JKG Fuel Solutions Teams Up with California Environmental Solutions for a complete suite of DPF Services

We’ve got some exciting news to share with you.

We have teamed up with California Environmental Solutions (CES) to offer a complete suite of diesel particulate filter (DPF) services. With our newly formed alliance, diesel engine owners will experience every advantage of EnerBurn® along with a full-service DPF shop.

Currently specializing in engine diagnostics, DPF cleaning & repair, CES is a trusted provider of DPF services throughout the state of California.
EnerBurn is a fuel-borne catalyst treatment for diesel that improves combustion and reduces production of soot (diesel particulate matter) from the engine by up to 70 percent. This after-market, fuel treatment product is a natural fit for diesel repair shops specializing in DPF cleaning and repair services.

Owners of diesel engines equipped with DPF filters, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves, EGR coolers, turbo-chargers, and exhaust sensors already know how costly those systems are to diagnose and repair. Many of these component failures are caused by the accumulation of soot and carbon deposits which EnerBurn is proven to restore and prevent. EnerBurn should be part of your engine preventive maintenance plan.

Together, JKG Fuel Solutions and CES provide a one-stop DPF shop offering all the services necessary to keep you up and running – because we understand that downtime costs money. Even better, we come to you. Just ask about our mobile services unit and an initial computer diagnostic evaluation at no cost for new clients.

We look forward to serving you at our three California locations:

1) 1338 N. Melrose #D, Vista, CA 92083, ph: (855) 501-1005
2) 4830 Burr St. #E, Bakersfield, CA 93308, ph: (661) 201-8323
3) 24 Cielo Vista Rd., Belen, N. Mexico 87002, ph: (505) 362-2550

Less is more when it comes to Enerburn

We regularly get amazing feedback from our valued customers. It’s wonderful to hear your positive comments on how EnerBurn has improved the performance of your engine and/or diesel particulate filter regeneration.

Often we receive great questions as well. One such question was regarding the amount of EnerBurn recommended after the initial phase of treatment.

Q: Can I use less EnerBurn after the first 1 – 3 months treatment at 1 ounce per 20 gallons?

A: Yes, we recommend that you reduce the dose to a “maintenance” treatment of 1 ounce per 24 gallons for long-term use.

For the initial “clean-out and conditioning” phase we recommend one (1) ounce of EnerBurn® for every 20 gallons of diesel). Once this phase is complete, REDUCE THE DOSE according to the chart below to maintain the benefits of EnerBurn at an even lower cost per treated gallon.

After 500 hours of treatment, reduce the dose by up to 20% per the following:

Gallons of Fuel Ounces of EnerBurn
22 – 24 1.0
55 – 60 2.5
66 – 72 3.0
77 – 84 3.5
88 – 96 4.0
99 – 108 4.5
110 – 120 5.0
121 – 132 5.5
132 – 144 6.0

For bulk tanks the treat ratio for long-term use is 1:3000.

It is because of customers like you that our business continues to grow and we appreciate it so much. Please feel free to reach out to us with any comments, questions, or concerns; we’re always happy to hear from you. Call 612-209-3079 or email us via our contact form.

 

EnerBurn® and ash accumulation in diesel particulate filters (DPF)

When is the last time you tried to burn a rock?

EnerBurn is quickly becoming the most trusted product on the market for eliminating diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration issues caused by soot build up.  However, it is important for the end-user to understand that EnerBurn is not a substitute for performing regularly scheduled preventive maintenance on DPFs to remove ash — mineral deposits that are left behind from combusted diesel and/or engine motor oil.

Ash deposits slowly accumulate in the DPF filter over time, regardless of how much soot the engine is producing, and eventually render it ineffective in regenerating to remove soot as designed (unlike soot, ash is not combustible). At this point, the DPF has to be physically removed and baked at high temperatures to burn off the soot. Additionally, it should be blown out to remove the ash residue.

