then be 1.50 l/m. Several months later I mentioned the MOT emissions problem to an old friend. He suggested trying FTC, so I bought some and added them to the tank. After nearly 8,000 miles with FTC, I took the ML back for the 2018 MOT test. The emissions had now fallen to 0.68 l/m easily passing the emissions element of the MOT and well under the new 1.50 l/m limit. Fast forward 5,924 miles to the latest MOT test. The emissions have now reduced even further to just 0.10 l/m. It’s fair to say that the MOT examiners were surprised to see yet another big drop in the emissions. They’ve now tested the ML 3 times since it barely passed in 2017 and have seen the reductions in emissions for themselves. The miles per gallon is up from 26 to an overall average of 29mpg. I’m exceptionally pleased with the results I’ve gained as well as with the cars improved economy”.

“I have used the FTC in my Skoda 1.4 diesel. The little pellets were easily added, one by one, during refuelling. Although I was confident that a difference would be noticed, in the performance of the car, I really did not expect to so tangibly notice it the very next time I took it out but, there was without doubt a very real change in throttle responsiveness & acceleration. On a 25-mile run to Dorchester, which took in a familiar hill with a sharp bend on it, the difference really showed. Previously, on my own, I could just about make it up in third gear. With a passenger I’ve always had to drop into second gear. This time, with a passenger, the car took the hill and the bend very easily in third gear! The car really does fly along now with a much quieter and smoother engine. The change really has been quite remarkable. The significant reduction in the engines operating temperature and exhaust gas emission levels, between the last two MOTs, shows how well FTC works”.

“The FTC tablets arrived very promptly and I added them to the tank. The change in performance was noticeable within a very short time. Where before, there had been a little lag and hesitation, there was now just instant, on-tap power. I’d assumed that it might make a bit of a difference but not as big and startling as this. In a big, heavy 4x4! It’s no understatement to say that the car really does go like a rocket now. And in terms of emissions, first thing each morning I used to reverse up my driveway through thick clouds of black smoke, but now, there is nothing! On the first long run for work there was also a very noticeable increase in fuel efficiency which, when calculated, equates to well over £20 on a full tank. So, the car is doing way better mileage than ever before and probably more than it should actually do! Just by adding some little pellets to the tank, the car has completely changed its behaviour. Its faster, smoother, has way better acceleration, economy and no exhaust smoke. Jack, a friend of mine bought FTC at the same time as me. He called to ask what I thought but, before I could say anything, he said, “Tim. I’m gob-smacked at the difference they’ve made to the performance”. All the lads in the local have now got themselves some and many work colleagues too. It’s fair to say that I’m still astounded by how well FTC works”.
“I’ve had my Skoda Fabia 1.9 tdi [100bhp] for 4 years. It’s well very well maintained, regularly serviced and I’ve always meticulously recorded the mileage and fuel usage. In Guernsey the speed limits are very low, typically 25 or 35 mph so the car never really gets the opportunity to run hot or hard which, as we all know, diesels need to keep them operating efficiently. The car rarely travels more than 3 or 4 miles in any one trip here on the island, so it’s fair to say the car is not really being used in the way a diesel car should be. The Skoda has always averaged 42-43 mpg here on Guernsey. At the first fill up after adding FTC the mileage had gone up to 46 mpg. I was very pleased to see the improvement and it’s fair to say that I would have been more than happy with that result. However, by the time I filled for the 3rd time the cars economy had improved to an impressive 50mpg! The economy has never fallen below that figure since! I can certainly say that the engine definitely pulls better, certainly 'feels' smoother and there is virtually no exhaust smoke if I do put my foot down hard occasionally. I’m really looking forward to using it away from the island on a decent long run! Having driven approximately 2 million miles during my driving life, my only regret is I didn't find FTC earlier! I'd have saved a great deal of money”.
