American Technology  Motor oils and lubricants for the 21st Century   


Every vehicle's engine wears out as a result of friction during normal operation. This friction causes wear of the cylinder walls which leads to compression loss. Lost compression results in your engine having less power --- it runs poorly and has sluggish acceleration. It also can cause increased oil burning, exhaust smoking, and poor fuel economy.

RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant is a unique engine additive that repairs those worn-out areas in the cylinder wall thereby restoring cylinder compression and improving engine performance to nearly new original condition. RESTORE is the only product that contains the proprietary CSL formula. This technologically advanced formulation fills in and seals micro-leaks in the cylinder wall. The result is increased engine compression and more engine power. Independent lab tests prove that RESTORE really works to increase cylinder compression.



Friction and heat cause wear of the cylinder walls inside every car's engine. As a result of this wear, compression leaks develop between piston rings and cylinder walls. This gradual loss in cylinder compression results in less engine power, sluggish acceleration, oil burning, exhaust smoking and poor fuel economy.

RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant is a unique engine additive that fills and seals microscopic leaks in cylinder walls. Restore works to increase and balance compression across all cylinders which means a smoother running engine with more power, less oil burning and better fuel efficiency.

Each can of RESTORE contains billions of micro-particles of the proprietary formula CSL (Copper 60%, Lead 40%, Silver <1%) suspended in a high performance motor oil. 

Although RESTORE is added to the motor oil but it is not an oil additive. Why?
Simply, because an oil additive, by definition, is a product which is added to automotive oil in the crankcase with the intended purpose of modifying the oil characteristics such as viscosity, detergency, foaming, etc ...
RESTORE is not an oil additive in this sense. It is rather an engine additive because it acts on the engine itself playing a double role :
CSL particles fill scratches, grooves and other worn out areas between the piston and the cylinder wall in the engine.
CSL particles provide maximum natural lubrication due to their high percentage of lead even under very high temperatures.
The action of RESTORE reduces friction and rebuilds metal surfaces, which in turn restores lost power and reduces oil & fuel consumption.

It works effectively wherever friction and wear cuts scratches in metal surfaces, such as cylinder walls, crankshaft and bearings.  As a result, RESTORE has been known to cure piston-slap, noisy tappets and even fledgling bottom-end knock. 

PLEASE NOTE as miraculous as its properties may seem, RESTORE cannot repair broken parts such as cracked cylinder heads or re-plate bearings which have worn right down to the copper lining.  If you are buying RESTORE to repair a problematic engine please ask your mechanic for a diagnosis of the fault before you commence treatment so that your expectations for RESTORE are not unrealistic.


Ametech RESTORE Engine Restorer and Lubricant can be used in both petrol and diesel engines.  It can be used in cars, lorries, agricultural vehicles, construction plant, motorcycles, marine craft, garden equipment, power tools and many other appliances.  How much Restore oil to use will depend on the size of your engine.

An EP (extreme pressure) lubricant in its own right, RESTORE just needs a standard motor oil to act as a carrier for it in your engine - not friction reducing oils (e.g. Castrol Magnatec or racing formulas), as these will just repel RESTORE's CSL particles, preventing them from reaching the worn metalwork in the engine. RESTORE can also be used in MANUAL gearboxes, where it is helpful in reducing whine by reversing wear in the bronze bearings and reducing 'back-lash' by re-aligning the gears. Do not use it in automatic gearboxes;we have another product called MT10 which reduces friction and heat in automatic gearboxes, smoothing out the metal and reducing whine.

For a first time application we recommend 20-25% of RESTORE to each litre of engine sizeFor example a 1000cc vehicle you would need one 250ml can of RESTORE, for a 2 litre engine you would need two 250ml cans and for a 4-5 litre engine you would need one 1 litre can.  For best results, add with fresh oil and new filter at an oil change.

Ametech has been successfully selling RESTORE in the UK since 2003.  To view the feedback from their many satisfied customers please visit Ametech's Ebay site by clicking on the link below:

Customer Testimonials

22 June 2007 – 94 Honda Prelude -  Hi there. You asked me to tell you my findings after 500 miles - well that is now and this stuff is phenomenal.  I have a 94 honda prelude which has been maintained flawlessly throughout its 13 year life, every service on time and main dealer etc.  However I did its last service myself using restore and the difference in power all-round has improved 10 fold.  I will never use a different product again, so keep this stuff on sale mate.  As long as there are cars there will be a need for this gear.  It’s top notch stuff.
nice one… oh and thanks for upgrading me to a litre.  I sorted the wife’s car as well … I’m still noticing improvements daily.
best regards halfpint132 (eBay ID)

23 June 2007 – Audi 80 2.0 - hi, just a quick note to say thanks for great service and an excellent product- my dads audi 80 2.0 has done 150,000 miles and engine was a bit tired, i put 2x250ml cans of restore in during an oil and filter change. the difference was amazing within only 20 miles of driving, the engine is inaudible, it starts better, it's stopped smoking (like i should!), it's better on fuel, the difference in power is incredible- it feels about 30bhp more than prior to adding restore. it feels more like it's done 50,000 miles than 150,000, the more it's driven the better it gets! will defo be having more from you soon for my golf gti. i'm now a regular customer cos it's going in at every service! thanks again, nick, george and joanie.

