    I've not used it.

    Depends on the state of your engine as to whether it would be worth it...

    How many miles has your car done ?
    Is it regularly serviced ?

    Wouldnt bother with it mate. Usually does more harm than good. Besides the carbon deposits can absorb heat which actually helps your engine in some places.

    Had two mates use it, one of them all the crap that came out the exhaust damages his lambda sensor, and the other used it on an old fiesta, and it cracked a valve head. The garage said that they have also had people come in with oil leaks from cracks that were previously filled with the carbon.

    My Vauxhall garage uses "FORTE Fuel Treatment" for £10 on top of a service. See if yours also does this, if it breaks any part of your car then take it back and say they broke it with their treatment