“Throughout my working life as a City & Guilds qualified motor mechanic, I have seen first-hand the very real damage that carbon deposits and carbon build ups cause in engines. Deposits can cost motorists a great deal of money both in fuel inefficiency, speeding up wear & tear and in replacing expensive parts. I’ve enclosed two MOT emissions test certificates to show the difference the FTC pellets have made to the emissions on my Hyundai Terrican 2.9 TD. I bought the car new in 2004 and when I added the FTC pellets in early 2018 it had 43,249 miles on the clock. The difference, even though I’ve only been driving short trips since adding FTC has seen the opacity reading falling from 1.88 to 0.70 in February 2020. You are more than welcome to print my letter and excellent results”.

“The performance and the fuel economy of my Astra 1.6 have completely changed since I put the FTC pellets in the tank. It’s just not the same car as before. It’s really quiet, very smooth and much, much quicker than it was. You’d never think that something as easy as adding some little pellets to the fuel tank would make such a big difference but it really has. I have to keep my eye on the speedo now as the car is so much quicker since FTC was added! I don’t think there’s anyone I know who hasn’t bought some FTCs too. Really pleased with them. Thank you”.

“I’ve been using FTC in all the family cars for many years with excellent results. The first car I used FTC in was a 130,000 mile Peugeot 5008 I was using as a taxi. With FTC I saw the emissions in that car fall from just under 1.50 to 0.01. An absolutely staggering result. The latest results for my Audi are equally as good. When I bought the car I had it tested and it gave a reading of 1.62. This car isn’t used as a taxi so it only does low mileage but in a matter of months the emissions have already halved to 0.82! Based on past experience I expect this figure to continue to fall as the mileage increases. FTC makes a big difference to performance, emissions and mpg just by clearing out any hidden engine deposits that have built up”.
Ian Taylor, West Yorkshire
“The engine is smoother and quieter, acceleration is effortless (was a slight hesitation before) mpg has improved, cruising is a pleasure. It feels like I am driving a more powerful 3 litre rather than a 2 litre! I don’t understand how it works but it does. A brilliant product”.
“You can’t argue with your cars own computer and you can’t argue if you know your car is quicker than it was before. My little Abarth had always returned between 38 and 39 miles to the gallon. Since dropping FTC into my fuel tank it is now returning just over 43 mpg! I haven’t changed my fuel, my engine oil or even the way I drive and my husband still takes the car for a weekly thrashing every Saturday!! I just dropped FTC into the fuel tank, it was as simple as that. It’s been proven right in front of my eyes. It’s now quicker and more fun to drive, just like it having a new car again. The Abarth is definitely more eager to please since using FTC; acceleration is better, the car really pulls well and the engine note is a more ‘throaty’ than before. But what has impressed me most of all is the economy that has been proven right in front of my eyes. And you can’t argue with proof. FTC is a brilliantly cheeky way to squeeze more power and more miles out of every gallon. My neighbour’s using FTC now in his Volvo diesel estate. His car is up from 36 to 40 mpg since using FTC and is quicker and more responsive too. Would I recommend? YES, wholeheartedly. If a cynic like me is convinced FTC works, what more can you say? I’m really impressed with FTC and the results speak for themselves”.