June 2005 – 1985 Johnson 4hp 2-stroke twin-cyl outboard -  Hi Dave. With admittedly some degree of scepticism I bought some of your oil (eBay ref. 7155366053) and dropped some in each cylinder of my 1985 Johnson 4hp 2-stroke twin-cyl outboard. Now although I haven't taken it on the water again since the treatment, I have instantly noticed a very marked improvement in idling smoothness. On 2-stroke outboards in particular, it's not just the compression but also the balance between cylinders (where only several psi between them can make a difference), though your oil has done wonders for this engine. It also vibrates far less on low and high throttle which I can only attribute to an improvement in cylinder compression, and now I can't wait to try it on the water again - it's so smooth and quieter now! Thank you Dave, your restorer oil is a fantastic product and I'll be treating all my other outboards just the same. Feel free to use my reply in testimony should you wish. All the best, Brendan Townsend

Volvo Diesel Marine engine - Hi Dave. Last year i put a 250 ml can of engine restore in my Volvo Diesel Marine engine and it brought it back from the dead and lasted a further year. I have now replaced the engine for a secondhand 5 year old engine and was so impressed with your product that i am putting some Restore in my new engine as preventative action. thanks again. greg1966sailing( 42

2x 2stroke outboard engines - hi, just to say many thanks for your speedy service and excellent product. I didnt realise how much down on power my 326bhp supercharged jaguar was,until i used ametech. mpg has gone from 17 mpg@90mph to 22mpg@90mph (private land naturally) the car is dramatically quieter,smoother, better on acceleration, lost the small blue puff of smoke on start up, i would recommend this product to anyone. also used in 2x 2stroke outboard engines, on the pull start outboard you can physically feel the better compression as you pull on starter cord. Yet to try bigger outboard, but I’m sure it will of improved that too. Also added to my hydraulic tilt n trim on boat engine, hasnt stopped the leakin rams, but it has slowed them up, maybe in time with use will get even better.
once again, many thanks for a superb product will definitely be coming back to you soon, sam earley.

28 Jun 2007 – 1997 Espace - I put it in my 1997 Espace with 95000 miles on it and its brilliant. Compression and acceleration much improved, engine smoother and more responsive. Its great to find something that does what it says. Thanks. Paul

6 July 2007 – Nissan Serena - hi i have a nissan serena and i had a big end knock and she was very slugish i toke it to a machanic and he said that it was the airflow master meter but i tried ametech engine restore oil and now she go's much better and the knock has gone i would recommend it to all thanks again ametech. pauline260661 (eBay ID)

7 July 2007 – Discovery 300 TDI - Hi, just to say thanks for a terrific service and the free upgrade to 1 litre, very much appreciated! as an ex motor mechanic I was initially a bit sceptical but what an amazing product!! it has made a huge difference to my Discovery (300tdi with 158,000mls on the clock) it runs better,smoother, pulls far better in every gear and mileage has gone up by 3-5 miles per gallon, all in all a major improvement, I will as Arnie say's 'be back'. Many thanks again, Derek.

3 July 2007 - Rover 25 1.4, mileage 42561Hi. Well I’ve got to admit i did not think restore would be as good as it is. I’ve been using it for just about a year and the difference it as made to my engine is, well how can i put it, its just great, before i started using RESTORE i was getting on average 38mpg now it is up to 43mph which is a great saving.  Thank you very much and also my mate who put me onto you.  Cheers, Derick Salmon

11 July 2007 – Ford Mondeo 1.8 TD, Hyster H-60 Fork Lift, Honda sit-on mower - Hi Ros, I’ve used Engine Restore in 3 vehicles and achieved fine results in each. The first being my old faithful 1-8TD Ford Mondeo which has done 146,000 miles. I noticed an overall improvement after a fortnight with everything just seeming to be tighter and the usual smoky start being almost non-existent. The 2nd vehicle was my 25 year old Hyster H-60 Fork lift which also  showed a sharp increase in performance over a number of weeks. Last but not least is my Mother’s Honda sit-on Mower which I added a small amount too whilst doing an oil and filter change, This helped greatly the usual problem of “running-hot” and also the age-old problem of sluggishness  when mowing through heavy grass etc. Many thanks from a very satisfied customer. Terry Lake

18/7/07 - Audi 80 H reg, 2.0E, 150,000 miles – Dad’s Audi goes like a rocket now - better mpg - no smoke - cool! Havin’ 2 more now to give my Golf Gti (2.0 Gti 8 valve 1994 L reg, 87,000 miles) new life! thanks, Nick

19 July 2007 - Ford Transit - Hi, I bought the engine restore oil from you some weeks ago. My Ford Transit has done 272 miles since using your oil, no more black smoke and is running like new. I now believe in your product and will be buying off you again. I have told a local motor factor and he has asked me for your info. I will pass this on for you. regards Dave.

