Fuel & Emissions System Cleaning
What is the Fuel System and How Does it Work?
The fuel system provides power to your engine. After about 4,000 to 5,000 miles of driving, dirt, varnishes and carbon deposits form in the fuel system, on the intake valves and in the combustion chamber. These buildups reduce performance, and left untreated, can lead to costly engine repairs. To help keep your engine running at peak performance, the fuel needs to be as clean as possible.

How Often to Perform a Fuel & Emissions System Cleaning
Manufacturers have yet to include fuel & emissions cleaning in their maintenance schedules. However, a vehicle can lose up to 15% of its original efficiency after only 30,000 miles due to carbon buildup. For optimum performance and minimum emissions, most manufacturers of fuel and emissions system cleaners recommend the service be performed at least once a year, with a booster treatment used at every oil change.
