Welcome Fuel Solutions for Todays Modern Fuels NEW FUELS NEW RULES
Bio-Fuel History Oxygenated Fuel MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments Energy Policy Act of billion gallons by billion gallons by billion gallons by 2012
EPA Approves E-15 Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 bio-fuel requirement Billion gallon Billion gallon E-15 gasoline approved for 2001 and newer cars and light trucks 70 to 80% of all vehicles on the road E-20 a possibility??? B-20 a possibility??? EPA E-15 Mock-up Warning Label
EPA Diesel Fuel Legislation The cleaner diesel fuel program reduces sulfur content, Provides immediate health benefits allows engine manufacturers to begin using advanced emissions control systems that further reduce harmful emissions. The diesel program regulations are located in 40 CFR Part 80 subpart I. Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) is 15 parts per million (ppm) sulfur specification Phased in for highway diesel fuel from Emissions will be reduced by more than 90%. Diesel engines equipped with advanced emission control devices (generally, 2007 and later model years) must use highway ULSD fuel. Low sulfur (500 ppm) and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel will be phased in for non-road, locomotive, and marine (NRLM) engines from These fuel requirements, coupled with advanced emission control technologies, will decrease
Why Is Ethanol So Bad? Deteriorates rubber, plastic& fiberglass Attracts Water Causes gasoline to prematurely decompose
Ethanol Damage Damaged plastic and rubber fuel system components, particularly in older power equipment not designed to tolerate ethanol. The primer line & return lines are brittle causing fuel to leak and the fuel lines to disintegrate form ethanol
Ethanol Phase Separation Severe phase separation creating the severe corrosion This carburetor must be replaced
Engine Failure from Varnished / Stale Fuel Engine ran on marginal fuel Hard to start Low power. Gummed all of the internal components Sticking the rings
Phase Separation Damage Bottom clear layer is mostly ethanol Piston seized running on the phase separated fuel to the left Phase Separated gasoline
Problems With Modern Diesel Fuels Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel 97% less sulfur Reduced lubrication Higher amounts of water Cold weather freezing Clogged fuel injectors Damaged injector pumps
Symptoms of Contaminated Fuel If you have experienced the following issues, chances are they are caused by contaminated fuel. Frequent diesel particulate filter (DPF) burns Clogged and slimy filters Dark, hazy fuel Sludge build up in tanks Loss of power and rpm Excess smoke Corroded, pitted injectors Turbo trouble Injector pump failure
Water Creates Microbe Growth Poor Fuel Efficiency
Diesel Contamination Types Biofilms Asphaltines Gums and other organic contaminants Wax Sludge Other particles
USLD = Year Round Maintenance Fuel Filter on the left clogged in only 10,000 miles NEW Clogged
Clogged Diesel Particulate Filter Clogged Clean If not attended to the DPF will need to be removed and cleaned EXPENSIVE PROCESS !
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valves are part of the emissions system The purpose of the EGR is to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. Dirty exhaust will prevent the EGR from operating properly The EGR can be stuck in any position which will affect how efficiently the fuel will burn By using Diesel Mechanic in a Bottle, the fuel will burn cleaner thus keeping the EGR valve working properly for a longer period of time.
Bio-Diesel Blend Facts 5-7% Less BTU Biodegradable Prone to fuel fouling Absorbs 10 X more water Corrodes fuel system components Harmful to rubber and plastic Acts as a solvent Gelling in cold weather
Failures Due to Marginal Fuel = =
Multi Purpose Ethanol Fuel Stabilizer Remove water to prevent Phase Separation Protect the rubber & plastic components from ethanol Stabilize the gasoline to ensure quick starting and prevent stale fuel
Burn Test X Y Z After burning, a synthetic lubricant is left to lubricate the combustion chamber components Most competitors products burn incompletely and erratically Ethanol Shield burns clean and vaporizes the termolecular hydrogen bonded water molecu le
Rubber Conditioners PIC Not Protected Extreme Testing E-85 Protected!
Extreme Protection! ½ E-85 ½ Water Not Protected Protected! Over 1 Year in solution
Testing Non Ethanol Shield has carbon build up at 38 hours, theoretically 50 hours should have more carbon build up Ethanol Shield unit kept the exhaust port clear at 50 hours
Fix the fuel system & deep clean the carburetor without removal, even on non-running engines Revitalize old fuel and delicate fuel system components safely Cleanse power robbing carbon deposits from the engines internal components Fuel System Fix All
1983 Chipper Gasket Revitalization Bowl Drain Gasket Bowl Gasket O Ring These original rubber components were rejuvenated by the MIB! Before the test they were hard and dried out.
Fix the fuel system by cleaning it thoroughly and rejuvenating the delicate components Protect & Prevent the fuel system from algae growth & remove water to prevent damage Stabilize the fuel from decaying in storage & prevent gelling in cold weather
Increases Cetane by 2-3 points Reducing emissions High Temperature Detergent Upper cylinder lubricity Replaces lost lubrication from ULSD Water encapsulation Fuel Stabilization Corrosion protection Does NOT Contain Petroleum Distillates
Tar Like Deposits AB Synthetic Lubricant! Diesel Burn Test
FUEL HYGIENE Where does fuel hygiene start? It starts by knowing…. Use fresh fuel Purchase from a reputable source Use a fuel additive to protect your fuel system & extend the life of the fuel Test your fuel Test your fuel Water / fuel clarity Bio-Diesel Acid
