Both gas and diesel can begin to degrade in three weeks, In fact, with today’s Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel it can become unusable within one year while biodiesel blends have a lifespan of only half of that. Degraded fuel can be identified as dark or murky fuel, slimy filters, sludge buildup, floating particles in the tank, as well as an increase of smoke and soot. Water accelerates the degradation process as it initiates the process of phase separation in gasoline. Also, the hot temperatures in the high pressure rail systems can also degrade fuel through asphaltene contamination as it is returned to the tank. With bad fuel, comes corroded fuel injectors, clogged filters, an increase of emissions, loss of power and lower RPMs, even engine failure.
Fuel Ox® contains stabilizers to protect both gas and diesel from degrading and becoming unusable.In addition, Fuel Ox® protects against corrosion, removes water, contains detergents, and replenishes the missing lubricity found in today’s Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel.
