CRD Fuel ENHANCER Case Studies from CEM, Australia:
Ford 2.4L CRD engine. At around 50,000km the engine would occasionally produce a rattly pinging noise under acceleration from cold, but would disappear after a km or two. The rattle increased slightly, but at around 70,000km a severe and harsh rattle emerged. It became extreme within 3 days and sounded like the engine was in its death throws. CRD Fuel Enhancer was added to the diesel fuel, the rattle decreased immediately and disappeared within 100kms. It is believed an injector was sticking open allowing excess fuel to cause severe detonation. Damage was avoided, and at 120,000km (70,000km after the first rattle) the engine is still going well.
2012 Colorado 4×4 dual cab gets petrol in the diesel!
This customer was using CRD Fuel Enhancer in the diesel of his Colorado. He was running low on fuel so put $20 in till he got to his usual servo to fill up. It ran a bit rough after a while & he thought he might have got some water in the fuel, so checked the filter drain & all clean. He put in some more CRD Fuel Enhancer as extra lubrication & protection against rust. It seemed “OK”ish at highway speed so drove the 80km home. But into local traffic it struggled to get any revs above idle!
So next morning it was tray topped to the Holden dealer, who soon reported that there was petrol in the diesel and that Colorado fuel pumps don’t handle petrol or water and it will need to be replaced!
But when the job was complete, there was some good news .. they couldn’t fault the pump or injectors. The system had all been cleaned out and was ready to pick up!
Knight’s Toyota, Leongatha (VIC)
Hi Brid, i have attached the dyno sheet of the Hilux you have mentioned in the add. This dyno run was done after the vehicle had done a run to Cape York with your CRD additive. Before it had left for Cape York all injector feedback values were off the scale, all reading –5 to +5 (these should be around –1 to +1 to be in spec). It was rattling, shaking and knocking alot. We sent the customer on his way with your product and trust of it to take the vehicle to Cape York without causing any damage.
Once the vehicle returned, these feedbacks on all injectors were around –0.5 to +0.8. Customer couldn’t believe the results. Whilst here for the service, we put the vehicle on the dyno before and after, after using your FOC (DeSLUDGE) and AW10 (SupaSLIP) you can see the broad increase in torque and power right through the rev range. This vehicle was still using your CRD at the time it was on the dyno. From experience, with brand new Hilux’s we have put on the dyno for comparison, these vehicles are only making 70 to 85 RWKW. So the results of your product on a car that has done 160,000km is absolutely outstanding (105.4RWKW, we have never seen a stock Hilux make this much power!). I look forward to using your product on more vehicles in the future and keeping you updated with dyno results to prove your products. Thankyou
Tristan Wilson, KNIGHTS TOYOTA (Leongatha VIC)
Komatsu PC15-2 excavator .. Toughest test yet for CRD Fuel Enhancer!
I have a worn out, old excavator that I bought for at-home landscaping. It might get used 1 or 2 times a year. Recently I did a small job and just before I parked it up the revs were fading. I thought I ran it out of fuel. So 3 weeks later I thought I should refuel it and bleed the system. But then I noticed the fuel filter was full of water. It was through the fuel pump and injector .. it didn’t run out of fuel at all.
It hadn’t been refuelled for about 4 years, which had FTC Decarbonizer and Cleanpower in it, but it had built condensation. T he pump pistons seemed to be seizing. I could only get a bit of water and rusty stain out in dribbles. My only change of recovering it to running state was to free up the pump, so I put CRD in the fuel tank and a strong hit in the fuel filter. I could only bleed a small amount through the pump, so I did a bit each day, by cranking it over a few times, then leaving it to soak over night. After a week of this, I reconnected the fuel lines and she fired up and sounds just as good as before.
D4D Hilux Ute
Paul Burgess purchased CRD Fuel Enhancer for his Hilux (70,000km) for preventative reasons, as he did not have any issues with it. He tows a camper trailer and will normally sit on 100kph where possible. He recorded these fuel consumption figures while towing.
Tank before using CRD…15.3L/100k
1St Tank with CRD…14.2L/100k
Paul consider both to be similar driving conditions, and didn’t expect to see such an improvement of this size.
2005 R51 Nissan Pathfinder 2.5 litre Turbo Diesel
Hi Guys, I have been using your products since discovering them in 4WD Action Magazine a couple of months ago. I drive loaded with a steel roof rack, bull bar, winch, drawers, fridge, etc, etc. It has 235,000 km on the clock and sees its fair share of bush work.