22 July 2007 – 1990 Nissan Patrol GQ TD 4.2 litre diesel 557,000 km's - Hi Ros.  It has been a couple of weeks now since I put Restore in my Nissan Patrol. I am very happy with the results as I expected to be. With all that positive feed back they have to be right. I have a much quieter engine. It seems to be performing much better and with my now having done 850 km's since treatment I notice that the oil visibly shown on the dipstick is much cleaner where before it would be by now rather black,  and still doesn't need topping up yet. My engine has, as I had stated earlier, now done 557.000 Km's. It was from my point of view an excellent engine to put to the test. Kind Regards, Alan (Australia)

4 August 2007 – Audi 2.5 diesel 115,000 miles - Hi there. I have just left positive feedback but wanted to say cheers for managing what I thought was a lost cause. I put 3 cans in an Audi 2.5 diesel, the motor has done 115k and was so bad that under throttle it was blowing spots of oil straight through the exhaust and producing so much smoke I couldn't drive the car in daylight hours. It has taken a couple of weeks of sneaking the car round at nights so I didn't block out the sunlight but after I reckon about 750 miles by God its worked. I will be honest and say I am a bit of a cynic about such products and it was bought much more in hope than expectation. After the 1st week no major improvement, but been out today for a 200 mile run (in daylight !) and its like a different car. I think I'll bin the £3000 quote for a recon engine. Cheers! I will certainly recommend the product and feel free to use this as a testimonial. Ron

29 August 2007 - Volvo 850 TDi, 103,000 miles - Hi David. Bought some Ametech Engine Restore from you a few weeks ago and I'm writing to say how pleased I am with it. I own an 11 year old Volvo 850 TDi with 103,000 miles on clock and the engine was starting to develop a louder than normal 'Diesel Knock'. I changed the oil and filter three weeks ago and added 250ml Engine Restore and the noise eased considerably after approx 400 miles. I now know i should have put in at least TWO cans and will do so at the next service (oil change).  Thanks a lot. Leo (Cardiff)

30 August 2007 - Ford Transit truck - This stuff is the biz.  After 50 miles it's still the same blue smoke... "Here we go" I said to myself, but only 130 miles later the smoke's gone. Power not much different, but I've a Transit truck - they are flat anyway.  All in all, I must give your product 10/10 for the job I got it for and thank you for a first class service. I know I got it for next to nothing, but I'll pay the Buy It Now prices in future.  Thanks again, Kenn (eBay customer)

11 September 2007 - -184 Bedford horsebox, 230,000kms -Just thought i would get back to you after putting restore in my 1984 bedford horsebox with 230,000 kms on the Clock. Took it from Edinburgh to Stafford and back so did over 500 miles, had some back pressure and burned a bit of oil. I have noticed an improvement in performance and MPG, seems to run more smoothly than before. Just did a 200 mile round trip and never used a lick of oil absolutely delighted with this product, will recommend to my colleagues in the taxi trade and of course use it in my own cab as well as the horsebox. Dave Edinburgh

25 September 2007 – Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5TD, 1988, 200,000kms - Hi.  I recently purchased your Engine Restore product off Ebay (Username Squeeljunker) I put the first tin (250ml) in yesterday with fresh oil and ran the car for a while and left it over night, got into it this morning and notice a massive difference already. It's a 1988 2.5TD with nearly 200,000kms on the clock and was sluggish and smoking a bit under power. This morning it pulled brialliantly up the hills and felt much smoother, so much so, that the guy I give a lift too commented on how well it was going in the first 5 mins of getting into it and that was before I said what I had done. My friend and myself are very knowledgeable on cars and carry out all our own maintenance, from servicing to full rebuilds and this is the best thing I've ever experienced.

Needless to say I'll be leaving positive feed back today on Ebay for you and can highly recommend it to anyone else, I'll wait a week of so and put some more in it and then I'm going to put some in the gearbox and see what happens with that as it's a bit on the worn side as well. Kind Regards, Ken Little

27 September 2007 (follow-up to the above) - I have now done a couple of hundred miles and it is still improving. As per my previous remarks, I said I would add more, I have now done this and can safely say that the car has increased significantly in torque output, so much so that it can now power slide out of corners if I don't watch what I'm doing putting on the power (not much fun for other road users when they see 2 tonnes of 4x4 going sidewards), but it is now a lot of fun to drive and my wife is not getting it back! Regards, Ken.

26 September 2007 – Ford Transit 190, 1996, 240,000 miles - Hi David, Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how I got on with your oil. I bought a 1996 Transit 190 with a "banana" manifold engine last year to see if it was a suitable way to transport a disabled wife with a large wheelchair, a disabled daughter and three grandchildren with all their associated clutter!  I didn't want to spend a lot, as I wasn't sure that it would work, so the van I ended up with had the best part of 240,000 on the clock, was a bit noisy and could never be described as fast but it felt as if it would have driven to the moon and back, albeit at about 58-60 mph!

I decided to take the whole family to France this year and so had the van serviced by a friend before we went.  I had read about your product on ebay whilst looking for some other parts and decided "What the Hell - Give it a go".  It was duly put in the engine at the service and I thought that it may do some good, you never know!  The van had passed its MOT just a couple of weeks before this and although it smoked a bit, it passed with flying colours.

On the first day, we drove to Dover and then from Boulogne to Rouen, a total of about 400 miles.  The second day, we drove another 400 miles to get to the house we had rented and I didn't give your oil a thought........until about 50 miles from destination.  Here, there is a large hill that is quite steep that just goes on and on and on, and has some nasty curves in it too.  As we approached, I thought we would be down to third gear at best and struggling by the top - but we just sailed up in fifth!  I also realised that, without thinking, we had been cruising at just about 70mph for the last hour or two, a speed that the van just wouldn't do a couple of days earlier.  All this was being accomplished with a van that was loaded virtually to the roof!

As well as the increase in top speed and acceleration, there was a reduction in engine noise and we also used less fuel than we had been previously when there was no load in the van!  The only thing that doesn't seem to have changed is the amount of smoke that it gives off - but as it passed it's MOT like that, maybe I was expecting too much on that front.  Whatever, the difference is quite impressive, to the extent that we were going to sell the van after the holiday and buy a newer one but we've decided to keep this one for another year now as it's going so well.

