1 Fuel Solutions for Today’s Modern Fuels
Welcome Fuel Solutions for Today’s Modern Fuels NEW FUELS NEW RULES

2 (methyl tertiary-butyl ether)
Bio-Fuel History 1980 Oxygenated Fuel MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether) 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments Energy Policy Act of 2005 4 billion gallons by 2006 6.1 billion gallons by 2009 7.5 billion gallons by 2012 Energy Policy Act of 2005 Increases the amount of biofuel (usually ethanol) that must be mixed with gasoline sold in the United States to 4 billion gallons by 2006, 6.1 billion gallons by 2009 and 7.5 billion gallons by 2012;[1]

3 EPA Approves E-15 Energy Independence & Security Act of bio-fuel requirement 12.95 Billion gallon 2010 36 Billion gallon 2022 2010 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

4 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

5 Ethanol Issues

6 Why Is Ethanol So Bad? Deteriorates rubber, plastic& fiberglass
Attracts Water Causes gasoline to prematurely decompose

7 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

8 Ethanol Phase Separation
Severe phase separation creating the severe corrosion This carburetor must be replaced

9 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

10 Phase Separation Damage
Phase Separated gasoline Bottom clear layer is mostly ethanol Piston seized running on the phase separated fuel to the left

11 Diesel Issues

12 Problems With Modern Diesel Fuels
Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel % less sulfur Reduced lubrication Higher amounts of water Cold weather freezing Clogged fuel injectors Damaged injector pumps

13 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

14 Water Creates Microbe Growth
Poor Fuel Efficiency

15 Diesel Contamination Types
Diesel bug Bacteria Mold Yeast

16 Diesel Contamination Types
Biofilms Asphaltines Gums and other organic contaminants Wax Sludge Other particles

17 USLD = Year Round Maintenance
Clogged NEW Fuel Filter on the left clogged in only 10,000 miles

18 Clogged Diesel Particulate Filter
Clean If not attended to the DPF will need to be removed and cleaned EXPENSIVE PROCESS!

19 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.

20 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

21 Failures Due to Marginal Fuel
= Manufactures will deny engine/fuel related warranty claims if the engine was ran on marginal fuel USE Ethanol Shield to Prevent and MIB to repair marginal fuel and repair shops utilize Professional Strength MIB for speedy non-invasive repair INCREASE Productivity increasing =


23 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 Synthetic, not made from petroleum distillates Good for all typed of fuel systems (carb, Fuel injection) Will not harm any plastic, rubber, fiberglass, foam or gasket materials

24 Burn Test X Y Z Most competitor’s products burn incompletely and erratically Ethanol Shield burns clean and vaporizes the termolecular hydrogen bonded water molecule After burning, a synthetic lubricant is left to lubricate the combustion chamber components

25 Rubber Conditioners PIC Protected! “Extreme Testing E-85”
Not Protected

26 Extreme Protection! Protected! ½ E-85 ½ Water Over 1 Year in solution
Not Protected

27 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

28 Revitalize old fuel and delicate fuel system components safely
Fuel System Fix All 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 engine’s internal components

29 After Before

30 1983 Chipper Gasket Revitalization
Bowl Drain Gasket Bowl Gasket “O” Ring The brittle and dried out rubber components were unharmed from Mechanic in a Bottle. The rubber conditioners in Mechanic In A Bottle revitalized them returning them to their original shape. These original rubber components were rejuvenated by the MIB! Before the test they were hard and dried out.

31 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

32 Replaces lost lubrication from ULSD
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

33 Diesel Burn Test Tar Like Deposits Synthetic Lubricant! A B



36 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 Water / fuel clarity Bio-Diesel Acid
