Video Killed the Radio Star? Today’s Combustion Catalysts vs. Conventional Fuel Additives

Is 2020 the year that Combustion Catalysts gain the acceptability and adoration of the heavy trucking/equipment community? What is the difference between fuel additives with and without Combustion Catalysts anyway? Fuel additives range greatly in strengths and weaknesses. Most of the better ones offer the benefits of added lubricity to make up for that which […]

Fuel Ox™ & Fracking

Fracking equipment and vehicles are under constant operation at infrequent speeds and intensity. They also tend to idle for long periods of time. These conditions can build-up deposits of carbon, increase emissions and DPF regenerations, while wearing down and causing injectors to foul. Issues like corrosion, stabilization, and insufficient lubrication can lead to an increase […]

Fuel Ox™ Organometallic Catalyst effect on Polarization & Oxygenation of Diesel Fuel

The purpose of the Fuel Ox™ fuel catalyst is to generate a more complete combustion of diesel fuel by breaking up the fuel clumps in the fuel. The reason diesel fuel contains clumps of fuel molecules is because the molecules have an electrical charge. It is the polarization of these fuel molecules that causes them […]

BEWARE THE DANGERS OF E-15

We are all familiar with E-10 (gasoline that contains 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline) but now the EPA has mandated E-15 – gas that contains 15% ethanol – and it is now being marketed and sold at local gas stations. The reason that this is important is because ethanol is corrosive to certain metals and […]

When Should I Use An Anti-Gel?

There’s a lot of upsides to diesel fuel. More vehicular power, greater fuel economy, but one of the main downsides of diesel fuel is that it does not fair well in cold weather. When temperatures drop, diesel forms crystals that clog fuel fuel filters and fuel lines. Not only does this cause engines not to […]

The Five Myths About Fuel Ox™

The 5 Myths about Fuel Ox™ You may be searching for reviews or looking for more information on Fuel Ox™ Complete Fuel Treatment and Combustion Catalyst. The claims of larger than life benefits for your engine maybe the reason you’ve started your search for answers on this mysterious fuel treatment. To make your search a […]

Heating Oil Dormant Months

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR NEXT SEASON? As the weather begins to warm up and the winter craziness begins to die down, you may think that it is no longer necessary to use an anti-gel in your heating oil tanks. It may seem obvious to use a stabilizer once the season ends and heating oil tanks […]

Dreaded DPFs

The Problems with EGRs, DPFs, & SCRs Keeping the air clear of pollutants and poisonous gases that are expelled from diesel vehicles has always been a concern and one the EPA decided to tackle in earnest in 2007. When it comes to limiting both the amount of noxious fumes (NOX etc.) and diesel particulate matter […]

The Deception of the Marine Additives Industry

Marine Additives : What Works And What Doesn’t The marine additive world is filled with additives ranging from “ethanol treatments” and “water removers” to “stabilizers” and “carbon ring detergents.”  Once you have a fuel related issue with your engine, it’s easy to jump on bandwagon of brand names, claims of microscopic enzymes, or products that […]

The New Fuel Contaminant: Asphaltenes

Over 500 refineries worldwide turn oil into fuels that we use to power our cars, trucks, and construction equipment every day. Unfortunately these fuels run the risk of contamination. One of the overlooked contaminants that heavy machinery and trucking operators are starting to see are asphaltenes. Asphaltenes are formed when diesel fuel is heated under […]
