Total Power fuel additives
2. For 2010, engine manufacturers will recommend a new standard of 2% or less power loss. So how will companies meet this standard if the fuel is causing the drop?
3. A company can hire a firm to conduct a “Quick Purge”. This is a process whereby the company pulls the tractor off the road for a day and runs chemicals through out the engine to clean out deposits. This is the most costly process. We’re getting an exact cost but just the loss from the downtime is $2, 500 per day plus the cost of chemicals and manpower.
4. Some companies blend #1 diesel with #2 fuels. This is not only expensive but #1 is Kerosene and has a lower BTU content than #2 diesel fuel which results in a decrease in engine power and fuel economy. Kerosene has an average BTU content of approximately 133, 500 BTU per gallon and #2 diesel fuel has an average BTU content of approximately 139, 500 BTU per gallon.
5. So the most cost effective way to clean the deposits and restore power and BTU’s is via additives. But this is difficult to prove unless you know how to conduct a proper test.
