Diesel car performance -deal with carbon deposit buildup

Have you had a chance to get a high performance driving training? I haven’t but it’s definitely in my bucket list. If you like automobiles, the chances are you would be also interested in performance driving. Often times, I go to a BMW driving center just to watch people getting the training. When I hear roaring sound, I feel my adrenaline pumping furiously. Naturally I got interested in performance driving techniques over the years.

There are a number of ways to improve your car’s performance First off, your car is no longer mechanical devices. Modern cars have very complicated electrical system. So a properly grounded electrical system is vital to the performance of your vehicle. As an example, with poorly grounded electrical system might cause your car’s ignition under performed. Also some claims that voltage stabilizer with grounding cables into the vehicle, the device will be able to provide better torque and help efficient fuel consumption.

To the clear, I am not a technical person at all when it comes to automobiles. But this sounds very reasonable. But I am also a kind of person who doesn’t want to add additional component into the car even those means are proved to make things better.





My obsession with being in love with Mini Cooper led me to find a way to make the performance better without having to add external components into my Mini. So I turned my interests in performance engine oil. Performance oil is expensive but it gave me huge excitement. When I change the engine oil from Mini recommendation basic oil to a performance oil, it totally changed Mini’s performance as if it’s upgrade Mini or something. Simply put, it felt like much smoother with more power. However the problem with this is the effect doesn’t last long. After 5,000 km or so, either I got used to it, or the effect worn out, I couldn’t feel the power anymore.




Then I found that there is another way to increase engine’s performance. Before this, I wasn’t aware of the fact that carbon deposit buildup (in other words carbon sludge) will interfere with engine’s performance and it won’t go away unless you manually clean it regular basis. More shockingly it takes more than half a day to clean carbon deposit in the intake manifold area in the engine. Of course, it’s one time deal, so you have to do it again over some time. The process involves in disassembling the engine or re-assemble it which terrifies me. If it’s in the hands of in-experienced mechanic anything can go wrong in the process.

So I tried “engine protector” additive. It didn’t take long that I figure out that this doesn’t really get rid of carbon deposit. So evidently this didn’t improve car’s performance substantially.

Carbon Deposit (also known as Carbon Sludge)


Luckily, I found a solution. The company I am involved in marketing developed a product called D Clean which disposes of liquid to clean carbon deposit while driving in the intake manifold area. It cleans existing carbon sludge as well as prevent carbon deposit from building up. 

Even better news for me is that it’s like an adaptor. So it won’t change nor interfere with car’s existing system. Installing it would be like just adding a black box into your car.(like an accessory product).

Unfortunately you can't be free from carbon deposit with your BMW!

The major difference between having performance engine oil and having D Clean is that with the former car’s performance won’t last long (at least feeling standpoint) while with the latter, you can feel the car is as good as new (the older car you have, the better you can feel the difference) for months. After a few months, of course, you get used to it but if you are aware, you can feel the difference!