I’ve always had a rattle in the morning and I know it’s a sticky injector. I’ve poured all sorts of crap into that fuel tank, from “injector cleaner”, to 2 stroke oil, with no change. I tried your CRD Fuel Enhancer, thinking, “here goes, more money down the drain.” Well, wasn’t I amazed when the Pathy started running quieter, smoother and more economically, from about 150 km from the first dose. I even gave some to my mate across the road to try in his very rattly 2.8 ltr GU Patrol. We both agree, both engines are quieter and smoother.
Next, I tried the (FTC) Decarboniser. I’m still within the first 20 hours, but already I have noticed a difference in smoke output and general performance.
Yesterday is where I became disappointed. I got some of your (DeSLUDGE) Flushing OIl Concentrate and following the instructions to the letter, changed my oil. Today, I drove the usual 115 km to work, from Melton to Beaufort. Usually within this time, my oil would be the usual thick black. When I got to work, I thought I’d check the oil, feeling sure it would be black as usual. I pulled out the dipstick, and sure enough, I nearly had a heart attack. The dipstick had no oil on it!! I then had another look. I realised the dipstick had the correct amount of Penrite’s finest on it, but it was so clean I couldn’t see it.
Why am I disappointed? For years, I’ve tried different brands of fuel and oil treatments that claim to do magical things, but never live up to the promise. could probably buy a new car with the money I’ve wasted. Finally, a product that does exactly what it claims to do. Each and every one of your products that I have tried so far has done exactly what it says it will do. Thank you for bringing these products to us. I will certainly do my best to spread the word.
Thanks Guys, Sean Murphy.

Datsun SD25 Diesel ..
For 4 years, Allan Dickson had been unable to solve an overheating problem. Despite flushing the cooling system and fitting a larger radiator, it would always boil up the Toowoomba Range. After using FOC, it gets up the range at 70 kph (instead of 40-50 kph) without overheating.
Editors note .. One of the functions of oil is to cool and if flow is restricted, overheating results.
Holden VK Commodore ..
Ray Borg writes .. “Best engine flush in the world!” The first bottle worked wonders on the sludged up old VK Commodore, which had lost all oil pressure. It removed 6 litres of sludge. Everyone’s car I’ve used it on calls it “the magic potion”. Now the word is spreading, so could you please send me two more bottles? I can’t thank you and C.E.M. enough for your assistance and valued advice. The product is 100% true to its name!
Kenworth/Detroit Diesel Series 60 (475HP)..
Like many modern truck diesels, these are prone to sludging up badly. FOC was run in the oil for 40 minutes before draining. From that point, the power and economy improvement was most noticeable. Fitted with oil centrifuges, about 1 cm depth of dirt would be collected at each service period. However, after the flush, there was no centrifuge dirt at all, indicating less contaminant blowby.
Mazda T4100 ..
Best Practice Constructions run two of them. After flushing the engines with FOC, the mechanic was amazed at the amount of rubbish that came out .. and even more amazed at the change in performance. “We’re getting a lot of positive feedback from our crews and so far it’s been a cost effective solution.”
Nissan Navara ..
This diesel was so gutless, it would be down to 2nd gear on the range, with a cloud of smoke behind it .. and it wouldn’t hold 5th gear on the flat. After using FOC and Cleanpower*, it gets up the range in 4th gear (no smoke) and accelerates in 5th gear on the flat. Les says, “I was close to putting a match to it, but now it really is such a pleasant thing to drive again!”
* Editors note .. FTC combustion catalyst is a suitable alternative in NZ
Nissan GU Turbo Patrol ..
Paul Mitchell writes .. “Just thought I would drop you an email. I bought your FOC in September. I have a Nissan GU Turbo diesel Patrol which has travelled 228000 klm. It has had regular oil changes every 5000 klm. Yet the oil was always thick and ‘goey’, even after an oil change. I have now used your product twice, the first time the oil was a little cleaner and not as thick. I did another oil change after about 2000klm. This has really cleaned out the dirty oil. It is now so clean I cannot even see it on the dip stick. Well done on a product that really works. I am sure my turbo is really appreciating the new clean oil.”
Nissan Patrol 4.2 Turbo Diesel ..
At 190,000km, it had a rear main oil seal leak and heavily sooted oil when changed. After flushing with FOC the oil leak stopped. (The problem was sump pressure from fouled piston rings.) “I now flush every second oil change and use Cleanpower* every tankful. As a mechanic, I was sceptical, but am amazed at the results and now a totally dedicated user.”

