deposits? What is that?
Carbon deposits are unburned fuel collecting inside your engine in very hard clumps. These clumps are hard enough to do physical damage to the metal of your engine.

(less than 1.4 years) in good conditions and with good fuel.
left to continue to build up, these deposits can cause a need to
rebuild the engine at the worst, or an internal clean-out at
Either one of which can be very costly in terms of
downtime and money.
deposits tell you something about your
Carbon deposits tell you that your engine is wasting fuel by not burning it all.
This can be caused by many reasons including:
- Dirty air filter
- Weak glow or spark plugs
- Too much fuel entering the engine
- Old fuel injectors spraying liquid fuel rather than misting it
in the fuel
deposits are bad for your engine --
Carbon deposits cause these, and more, problems in an engine:
- Lower compression ratio which causes a drop in power
- Pre-ignition -- the fuel ignites before it should and throws off the running of the engine
- Uneven burning -- carbon deposits will heat up and start the fuel burning in pockets rather than completely
- More wear and tear on your engine as the parts become unbalanced due to the extra weight of the carbon deposits
deposits, are put simply, very costly
Because carbon deposits do so much damage to an engine, running the engine and maintenance costs are greatly increased if they are allow to build up.
With a Engine Ecology device in your vehicle, there is a dramatic drop in carbon deposits as you can see in the photo below of spark plugs removed from an engine that had been running our device for the 10 years before these plugs were removed:
These spark plugs are from a gasoline vehicle with over 220,000 miles (350,000 kilometers.) The time these spark plugs were used inside the vehicle is unknown, but you can see by the rust rings above the metal casing that they are aged, yet they are CLEAN. There are no carbon deposits on even the third cylinder that was burning oil.
owner reported that except for the limp from the third cylinder
at low speeds when cold, the engine was running very strong.
Carbon deposits can be avoided!
Carbon deposits can be a thing of the past with an Engine Ecology device installed in you engine. Order one today!
