Adding The Fuel Ox to diesel, heating oil and gasoline, Central Pa. distributor helps fleets, farmers, homeowners and businesses improve fuel efficiency, engine performance
Affordable Fuels, which is now selling Simeon Fuel-branded diesel, gasoline and heating oil to customers throughout Central Pennsylvania, chose to incorporate The Fuel Ox into its products in response to growing concerns about the effect of ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and increasingly rigid engine standards on performance and efficiency.
“I want to sell products that I can stand behind, but the diesel fuel being refined these days has not kept up with the demands of modern engines, especially since the ULSD mandate,” said Arden Steiner, president of Affordable Fuels “Our customers deserve better, and with The Fuel Ox in our new Simeon Fuel, we’re giving them something much better, in terms of fuel efficiency, engine performance and emissions control.”
The Fuel Ox is a highly concentrated, multifunctional fuel additive enhanced by a proprietary organometallic combustion catalyst to deliver a more complete combustion cycle. Customers generally report fuel efficiency gains of 4 percent to 12 percent or more in some cases. It also substantially reduces soot and emissions – which prolongs DPF life and reduces the need for manual regenerations by 60 percent. In addition, The Fuel Ox offers the benefits of a traditional fuel additive; it cleans and stabilizes fuel, protects fuel injectors and other vital engine components, guards against corrosion and removes water.
Steiner said he was sold on The Fuel Ox after a customer pilot program last year. “It’s done everything it’s been touted to do,” he added. “We’ve since tested it thoroughly with a number of customers and have seen great results.”
One of Affordable Fuels’ key customers, a contract school transportation company in Central Pennsylvania has seen a nearly 15 percent improvement in its fleet fuel efficiency. Another customer, a regional trucking transport operator saw nearly a mile per gallon improvement in its equipment after incorporating Simeon Fuel with The Fuel Ox.
“Simeon Fuel is a perfect example of how The Fuel Ox can help distributors like Affordable Fuels deliver great value and enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty,” said Rand Taylor, president of Fuel Ox LLC. “Whether it’s a family trying to stretch its heating oil dollar during the thick of winter, a farmer trying to get the most performance out of a combine or a fleet owner looking for ways to reduce those fuel and maintenance line items, everyone can benefit from fuel enhanced with The Fuel Ox.”
