A Note From Our President About Additive
Our experience shows that Additives can only help improve the quality of today’s diesel fuel and therefore the life of the diesel fuel injection components we rebuild. As Diesel Experts, it is incumbent upon us to relay this information to our customers.
The old policy of “no additive” was good 15 to 20 years ago when the refining and blending process produced a higher quality fuel. However, those days are behind us.
Technically speaking, diesel fuel is now ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel – and while that does not necessarily make the fuel bad, the process of hydrogenating the fuel to remove the sulfur reduces its lubricity substantially and enhances its emulsification of water. Both the lack of lubricity and the introduction of water are the leading cause of pump & injector failure.
Today, Diesel fuel is blended with a minimum of 5% biodiesel (B5) or 20% biodiesel (B20). While this adds back some of the lubricity, it also substantially increases the amount of water content that can “hide” in the fuel. Biodiesel will lower both the energy of the fuel and the Cetane. Biodiesel also leaves behind fuel deposits in the fuel system, another contributing issue to poor performance or failure if left untreated.
Finally, diesel fuel Cetane requirements are now down to 40 versus the 44 of years ago. Our customers would be lucky to find fuel on the open market with a 40 Cetane rating.
Diesel fuel additives address all of the issues noted above. UltraGuard, Stanadyne and FPPF both enhance lubricity and Cetane – and in different ways, address the emulsification issue.
