MOT EMMISSIONS- FAILED AGAIN!


Shine Window Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else get the same problem?

 

Everytime I go for the dreaded MOT Test, I get problems getting my emmisions down to an acceptable level.

 

This is despite being prepared and adding the necessary fuel additive and giving it a good blast up the motorway.(yeah that was me with all the black smoke pouring out the back!).

 

Doing start/stop journeys all the time seriously clogs up your motor!

Put some good quality semi synthetic 2 stroke oil in your fuel every tank full, 100ml should be enough based on a 50l tank. Mine has had this since I got it and flew through the emissions test after and italian tune up on the way, it's currently on 130000 miles too.

Put some v power stuff in your car rather then cheap supermarket stuff....might not makr car/van go quicker but after two or three fills clears engine!(took more on my car but runs better/quicker now then two years ago when I got it...

put 20% clean veg oil in your tanks works a treat i drive a 21 year old estima td as a family car ( japanese import) works every time

 

thats just before the mot dont do it all the time as it will clog fuel filter

A mate of mine did that just smelt like chippy lol but never had issues but needed special filters fitting though.

 

Apart from that was great.

 

it does need special filters if you plan on running it all the time but as a one off with the 20% mix its fine

as an ex mechanic, ive always give them a full service just before mot time but i also block the egr off on most of my wagons and i throw the forte stuff in as we used to put it in all the peugeots when i worked at a dealer but occasionally a bottle went into my tool box lol, ive also used the two stroke oil in a transit i had, seemed to make the engine quiet down abit and they say it does help the injectors work a little bit and clean them out.

the v power stuff has been proven that it does help clean the enigne out after a few tank fulls but im too cheap to buy it.
