Detox Your Car With Caltex’s New Techron Concentrate Plus (TCP) Fuel System Cleaner

| |
Hi Huneybees,

These days it's all about detoxing, giving your body a break and release all the toxins. Well, it goes the same for our cars!

Everyday we travel in our cars, making them work for us and with the high COE rate here, it can be tough getting a new car. So, you would want to keep your car "healthy", giving it the timely detox to keep the fuel system sensors clean from sulfuric buildup, hindering the car's performance.

Well, with Caltex’s new Techron Concentrate Plus (TCP) fuel system cleaner, you can achieve that! 

The Caltex’s patented Techron technology already exists in their petrol. It is a scientifically proven formula with a unique ingredient - polyetheramine to clean vehicle engines running on petrol, ensuring optimal performance for motorists. But now with TCP, you can enjoy the same advantages, even if you use other brands of petrol.

All you have to do is to simply add a bottle of TCP into your vehicle’s empty tank before the next fill up. (Note: This is only for the petrol vehicles) In just one tankful, it cleans engine deposits and protects the entire fuel system, restores lost power and performance, and helps reduce emissions while maximizing fuel economy. With repeated use, TCP is also able to clean and protect fuel system sensors from sulfuric buildup, which can cause faulty fuel gauge readings over time.

Caltex had conducted a boroscope test in Thailand in 2013, examining the effectiveness of TCP in the Southeast Asian market. The test had revealed the harmful effects that lower quality petrol have on motor engines, while highlighting the cleaning proposition of Caltex’s Techron Technology as the ideal solution for motorists. The boroscope test utilized a specially designed camera to examine the interior of a vehicle’s fuel system to inspect the cleanliness of critical engine parts.

Using a Karl Storz Endoscope (boroscope), Chevron engineers took photos of intake valves and ports (via fuel injector hole) and rated them using a Co-operative Research Council (CRC) Intake Valve Deposit (IVD) rating system, where a score out of 10 was assigned, with 10 denoting a perfectly clean valve. Photos were also taken of piston tops (via spark plug hole) to visually assess combustion chamber deposits (CCDs).

Techron has been proven to be efficient at keeping intake valves cleaner based on the boroscope tests conducted on a total of 232 valves from 30 vehicles tested in Thailand. Tests conducted on four 2008 Japanese sedans, had revealed an average score of 8.1 out of 10 prior to using TCP. After using TCP, these four cars achieved an average score of 9.9 out of 10. Similar results on other models also revealed that vehicles using TCP had performed very well in keeping fuel systems clean, proving the product’s effectiveness in offering a deep-clean solution in just one tankful.

So, why not give your precious cars the much needed "cleanse" and let it go the extra mile for you? You can find the Caltex Techron Concentrate Plus (TCP) fuel system cleaner at all 27 Caltex petrol stations and as part of its promotional launch, TCP will be available at $17.50 from now until 30 June 2014