Toyota Landcruiser ..
Landcruiser 1994 Troopy diesel. “After using FOC and Cleanpower* fuel treatment, the Troopy pulls an extra 200-300RPMs on my test hill” says Rob Leighton.

FTC reports from CEM Australia ..
Alphabetical by engine name ..
BMW TD. Bertram 28ft Sportsfisher with twin BMW turbo diesels. “Each time I started the engines, the marina would be absolutely engulfed by smoke for 5-10 minutes, before it would settle down. The port engine was always difficult to start. On the purchase survey, I was advised that it might need a rebuild .. at only 1500hrs!”
“After one day on FTC decarbonizer, the engines started straight away with hardly any smoke at all. I couldn’t believe the improvement. I must admit, I was sceptical at first, but now I’ll be recommending it to everybody.”
Caterpillar Main Engines (cargo ship). At 19,000 hrs, the owners wished to postpone rebuilding the engines by 3 months. FTC decarbonizer was supplied, along with our Flushing Oil Concentrate (called DeSLUDGE in NZ) and AW10 antiwear (called supaSLIP in NZ) to decarbonize and de-stress the engines. From that point until a total of 25,000 hrs, the engines performed much better, with less oil consumption, less smoke and smoother running. They were only then changed out at the insurer’s request.
Caterpillar D10 dozer was left idling for 3 days after the operator became sick. This would be almost guaranteed to glaze up any engine, however this mining fleet was using the FTC decarboniser .. and there were no adverse effects at all!
Caterpillar D348 Powered Mining Fleet. This fleet of coal haulers would drop exhaust valves at intervals of 3000 to 4000 hours, causing extensive damage and considerable downtime costs. The cause was excessive carbon fouling on the valve stems and head, which caused fatigue as it rubbed in the guides, then failure. FTC decarbonizer was introduced to eliminate all hard carbon build up from combustion and exhaust spaces and the problem then ceased.
Detroit 6V92 Diesel. A Rigid Tip Truck with 6V92 Detroit Diesel. (K. Wright NSW). The truck does all on site work and had coked up badly from it. As a result, fuel consumption was down to 1.69km/L. Power and economy was restored over the next 3 tanks of treated fuel .. 1.96km/L, then 2.12km/L and then 2.45km/L. Other trucks on site used to pass me, but now I leave them for dead!
Detroit 8V53 Diesels. The owner of a 53ft boat was faced with a $40,000 cost to rebuild his twin 8V53 Detroit Diesels. At only 5000hrs, they smoked so badly, you could not see behind the boat. After using FTC Decarbonizer, the massive amounts of blue smoke had disappeared! The engine idles much better with noticeably more power. They’d gained 200 RPM at full throttle. An investment of only $190 for a saving of $40,000…without even touching a spanner!
Detroit 8V71. Site tipper work. Excessive idling and cool operating temperature caused power loss and blowby. FTC decarbonizer made a marked difference to increase power and fuel economy. It also stopped the blowby. (George, Bay City Earthworks)
Detroit 8V71. A truck with 8V71 Detroit 2 stroke diesel. (D. Riseley VIC). The engine was so carboned up, that I could see sparks being thrown out of the exhaust at night. It couldn’t pull full revs. After a few tanks with FTC decarbonizer, it really cleaned up, the sparks stopped and I had full rev power again.
Dronin diesel (boat). An old engine. The injectors were removed, tested OK, but had massive carbon deposits. FTC was used and the injectors removed after 20hrs on FTC. They were totally carbon free.
Mack 454 .. Truck and Trailer doing local tipper work. Owner reports engine runs better and sounds crisper. Fuel consumption improved from 1.7km/L to 1.9km/L (11.7%). Also reports better economy in 5L Commodore V8.
Mitsubishi FP 418 Removal Truck. (AAA Interstate Removals). We first purchased FTC decarbonizer after suffering suspected glazing, due to light freight and southern artic conditions. The engine had been fully rebuilt, but was down on power and billowed white smoke. Within six hours of using FTC, there was no white smoke and power improved. On top of that, we are saving $1000 on diesel per 5L of FTC decarbonizer.
Perkins 6.354 International Truck. A concrete pumping truck, it worked short runs only. It was hard to start and suffered white smoke cold & power loss. After 1 day on FTC, it starts well and cleanly with much better power.
