    I was at HH last week getting my car MOT's and saw a few petrol cars being treated to this stuff, I enquired more about this and was advised this cleaner is approved by Honda. Its approved by Honda I have to try this out .

    I have been using BG44k on my wives car for some years now , just before a major service I dropped a can of this cleaner the results were good and the car felt good. However BG44K has change it formulation to to a Kerosene based cleaner. Anyone who know Kerosene is bad for piston bores and piston rings, however the concentration is so low the damage will be minimal but with repeated use it will make an affect.

    So why use a Kerosene based cleaner at all? when Tunap 973 is free from it and the best thing it is half the price of BG44K. Tunap also have a additive\cleaner which is approved for all DPF equipped vehicles.

    I have popped this both into my tourer and will remove the throttle bodies to reveal their effectiveness.

    If anyone is interested in buying this cleaner can contact HH they have a special offer at the moment for AOC members.

    Well the German manufacturer will approve it as its TÜV Approved :Lipsrsealed:

    Honda will approve this over here as it local vendor saves the carting of an approved Asian vendor which will be higher due to the yen and shipping! So to answer your question yes I have been using it on my 2.0 Tourer never had to use it on the 2.4 yet.

    Never heard of catclean before this just had to look it up , I can't say how aggressive catclean is where tunap is a fuel cleaner read the article at the bottom is suggests its operating parameters.

    Managed to get two bottles for a tenner from my local Vauxhall dealer - they said the offer is national.

    Anyway so far I'm delighted with the results produced. With half a tank usage I have noticed that the car comfortably idles at over 1k whereas before it would keep on dipping below it and threat to stall when in neutral. Also I think the car is more willing to rev up but that could just be my imagination so I'll keep that as a maybe.

    That is good to know.. :Thumbup: I was pleasant surprised with them too. Its advisable to change the oil after this treatment well the manufacture won't state it but that curd will go into the engine oil.

    So best fill up the tank bung a the treatment and when the fuel tank is really finished change the oil. so time your oil changes accordingly.

    Ah I didn't think about that - next service is at August or December this year so I will use the second bottle right before then, hopefully all the gunk cleaned by this bottle doesn't harm the engine.

    The effects wore off around a month after I used a can. The car is back to its nearly stalling, hesitant self - other than that it drives like a dream. Methinks the EGR needs to be cleaned.

    There is a EGR clean up guide for the 6th Generation bud just search for it, the new search is a million times better than the older VB search which was hit and miss.

    You will get guaranteed search results now:Grin:
