Yes.
The sooner they are used, the sooner they start protecting your vehicles.
Generally, start using the AW10 Antiwear after the first oil change in engines to allow some initial bed it to occur.

For all other components, AW10 can be used from new.

All but two are Aussie made.

The Provent 200 is German made, and the bench mark for oil catch cans.

The RMI-25 Cooling System is a stand-out American product.

 

If our products have not shown an improvement to your vehicle’s problem, contact us so we can provide expert advice on how to further use our products and provide a solution to your problem.  

Should the problem persist and the vehicle does not have excessive component wear or actual mechanical issues, return the remaining unused products to Cost Effective Maintenance for a refund.

OUR FUEL TREATMENTS

No. They all mix easily and will not settle out.

Both Cleanpower and CRD Fuel Enhancer reduce fuel oxidation and degradation, and resultant fuel system fouling.

In addition FTC Decarbonizer can also be added to assist in burning aged petrol and diesel cleanly,

as well as protecting against diesel bug.

Yes

FTC Decarbonizer is a genuine biocide and a lot safer to use compared to some other biocides.

  • Kills diesel fuel growths

It will kill diesel fuel growths (bacteria, fungi, algae) quickly, and most importantly  little or no fuel filter plugging issues.

kill diesel growth with FTC Decarbonizer

Yes! They do different jobs, and it can be advantageous to use them together.

Cleanpower and CRD Fuel Enhancer can be used with the FTC Decarbonizer (No need to use CRD and Cleanpower together).

Cleanpower is suitable for all petrol and diesel applications.

CRD Fuel Enhancer is developed with strong lubricity and corrosion control chemicals to suit the modern breed of common rail diesel engines. (not suitable for petrol engines.)

CRD Fuel Enhancer:

  • Cleans common rail fuel injectors,
  • Restores spray patterns
  • Stops injector rattles
  • Lubricates and protects common rail diesel fuel systems. 
  • Not only does it clean and restore failing injectors it also boosts diesel lubricity.

Cleanpower

  • Suitable for both Petrol and Diesel engines.
  • Designed as a full fuel system cleaner,
  • Petrol and diesel fuel injector cleaner 
  • Cleaning fuel lines, pumps and most importantly injectors.

Cleanpower fuel treatment

FTC Decarbonizer  acts as a combustion catalyst to burn carbon from combustion and exhaust spaces, turbos
and DPF’s.

  • Restores power and economy
  • Reduces oil use and blowby
  • Deglazes and de-cokes engines
  • Cuts smoke
  • Fast cold starts
  • Cleans diesel particulate filters
  • Extends turbocharger life
  • Kills diesel fuel growths

CRD: If sever overdosing occurs there is minimal risk of any engine fault.
There is a slight possibility of a little white smoke out the exhaust unitl the ratio returns to recommended dose.
In extreme cases refuel the tank more regularly to help return to correct dosage recommended.

Cleanpower: No concerns with overdosing.

Flushing Oil Concentrate: No concerns with overdosing.

FTC Decarbonizer: No concerns with overdosing.

AW10: If extreme overdosing occurs replace oil and AW10 to recommended levels.

CEM products are highly concentrated liquids exceeding recommended dosage is unnecessary.

FLUSHING OIL CONCENTRATE

Yes. The sooner they are used, the sooner they start protecting your vehicles, and the longer they’ll last and stay at peak performance and efficiency.

Generally, start using the AW10 Antiwear after the first oil change in engines to allow some initial bed in to occur. CRD Fuel Enhancer is perfect for new vehicles.

The cleaner the oil the better the result. Some engines may have a very large accumulation of sludge to remove.

By adding the flushing oil concentrate in with clean oil you will get a much better result and remove all built-up engine sludge.

Flushing oil concentrate remove oil sludge

In most cases, Flushing Oil Concentrate reduces oil use markedly by providing a clean seal for piston rings against ring grooves and the cylinder walls.

Very few exceptions occur unless severe wear or damage exists.

We do recommend care when flushing petrol engines from the 1980’s and earlier. They are more likely to burn oil if they have had a poor maintenance history.

In some  poorly maintained vehicles a second flush maybe be required.

Flushing oil concentrate remove engine sludge

Some other flushes use solvents to clean, and these could have the potential to adversely affect seals, O-rings and other elastomers.

Flushing Oil Concentrate is much safer!

It uses a detergent type product as all engine oils do

  • Non Abrasive
  • Solvent Neutral
  • Detergent based

Flushing Oil Concentrate targets heavier deposit molecules such as hard baked on carbon and heavy persistent sludge as well as easier deposits.

Flushing oil concentrate remove engine sludge

Flushing Oil Concentrate is a detergent based oil system cleaner capable of dissolving and removing the most stubborn carbon and sludge
Engine Sludge can be the cause of oil consumption, smoke, blow by, power loss and other problems.

  • Removes engine sludge & hard carbon.
  • Frees stuck piston rings.
  • Reduces smoke, blowby & oil use.
  • Restores compression.
  • Prevents diesel oil going black straight after a change.

It is suitable for petrol and diesel engines.

AW10 ANTIWEAR

Yes, AW10 is suitable.

1% Ratio 10 mL per litre of transmission fluid.

AW10 Antiwear

AW10 Antiwear is a powerful anti-friction, anti-wear treatment for engine, gear, differential and hydraulic oils. It also provides excellent anti-rust protection.
AW10 Antiwear is formulated to deliver massive increases in lubricant load carrying ability.
Suitable in all engines, transmission diffs and hydraulics

  • Boosts oil strength
  • Reduces wear and friction
  • Excellent rust protection
  • Suitable for all engines, transmissions, power steering, diffs and hydraulic applications
  • Ideal protection for automatics when towing
  • Smoother gear changes
  • Reduces stress in all components

May not be suitable for wet clutches.

RMI-25 RADIATOR FLUSH

RMI-25 is highly concentrated and much cheaper than glycol types. Unlike glycol, it is non-toxic and environmentally safe.
RMI-25 Cooling System Treatment

RM-25 Cooling System Treatment

RMI-25 strongly retards electrolysis and prevents corrosion and also provides lubrication for heater valves and water pump seals. RMI-25 Cooling system flush
No, the RMI-25 is a complete cooling system package. Most Australians do not need anti-freeze, but where it is required, add some glycol to the system as well. RMI-25 Cooling system flush
Yes. It passivates rubber resulting in longer hose life . RMI-25 Cooling system radiator flush
RMI-25 is a concentrated additive designed to clean and protect your radiator while you drive . The RMI-25 dissolves rust and scale while lubricating the water pump. RMI-25 Cooling system radiator flush
