How to improve fuel economy and boost engine power

To get better fuel economy and increase your engine power, you need to ensure the following. It will help you get more kilometres per litre and improved engine performance.

Make sure that.

  • The crankcase (oil-wetted side of the engine) is free of deposits…everywhere!
  • The fuel system is totally clean, especially pumps and injectors.
  • The inlet air & induction system is totally clean & free of obstructions.
  • Combustion and exhaust spaces are free of deposits that prevent the engine breathing at full efficiency.
  • Optimize the lubrication of both the engine and drive line. The aim is to maintain strong lubrication, while minimizing frictional losses.

Improved fuel economy and engine power: The basics

To improve fuel economy and performance, you need to start with the basics… and this means getting things clean!

Why? Because carboned up combustion and exhaust spaces (incl turbochargers) don’t let the engine breathe efficiently, cause poor fuel atomization, and reduced turbo boost. Power loss and poor fuel economy result, but can be rectified with FTC Decarbonizer use. FTC Decarbonizer will burn off any carbon contacted by the fuel flame, and continues downstream in the exhaust. So, it will actually burn off turbo deposits, which prevent it “spooling up” at earlier RPM’s.

Sticking piston rings cause substantial compression loss and as you know, compression loss hurts both your engine power and fuel economy. Sludge and deposits reduce lubrication efficiency and cause extra internal drag. Flushing Oil Concentrate, used in the oil for 30 minutes, will restore power and economy, which has been lost due to fouling deposits.

Fuel system sediments and other fouling deposits interfere with accurate fuel metering and correct fuel atomization. Marked power and efficiency losses can occur. Cleanpower Fuel System Treatment is the powerful, safe and efficient corrective measure, providing finer fuel atomization and improved power and economy.

To get even better fuel economy and engine power

Once everything has been cleaned up, the engine performance can be further optimized by using the following products.

FTC Decarbonizer. The faster fuel burn releases more of the fuel’s energy closer to top dead centre, with less tail end burning out the exhaust, producing more power.

AW10 Antiwear. This will fortify any oil (mineral or synthetic) to provide more intimate, and much stronger lubrication. Frictional losses are reduced to release more power.

John Orth of Ormeau (QLD) uses the Triton for everyday running and towing the caravan also. After using FTC Decarbonizer, he says, “The engine power improvement is unbelievable! Turbo lag has now disappeared. There is less smoke, and it’s idling much smoother!” John’s also used the Flushing Oil Concentrate and has removed a lot of sludge, and declares… “The valve gear, as viewed from the oil filler point, is now clean!”

Bought Decarbonizer and the Flushing Oil Concentrate to use on my tractor and excavator, sadly a... bit too late for the digger....needs a rebuild. But the tractor was a definite improvement, the engine ran sweeter and a lot less gunk from the exhaust, really noticeable. Thoroughly recommend, the only suggestion is to maybe reconsider the product names....bit confusing. But names are not everything, absolutely worth the money. Many thanksread more

Frankly, I am astounded with the difference. I have been using the FTC Decarbonizer for the last... 1,500k. My mechanic has warned me the engine on my Winnebago Motorhome (Chevy 6.5L turbo diesel, 17 yrs old, 225k on the clock) was exhibiting signs of blow-by. There is now no evidence of smoke from the exhaust under load, the performance has improved, the engine just runs smoother, but incredibly it starts first time after being a difficult starter for several years. I am looking forward to its next service to see what the mechanic has to say. Great product.read more

I have used the AW10 in several cars now. It has made a HUGE difference in all of them. My little... junk Barina that I drive to the train station had a noisy engine and it got hot fast. After using the AW10, it is quiet and the temp takes a while to get to it's working temp. The car runs really well now. All the other cars are running well too.The Rust Conqueror is AMAZING. Works so much better than anything else I have tried. I first saw the XTroll rust treatment way back in the late 80's. It was fantastic back then. Over time I lost the can and moved states. I needed to treat some rust and nothing I used worked properly. I searched for the XTroll and found it with the Cost Effective Maintenance team. They were so helpful. The stuff isn't cheap but it is more than worth it. You want your equipment to last, Use the AW10 and XTroll. Look at the other products too. You won't regret it.read more
