Hi. Has anyone had any experience of using a fuel additive called Dipetane. It is supposed to burn off any combustion chamber deposits ie; carbon.

If you dismantle the lambdasond and catalyst you can do the same thing but 100% better effect whit just water mist from an
pressurised flower-water spray bottle (1-2l) in a mist directly in to the throttle an the engine revving about 3000rpms..

Hi Johan.C. How long do you have to spray the water mist into the air intake? Can you spray into the air intake tube or must it be straight into the carburettor?

Depends on what engine we talking about?

When i seen this bin don the last time it was on a
E230 1984 model, and thy used 2l in one set, and you should have a intense "mist" all the time, ABSOLUTLEY no water beam!
It took about 10min for the 2l was gone.

It was like day and night how the engine preformed afterwards.

I forgot to wright this in the first post, the engine must be in working temperature when this is done (+80c) so, take the car for
a 15min ride before "cleaning".

Thread revival alert!
I was going to write up a new thread but did a search for Dipetane and saw that there was one already, even if quite old.

I started using this last month and it has made a noticeable difference to fuel consumption, possibly over 10%. When my current supply runs out I'll try again without it for a while to see if the fuel consumption reverts to what it was before.

Has anyone else tried it (in the intervening six years since this thread was created)?

Best Regards,
ConorD
