heres some thingd people say.
"A few days ago I added RESTORE to my 1990 VW Jetta with over 127,000 miles on it...I just wanted to tell you that it only took a few miles before I noticed a marked improvement in my car's performance...I noticed a drastic improvement on pick-up and it idles much smoother...it feels like a new car again! Thank you for a GREAT product."

"I used your product RESTORE for the first time in May of this year. The vehicle had an engine that wouldn't stay running because 3 of the 8 cylinders had horrible compression. After using RESTORE, the engine idles smoothly and hardly smokes. I am so impressed with the results, that I purchased a can for every vehicle I own...thank you for this excellent product."
- G.S., Henneker, NH

"I want to tell you of my complete satisfaction with your product. I drive a 1986 Chevrolet S-10 (2.8 V6) pickup with over 200,000 miles on it. I have used RESTORE for well over 100,000 miles of those 200,000 miles and I have had no engine problems. The oil is clean after every oil change and the engine is as strong today as it was in 1986. No smoke, no leaks, and at 70 mph I still get over 20 miles per gallon. I see a lot of different oil additives advertised, but your product works for me every mile I drive. Thanks and keep up the great work."

"I have a 1977 Toyota Corolla. One more smog check and I'm home free! RESTORE works! My car is as surprised as I am! Every oil change from now on! Thank you!!"

I've fixed enough cars to know that the only way to get rid of carbon is steam (in the form of a blown headgasket leaking coolant into the cylinder), or by manual means.

found this in the Zmax thread i posted 2 years ago

excerpt
ATF is sometimes added to the fuel tank of diesel engines to lubricate and clean internal fuel system components like injection pumps and injector nozzles. However the legality of this (both from an emissions and a fuel tax standpoint) is questionable, as are the benefits to the fuel system. There are a variety of tested and approved diesel fuel treatment products on the retail market to perform this cleaning process
