Is there a cost effective solution to help industry meet environmental regulations and relieve skyrocketing gas prices? Hundreds of millions of miles of road tests has proven that commercial fleets on average increase gas mileage between 7% and 19% and reduce emissions by more than 30%. Commercial fleets in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Latin America, Asia and Europe could benefit from fuel additives. But the trick is to find a non-toxic, non-hazardous and works with any fuel used in car, trucks, buses, RV's, ships, trains and generators. We need a product that reduces fuel costs by producing a net gain in mileage above cost. We need a product that contains two families of esters, a group of cleaning esters and a group of lubricating esters in a mineral oil base.
A product that cleans and lubricates the internal parts of the engine without the use of petroleum-derived products commonly found in fuel additives. The main objective is to make fuels self-cleaning and self-lubricating without increasing toxic emissions. Moving parts function more smoothly with reduced heat and friction, requiring less maintenance. Horsepower returns closer to the manufacturer specifications. If we could find a product that removes carbon deposits, one of the culprits that cause fuel to combust incompletely, resulting in wasted fuel that creates toxic emissions we would all win.
The combination of cleaning and lubricating esters would stabilize the fuel without changing its specifications. The overall result of a product if we found it would make engines combust fuel more completely. When an engine uses each measure of fuel to the maximum degree possible, it has two very important benefits. It reduces fuel consumption and reduces non-combusted residues that an engine expels in the form of exhaust emissions, such as hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, particulate matter and other harmful products of combustion. Unused fuel is saved in the fuel tank, waiting to be used efficiently by the engine, instead of exhausted in the form of toxic emissions. We need a product that reduces emissions without adding any of its own components to the exhaust since it is 99.
99976% ash less upon combustion and it is not derived from petroleum. While the debate on emissions reduction solutions continues, a non-toxic safe product would make a difference in cleaning the air today. Improved and accessible technology to measure diesel engine emissions is still in development. The change from diesel to alternative fuels has become more controversial as research shows that natural gas may be more hazardous.
Particulate matter is reduced to a micro size, making it easier to assimilate by humans. Acquisition and operating costs associated with alternative fuels has slowed down widespread implementation. A product must be found that is a unique blend of esters that reduces emissions and implementation is economical, therefore continued use is sustainable as well as safe. If we found this product we would have the preferred choice to reduce emissions and form part in any alternative fuel program. Not only would we save at the gas pump but have much better gas mileage too.
