Have you noticed that you’re vehicle is not getting the same gas mileage as it was when your vehicle was new?
If not it could be because over time carbon deposits build up on your valves, injectors, and intake runners. The buildup of carbon deposits can cause your vehicle to lose 2 to 4 miles per gallon, minimizing fuel efficiency.
Some noticeable side effects of carbon buildup are:
- Difficulty during vehicle start up or hesitation
- Loss of power
- Knocking or pinging sounds
- Rough idle
Is there a simple way to reduce or remove carbon buildup and increase fuel efficiency?
- Yes, this can be done by a fuel induction service which, cleans off carbon deposits. The benefits of the service is your vehicle will have an increase in horsepower, will run quieter, have a smoother start and idle, reduced emissions, and better fuel efficiency.
How often should I have a fuel induction service done?
- A fuel induction service is recommended about every 30,000 miles.
How much does a fuel induction service cost?
- The average cost for the service is $120.00.
Overall if your vehicle is losing 2 to 4 miles per gallon, you could be wasting $385.00 a year on gas. The amount is based off the average of 11,000 miles per year, and 22.4 miles per gallon. Doing the cost analysis spending the $120.00 for the fuel induction service will save you on average $265.00 a year, not too shabby.
