GO FOR THE LONG HAUL
In the trucking and transportation industries, both buses and trucks have long routes, short routes, light loads, heavy loads — but one thing they all have in common is that their engines all have the same issues. They all build up deposits of carbon, have fouled injectors, increased emissions, and go through annoying regenerations. Not to mention the amount of diesel that these hefty vehicles guzzle, creating poor fuel economy.
The consistent use of these vehicles combined with today’s Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel and bio-diesel blends can cause an array of issues that can cause significant damage to engines and cost your business time, money, and clients.
It’s no question that in the diesel world, fuel additives are fundamental for a smooth operating vehicle.GET A CONSULTATION
NOT YOUR AVERAGE FUEL TREATMENT
Fuel Ox™ fuel treatments protect and prevent common fuel related issues. These military grade additives are highly concentrated and improve combustion and overall engine performance.
Fuel Ox™ contains a unique catalyst allows for the fuel to combust 200°F lower than the normal combustion point and burn at a longer rate. The result: a cleaner and more productive combustion of your fuel. The cleaner combustion provides less buildup of soot in your diesel particulate filter which means less regenerations, a cleaner burn of fuel and a significant reduction in exhaust emissions.

Problems With Trucking, Transportation, & Diesel
Diesel vehicles made after 2007 struggle with the dreaded regeneration cycle. Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) are a hassle; they slow you down, eat up your fuel, and create costly downtime. Fuel Ox is proven to reduce regens by improving combustion so that there are less unburnt hydrocarbons being expelled into the filter, resulting in less regenerations. Additionally because of the cleaner burn, your EGR valves remain much cleaner, too.
Fuel Ox™ contains a patented catalyst that ignites fuel at a lower temperature while prolonging the burn. Diesel burns cleaner and more productively. This thorough combustion allows for less buildup of soot which means less regens, less bakeouts, and less DPF replacements.
Getting the most out of your fuel becomes a priority with unpredictable trends in fuel pricing. With Fuel Ox™, you can be confident knowing your money will stay in your pocket, and out of the pump.
Fuel Ox™ contains a patented combustion catalyst that creates a more thorough burn of the fuel, resulting in about 7-10% better fuel economy.
This catalyst creates a more complete burn of the fuel, so the user is getting the most out of the fuel as possible. The less fuel that is wasted, the further a tank full of fuel will go. This also results in more power and responsiveness.
Water is the key component for initiating phase separation and corrosion, degrading the quality of fuel, or complete and total engine destruction.
Injecting water with fuel can cause your engine to cut out, create irregular idling, or produce gums, sludge, and varnishes which can cause injectors to malfunction.
Darkened fuel as well as black or white smoke can indicate a significant level of water in your fuel.
Fuel Ox™ is prepared to protect against water in your fuel and passing through the engine. It was designed with a demulsifier that will filter water out of fuel and disperse it into the engine’s racors, separators, or filters. Fuel Ox™ also contains anti-corrosive properties to protect against the corrosion from water from your fuel.
Most of today’s heavy duty engines employ a high pressure fuel injector system where pressures are routinely greater than 30,000 PSI. As the fuel passes through the engine, it is heated and the combination of this heat with the high pressure cooks the fuel and creates little pieces of tar approximately two microns in size — asphaltenes.
Asphaltenes can be identified by little black particles or discolored fuel or they can even create a black coating of sludge on your filters.
These asphaltenes can cause filters to plug, decrease fuel economy, and increase the need to clean and replace filters and injectors.
Fuel Ox Asphaltene has all of the same benefits of our flagship product, but it will also inhibit the formation of and break down any asphaltenes that have already formed in the fuel.
Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, or ULSD, refers to the process of removing the sulfur in diesel fuel.
While reducing the amount of sulfur in fuels does provide less expensive and “environmentally friendly” diesel, it has one major drawback: reducing the amount of sulfur reduces the lubrication necessary for an engine to function properly.
Sulfur is a natural lubricant when added to the fuel, promoting an efficient and smoothly operating fuel system.
However, removing the sulfur from diesel causes a significant decrease in the lubricity for injectors and upper cylinder heads, causing corrosion and wear on the pumps, and ironically an increase in emissions.
Fuel Ox™ replenishes lubricity that is lacking in today’s fuel.
Cold weather brings with it a threat to your fuel system. When the temperatures drop, diesel can become clouded and gel-like due to the paraffin wax found in diesel. This transition known as “cloud point” can cause the diesel to not combust as well while also plugging filters.
If the temperatures drop low enough, the fuel can hit it’s “pour point.” Diesel will freeze all together and no longer flow, becoming unusable until the fuel re-liquefies.
Fuel Ox Cold Charge™ has all of the same benefits as Fuel Ox, but will reduce the effects of wax by lowering the pour point by 15° – 20°F.
If you find yourself with already gelled or frozen fuel, Fuel Ox also offers an emergency diesel additive known as Fuel Ox Heat Bomb™, that will thaw and restore gelled or frozen fuel safely and efficiently.
