Less Downtime for fleet of Cummins ISX tanker trucks

November 2017

“We now have less downtime in our fleet of 2012 Cummins ISX and newer engines that haul bulk liquid tankers.  Our trucks were experiencing excessive down-time caused by soot build-up on internal engine components. 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 less downtime and maintenance expense.”

I now get immediate throttle response…

December 2017

“I’m nearly done with my initial 1-gallon of FBC and the truck has been running great! It’s like an engine with out the DPF!  I get 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.”

2009 Cummins ISX 15 fuel savings pays me

November 2018

I am an owner operator with a Cummins ISX 15 equipped 2009 International Prostar with over 600,000 miles. My route is from Spokane WA generally to the Southeast hauling lumber. I am a true 48 state flat-bedder who drives under 62 mph and maintains the truck at 10 lbs of boost as much as possible for fuel economy.  After about 7000 miles with Better Diesel FBC my average went from 6.3 mpg to 6.7 mpg. There really aren’t any other variables that changed other than adding your product to the diesel. The product more than pays for itself in the fuel that I now save in my 2009 Cummins ISX, so technically, I am profiting from your product. Just wanted to say thanks and I will be using Better Diesel FBC every fill up from now on.

Super product for dpf filter cleaning

“Just a short letter to express my satisfaction with the Better Diesel FBC product. About 8 weeks ago I purchased Better Diesel FBC and started using it as specified. I then did a dpf filter cleaning for the first time at 370,000 miles.  The company that did the dpf cleaning were pretty shocked by this high number since they said the filters were white in color with some red dust inside after baking.   I have now decided that at I will no matter what use this product in my truck.  Super Product”

This dpf additive product is amazing…

November 2018

“A couple months ago I was starting to have regen issues on a 2008 Volvo. It was wanting to regen every other day. A friend told me about the Better Diesel FBC dpf additive. I did some research on it and decided to try it. Within two weeks of using FBC I was down to regening once a week. And noticed my engine was running smoother and fuel mileage was coming up. This product is amazing and would recommend it to anyone. “

2019 Volvo A60 Regen frequency comparison

December 2018

I purchased a new 2019 Volvo A60 motor “Globetrotter” and was very interested in how to keep my new engine clean. Then I saw ads for Better Diesel FBC  and started using the product.  I am now at 51,800 miles and am extremely pleased with how the product works in keeping my DPF regen frequency to once every 2 to 3 days.  This month during unseasonably cold weather I skipped adding Better Diesel FBC for two tanks in a row.  My regen frequency degraded to once every 6 hours during that time.  On the third refueling I added Better Diesel FBC and proceeded to idle for 11 hours overnight in extreme cold without a regen.

The “DPF soot gauge” on my Volvo is still showing “no ash accumulation”.  My engine runs smoother and quieter and I get much better fuel economy with Better Diesel FBC.  What a difference this product makes. Thank you.

“profitable year thanks to Better Diesel FBC…”

December 2018

“I’ve had a very profitable year in 2018 by staying out of the shop for engine repairs. My C15 Cat engine is now at 1.1 million miles and consistently gets 7.3 – 7.7 MPG, usually hauling heavy.  Still driving on original injectors. I change the engine oil every 15K miles.  The oil analysis reports have actually improved (lower levels of wear metals and soot) since using Better Diesel FBC in combination with a supplemental fuel lubricant additive.  Oil analysis tech told me to keep doing whatever I was doing…“

DD15 has smooth, strong acceleration…

January 2019

My Freightliner DD15 505 hp got a new DPF at 550K miles. I started using Better Diesel FBC to keep them clean and it is working.  Here I am 60,000 miles later and have no problems with DPF clogging. Plus my engine runs quieter and has less vibration.  I enjoy the smooth, strong acceleration I now get with use of FBC. I drive mostly long haul and my fuel economy is between 7.0 and 7.5 MPG.

without DPF problems for 220,000 miles

January 2019

I use Better Diesel FBC in my new 2017 Peterbilt 525 hp Cummins engine and run without DPF problems.  I started using the fuel catalyst when the engine was just broken in good at around 5,000 miles. By the time I got to 14,000 miles I saw improvements in performance like the hot exhaust light was staying off (fewer regens), I was using less DEF, and my MPG was creeping up. The engine is now at 226,000 miles without any DPF problems.  Active regens are infrequent and I can tell that the DPF system is staying clean because I am using the fuel catalyst. I am a believer in preventive maintenance and using the best available products in my equipment.  Better Diesel FBC is a fantastic product – I highly recommend it.

It works…

January 2019

My 2012 Kenworth Cummins ISX was billowing so much white smoke that a friend told me it looked like a train! The engine has 636,000 miles and I have been using Better Diesel FBC for the last 60,000 miles. No more smoke. No more stops for manual regens. The DPF now handles the soot with active regens while I drive. Better Diesel FBC – it works.

