Carbon deposits in your car's engine leads to poor performance. Engines with excessive carbon deposits waste gas and are not effective at passing smog through the system. There are a handful of products that help dissolve and remove carbon deposits from your car's engine, which leads to better performance and can ultimately save you money in gas and repairs. Before using any of these products, contact a professional mechanic to make sure it'll be safe and effective for your particular vehicle.
