Old Fuel =Less Power, More Gum & Varnish
Petroleum based fuels are mixed with additives during the refining process – more and more compounds are added as fuels are reformulated to meet government mandates to lower pollution levels. Unfortunately, the additives and processing used to make these new fuels burn more cleanly also makes them less stable. Diesel fuel begins to deteriorate and loose power after 90 days, and the structure of E-10 gasoline begins to breaks down after 30 days. As fuel ages solids and varnishes form that can clog the fuel lines and system. In addition, old fuel often contains water contamination.
K100 Treatments contain stabilizers that hold petroleum compounds together to keep the fuel fresh, cleaners to dissolve gums and varnish, and burnable organic compounds that encapsulate free water. K100′s unique chemistry will even “fix” equipment that has been sitting a while and doesn’t start – or runs roughly – by doubling the treatment, turning the engine over enough times to get the treated fuel throughout the system, and waiting 1/2 hour for the treatment to take effect.
