This is something that Van Stop Bolton offers and is an alternative way of cleaning your car. Using water and electrolysis to produce hydrogen and oxygen, the mixed gas is cooled and filtered into the engine, fuel, air and combustion carbon mixed together. The increased internal oxygen proportion improves combustion, and at the same time, the catalytic properties of hydrogen make it possible for combustion carbon to be gradually broken down to clear internal carbon deposits.

The carbon clean unit runs entirely on water and electricity following the initial set up. This lifts carbon deposits from the engine and ejects them through the exhaust. Using no harsh detergents and taking just half an hour the CC-14 returns your enging to a state of cleanliness close to new. You regain power and performance, increase the MPH and radically cut emissions. Improved exhausts emissions. It also Prolongs engine life, Increases engine performance and Lowers oil consumption.