DPF and diesel engine original equipment manufacturers (or OEMs) typically recommend cleaning the DPFs to remove ash at an interval of 120,000 to 200,000 miles depending on the make and model of the engine.

The components of ash are typically iron (a common contaminant in diesel), calcium and zinc (typical additive ingredients found in most brands of engine motor oil).  These components do not combust, so, to better understand this, ask yourself: “When was the last time I tried to burn a rock?”  These metallic/mineral residues can only be removed by blowing out the filter with a high pressure air hose as is common to FSX cleaning systems (for details and shop locations visit http://fsxinc.com/).

How EnerBurn Works

Without EnerBurn, both soot and ash must be cleaned by a certified-DPF service shop more frequently than every 120,000 miles.  In addition, the bake-out operation to remove soot is typically an overnight job and adds to the cost of the DPF cleaning service.  The worst part is when the DPF is too fouled with soot to be restored by baking.  The cost for a replacement DPF can run anywhere from $2,500 to $4,500.  Compare this to the much lower cost for a simple blow-out cleaning to remove ash of $400 or less and you can see why so many engine owners and fleet managers rely on EnerBurn as an integral part of their preventive maintenance program.

When used in conjunction with OEM guidelines for recommended cleaning intervals, EnerBurn increases engine efficiency and productivity providing the end-user with a 1st year ROI of 300% – 500%.

EnerBurn FAQs Part 2

At JKG Fuel Solutions, we want to make sure you are equipped to get the most out of your EnerBurn, so here are the answers to even more of your frequently asked questions:

Gain Efficiencies with EnerBurn®

Q: Do I need to use a fuel lubricant additive?
A: No. EnerBurn is formulated with a fuel lubricant additive to extend the life of fuel injectors, fuel injector pumps, and other “upper cylinder” parts by reducing frictional forces that cause metal wear.

Q: Do I need to use a fuel stabilizer additive?
A: No. EnerBurn is formulated with a fuel stabilizer additive to prevent fouling of fuel injectors and fuel lines with solid fuel residues that otherwise will form at high temperatures and pressures.

Q: Should I treat stored bulk fuel with EnerBurn?
A: Yes. EnerBurn is formulated with a fuel stabilizer additive to prevent the chemical and microbial-induced degradation of diesel while it is being stored.

Q: Do I need to use a fuel anti-gelling additive in extreme cold weather?
A: Yes. EnerBurn does not contain an anti-gelling fuel additive. It is perfectly fine to mix EnerBurn with an anti-gel additive of your choice.

Q: Is EnerBurn a detergent?
A: No. EnerBurn is not a detergent-based additive nor does it contain dispersants or surfactants of any kind.

Q: Will EnerBurn harm my engine?
A: Absolutely not. EnerBurn will help your engine run more efficiently.  This is the key to preventing component failures and repair problems down the road.

Q: Will use of EnerBurn void my original engine manufacturer (OEM) engine warranty?
A: No. See our blog post on this topic for more information.

Q: Is EnerBurn safe for long-term use?
A: Yes. EnerBurn has been rigorously tested in over-the-road fleets over billions of road miles to determine its effectiveness and safety for long-term use in diesel engines.

Q: Do I need to have my DPF cleaned before using EnerBurn?
A: Yes. this is recommended, especially if you have driven more than 200,000 miles since the last DPF cleaning or if you cannot verify the last time the DPF was cleaned properly.

Q: How do I ensure that my DPF has been cleaned properly before using EnerBurn?
A: Refer to EnerBurn User Instructions or contact us for more information.

Q: My engine oil stays much cleaner using EnerBurn, does this mean I can change the oil less often?
A: Yes. This is another value-added benefit of EnerBurn.  Instead of having the oil changed, take a sample and get it analyzed.  If the oil analysis report comes back “all clear”, then you can extend the oil change interval accordingly.

  1. How do I order EnerBurn?
