Drivers Share Tangible Results with EnerBurn
Owner-operators and small fleets are just some of the transport businesses who are enjoying the benefits of EnerBurn®. EnerBurn is a diesel fuel performance catalyst that is fast becoming a trusted, market-based solution for Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) clogging and “regen” issues.
The maintenance costs and down-time associated with DPF cleaning and regeneration are garnering a lot of attention, especially in the used truck engine market. It is in this arena that EnerBurn really shines. EnerBurn is unlike other diesel treatments available today in that its advertising claims are fully validated by third-party engine tests. The following selection of EnerBurn “success
stories” have been shared by drivers just like you…
Nate owns a 2015 Kenworth truck with a Cummins engine and purchased EnerBurn in hopes of preventing future DPF issues. After the first 3,000 miles of treatment Nate took the truck to a Cummins dealer to read the ECM. The DPF back pressure reading had dropped from 1.5 to 0.4 since using EnerBurn. After 6 weeks of continual use of EnerBurn, Nate also noticed more power, less engine oil consumption, and the engine oil was staying cleaner longer. In Nate’s words, he was “very impressed with the product”.
Kevin is an owner-operator who used EnerBurn to bring his 2009 Kenworth with a Cummins engine “back from the brink”. The truck was purchased used in 2014 with one million miles. Shortly thereafter, Kevin started having regen problems. When the DPF dashboard light came on Kevin took the truck to the Kenworth dealer; the clogged filter was found to also have hairline cracks. The price quoted to replace it was $4,000. That’s when a friend told Kevin about EnerBurn. After using EnerBurn for 18 days, Kevin reported his regen issues had been completely eliminated and the engine was idling smoother. After 8 weeks’ continual use of EnerBurn, Kevin had no new DPF regen issues to report and his average MPG had noticeably improved. As a previous fleet services manager, Kevin had encountered many after-market products and had never seen a “fuel additive” produce this kind of result.
Don owns a rig outfitted with a 2010 Caterpillar C15 engine. Don has a governor on his engine that caps his max speed at 65 mph, thus reducing variation of fuel consumption. Over the first 70,000 miles of using EnerBurn, Don documented savings of $3,300 in diesel fuel. This figure doubles with the avoided expenses and down-time related to DPF cleaning and ARD head replacement. Don’s cost for EnerBurn over the same 70,000 mile treatment period was $1,200 or $0.017 per mile. Don is very happy with the extra money he keeps from his business.
My engine is running like new within one week of using EnerBurn…
“Engine performance is most important to me. My 2012, DD15 465 hp engine runs like new since I started treating my diesel fuel with EnerBurn one week ago. I was looking for a fuel treatment product that would prevent the pre-mature failures of the EGR/DPF/SCR components when I found EnerBurn®. I am now confident that those components are staying free of soot build-up. But the dramatic improvement in acceleration and my truck’s ability to maintain 75 MPH while topping a 5-mile long hill at 3% grade loaded to 77,000 lbs GVW are making driving fun again.”
Randy Morton, owner operator
EnerBurn is an excellent product, my results are beyond outstanding…
“EnerBurn is improving the cash flow of my business. The fuel economy of my 2016, DD15 has gradually increased from just above 6 MPG to just under 8 MPG in the first month based on the ECM dashboard readout. I am also using less DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid). My DPF was having to regen after idling overnight every night; now I can go 7 nights between regen’s.
I was going to try to trade this truck at the earliest opportunity, now I am planning to keep it for at least 5 years.”
Pedro Fuentes, owner operator
Disclaimer for Driver-reported results for improved MPG:
Individual results for improved fuel economy with the proper use of EnerBurn will vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on variations in uncontrollable factors that contribute to the use of more or less fuel. These include variables such as road speed, wind, external temperature, road grade, seasonal variations in fuel, fuel type, trailer weight, engine gear ratios, and driving style.

