    Anyone near Exeter with an ultrasonic cleaner??

    Hey all, is there anyone around here that has one? I'm keen to do my injectors as i'm sure they are contributing to 29mpg on a run where I used to get 35mpg! I only need a cleaner for this purpose so can't really warrant buying one, it would be really good to meet some new people around here anyway as I have just moved to the area Thanks

    Thanks for the replies and offers everyone Sorting out something one evening sounds good, although I have to admit that I don't have a place where we could meet up, i'm currently at my girlfriends parents so can't really have people round to pull cars apart on the drive I'm quite keen on pulsing the injectors while they clean so will be looking into setting up a circuit to achieve that. Bit of homework needed first though. Will it improve the results further?

    Sportquattro, when you say seals do you mean new injector seals?

    Also, sportstractor, i'll have a think about coming upp your way if we can't sort anything out in Exeter (due to the lack of my own place at the moment!) Thanks for the kind offers

    Any ideas where it would be possible in Exeter? Any of you guys work on marsh barton?

    Thanks again, next i'll be asking if anyone has a steam cleaner....

    Interesting, do you think most petrol cars over say 100k would benefit with a clean ? Did you notice (and others) a difference ?

    It makes a big difference, you will be amazed at the amount of crap that comes out of them, mine I did at 105,000 miles and it took 4 sessions in the cleaner before the water remained clear, MPG Imprroved and definately felt smoother running.

    Yeah what sportquattro said,

    I did mine like he described. I found the engine to be a lot more positive afterward, not sure how much of that was down to changing seals, as mine were previously leaking. Such an easy job to do, you may as well do it!

    This could come together well

    So when would be a good time for everyone to meet at either slowcoaches or krytons? I'm really flexible with time so whenever is good for me, I feel guilty for not being able to contribute though! I just bought an eezibleed and a haldex filter spanner if anyone wants to borrow them in return for ultrasonic cleaning or a place to remove my injectors
