What is a Fuel System Cleaning and Why do You Need it?

Blog - Fuel CleaningIs your vehicle running sluggishly or lacking acceleration? It might be time for a fuel system cleaning.

When it comes to fuel, it’s all about flow! Every time you press the gas pedal, you control how much fuel and air goes into the engine. The pedal tells the throttle valve how much air to let in and the computer tells the fuel system how much fuel to deliver. These calculated amounts of air and fuel are typically mixed together before being sucked into the combustion chamber of an engine cylinder. There, the spark plug ignites the mixture, producing the controlled burn that powers the vehicle.

Over time, deposits can form in critical areas of the fuel system. A clogged fuel system or fuel filter can result in reduced fuel economy and loss of power. Periodic Fuel System Cleaning can help maintain optimal engine performance.
