    And while you're doing the 50/50 you should also I've done possibly a concentrate antifreeze to see what that would do and maybe possibly add a little bit to the oil to see if that changed anything

    You should make a higher pitch wind blade to simulate load instead of engine brake

    I’d like to see a similar test with a water/methanol mix. Some people do that for performance reasons but I’m curious about the cleaning effects.

    This stuff is an awesome cleaner. Carbon, grease, oil. As good as it works, you don't want to use it in a parts cleaner tank with a pump. Wreaks havoc with the pump. At least, if it's not diluted. Also, if you use to on a vehicle with polished metal, and drips on an aluminum fuel tank, you'll need to polish it out again.

    At least you convert a air cool engine to a water-cooled engine that works don't it?

    Hi- I used to have a 1988 Honda CRX si- when it was getting upwards of 100k miles- I would removed the 4 spark plugs when the were hot- and drop then in to a clear cup of Super Clean- and just watch the carbon deposits lift away- like that Calgon commercial- "calgon take me away...." remember that?!

    Wouldn't Transmission fluid work with all that detergent or cleaners in it? If it does work I'm going to use some in my Chevy with the cylinder deactivation to try and make sure it keeps working over 200,000 miles. I really enjoy your videos , the presentation seems to be like real life vs. how staged the shows are on tv these days.

    Water works just as good There is a steam explosion that blasts away the carbon with water

    I have used berryman B12 to clean up sludge I poured half of that into my engine ran it for no more than 5 minutes by the time it was done my engine look like a brand new motor the only downside to that was I had to replace all my gaskets because it dissolve my gaskets as well so I tore apart the engine and replaced all the gaskets but it look like a new motor and when I got done putting it back together ran like a champ I tried that on a 69 Chevy truck that I put a 350 engine in it now I would not recommend this on an aluminum block like as an example Honda's Toyotas and things like that because they can lock up when it dries up the oil but I can a hundred percent sure you I could take the engine apart and dip it in that solution with a ultrasonic cleaner and it would get the engine looking like new 😉

    Have you tried the homemade hydrogen kit ? For a term I've heard. They say it steam cleans the engine as well and better mpg.

    Most antifreeze is 50% water. So, you are steam cleaning your engine!

    Brake fluid mixed with water use to be a good idea.
