I have used this stuff to de-carbon entire engine, fuel system, I recommend it 100% got the power back and with de-sludge engine, then adding the AW10 to fresh oil made the engine, gearboxes, transfercase, and both diffs too. I couldn't, believe the difference. FTC is the decarbon stuff u just add the prescribed amount into your fuel tank. It clean out from tank to exhaust tip by chemically desolving all carbon, just drive it normally. Also power clean will Lube Injector pump and injectors. These product were developed for the mining industry for both high altitude and underground mining. Reduces emission and save fuel. Cheers Ruu
