HiTEC® 6455 additive continues to perform when blended into E85, E10, E5 and E3.

HiTEC® 6455 additive demonstrates excellent corrosion protection throughout the supply chain as demonstrated by:
  • NACE modification TM-0172-2001
  • ASTM D655A
Benefits include:
  • Maintains engine performance by not contributing to Inlet Valve Deposits (IVD)
  • EPA registered
  • Fully compatible with conventional gasoline  additives
  • Approved by the Renewable Fuels Association -
    • Fuel Ethanol Guidelines, Specifications and Procedures #960501

Recommended Dosage

The recommended treat-rate for HiTEC® 6455 additive is 10 PTBE (30 ppmv) in neat ethanol (E100). This dosage will give excellent protection in fuel grade ethanol or gasoline blends down to E3.