Thank you, and I feel that you are more than permitted to state that "It does exactly what it says on the tin (or advert)"! Best wishes, Len Casson

28 September 2007, Swift Kon-Tiki Motorhome 2.5D, 50,000 miles -Hi Ros. Just back from a week of touring the South of Ireland (Killarney). I'm happy to report that we travelled 800 mls in a Fiat Ducato based Swift Kon-Tiki motorhome with a 2.5cc diesel engine with 50th on the clock. I felt that it's performance was lacking a little of late but after adding your RESTORE at an oil change I found quite a considerable increase in performance. This was especially noticeable on hill climbing where the engine appeared to have more torque resulting in less down changes. A considerable difference which I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending.  My next move will be to add some to a diesel Audi (with 213th on the clock) which I use for everyday driving. Kind regards, Raymond, Highly satisfied customer.

1 October 2007 – Peugeot 309TD, 130,000 miles - Hi, just to let you know that i have total belief in your engine restore. After my first purchase a few weeks ago i have noticed a significant difference even after the first couple of hundred miles with my peugeot 309 TD. I flushed with your engine flush, changed my filter and put mineral oil in my engine with two 250mls of engine restore. There is no smoke, easy starts and smooth running. It now drives like it has a few thousand miles on the clock instead of 130,000! I have just purchased some more for my friend’s car and shall continue to do so for mine. Thanks for a great product! Keith.

3 October 2007 - Mercedes 814D Horsebox, 1992, 308,000 kms - Having used some additives in the past with little or no positive results, I was a sceptical purchaser of the Ametech product.  My wife's Mercedes 814D horsebox is a 1992 model with 308,000 kms on the 4 litre diesel engine.  It was smoking quite a bit on start up and even when warm you could see some blue smoke coming out.  The quote for a reconditioned engine plus fitting was about £2000.  In went a litre of Ametech at the oil change.  After a few journeys, the smoke on start up had diminished significantly (I think some smoke is normal for a diesel engine that has been standing for a week or more) and there is now no smoke once we're on the move.  The emissions test at the MOT showed a reduction of over 50% compared to the previous year. As far as I'm concerned that's pretty good scientific evidence that this stuff works. I've just ordered some for my 1984 Mercedes 230ce ….Thanks, Neil Baylis

12 October 2007 – BMW 320D, 152,000 miles – Dear njin-life, I hoped your product would be good and that it would make a difference with my 152000 mile BMW 320D. 1000 miles later I can say - very good. The car runs quiter, smoother and feels more powerful on the mid range pick-up. I intend to keep using your product and will recommend it to my friends.
many thanks  - t300

25 October 2007 – Ford Probe, 109,000 miles - Hi, my Ford Probe had a problem when starting first thing. It pumped out blue smoke for the first few mins, then it would clear.  The engine had covered 109000 miles and looked as if it was neglected of services.  After adding a stop smoke additive that made no difference whatsoever, I was going to count my losses and get rid of the car.  I then stumbled across the Ametech website by luck and thought “Oh yeah! Just another company promising miracles to make a quick pound or two”.  How wrong I was.....   After putting an order through sales (quite late in the day), I emailed Ametech and asked if they could send it extra fast, as I was going to be away after the next day.  They were fantastic. They mailed me straight back to tell me it was on its way and to expect it the next day.  The following morning Mr Postman knocked with my parcel… now that's what I call a quick service (well done Ametech… outstanding customer service).

Anyway,  it went straight in the engine and every morning when I started the car, I noticed the smoke getting less and less, and now you can hardly notice any smoke at all!  Well I had my doubts, if I'm honest, but I was proved wrong and this product really does work.

I'm so impressed by the customer service, and the product of course, that I now recommend it to anyone and everyone.  Keep up the great work Ametech and you’re sure to be a winner.  Thanks so much, Regards Martin.

30 October 2007 – Renault 1647cc  - Hi Roz! my engine, (1647cc) Renault, had piston-slap and I think! small-end knock, although the engine doesn't use any water or oil and oil pressure was o.k. Since "Restore" was added, along with new oil filter and good quality oil and 230 miles, the engine is noticeably quieter and smoother. I even had to slow-down the tick-over and mixture.....if this continues up to the recommended 1000 miles, I will be very pleased indeed.........Question…can RESTORE do the same for gearboxes and diff's? I hope my reply helps you with your product and if my engine improves, as I think it will I, and the people I tell, will be using it. Thanks rocker...

09 November 2007 – Triumph Spitfire – Hi, bought a tin last week for my triumph spitfire. It had a lot of blue smoke. I left it running for six hours [not on the road, so could not drive] - smoke gone, even on high rev up. I’m so impressed I’ve bought another tin. Thanks a million, saved me hundreds of pounds. – squareshug (ebay ID)

