Fuel Additive (AFC)

AFC is a unique and powerful line of broad-spectrum fuel additives formulated for hydrocarbon-based fuels (i.g. diesel, bio-diesel, gasoline, kerosene, and heavy fuel oil). The AFC formulas are intended for regular use and work to decontaminate and clean an engine’s entire fuel system while improving combustion and overall power output and efficiency. In addition to a combustion catalyst, our formulas differentiate to provide a wider range of benefits specific to individual use cases such as the addition of an anti-gelling agent for freezing temperatures.

Combustion Catalyst

All AFC formulas include a powerful combustion improver to help engines get more energy out of every drop of fuel. 

Fuel Stabilizer

Each formula features a fuel stabilizer which works to stabilize and prevent oxidation of the fuel for up to 12 months.

Corrosion Inhibitor

All formulas work to form a protective barrier on the tank walls to protect against corrosive agents.

Lubricity Enhancer

Most AFC formulas feature a lubricity enhancer to extend the life of the engine by reducing wear on moving parts.

Additive Ingredients:

Combustion Catalyst

Increases horsepower, improves fuel economy, lowers exhaust emissions, remove/prevents carbon deposit buildup

How it works:

The combustion catalyst binds to the hydrocarbon molecules in the fuel and weakens the bonds needed to be broken for energy during the combustion process. By weakening these bonds, more fuel is burnt during each engine stroke that would have otherwise been sent out the exhaust as emissions or contributed to carbon deposit buildup in the engine. In achieving a more complete burn of the fuel, more energy is extracted per drop leading to an increase in power and improved fuel economy. 

Fuel Stabilizer

Stabilizes fuel up to 12 months, maintaining fuel quality for longer periods of time, eliminating the need to drain fuel before storage​

How it works:

Fuel instability results in the formation of harmful particulate that can damage injection systems and clog filters. The fuel stabilizer prevents instability by interrupting a chain of reactions that often leads to the formation of particulate. This is achieved through the addition of anti-oxidants that actively combat oxidation, a chemical reaction that occurs when small amounts of dissolved oxygen reacts with the fuel often leading to fuel instability.

Corrosion Inhibitor

Prevents the development of corrosion in the fuel tank and engine to reduce maintenance and increase overall longevity​

How it works:

Corrosion can occur in the fuel tank and corresponding plumbing when water present in the fuel reacts with the metal to form rust. To prevent this, corrosion inhibiting compounds attach to the metal surfaces and form a protective barrier, preventing the effects of corrosive agents.

Lubricity Enhancer*

Extends engine life by reducing wear on moving parts through the addition of lubrication compounds in the fuel

How it works:

The lubricity enhancer contains polar molecules that bind to the metallic surfaces of the engine components to form a thin surface film. This film acts as lubricant when two metal surfaces come into contact. By virtue of lubrication, the lubricity enhancer reduces wear, extending the life of engine components.

Dispersant*

Enhances breakdown of fuel contaminants such as sludge that develop in the tank

How it works:

Unlike a fuel stabilizer that aims to prevent the formation of fuel contaminants, a dispersant works to keep these particulates from clustering into larger clumps that can plug fuel filters and injector tips. By the same mechanism, dispersants can also help breakdown clusters of particulate that have already formed making it a good reactionary measure for contaminated tanks.

Surfactant*

Emulsifies water to inhibit the proliferation of microbial ("algae") contamination in the fuel

How it works:

Surfactants consist of polar compounds that actively emulsify or “pull” separated water molecules into the fuel. By effect, water molecules will remain in solution to later be sent through the engine and safely out the exhaust (in non tier-4 engines). By keeping the water from separating below the fuel you prevent favorable conditions for microbial growth.

Anti-Gelling Agent*

Prevents the gelling of fuel in freezing temperatures

How it works:

The anti-gelling agent works by lowering the fuel’s pour point and cloud point to improve its cold weather properties.
