Smog Doctor began life in Italy in 1988 to supply professional chemicals to garages and over time we developed a brand and a range of chemical formulations for cleaning all combustion related systems of internal combustion engines using petrol, diesel, CNG or LPG fuels.
Our typical customers are professional car repair workshops, which use our products to restore the functionality of the engine. Our sales people are trained in demonstrating the usage of the products and in helping the customer to obtain maximum improvements.
As all workshop professionals known there are a mind boggling multitude of products in the market. Many companies launch the ‘New Improved Formulation’ and the old product also remains on sale with the result that shelves in garage stores are full of different cans which are basically for the same application but some slightly better. The workshop staff will go for the newest product leaving costly old stock in the store, which in some cases are eventually destined for the bin.
The secret of Smog Doctors success is that instead of adding a new product to the sales program as we improve existing products, we upgrade continuously the existing products in order to allow them to solve any new problem occurring with new engines, systems or components. Therefore we have improved our products again and again without extending our range and confusing our customers.
Some of our competitors will tell you that you need a specific product per application. Try asking our customers if you need a specific product per application, they have tried and tested them and are not trying to sell them. Even better still why not experience the results of our products.
Our customers purchase just a few, but very special cleaners and will therefore save money by purchasing and storing less products. The garage staff can concentrate on just a few products and will obtain the best results as in more satisfied customers.
At the moment we produce for the international market 3 cleaners and 1 additive:
When added to various oil systems
When added to the radiator
When added to the air conditioning system

Referring to the cleaning of a particulate filter without dismantling it, Smog Doctor developed the innovative Total Engine Cleaning System which not only “frees” the clogged filter, but eliminates all causes of the problem and will above all restore full engine efficiency.
One of the main causes of an automatic regeneration not taking place is the short distances being driven today. A regeneration may get a chance to begin but unless it is fully completed it will attempt it again and again. If a vehicle has 80 to 90 per cent of a regeneration completed and is switched off it will attempt to do it again. Another cause is the amount of soot produced by the combustion, overloading the filter and shortening the regeneration frequency.
The Smog Doctor “Total Engine Cleaning System” consists in:
The particulate filter will function normally with lower soot levels arriving from the combustion and the engine will produce full power and torque, consuming less fuel as it did when it was new!
The results from cleaning with Smog Doctor will give enormous satisfaction to the garage, receiving compliments from happy customers who will drive smoother or faster, but will all spend less on fuel.