Caterpillar marine engine application…the SS Legacy

January 2019

“The twin Caterpillar 3512A engines on the SS Legacy get much better fuel economy with Better Diesel FBC.  We also appreciate that the engines run noticeably smoother and at lower decibels.  The fuel additive was implemented in April 2016 and since then, the engine oil and crank case stay nice and clean. Overall, the FBC improves engine performance above what could be achieved through our a regular maintenance schedule. We run the FBC as a diesel additive because it improves both engine power and eliminates visible soot from the stack. This latter aspect is very important to us as an environmentally conscious adventure cruise line.”

Year over year MPG comparison…

February 2019

“Year over year MPG Comparison…

This winter for 8 weeks since Dec. 26, 2018 I logged 24, 561 miles and used 3,578 gallons of ULSD treated with 1.17 gallons of Better Diesel FBC for a calculated MPG of 6.86 MPG.  This is 11% higher than for the same period last winter without the additive: 25,294 miles and 4,100 gallons of ULSD consumed for a calculated average of 6.17 MPG.  My DPF after-exhaust treatment system is running flawlessly in extreme cold temperatures with Better Diesel FBC. The last time the DPF was cleaned was more than 200K miles back. I will recommend this product to other owner operators with Halvor Van Lines. I drive a 2016 Kenworth with a Paccar MX 15 engine currently at 400,440 miles.”

Zero $ spent on DPF/DEF repairs in 2018…

February 2019

My 2010 Volvo was in the shop numerous times in 2017 for DPF clean-outs and EGR/DPF/DEF systems repairs with total combined loss of $20,000 in profits for that year. I started using Better Diesel FBC in January 2018 after another truck owner operator told me about it. My DPF parked regen frequency went from every other day to once every 4-5 days, saving me time and aggravation.  My fuel economy increased from mid-5’s  to 6.1 – 6.2 MPG hauling heavy, saving me money on my fuel expense.  Best of all I have stayed out of the shop for engine repairs for the last 14 months.  My cost for the year’s supply of Better Diesel FBC was $1,280 – what a deal! Thank you.

Better Diesel FBC lives up to its claims…

March 2019

“Better Diesel FBC fuel additive product lives up to its claims. I am an owner operator with a 2018 Volvo D13 engine and have used the diesel fuel additive since day one with this truck.   The engine is now at 140,000 miles now and the dashboard readouts for DPF carbon and ash level indicators are not going up. The “no regen needed” status is unchanged since new. I am very pleased that the DPF is staying clean because of this product.”

I love this product, my wife loves it even more…

March 2019

“I am an independent owner operator and have been running the last 2-3 months using Better Diesel FBC in my 2014 Cummins ISX 550 hp engine. My baseline fuel mileage has gone from 7.0 – 7.5 MPG to 8.3 – 8.5 MPG in winter. I can feel the difference in my engine. No more check engine lights, no more down time for regens.  With the lower fuel expense my wife loves this product even more than I do.”

MaxForce MF13 runs like a champ with FBC

May 2019

“My 2016 IH Prostar with a MaxForce MF13 engine runs like a champ with the FBC fuel catalyst. I purchased this truck at 228,000 miles and started using Better Diesel FBC on day one.  Now the MaxForce MF13 engine is at 290,000 miles.  Because of this dpf treatment product I am staying out of the shop for exhaust emissions problems and loving it. Plus I get outstanding engine performance and so the product pays for itself. Not long ago I noticed I was losing power on a hill then realized I had not treated the last tank of fuel.  I added the fuel catalyst and the power came right back.”

Ford F350 XLT, 4wd, 6.7L Powerstroke

June 2019

I have a 2015 Ford F350 XLT, 4wd, 6.7 Powerstroke Cab & Chassis work truck with a large Knapheide KUVCC utility body for HVAC/R service.  The truck was getting very poor fuel mileage and my DPF would regen every 2-3 days.  I tried MANY different additives that were popular products on the Ford Powerstroke Forum.  Absolutely none of the products that I tried has any impact on my trucks regeneration or mileage.

I got (4x) 16-oz bottles of Better Diesel Fuel Borne Catalyst.  After about a week or two of use I noticed my DPF regenerations had only occurred 2, maybe 3 times, in the 4 times I fueled up!  I also noticed the truck wasn’t running as rough when the DPF was getting full like it did previously.  My fuel mileage has also increased slightly.  In no way did I alter my “lead foot” driving habits.  This Fuel Borne Catalyst works way better than I could have imagined and I plan on using it exclusively along with a fuel lubricity additive as suggested by Jane.  The (4) bottles I bought have lasted 7 months.

I am a true believe in this product and will continue to use it in my vehicle and our other diesel service trucks.  I am not a paid spokesman, just a customer.  I like to let others know of my experience because it could possibly help them.  Especially those who run diesel in service trucks.
