JLM Lubricants says its fuel additives are ready to come to your rescue

Diagnosing and fixing technical issues caused by excessive carbon deposits in engines is a never-ending source of frustration for many automotive technicians.
Fortunately, there are powerful tools available to you right now, that can help tackle these issues head-on.
Carbon deposits, also known as carbon build-up, or carbon fouling, are residues that form as a result of incomplete combustion in the engine.
These deposits primarily consist of carbonaceous materials, including unburned hydrocarbons, soot, and other combustion byproducts.
Over time, these deposits can accumulate on various engine components, including intake valves, throttle bodies, fuel injectors, and combustion chambers. 
Excessive carbon deposits can lead to a wide variety of technical problems in engines, including: 
• Reduced engine performance: carbon buildup restricts airflow and fuel delivery, resulting in decreased engine performance. Symptoms may include reduced power output, rough idling, hesitation during acceleration, and overall sluggishness. 
• Increased fuel consumption: carbon deposits hinder fuel atomisation and combustion efficiency, leading to increased fuel consumption. 
• Elevated emissions: incomplete combustion caused by carbon deposits can result in higher emissions of harmful pollutants such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), and nitrogen oxides (NOx). This not only contributes to air pollution but also increases the likelihood of the vehicle failing emissions tests. 
• Engine knocking and pinging: carbon buildup on combustion chamber surfaces can increase the risk of engine knocking and pre-ignition, potentially leading to engine damage if left unaddressed. 

Fuel Additives to the rescue 
JLM Lubricants explains that fuel additives are chemical compounds specifically designed to enhance the performance and cleanliness of engines by addressing issues such as carbon deposits.
These additives contain a variety of active ingredients that work to dissolve and remove existing deposits while also preventing the formation of new ones.
It is important to note that not all fuel additives contain the same type and concentration of active ingredients. JLM Lubricants says this is why it is important to choose a reputable brand that uses industry-leading formulas and high concentration of active ingredients in its products.
JLM Lubricants explains the role of its fuel additives as follows:
• Dissolving existing deposits: JLM fuel additives contain detergents and dispersants that effectively break down and dissolve carbon deposits on engine components. These powerful cleaning agents penetrate the deposits, breaking them apart and allowing them to be carried away by the fuel system.
• Preventing future deposits: in addition to removing existing deposits, JLM fuel additives also help prevent the formation of new ones. Many additives contain inhibitors that coat engine surfaces, forming a protective barrier that prevents carbon buildup from adhering.
• Improving combustion efficiency: some JLM fuel additives contain octane boosters and combustion catalysts that enhance combustion efficiency. By promoting more complete combustion of fuel, these additives help reduce the formation of carbon deposits in the first place.
• Lubricating engine components: certain JLM fuel additives also serve as lubricants, providing additional protection to engine components. By reducing friction and wear, these additives help extend the lifespan of critical engine parts, including piston rings, valves, and cylinder walls.
Excessive carbon deposits can pose significant challenges for car mechanics, impacting engine performance, fuel economy, emissions, and overall reliability.
JLM Lubricants says its fuel additives offer a practical and effective solution for combating these issues.
By leveraging the cleaning, preventative, and performance-enhancing properties of JLM Lubricants fuel additives, JLM Lubricants says professional motor mechanics can restore engines to optimal condition and provide their customers with lasting solutions.
