When I tore my engine down, the pistons and combustion chamber were covered in flaky carbon. I realize this is normal. Question....Do you think Techron will keep these deposits to a minimum? Or should I just not worry about it?

No, you don't really need to be worried about it, but if you are, then Techron will help to keep the intake valves, combustion chambers and piston tops clean.................Bill
