Diesel Fuel Additives – Improved Fuel Economy, Lower Emissions, Better DPF Regen Performance


The FBC is activated in the combustion cylinder under extremely high temperatures and pressures.  This results in the catalytic acceleration of the combustion reaction.  Simply put, the fuel molecules ignite earlier and burn faster during each power stroke of a piston. This results in more complete combustion or a “cleaner burn” prior to the exhaust valve opening.  Harmful emissions, e.g., carbon monoxide, un-burned hydrocarbon, and diesel particulate matter (soot and smoke) in the exhaust are greatly lowered.  The effect of lowered soot loads through the engine and exhaust system translates to less fouling of components including the DPF, EGR, DOC, exhaust sensors, “doser” valve, and exhaust turbo-charger.  Less engine wear results from soot particles being recirculated back into the air intake manifold via the EGR valve.  Soot levels in engine oil are lowered.

The more fuel that can be burned prior to the completion of the power stroke, the better the end result of emissions reduction and improved fuel economy. This is accomplished in engines that are conditioned with FBC. Correspondingly in-cylinder pressure develops faster which is the key to improving fuel economy. Engine Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGT) have been measured to be approx. 40 – 50 degrees lower when using fuel treated with FBC than without. This benefit lowers the production of NOx emissions and decreases the demands of DEF usage by the SCR system.

With consistent use the FBC gradually cleans both the engine and exhaust-side components of carbon build-up. Carbon deposits ignite at a much lower temperature with use of the FBC. This results in the “cleaning effect” that is typically observed on components such as the EGR, DOC, DPF, sensors, and turbochargers.

It is through these combined effects of enhanced fuel combustion and lowered carbon burn-out temperature that the on-going use of FBC additives eliminate many of the common maintenance issues associated with engines and exhaust after-treatment (DPF/DEF emissions) systems.

Better Diesel FBC provides additional benefits for maintaining fuel injectors at optimal performance.

Better Diesel FBC is registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
