The Rise of TerraClean in light of new MOT test rules
On the 20th May 2018, the UK government introduced a series of changes and new rules with regards to MOT testing, including the introduction of limits for emissions on diesel particular filters (DPF) for diesel cars. So, what does this mean for you? A DPF is an important part of a diesel car, it captures and stores exhaust soot in order to reduce emissions. The law now gives stricter limits for DPF’s, during MOT testing, meaning cars will receive an automatic fail if their DPF emits visible smoke of any colour. Garages will now also look into your DPF system to ensure nothing has been altered and can automatically fail any diesel car if tampering is detected.What can I do? Since the new law came into effect, there has been a noticeable uprise in demand for TerraClean’s DPF cleaning service. TerraClean is a completely safe and non-intrusive cleaning system, it uses highly refined, non-harmful fuel and advanced patented technology to clean your DPF.TerraClean involves the testing and cleaning of the DPF, it also helps the environment by removing stubborn carbon deposits without the need for DPF removal. It truly is a highly recommended, healthy option for your car and an excellent solution in light of the stricter MOT laws for diesel cars. What’s not to love? QCS provide a full TerraClean Decarbonising Service, which can help ensure your diesel car passes its MOT, and ultimately results in a healthier and more efficient vehicle.

QCS’s Top 3 Reasons to Service Your Car
Many people believe that servicing your car just means a regular MOT check-up, but what if we told you, servicing your car on a regular basis can avoid any minor problems becoming major ones. Here are QCS’s top reasons to service your car:1. SAFETYSafety first! There could be a lot more going on under the bonnet than you think... regular servicing will give you the peace of mind you need for a fully functioning car. Even if the car feels okay, this doesn’t necessarily mean that everything is working. Wear and tear isn’t always visible and servicing your car can make sure the critical vehicle components such as the braking system and suspensions are at optimal performance for your car. 2. SAVE MONEYRegular servicing can save you some pennies, any issues can be identified early, this can prevent anything getting worse over time which can become costly and expensive to repair. Another fantastic saver is when you visit the petrol pump, the new oil and filters can give you a smoother running engine which improves your fuel consumption. 3. EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR CARIf you want your car to live long and prosper - servicing can extend the life span of your vehicle. The better you treat your car, the longer it is likely to last. Also, if you ever need to sell your car, you can stand out in the competitive second-hand market with a fully functioning car and a regular servicing history that will attract more potential buyers.If you’re thinking about servicing your car, QCS offer 3 levels of car servicing – interim, full and performance.
