    You can also feed in a gallon of water (in a metered slow fashion!) to a hot engine and it will clean off the carbon. I use a small diameter hose to a vacuum port. Keep rpms to PTO levels. It will cool the engine so you need to keep a watch on temperatures to keep the engine hot. It works better when hot.