No more “hot exhaust gas lights” on Cummins….
“I have been using Enerburn for 18 months. The first 6 months was in a 2008 Peterbilt 389 with a Cummins, and the last 12 months in a 2012 KW T-660 with a Cummins. I began using Enerburn because of the constant Regen issues my truck was having. While I did get increased fuel economy, that was not the reason I started using Enerburn.
Within 7-10 days I no longer had the “hot exhaust gas light” come on every time I stopped, so I knew the truck was not wasting fuel with an active regen while I drove. After an additional 6-8 weeks using Enerburn the power, fuel economy, and performance of my truck was better than brand new!
I have not had a parked regen in 8 months, and like many other drivers I get 1-1.5 MPG better than without Enerburn. I want to say that if Enerburn did nothing to improve my MPG that I would still use it because I can budget for bad fuel economy but I can’t budget for a tow bill and a visit to the dealer for a forced regen!
As an O/O I no longer worry about Regen issues. I can drive like I don’t have a DPF and not worry about spending thousands of dollars on DPF related repairs.
Long Haul Trucking
Enerburn made a big difference in my 2011 International MF-13
I was having to do a parked regen after every 800 miles or so. I started adding EnerBurn at 358,773 miles. The next parked regen was required 398 miles later at 359,171 after 14 hours idle, then 3,404 miles later at 362,575 after 11 hours idle and that was the last parked regen required so far. My odometer shows now 370,817, another 8,242 miles and counting. I’m doing fracking in West Texas so on average I’m using PTO about 1 1/2 hours per day and with high temperatures a lot of idling to keep cool. Can’t tell about the fuel milage due to differences to longer hours of idle and different terrain I’m working at.
The EnerBurn so far made big difference and I’m loving it.
I would like to add, right before l started to use it, for a week l had code recurring regen problems. I was told to leave the truck at dealership to check the problem, instead l started using EnerBurn and two days later code light went away and never come back so far.
Thanks for everything,
My 2009 Cat has regened only twice over last 29,000 miles with Enerburn…
My 2009 Caterpillar engine had over 968,000 miles and was recently rebuilt when I started using Enerburn. I started out with a clean DPF and a new ARD head. The first thing I noticed was a smoother, quieter engine and better engine performance, then the MPG started to increase from 6.3 to 7.6 by the end of the first two months of using Enerburn. I am now seeing 8.0 mpg for the first time ever on this truck and have had to do only 2 manual regens in the last 29,000 miles since using Enerburn. My fuel savings is 4X the cost of Enerburn over this same period.
I’ve been using EnerBurn in my trucks for over 1 year…
I drive a 2012 Mack, 13L MP-8 engine short haul for 12 hours a day under the worst possible conditions; at low speeds with lots of stop and go. Before Enerburn the truck regen interval was every 4 days. Within the first month that dropped to once every 4 weeks. My truck hasn’t called for a regen for the last 5 months of continuous use of Enerburn.
My other truck is a 2013 International, MF-13 that runs long haul. The regen interval has gone from 1-2 times per day to once per week. The DPF was removed and inspected after around 6 months of continuous use of Enerburn. The mechanic was amazed at how clean it was. I recommend EnerBurn to others.

We are 100 percent satisfied with EnerBurn…
Our fleet of 2012, 2014, and 2016 Freightliners with Cummins ISL engines runs mostly short haul deliveries. Before finding out about EnerBurn we were having to call Freightliner mobile service out for assisted regen’s about once per week. It’s now been six months and we have yet to experience any repeat issues with the engines or DPF exhaust systems. We are 100% satisfied with EnerBurn.

Detroit Diesel gave my 2015 DD15 engine a clean bill of health”
“I own a 2015 Freightliner Cascadia and have been using EnerBurn since April 2016. The initial odometer reading was 243,000 miles and the engine oil had just been changed. After the first 20,000 miles of using EnerBurn the engine was running like new. I also noticed that the coolant temperature was 9-10 degrees lower and the oil from the next oil change was much cleaner. The engine went from using half a gallon of oil between changes to none at all. At 310,000 miles, some 67,000 miles later the Certified Detroit Diesel service shop inspected the engine, DPF, and related components and said the system was remarkably clean and free of soot. They gave the engine a clean bill of health and said it looked like a brand new engine.”

EnerBurn, I love it…
“I have a small contracting company that uses back hoes, bull-dozers and heavy duty pick-up trucks. EnerBurn is giving the earth-moving equipment more power and keeping the fuel filters from clogging. The Ford F-450 and GMC DuraMax pick-ups are getting 2 more MPG over baseline. I love the stuff and recommend to others.”
Until EnerBurn I had tried everything…
I purchased my 2012 IH Prostar with a MF-13 engine at 300,000 miles in June 2015. The DPF was constantly calling for a parked regeneration. At 350,000 miles I had the DPF cleaned and the back-pressure sensors replaced in hopes of improving the DPF regen performance. I had to use personal savings to pay for these costly repairs. Four months later I was having to manually regenerate the DPF every 300 – 350 miles. I tried another Brand Name fuel additive product and it did not help much. Then I found out about EnerBurn and was very interested to also try it. After I started treating my fuel with EnerBurn at the recommended dose I went ~950 miles before the next regen was indicated by the dash board light. Now I am at 3,450 miles and counting.
I pick-up and deliver loads to the Port of Baltimore and my runs range from short-haul to long-haul; if I don’t cover 250 to 300 miles per day, I cannot turn enough loads to make money, so not having to stop to do any manual or parked regens means a lot for my business. I am now making enough to pay myself back for the DPF repairs and still have something leftover.
Thank you, Jane at JKG Fuel Solutions, for helping me with EnerBurn.

My new 2016 Mack runs better with EnerBurn
I purchased my new 2016 Mack truck and started using EnerBurn at 7,000 miles. Now the truck is at 33,000 miles & is running good, it runs better with EnerBurn.

Hello anyone with an RV using diesel
I have been using the Enerburn product for about a year now. Even though I don’t run the RV as many miles as a typical trucker, it didn’t take long to realize that the product lived up to it’s name. In checking my mileage on a trip from Minnesota to Florida and back I found that on average I was getting somewhere between 1 to 2 miles per gallon better than before using Enerburn. This in itself was a good reason to use it. However what made it worth my using was the handy container it came in. Generally when driving my RV I’m not in the mood for getting my hands dirty. Also, unlike the larger tanks on trucks, I only hold about 20 gallons. The bottle it comes in makes it very convenient to dispense. Simply squeeze the bottle to put the desired quantity in the reservoir, open the cap, and pour it in. It was so clean that I was able to keep the bottle in the door pocket for convenient access in filling up. No mess, no smell, just works!

