FAQs

1IS CLEANDRIVE SAFE FOR MY VEHICLE?
Yes. CleanDrive has been extensively tested and is safe for use in diesel, petrol and hybrid engines.
2HOW HAS CLEANDRIVE BEEN TESTED?
CleanDrive has been tested by the University of Leicester on a test protocol adapted from the New European Drive Cycle (NEDC) on a bench dynamometer under controlled laboratory conditions. It has also undergone public trials. In all tests, it has been shown to improve fuel efficiency, cut costs and reduce harmful emissions.
3HOW CAN CLEANDRIVE BENEFIT VEHICLES, CARS, TRUCKS AND BUSES?
CleanDrive provides significant benefits to all kinds of vehicles and engines, including hybrid engines. This is because it cleans the fuel pump, the connecting pipeline, the common rail, the injectors, Diesel Particulate Filter, the Catalytic converter and lubricates the engine wall. The clean fuel system delivers a more regular better atomized fuel spray, improving the combustion process and engine fuel efficiency. Engines cleaned by CleanDrive have a proven, measurable improvement in their performance and a boost in fuel efficiency.
4HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE CLEANDRIVE?
You only need to add CleanDrive to your fuel tank once every three months (one 16.7 fluid ounce bottle). However, if your vehicle does a lot of stops and starts or minimal motorway miles, you may benefit from adding it every 60 days.
5HOW CAN I MAXIMISE THE RESULTS OF CLEANDRIVE?
Just follow these simple instructions: 1. Check you have ¼ of a tank of fuel in your tank (3-4 gallons) 2. Drive for a few miles to allow your vehicle to reach optimal temperature before adding CleanDrive 3. Add the entire contents of bottle into the fuel tank, drive normally for about 6 miles 4. Enjoy more fuel efficient and cost effective driving and a lower impact on the environment.
6WE HAVE MUCH CLEANER FUELS TODAY. WHY SHOULD I WANT TO USE AN ADDITIVE?
By comparison, fuels today are much cleaner than fuels sold about 15-20 years ago. However, today’s fuels are less stable because they are produced through cracking process versus the less efficient “straight run” process used years ago. As a result, today’s fuels deteriorate at much faster Rates- resulting in excessive carbon build-up in your engine.
7IS IT COST EFFECTIVE TO USE CLEANDRIVE?
Because the use of CleanDrive results in more efficient combustion, fuel economy is greatly improved. The fuel savings more than pays for the cost of treatment. In the long-term, the capability of CleanDrive to prevent carbon deposits actually extends the life of a engine. – Because it is the hard carbon which accelerates abrasion and wear.
8ARE ALL FUELS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME?
No, even when processed by the same refiner, fuel quality can vary considerably day-to-day depending on the crude oil feedstock used and the processing controls implemented at the refinery.
9I HAVE ABOUT 100,000 MILES ON MY ENGINE. IS IT TOO LATE TO START USING CLEAN DRIVE TO PREVENT WEAR?
No, CleanDrive can add years to “middle-aged” engines by stopping excessive wear and carbon build-up.
10I HAVE BEEN USING CLEANDRIVE FOR MANY MONTHS WITH GOOD RESULTS. HOWEVER, THIS SUMMER CLEANDRIVE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE GIVING ME THE FUEL ECONOMY I USUALLY GET?
There could be two reasons why you are not achieving the results to their optimum levels : 1.Gasoline expands in hotter weather and fuel economy drops.Without CleanDrive you can expect an even greater fuel economy loss. 2. Engines work harder in the summer, operating under higher heat levels whilst providing horsepower to run air conditioning units. CleanDrive helps improve fuel combustion and efficiency when your engine needs it most.
