MOT Failure?? Car stalling at traffic lights?? Rough running?? This is the only product that works a treat at cleaning icv and ecr valves that cause idle problems on most modern petrol and diesel engines. Ordered on Sat arrived yesterday. Used it many times before but when I went to get a bottle from auto accessory shop last week it was £16-50! This is a good price. Read the instructions carefully, put in tank when its got only 50 miles or so to go and then do 15 miles in vehicle.
Liverpool, UK – System Products announced today that NAC MG, an independent laboratory and member of the British Testing Advisory Group (BTCA), accredited by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) and Vehicle and Operating Services Agency (VOSA), has concluded testing of Cataclean in petrol and diesel vehicles. The data collected from the independent laboratory testing shows overall reductions in petrol emissions of 64% and a reduction in diesel emissions of 45%.

System Products’ North American distribution arm, Cataclean Americas, recently concluded a 100-day emissions and fuel efficiency test for the State of New York, County of Erie.

According to Hugh Collins, Director, “the tests were conducted by emissions experts and engineers using a sophisticated Montana 1 emissions testing system, and closely monitored by fleet managers from multiple state agencies.” The net results after three months of Cataclean use was an overall reduction in petrol and diesel emissions of more than 40% and an increase in fuel efficiency of 12.8%.

According to Hugh Collins and Ross Baigent of System Products UK, the decision to subject Cataclean to such stringent testing conditions was done in an effort to not merely meet but to actually exceed strict regulatory guidelines and thus to substantiate Cataclean’s claims. “This further supports the nearly 70 field emissions tests conducted over the past three years which have shown significant reduction in harmful emissions,” said Collins. According to Baigent, System Products and Cataclean have moved past anecdotal claims regarding the Cataclean product, and achieved expert, independent testing with substantiated results.
Independently tested many times, this is a great product, and is worth a try before you get the garage to replace expensive parts
"Does it work?
In a word, Yes!
Cataclean does exactly what it says on the bottle
and on that basis, we are happy to recommend its use."

Doesn't work … Doesn't work http://www.asa.org.uk/Rulings/Adjudications/2006/7/Best-Direct/TF_ADJ_41571.aspx



Worked for me twice at making a Suzuki Grand Vitara and Vauxhall Insignia that had stalling issues when slowing down at traffic lights. Car Mechanics is quite a respectable magazine so I'm sure they wouldnt endorse a product if it was rubbish??

I was skeptical about this product which I used for the first time 5 years ago but it worked for me so subsequently I've used it many times and recommended it to others that have all reported back favorably. For a tenner its could save someone a large sum of money in getting there vehicle running smoothly again!


Been using this for years and does what it says on the tin.

One example friend took his Ford Escort 1300cc ( a few years ago) for test and failed on emissions took away and told him to try this so he "borrowed" one and took straight back for test an hour later and passed.

ps I am not a mechanic just a DIY'er and not in motor trade.

that doesn't even make sense, surely it would take some time to do what it was "supposed" to do. sometimes cats hold unburnt fuel which fails the emissions, give the car a good thrash & it burns them off, happened to me after i had a lambda sensor replaced. the difference between a pass & a fail can come down to a small difference, personally i'd rather have a car that has good emmisions all the time

Just use Shell V-Power: better and more efficient solution

30seconds of Googling and yet another "wonder product" crashes and burns.

Vpower, all the way as I've seen physical proof of the improvements in valve cleanliness.

UpheldThe expert considered that using a vehicle with a known and apparently unquantified problem was bad practice. The results showed that Cataclean had no beneficial effect on emissions. The expert noted the evidence did not repeat the decreases in emissions that were demonstrated in the infomercial. We considered that the claims were misleading.5. UpheldThe expert advised that catalyst efficiency was established by analysing the exhaust gases entering and exiting the catalyst. He noted the submitted tests did not use that method. The expert advised that the product was extremely unlikely to survive the combustion process and reach the exhaust catalyst. We considered that the claim was misleading.Action We concluded that the infomercial breached rules 5.1 (Misleading advertising), 5.2.1 (Evidence), 5.4.4 (Testimonials) and 5.2.6 (Environmental claims) of the CAP (Broadcast) TV Advertising Standards Code and it must not be advertised again without adequate substantiation for each claim it made.