Attention Diesel Pick-up Truck Owners…
“I am very happy with EnerBurn – it’s been like a miracle drug for my 2015 Ford F250 6.7L PowerStroke diesel pick-up truck.
I drive ~700 miles per week, my fuel economy is up to 16 MPG, an increase of 20%. The DPF regen frequency has dropped from every other day to once per week. I definitely recommend the product”

At 430,000 miles my Cummins engine was “clean as a whistle”…
“I started using EnerBurn® in summer of 2015 when the engine was at ~200,000 miles. I just had the overhead done on my 2012 Freightliner DD15 engine at ~430,000 miles. The engine mechanic reported that only minor adjustments in the valves were needed and that the engine was “clean as a whistle”. Also the original DPF lasted until 380,000 miles, much longer than I expected. I will continue to use EnerBurn in this truck”
Good news from the SS Legacy
“We have been using diesel treated with EnerBurn for 1 year in the SS Legacy equipped with twin Caterpillar 3512A engines. Running upstream in run-off swollen Columbia River at 85% engine rated HP at 4.5 knots we are very pleased with the fuel economy from both engines at 62 GPH. The Cat engines run smooth, the engine oil is clean, the crank case is clean. There is no visible soot from the stack, only the “heat signature” – this aspect is very important to us as an environmentally conscious adventure cruise line.”

“It’s good stuff”
“My 2012 Ford PowerStroke diesel pick-up truck has pep like when it was new after the first 10 ounces of Enerburn (200 gallons treated). The engine was running sluggish at 140,000 miles. I can already tell that the exhaust system is cleaner, my mileage is better, and I am using less DEF fluid. It’s made a world of difference. I intend to keep using the product and recommend to other diesel pick-up truck owners.”

“thanks for the product”
“I have a 2012 Kenworth T660, Paccar motor that was at ~637,000 miles when I started using Enerburn. After ~3,000 miles or 685 gallons of treated diesel it is already cleaning out my tanks and exhaust system. The loaded mileage has improved and my unloaded mileage has improved as well. Just want to say thanks so far for the product…”
Sherman Allen, owner operator
Performance Improvements Verified
“I own a 2011 Peterbilt w/ Paccar MX-13 engine that has DPF, EGR, & SCR and started using EnerBurn in October 2015. My fuel economy improved to between 6.3 – 7.0 MPG. Since the truck was fairly new to me I did not have a good feel for the DPF regen frequency. After using EnerBurn consistently for almost 1 & ½ years I wanted to see what would happen if I discontinued its use. I lost between 0.3 – 0.5 MPG and the DPF regen frequency noticeably increased. I then went back to using EnerBurn and both the improvements in engine and DPF regen performance came right back. I use EnerBurn because it works and helps me to sustain my business.”
Larry Sullivan, owner operator
I use less DEF with EnerBurn…
“Before using EnerBurn my SCR system was consuming ~ 15 gallons of DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) per week at a cost of ~$45. My DEF consumption has now dropped to 10 gallons per week for the same miles and type of driving. I drive ~3200 miles per week, current mileage is 232,000; started using EnerBurn in April 2017 at 173,000 miles. So far I have not experienced any problems with my 2015 DD 13. I use EnerBurn to keep the after-exhaust treatment system and engine clean. I am also getting better fuel economy; when I started using EnerBurn the lifetime fuel mileage on my truck was 7.18, as of right now it is up to 7.3.”
Fuel Economy Improvement
“I read about EnerBurn in Movin’ Out magazine and decided to give it a try in my 2016 Peterbilt 579 with a Paccar motor. The “before” fuel economy from the ECM read-out was 6.3 MPG at 44,100 miles. After the first month (approx. 4,000 miles) using EnerBurn the MPG increased to 6.4. After 3 months of using EnerBurn my ECM reading is now 6.7 mpg at 78,800 miles, an increase of 6%. So far I have not experienced any DPF/DEF issues. I am pleased with my results and will continue to use EnerBurn.”

Less Downtime for fleet of Cummins ISX tanker trucks
“We have been using EnerBurn for over one year to treat diesel for our entire fleet of 2012 and newer Cummins ISX engines that haul bulk liquid tankers. Our trucks were experiencing excessive down-time caused by soot build-up on internal engine components. Downtime has been reduced since using EnerBurn. In our own evaluation we measured an increase in both fuel economy and DPF regen interval (fewer regen operations). These improvements in engine performance more than offset the cost of the additive but the real savings is in reduced down-time and maintenance expense.”

I now get immediate throttle response…
“I’m nearly done with my 8X, 16oz bottles and the truck has been running great! It’s like an engine sans DPF with a fresh fuel filter- immediate throttle response, excellent power, and smooth, quiet operation, even under high load. I own a 2013 Cummins ISX CM2350. Thanks again for your work in support of diesel owners.”
