This Dyno report is from a 2004 VW Transporter which was suffering from power loss and the vehicle owner decided to give Revive a try! Before he carried out the treatment, he ran a Dyno Test prior to using Revive (RED trace) and then ran a second test after the Revive treatment (BLUE trace).
These two Dyno tests clearly demonstrate the difference and the effectiveness of Revive Engine Cleaner & Power Restorer.

"I have a vw t5 and it's been slow, sluggish and been dropping into limp mode every day since I've had it, whether pushing too hard through the gears or hitting 70 it would fail on me. I took it to a garage and had a couple of things changed, sensors but that didn't cure it. I heard of this stuff and it arrived this morning!
I was sceptical as I'm sure a lot of people would be but I've just got back from a 150 mile trip and the transformation is amazing! Power is back through the gears, smokes a lot less out of the back and as much as I tried to get it to it would fault into limp mode!!
This product has made my van run like a dream.. I'm not affiliated with them in any way but just want to erasure anyone who may have the same problems as I used I have. Will be buying another bottle in a years time to do as part of a service! 10/10"

"I had never heard of your Revive product until Stephen at The Cross Garage in Kirkintiloch suggested I used it to 'try' and solve a year old problem on my Jag X Type 2.2 that I have owned from new!
The car would go into limp home mode and over the last year I had replaced the EGR valve, fuel rail and pressure switch plus the map sensor.
Revive did the trick, car ran better immediately, no Limp Home Mode. And more miles to the litre. Excellent!"
"The car, an Audi A6, has done 102800 miles of, in the main, motorway style driving, giving me on average 51 miles to the gallon. The power and acceleration were fine and the only problem seemed to be a bit of smoke at start up and when I accelerated away at speed. A friend then said to me that this may be due to the turbo charger getting clogged with carbon and this could lead to the turbo over boosting and giving me an engine warning light / breakdown error. As I was given details of 'Revive' some time ago I dug out the sheet to re-read the details. This seemed to be what was needed to do the job, so I booked my car in for the treatment whilst having my M.O.T test.
I was told that I may get smoke out of the exhaust for a mile or two after the treatment and this is normal, so I took it for a 'spin'. Carrying less weight in the car, as all of my works tool kit was left at home, it was difficult to judge if the car handled any different, but pulling away from roundabouts really put the fun back into driving! Was this now a new car or was I just driving it to prove the point? Only time will tell.
Now some 1700 mile further on, I can give true feedback on the performance of the car:-
Firstly no smoke, starting in the mornings and accelerating away on the motorway are smoke free. The acceleration from 50-70 MPH is stronger even carrying a heavy passenger load, you can certainly notice the difference!
I have monitored the MPG, not easy to give accurate feedback here on only 1700 miles, but the motorway MPG has increased from 55.2 to 55.4 but the town driving has stayed the same at 38.1 MPG."

"I thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how my Audi A3 2.0tdi is doing since having some issues with the turbo over boosting etc. After treating the engine & turbo with the Revive product the over boosting issues have stopped altogether and the engine now seems both quieter and smoother.
The acceleration has since improved and the car definitely has more pulling power through the gears. I have covered approximately 400 miles since the treatment at 77000 miles and there has been an improvement in the engine's economy. When accelerating hard from low speeds the exhaust no longer smokes like it used to. I'm very happy with the Revive product and would be happy to recommend it to other diesel drivers. It would appear to be a very effective product cleaning the turbo and throttle body as well as other parts of the aspirating system as well. I am sure that other users will agree that the Revive product will give a new lease of life to their engine and prolong the life of their turbos as well. Many thanks" - Philip Yeates
Thank you to William Cam from France for sending us these two photos of his VW Golf's EGR and Throttle Body after a Revive treatment. He removed them because he had an electronic fault but he was so impressed with the result, he took the time to send them to us.

"Just a quick note to say how good your Revive product is, I have used it several times now with a very good success rate, it has transformed the vehicles I have used it on.
It has also saved one customer a lot of expense by not having to replace the turbo for a sticking vane fault.
I will continue using your Revive product and will recommend to all our customers, I will also recommend to use this as a prevention and not just as a cleaning solution.
Keep up the good work"

" A Peugeot 1.9 HDI that had been suffering major running issues had be in and out of the main dealer, to a diesel specialist and a Peugeot specialist, had almost every related part changed even twice in some cases, everything failed to remove the DTCs.
As a last resort I sprayed some Revive into the inlet side of the turbo and after a short period the vehicle was running nicely again"

"Good product tested on a Megane scenic of + 300 000 km and it consumes less fuel and has more pick-up."

"You can add my name to the people who 'have used it and were very happy with its results.' A 2008 Zafira Z19DTH 112,000 miles was transformed from the sluggish response below 3K, vehicle it was."

"Our first use of Revive was on a Vauxhall Insignia with 100,000 miles on the clock being used as a taxi so doing a lot of short journeys around the town it came to us having been elsewhere with no cure for a general lack of performance we code read the car and found it was low on boost although there was some there not sufficient for it to run properly we ran the treatment through after a gentle run up the road it was a different car to drive much more responsive the boost readings improved. the owner has been back and said fuel economy has improved and is well impressed with how it now drives. New customer gained.
The latest one i did was a 1.9tdi Galaxy it kept dropping into limp codes stored were for over boost this was proven on the road it was also down on acceleration although the customer had not complained of this. We could see the actuator rod of the turbo moving but obviously the vanes were jammed. On running Revive through the system i was pleased to have an exhaust extractor coupled as the amount of smoke that instantly poured out of it we would have been well fumigated. Upon completion a road test and it was like a different vehicle it would accelerate well and drive as well as a new one.
Had i not found Revive i would have been fitting new turbo's at horrific costs in both these cases"

"Andrew Avis from Greg Tunstall Mechanical in Australia kindly sent us this picture of a TDv8 RangeRover. They only treated one side of the twin EGR system with Revive, then inspected the two sides and compared the difference:
Pd150 leon. In for map. Overboost limp mode. Do a Revive diesel cleaning treatment on it and all good after. Nice product which actually works!! Blue plot limp mode cause by overboost from stick vnt. Revived is the red plot. Logs of requested and actual boost showing the gains in boost control"