11 November 2007 – BMW 316, 1999 – Hi, I recently purchased a 400ml can of your product and as requested here is my 500 mile testimony. I recently purchased an accident damaged 1999 316 BMW for winter use, as I am a biker. I had the wing/bumper repaired & painted that only cost £95. The big problem was the engine rattle. On start up the old girl would rattle for about 10 minutes or until fully warm & smoke like it was the smoke machine for a rock band.  So 1 wynn’s engine flush later (sorry to mention some one else’s product, but it is the truth of the story) drain & refill with semi synth oil & filter, about £13 for both, followed by a bit of your magic. A 40 mile trip to a concert & still a very loud rattle, my friends a little concerned we may not get home.  But on the return journey no rattle (probably the loud music). Next morning, and here’s the thing, instant start up & no rattle or smoke whatsoever. It even seems to crank faster & is so much smoother on tickover. Also, not sure why, but the slight oil leak it had seems to have stopped.  So the bottom line – well, I have just turned down £1500, from a friend who has seen the finished article, for my £600 banger!  I run a small business & straight after the Christmas rush the vehicles are due a service. I can assure you they will all be getting a can of Ametech & your flush (sorry I did not know you did one when I ordered last time). Cheers. the-memorial-man (eBay ID)

22 November 2007 – Lotus Esprit S3 - Dear Dave, Just wanted to say how thankful I am for being introduced to Ametech.  After adding it when changing my oil there was a slight improvement, however, after the 2nd change things really began to take off.  My Lotus Esprit S3 (which are known for being temperamental) is left mainly outside, was giving problems starting in the mornings & plugs (which had to be changed 3 to 4 times a year) oiled up!

Surprise, surprise, since that last change things have got better and better and seems to have solved most of my problems, and there is also a decrease in petrol consumption over a long trip.  A very satisfied customer.  Yours sincerely, A H Shrive, Wolverhampton.

11 December 2007 – Subaru Impreza Turbo, 1999, 80,000 km – Hi.
I have run the treatment in for 500 miles, noticed a difference almost instantly. I used mobil 1 & did a full service on my car when I added the ametech, this maybe amplified it's affect. Although saying that I'm absolutely certain the ametech treatment is the main ingredient to the massive improvement in my car engine performance. Not only performance, the car runs as smooth as silk even when cold & I am now keeping it a little longer, I was going to sell the car as it felt a little tired but this service/treatment has injected a new life into the car & its smiles for miles again. Ametech's claims sound too good to be true but I can confirm they are justified claims & it is a fantastic breakthrough in car maintenance. Just needs buying & adding, you'll see, best £25 I've spent on my 99 impreza turbo. My car has done 80k & I had noticed a decline in the cars response, ametech has restored it like the day i bought it & restored my confidence in the reliability. Thanks - golf170479 (eBay ID)

14 December 2007 – Nissan Largo 2.0, 1996 – Hi. I have got to say wow. 
I have a turbo diesel 2 litre 1996 nissan largo that i imported from japan. had all the usual done, full service including oil change, timing belt etc, but even with all this done to her, she still sounded very noisy on tick over & at normal driving speed, loads of blue smoke on start up & was very sluggish on acceleration.  so i thought i would try AMETECH ENGINE RESTORE OIL & to say i noticed the difference in her after the first week would be an understatement.
I am no expert when it comes to cars but there were real noticeable changes in our nissan largo once i had used the engine restore oil & i can agree without a doubt it really does do what they claim. I WILL BE USING IT AGAIN.  KIND REGARDS FROM A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER. perry8408 (eBay ID)

2 January 2008 - 1990 Volvo 940 2.0 Estate - I put a second engine from the breakers with 75000 miles on it, run the engine for 250 mile then added 500ml of AMETECH, after a few miles we noticed that the engine was running quieter and acceleration improved, engine smoother and more responsive. Its great to find something that does work. Thank you, Frank. scaggs2007 (eBay ID)

8 January 2008 – 1988 Renault 5 GT Turbo - Hi Guys.  Well I bought my second can of Engine Restore and put it in my Renault 5 GT Turbo with the oil which had the first can in. I had done 180 miles with the first can and didn't notice anything so decided to put another one in as recommended by you. I drove to work this morning which is less that a mile away and when I got there the knock had gone. I can't believe it. I asked about your product on the Renault Turbo Owners Club and many members told me to avoid it but after already taking the engine out twice in 2 months I didn't want to do it again. £30 well spent and I will be using again and recommending you to Members of the owners club. Thanks, Simon. Sy5gtt (eBay ID)

24 January 2008 - ERF tractor unit with 11 litre Cummins engine AND RS Turbo engine - Hi Ros. Well what can I say! I have used your product in cars and have been impressed. BUT I have recently added three litres to an 11 litre Cummins engine that was burning a gallon of oil a week. The vehicle is used as a shunter in Southampton docks and is in use 20 hours out of 24 every day.  It pulls on average about 300 tons every day and has a hard life, it has now not used any oil for over two weeks and is running and starting like a dream.  I cannot express how much I am impressed with this additive and the way it works. I have no reservations about recommending your product to anyone.  I just don’t want the other sub contractors to find out about it as their vehicles are gradually dying and using oil faster than the refineries can make it.  IMPRESSED is not a good enough word to describe your product as I think it is b***dy marvellous.