Rio Tinto. One Rio Tinto owned coal mine using FTC decarbonizer shifted 12.8% more material, yet increased its fuel usage by only 3.4% .. a fuel saving of about 9%!

This product removed within minutes, the yellowing on the cream coloured gelcoat on my yacht hull. The hull now looks like new. Peter Worsley, Tracker owner.
My dacron sails had several ugly rust stains, all of which were safely removed by Neptune remover. It removed the yellow stains and brightened up my yacht white gelcoat hull and decks too. Carol Sefonte, Reactor owner.
As I stood and watched, the rust stains disappeared on a white painted concrete block house, where the rust was coming from a leaking guttering. John Woodham, home owner.
The hard water white stains on our shower glass door washed off easily after applying Neptune Rust Stain Remover. Truly amazing result. Matt Woodham, landscaping contractor.
SupaSLIP reports from New Zealand .. For product info on SupaSLIP please click here ..
Mazda Astina GT 1.8L, 1990 with 115,000km. After breaking a cooling water pump belt, this vehicle was driven at up to 80kph for more than 30 minutes over hilly winding roads. I was amazed that the engine did not seize. Apart from the broken belt, I could find nothing wrong and it still runs normally. I believe that without SupaSLIP in the engine oil, the engine would have been a wreck. Paul Reilly, motor mechanic.
Mitsubishi Magna 2L, 1990 with 178,500km. The power steering was noticeably jerky and the Mitzi agents recommended replacement of the steering rack assembly. A rather expensive operation, so I had SupaSLIP added to the power steering fluid .. problem solved and still OK after 230,000km. Raelee Anderson, businesswoman, AKL.
SupaSLIP reports from CEM Australia ..
For the benefits of SupaSLIP, please click here .. (SupaSLIP is sold at 1/4 concentration as AW10 in Australia)
(Riseley’s Bulk Haulage). Powered by Series 60 Detroit with 18 speed Roadranger and Eaton diffs. Use of AW10 resulted in smoother gear shifts esp when cold. No click on fast changes. A slight engine rattle has also disappeared. Temperature reductions going up the Toowoomba range were 25F for the gearbox, 15F front diff and 20F rear diff!! Owner Phil Riseley was so impressed, he had to ring us at the top of the range!
Pajero 2004 NP 3.2 DiD Auto.
G`day Brid. Whilst towing my 1500kg caravan I noticed that under load the transmission tunnel was becoming extremely hot.
At 45,000km, I added a dose of AW10 at the rate of 1% to the auto transmission. Problem solved. I have now been using AW10 in my auto transmission for 45000km with no problems whatsoever. No more excessive heat and changes appear to be smoother. It had all it`s oils and fluids changed again at the 90,000 km service and AW10 was again added to the AUTO TRANSMISSION. AW10 has been used in the diffs, transfer case, engine and power steering since new.
Cheers, John Tasker.
Caterpillar Grader was running low oil pressure in the transmission. AW10 restored full oil pressure, by providing a massive boost to the oil’s load carrying ability. This reduced the frictional heat generated, so the oil didn’t thin out as much. Normal oil pressure was restored and wear rates reduced.
Roadranger gearbox ..
13 Speed Roadranger Overdrive Gearbox. Marr’s Haulage run 5 road trains and tried AW10 instead of a $3000 repair job in one gearbox that had become very notchy. Gear shifting and operation immediately became smooth. Four (4) years later and the gearbox is still in service. Use of AW10 in one of their engines resulted in a noticeable increase in oil pressure.
Roadranger Gearbox ..
Chris – Holiday Enter P/L writes .. This truck had a noisy gearbox and gear shifting was difficult. It had a roll over bearing type noise and was really due for a rebuild. He used AW10 in 2001. The noise disappeared in about 150km. It is still going well in 2006 and he’s now heading for 5 years grace from a rebuild!
Volvo truck ..
Peter Flay. Volvo Truck. AW10 made the engine quieter and more powerful. According to Peter, “It seemed like there was no noise, just raw power!”
Gearboxes in general. AW10 takes the notchiness out of gear shifts, making changing a delight. Many truck gearboxes rattle at idle in neutral (eg Roadrangers, Volvos, Mitsubishis, etc). AW10 stops the rattle! CEM, Australia
Two stroke engines. Outboards, chainsaws, brush cutters, mowers, bikes, go-carts, etc can get a large power increase as AW10 provides a huge load carrying benefit to reduce the frictional power losses of two stroke engines. CEM, Australia
