Diesel Performance Additives in Light Duty Vehicles

Enhancing performance in fuel economy, power, and acceleration

In recent years, the diesel fuel and engine landscapes have changed considerably.  Sulfur levels have been reduced globally to enable implementation of advanced exhaust treatment systems that significantly reduce vehicle emissions. OEMs have turned to new generations of engine platforms to improve performance and lower emissions, leading to injection systems with higher pressures, higher temperatures, and lower clearances.  

With the proliferation of Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) and the widespread use of High-Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) injection systems, a new generation of issues can negatively impact diesel engine and fuel system performance.   Light-duty diesel performance additives clean and protect vital fuel-system components to help heavy-duty vehicle and equipment engines maintain design performance over the years and miles. 

Our diesel performance additives enhance performance in key areas such as fuel economy, power, and acceleration, while also helping to reduce emissions to protect the environment.  By providing vital whole engine system protection, they also minimize vehicle and equipment downtime.