My son and I have used RESTORE in lots of things and we are really over the moon with it. Over three months ago I totally rebuilt my son's RS Turbo engine and we added RESTORE to the oil. The oil is still as clean as the day we put it in and we have noticed, as other people have said, that RESTORE seems to cure small oil leaks!  Many thanks, Bob (SBP TRANSPORT)

5 March 2008 - ROVER K Series Engines - Hello David, I would just like to say a few words about your product. Every Rover owner will know how noisy the K series engine is, from tappets to the engine being all alloy with steel liners (clatters on cold start), making this off putting to buyers when you come to sell your car.  Having used your product on 3 occasions now, the difference to the engines I have used this on is remarkable. I stress to all new purchasers, allow time for the product to do its work!  500 to 1000 miles will produce a huge improvement. Many Thanks again. Chris Cook, Norfolk

25 March 2008 – Ford Mondeo TDDI, 2001 - Hi, just to let you know that although I haven't done 1000 miles yet I'm impressed - it actually makes a difference. I put the restore into my 2001 Mondeo tddi, prior to application the engine was very noisy even for a ford and pushed a lot of smoke out on start up and heavy acceleration. After only 300 miles the engine was quieter and the smoke reduced, now at 580 miles after application the smoke has gone - my mechanic asked me what I'd done do it. As a bonus I now get an extra 2mpg (urban), not a lot I know but its more than before!!  In future I'll put this in every car I get whether it needs it or not!! Thanks, Andy, Lincolnshire

31 March 2008 – Citroen Zx Elation diesel 1.9, 1996, 102,000 miles
- I have now done more than the required 500 miles with your product, both in manual gearbox and engine, so I can add to positive feedback already received. I bought, this Xmas 2007, a 1996 Citroen Zx Elation diesel 1.9 manual, 102000mls on the clock. I am now approaching 106000mls and I am sure I have noticed the smoother engine and gear change. But this is the interesting bit, I am not burning oil (ok, good engine you say), also colour of oil has not blackened as diesels usually do. Car starts quick and clean and although this is no rocket engine but will keep up on the outside lane of motorway with modern vehicles and smooth without labouring engine, and again no visual smoke. I intend to keep this car for a while as it is very economical to run, and if I change my wife wants it as she runs an antique VW Polo with no power steering, so will keep you informed on its ongoing performance with your product. Thanks again. – firdevsbir (eBay ID)

21 April 2008 - Ford 8210 Tractor - Hi Ros. Here is the picture of me and my Ford 8210 as requested.  I haven’t done many hours since the treatment was added, but even so there is a marked reduction in vapour from the breather and blue smoke. Also the flickering oil light has gone out, which I think is aided by the engine rpm going up by about 100rpm.  Regards, Simon Smith, Agricultural Contractor

29 April 2008 – ‘97 Toyota Carina E 1.8 GS 5dr, 142k miles - Hi Ros, An update is required: I drained the Magnatec and changed the filter and then put the RESTORE in with "normal" oil. I noticed that the fuel economy improved from the very first tank full. Where I was previously getting about 360-370 miles per tanks of unleaded, on the first tank full after starting to use RESTORE I managed 405 miles! This was an improvement back to the nearly-new consumption figures I obtained when I first purchased the vehicle back in '99.
I have since sold the vehicle, but I was impressed with the immediate improvement shown. I will definitely consider RESTORE in the future.
Regards, Kevin, Wiltshire

8 May 2008 - 1995 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.8 OHC (with Cat) mileage 97653  Hi Ros, after 12 hours of running the car at idle (12 x 1hour intervals) and running for a mileage of 488 miles the engine has definately improved. As promised, the test results:

Test Results: 
1995 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.8 OHC (with Cat) mileage 97653
              Before          After 
Cyl 1                            118              124

Cyl 2                            121              129

Cyl 3                            110              120

Cyl 4                              98              117
Compression done with engine at operating temp. Improved compression, engine noticeably idled more smoothly with less vibration.

Emissions                Before                   After 
CO (at idle)             0.6                         0.4

HC (at idle)             210ppm                 140ppm                                     

CO (2500 rpm)        0.3                         0.3

HC (2500 rpm)        175ppm                 110ppm

Other than the oil / oil filter change and the 400mls of Restore no other 'work' was done to the engine.  Improved Carbon Monoxide emission (lowered) and improved (lower) Hydro Carbons suggests less burnt oil in the exhaust due to better piston/bore seal. Noticeably smoother idle and improved throttle response. With lower CO, fuel consumption has improved slightly. (sorry no accurate figures ...estimate approx 3-4 mpg more). Thank you, Kind Regards David (EBay ID – reflexwarrior)

16 May 2008 - 1972 4.7 litre Maserati Indy - Dear njin-life, Report after 500 miles, bought this 1L and 400ml for a 1972 4.7 litre Maserati Indy in readiness for a drive to Monaco for the Historic Grand Prix. The car had previously had low compression, burnt oil and had a little blow smoke and popping on overrun. A test trip to silverstone form lincolnshire for the supercar race on the 20th April was arranged and with hope and expectancy the restore was added after an oil and filter change. Unfortunately the oil filler cap had developed a crack and no longer sealed properly and on the trip down must have lost 3-4 litres of oil with the Restore as well. Though after the journey there was an improvement in performance and oil pressure. Bought another 400ml for the Monaco trip but the post office weren't quite quick enough in delivery and I didn't get it in time. The car did run well though and after 2000 miles with an 18 mpg average, there is noticably improvement. The other 400ml to go on the valve guides in a hope that will help the overrun. – fonrdb

27 May 2008 – 1967 Fiat 500 - Hello, I have used this stuff with great success in a 1967 Fiat 500. the car had a tired engine, the engine was low on compression and was producing some levels of smoke when hot and left to tick over for a while. the performance was also down although it didn’t have a lot in the first place. my girlfriend owned the car and asked if there was anything I could do to improve it, so not wanting the hassle of rebuilding the engine I thought I would try Ametech, as a friend of mine had used it with positive results in a 4.6 PA38 Range Rover. so I changed the oil and added one 250ml can. initially there was no noticeable improvement, however after 200 miles my girlfriend who had no idea that I had added this stuff remarked on how the little Fiat seemed to have more go and wasn’t producing any smoke at the lights when driving off. she was thrilled to bits and was convinced I had secretly rebuilt the engine as a surprise, this provided me with many much needed browney points with limited financial outlay (RESULT).. I then drove the Fiat myself and found there to be a definite improvement and I was surprised how much its performance increased, its acceleration was greatly improved as was its top speed increased from a thrashy 55 mph to a super smooth 70 mph, so I reckon this stuff works. however the Fiat is a very basic simple engine, on more modern sophisticated units it might be wise to seek further advice…happy driving.

