Sorry, no etymologies found.
So now we've all 'ad a decoke and got it out of our systems.
However, cars in those days took almost 40 seconds to accelerate to 60mph, consumed a gallon of petrol every 25 miles, required 20 chassis points to be greased every 500 miles and an engine decoke every 30,000 miles, and suffered from terminal body rot in under 10 years.
And we've extended the time between decoke to a level that's far beyond what was happening before.
I know they have steam cracking and they use it to decoke Report this comment] Posted by: Spiritgirl on Dec 24, 2009 8: 21 AM
