FTC Decarbonizer is added directly to the fuel tank (diesel or gasoline) at time of fill up.
It is recommended to use a ‘double dose’ for the first few tankfuls of fuel so that it can do a thorough job of oxidizing tough carbon deposits in combustion areas as quickly and effectively as possible – this includes piston rings, ring grooves, exhaust valves, turbochargers, piston crowns, and deglazing cylinder bores. The amount or the severity of the hard carbon deposits will determine how quickly the oxidizing process takes – if there is not much carbon build up, the results will be achieved sooner than if there is a large amount of carbon build up to be oxidized. Every engine is different in this respect. Thereafter, the single dose rate can be used to continue to clean further deposits, and to keep the complete combustion area clean and working efficiently, particularly significantly reducing the production of engine-destroying soot. Continued use over time ensures maximum fuel efficiency and power, smooth engine operation, and less harmful emissions/exhaust smoke – all resulting in longer engine life and lower ongoing maintenance costs.
Large diesel engines: Detroit, Mack, Cat, large Cummins etc
Add 20oz per 100 gallons for the first 500 gallons of fuel (500ml per 400 liters for the first 2000 liters of fuel)
Thereafter, add 10oz per 100 gallons of fuel (250ml per 400 liters of fuel)
Small diesel & gasoline engines:
Add 2oz per 10 gallons for the first 50 gallons of fuel (50ml per 40 liters for the first 200 liters of fuel)
Thereafter, add 1oz per 10 gallons of fuel (25ml per 40 liters of fuel)
As a rule of thumb, and depending on the vehicle’s fuel/gas mileage, the following is usually helpful in determining which size is most suitable for your application –
- 16 ounces of FTC Decarbonizer is usually enough to treat a small car or SUV-type vehicle.
- 32 & 64 ounces of FTC Decarbonizer is usually enough to treat small to medium trucks, RV’s and some machinery.
- 1 gallon & 2 gallons of FTC Decarbonizer is usually enough to treat large trucks and machinery.