29 May 2008 – 1998 Mazda Bongo, 120,000 miles -Hi there. I just wanted to let you and your customers know how much this stuff really works...I bought a 1/4 ltrs can and put it into my 1998 Mazda bongo which had done approx 120,000 miles....started blowing blue smoke occasionally so i put in the can and after 500 miles driving i noticed more torque, more mpg and generally no smoke or plumes coming from the back end. I have now invested £45 in a full litre for my next service and will insist upon it in all cars etc that i may have in the future...I have recommended it to a friend and he has noticed a 'MARKED' difference in the way his motor is performing and he has only done 300 miles with his litre so far. To any sceptics out there...believe in this cos' it really does work!!!!!! – absentrush (eBay ID)

31 May 2008 – V8 3.9 efi - Dear njin-life, Hi just to let you know, my V8 3.9 efi smoked like a chimney especially on tick over. I haven't quite done 500 miles and Ametech has done the job, no more smoke! Thankyou. Kind regards, Bob.- klaytoswine (eBay ID)

31 May 2008 – Mitsubishi Spacewagon 2.4 gdi, ‘W’ reg - Dear njin-life,
Hi, I just thought I would let you know that I bought 2 cans of engine restore in the hope that it would solve my noisy engine, I have a 'W' reg Mitsubishi Spacewagon and they are known for having noisy tappets (sounds like a bad ford escort!) I only put in 1 can although you recommended 2 for my 2.4 gdi engine but it solved the noise almost immediately! I have just changed my oil and added the second can. Engine restore has saved me a fortune as I would have had to invest in some 'lash adjusters' for my car at a cost of about £500. An added benefit is that my car now returns approx 38 - 40 mpg which is fantastic for a huge 2.4 car, its also more responsive. Thank you so much, I have recommended you to my family and friends many of whom ordered and are as impressed as I am. – lottieapple (eBay ID)



"If your engine is low on compression and a bit smoky you’ve really got to try Ametech Engine Restorer. You add it at an oil change and it reverses engine wear. I know these magic cure-alls have been around for ages, but this one really does work. A mate’s Bentley S2 had a flickering oil light at low revs and clouds of blue smoke from the rear. Rather than swallow the two grand hit for an overhaul, he dumped two litres of Ametech (Engine Restore Oil) into the sump. His S2 is now ‘running as sweet as a nut’, with no smoke and no blinking oil pressure light. Ametech’s not cheap, but it’s a very sound investment."

SUNDAY MIRROR, 4th SEPTEMBER 2005, page 56

Q. I BOUGHT a BMW 330 Ci Sport with 21k miles from a main dealer in February. As the weather was very cold, I put the ticking noise from its hydraulic tappets down to cold-starting. Now the weather has improved, but the noise has not. What do you reckon?

- Steve Thomas email.

A. IT'S no big deal, but it does sound like you have a dry tappet. The problem might go away if you flush the engine and change the oil and filter. You could also bung in a can of Ametech Engine Restorer. But given your 330 is still under warranty, you should go back to the dealer and get them to investigate.


CARL Jones would like to know what to do about his 150,000-mile 1998S Ford Galaxy, which smokes like a tramp-steamer. Carl, from Ormskirk, has been quoted £1,500 for an engine rebuild, but remembers mention of an engine restorer that can be poured into the sump. Would this be suitable for his Galaxy?

QUENTIN says: Yes. Pour in a can of Ametech Engine Restorer and you should see a dramatic difference. I've tried it on several motors, the latest being a 1991H Mercedes 190D that sounded like something from before the Industrial Revolution - 500 miles later and I can take my earplugs out. Officially tested in America, Ametech contains billions of micro-particles which fill scratches, grooves and imperfections on metal surfaces inside the engine. The test results revealed up to a 50 per cent increase in compression, while fuel consumption and power were also significantly improved. Trust me, it works.

To the hundreds of readers who have written and emailed about Ametech Engine Restorer, here are full contact details: Ametech Ltd. The Technology Centre, Station Road, Woodbridge, Suffolk, IP13 9EZ. Phone 01728 726620 or email

It's the only engine additive I've ever found to work.


Q. A WHILE back you mentioned a product that can help with wear on older engines. What was it? - Keith Stubbs, Bury

A. FOR all those people who have written in wanting to know how to get hold of Ametech Engine Restorer (which works for me), call 01728 726620.


Q. WE have an M-reg Vauxhall Carlton 3.0 GSi 24-valve, which we use for towing a caravan. It has 220,000 on the clock, but doesn't use a drop of oil. You recently referred to an oil additive which helps prolong an engine's life. Would it be worth using it in our Carlton? I was also talking to another Carlton owner who had his car converted to run on LPG. What are your views on this, given the age and mileage of our car? - Andrew Ashton, email.