“We run a clay pigeon business called Game On Shooting. We operate simulated game shooting days and need dependable 4x4s to cope with the various terrains we encounter. Being confident with your 4x4 on & off road is key and knowing that the engine is responsive, dependable and up to the job is part of that mind set. I have spent a good deal of time around plant/agricultural machinery and have an keen interest in diesel engines. I have always been keen on regular maintenance and have used fuel additives to keep the engines clean and increase fuel efficiency. When I read about this ‘one-off treatment’ I contacted FTC and bought some pellets for one of our Toyota 4x4’s. I quickly noticed that the Hilux was just a nicer vehicle to drive. The engine was more responsive, it was a lot quieter and the fuel economy was better. I was so impressed with these FTC pellets, I called again and bought two more packs for the other 4x4 and Mercedes E320 CDI. On the Toyota Land Cruiser there is no black smoke, a much quieter engine and bucket loads of torque which was simply not there before. The most impressive reaction to the fuel treatment is the Mercedes E320 cdi. This car has a 3.2 litre straight six, common rail diesel which was no slouch before I dropped the pellets in the tank. This Mercedes has been transformed into a fuel efficient land missile so much so that it is truly unbelievable; from around 40 mpg average to nearly 50 mpg overall. It’s completely bonkers!! Both the Toyota 4x4’s are nicer vehicles to drive and have hugely benefited from FTC. All three vehicles are better for having these pellets dropped into the tanks, it sounds mad but it’s true. I even have these pellets in my garden tractor which is only 16hp and I can tell the difference on that. FTC has given absolutely brilliant results off-road and on-road too. The only negative is that once you use FTC, you will bore everyone half to death constantly telling them just how good these things really are. You have been warned!!”.
“I have a Golf GT TDI and I recently purchased and installed FTC. I have noticed a really great change in the performance of the car. The MPG has increased giving a much better fuel consumption than standard. The cars acceleration is far more responsive and a much smoother drive. Thanks very much for this great product, I would thoroughly recommend it".
“I recently changed from a new Fiat 500X to a slightly older Toyota Hilux to better suit my work use. When I changed, I knew that my fuel bill would increase a fair bit as the Hilux is a 2.5l over the 1.6l of the Fiat, but I really needed the pick-up for work. My boss told me how he used FTC in his Landrover Defender and was getting a good few extra miles to the gallon. So I decided to try it in the Hilux and see whether I could gain a bit more economy. Before the Hilux was returning anywhere from around 27 to 30 mpg. Once I’d dropped FTC into the tank it wasn’t long before there was a noticeable effect. The first thing was the way the car pulled. I could tell there was a difference. I could tell then and can still can feel it now. There has also been a very clear improvement in vehicles economy. With the FTC pellets in the tank, I’m now seeing figures of between 34 to 38 mpg depending on the type of driving and load. The Hilux has much better acceleration and is smoother through the entire rev range and I’m still only using standard fuel, I’ve not switched to the premium fuel at all. I’d recommend FTC to anyone who’s conscious of their fuel economy and wants to see better performance. I’m left with no doubt in my mind whatsoever that FTC really does what it says”.
“My car’s performance is now outstanding all thanks to the little FTC’s. I’d heard about FTC fuel pellets from several people who belong to the same club as me. They said their cars were performing better and had an improved MPG. I was dubious. When I changed my E Class Mercedes 320 to a Volvo V70 I really missed the performance. It was then that I decided to try FTC. When the FTC arrived I took a note of my mileage [I already knew my MPG] and dropped the small metal tablets down into the tank. That was on Thursday evening. Friday I had to go to Winchester with my wife on errands. There was without doubt something happening under the bonnet. The car just felt more eager. As we pulled onto M27 I was quite frankly blown away. It just pulled and pulled and pulled. Several weeks later the garage collected the car for a service. When my mechanic, Andy, who I have used for over ten years, dropped the car back he said to me, “have you had that chipped, it goes like a rocket”? I laughed and told him about the little FTC tablets. Now they’re converts too! Since then the car has certainly continued to improve and the MPG is better by well over 10%. [Update Aug ‘17]I’ve also installed FTC in my 1974 MGBGT and the effect is just as noticeable. It’s a marvelous thing to really enjoy starting engine no matter how long or short a trip you’re off on. Totally sold on this fantastic, low cost little product”.
“Before using the FTC my car was very noisy and it didn’t have very much power. Now with FTC fitted the car runs beautifully and is so much quieter. It has more power and better fuel consumption. Thank you, my car drives great!”.
“More oomph and at least 20 miles more from a tank is not to be sniffed at. FTC has completely eliminated black smoke from the engine when starting or accelerating and has certainly given the Landy more power. We’re adding FTC to our plant and heavier vehicles with excellent results".
