The Importance of Fuel Additives

Fuel additives can turn into a subject of great debate. While some mechanics encourage their use, others are skeptical about their benefits. The reason behind this is mostly due to the effectiveness of each type. To get to know more about fuel additives and their benefits, continue reading this post.

What Are Fuel Additives?

Fuel additives are substances made to enhance the fuel you put in your fuel system. They claim to improve the quality and efficiency of your fuel, leading to a cleaner system and better engine performance among many other benefits. Additives can be included in the fuel you buy or they can be bought separately and later added into your fuel tank. They can come in a variety of forms, including liquids, powders, and pills, and in a number of brands. Be sure to check out AMSOIL's full range of fuel additives for gasoline powered engines and diesel motors.

What's the Purpose of a Fuel Additive?

Fuel additives will promise different results based on what they include in their formula. Some are made to keep your fuel system cleaner while others focus on boosting a vehicle's octane. The benefits they offer include better engine performance, better lubrication, less wear, and improved combustion.

Before Buying a Fuel Additive

Just like with any other product you purchase, be sure to do the proper research before settling on your perfect choice. To get started, first identify what it is you would like the fuel additive to address. Once this is clear, look for one that focuses on the issue at hand. Be sure it's what you need and read some reviews to be sure the product delivers what it promises. Always use the product as instructed in order to get the best results. This includes knowing when to use the product and how often it will be needed.

Added Benefits of Fuel Additives

Detergents and increased octane are standard when it comes to fuel additives, but what else can they offer? Among the most common added benefits of fuel additives are the superior lubrication they offer and their friction modifiers. These help improve combustion, reduce heat caused by friction, and reduce wear to important moving parts that keep your vehicle going.

Types of Fuel Additives

Fuel additives can be broken down into several categories depending on what they do. Below are some of the most common types of fuel additives.

Gasoline Stabilizers

Gasoline stabilizers are commonly used in vehicles that are used seasonally. Examples of these types of vehicles include boats, motorcycles, and lawn mowers. They are used to prevent hard starts that are caused by evaporating gasoline and can prevent corrosion in the fuel tank. These are commonly added to a full fuel tank before storing your seasonal vehicle. A great example of this is AMSOIL's Gasoline StabilizerUsing a fuel stabilizer will help prevent the formation of sludge that can clog fuel lines during your vehicle's off season.

Cleaning Fuel Additives

Because all gasoline leaves deposits that lead to combustion problems, fuel additives that keep fuel lines clean are a great purchase. These may come in the form of fuel injector cleaners, fuel system cleaners, or multi-system additives. While fuel system cleaners are regarded as having the most powerful cleaning properties, you still want to do proper research in order to ensure you're getting the best product for your needs. These additives can aid engines that have experienced decreased cold engine performance and sluggish acceleration. These may actually be signs of a clog in the fuel injectors, so be sure to properly understand what's going on before trying to fix the issue.

Octane Boosters

Octane boosters started to become popular among consumers in the 1970's after ethyl lead stopped being used. Now, it is typically used in vehicles with high compression engines, including antique or collector engines and racing engines. This additive can be used on your normal vehicle to help get its octane to where it should be. When looking for an octane booster, concentrate on finding one that improves your octane by a significant amount. Get to know more about the different types of fuel additives by clicking here.