A. IT'S grand to hear you've covered such an intergalactic mileage, but you have to remember that your Carlton isn't worth a fortune, so wouldn't justify the £1,500 or so to convert it to gas. By all means drop in a can of Ametech Engine Restorer, (01728 726620) which will help to prolong your engine's life, but I wouldn't make a major outlay. You'll never see it again.


Q. IN 2002 I bought a 1994 Honda Civic which has sailed through its MoTs ever since. It's now used very little (three times a week to get to work and the odd shopping trip), but I do still need it. What can I do to ensure its longevity? You often talk about replacing cambelts and special stuff to put in the engine. Would this help? - Jan, email

A. THERE'S no reason why your Civic shouldn't last another decade.  Change the cambelt as soon as possible, and make sure you replace oil and filter every 5,000 miles, using synthetic oil, which doesn't degrade like mineral based oil. Ask your mechanic to put in Ametech Engine Restorer (01728 726620) at every oil change. Touch up any stone chips and also find yourself a friendly independent Honda specialist who can spot things before they fall off or break, and most importantly, won't charge you as much as £95 an hour.

17th DECEMBER 2006

Derek Ashurst's stepson owns a 1989 Reliant Rialto that has done 80,000 miles and smokes like a tramp-steamer. He was wrongly advised to change the head gasket, which has made no difference to the amount of smoke the Rialto chucks out, but Derek remembers mention of an engine oil additive that can reduce exhaust emissions. Would it help?

Quentin says: I recommend Ametech Engine Restorer for worn engines (01473 655537 or, but there is a limit. I think you're looking for a miracle on the scale of loaves and fishes with your stepson's Rialto, which sounds well and truly kippered. The bores must be seriously worn, with maybe a broken piston ring to boot, which is sucking up oil into the combustion chamber, burning it and billowing out clouds of acrid blue smoke. Frankly, I don't think you should spend any money on a car that's probably worth about twenty quid. Get your stepson into a newer, cleaner and safer motor. Just think of the pollution. Tell him to scrap the thing before someone reports him to the council.


Q. Could you tell me if there is a product that cuts out blue smoke emissions from a car's exhaust? My father-in-law's car has this problem, and he has been told it will fail its next MoT unless something is done. - Tom Lloyd, by email

A. Sounds like your father-in-law's motor really needs an engine rebuild, or at the very least new valve guides. The only additive I've ever come across that actually makes worn engines quieter, smoother and less smoky is something called Ametech.  I've used it on various old Rollers and Bentleys, and it worked well.  Details at

This amazing repair oil can be used in any rotating or reciprocating metal-on-metal friction and wear environment where mineral or synthetic oil is being used. It can be used with any fuelling system: diesel, petrol, LPG, Mazda Rotary, NSU Rotary, and any 'common rail' injection system. It MUST NOT however, be used in HEUI (high pressure oil activated) diesel fuel systems. HEUI could be any high efficiency diesel engine where the injectors operate on high pressure engine oil - if you are not sure whether this applies to your engine/vehicle, please consult your dealer.

Dos and Don'ts

DO: Start with a clean engine, fresh oil and new OEM filter. Flush the engine, if necessary, prior to doing the oil change and adding RESTORE.

DO: Use the can at room temperature and shake it really well to agitate the particles before adding to your engine. Check the empty can before discarding it to make sure than none of the valuable CSL particles are left in the can

DO: Use a grade of motor oil recommended for your engine in conjunction with RESTORE. Don't switch to a thicker grade like a 20W50 - this will just impede the RESTORE process.

DO: Run the engine as much as possible after adding RESTORE. It takes around 1000 miles or 20 hours of engine use for RESTORE to complete the wear reversal process in your engine, so do be patient.

DO: Follow the instructions carefully, especially if you are treating 2 strokes*, vehicles with wet clutches* or applying RESTORE through spark plug, glow plug or injector holes*.

DO: Obtain a mechanic's diagnosis for your engine problem before you start treatment to ensure that your expectations are realistic. RESTORE fills wear in metal surfaces - it won't mend broken or bent parts, burnt valve seats, glazed bores, holed pistons, broken rings, blown gaskets, blocked hoses or pressure relief valves etc.

DO: Check that RESTORE is the right treatment for your engine problem. See our guide. Call us if in doubt.

DON'T: Use RESTORE with oils containing plant esters, such as Castrol Magnatec or racing formulas (Silkolene 'R' etc.)

DON'T: Use RESTORE with other friction-reducing additives such as Slick 50, Prolong, Activ8, Motorup, STP and Wynn’s friction-reducers, PTFE, Teflon, Chlorine, Molyslip etc.

DON'T: Overfill the engine. Always make sure you allow for the addition of the quantity of RESTORE you are using within the total oil allowance for your engine.

DON'T: Use a lot more than the recommended dosage for your engine. A little more won't hurt, but a lot more could do harm. You can always add more RESTORE later if you need to.

DON'T: Use RESTORE in automatic transmissions, limited slip differentials, wet clutch situations*, engines requiring a petroil mix*, power steering fluid, brake fluid, fuel tanks.
*Please contact us for instructions for dealing with engine wear in motorbikes with wet clutches and 2 stroke engines requiring a petroil mix.

DON'T: Use RESTORE in HEUI diesel fuel systems (high pressure oil activated injection systems used in Ford Powerstroke diesel engines amongst others). RESTORE is recommended for use only in Common Rail Fuel Injection Systems.
