Prevent MOT failures

High exhaust emissions account for more than a quarter of all MOT test failures so the fuel additive firm STP is highlighting its Pre-MOT packs which can reduce the risk of MOT failure. Irregular servicing on older cars is a contributing factor behind carbon build-up but normal combustion also leads to problems in new technology engines. The twin pack Pre-MOT Packs contain a 200ml bottle of STP Petrol Injector Cleaner or Diesel Injector Cleaner which should be used before the MOT test to unclog injectors in one tankful of fuel. The kit also includes a 200ml bottle of STP Petrol Treatment or Diesel Treatment which prevents further deposit build-up.
