Green Clean for Diesels
Martin Lubricants recently announced the introduction of its STP Diesel Fuel Treatment. It contains Greenclean Detergent Technology, which is a complete solution to improve the quality of diesel fuel as it lubricates critical fuel system components, cleans fuel injectors and boosts cetane. The year-round formula increases power more than 3 percent, provides for smoother and quieter engine operation and improves fuel economy more than 2 percent.
STP Diesel Fuel Treatment restores engine performance as it cleans up sticky injector deposits in all diesel fuel injection systems, including high-pressure common rail systems found in newer diesel engines. It uses additive technology that cleans injector
deposits and continues to protect against the formation of new deposits. It also increases cetane up to two numbers, easing engine star
ts, reducing power lag and lowering emissions and white smoke.
STP Diesel Fuel Treatment with Greenclean Technology contains inhibitors to protect fuel injection components from rust and corrosion while friction modifiers provide an extra level of protection extending the life of the fuel pump and injectors.
This formula stabilizes the diesel fuel making it less likely for fuel degradation and sediment formation that can quickly plug fuel filters. A low-temp formulation that is engineered for cold weather performance will be available in mid-2016.

One Diesel Additive, Multiple Solutions
For complaints about rough running or noisy diesel engines, Rislone has introduced its Diesel Fuel System Treatment. It is a ULSD sulfur substitute, injector and complete fuel system cleaner, upper cylinder lubricant, anti-gel cold flow improver, fuel stabilizer and conditioner, and even Cetane booster. With just one product, you can improve the quality of your customers’ diesel fuel by increasing its cleaning ability, adding lubrication, removing contaminants, fighting corrosion and helping to prevent the fuel from gelling and going bad.
To make Rislone Diesel Fuel System Treatment easy to install, each dual-cavity bottle comes with a patented EZ Nozzle spout attached that is designed to work with diesel misfueling devices and capless diesel systems. For best results, one 16.9 fluid ounce (50
0 mL) bottle should be used every 5,000 miles, or every time the engine is scheduled for an oil change. One bottle is concentrated to treat up to 35 gallons of diesel fuel. For larger vehicles, use one bottle per 30 gallons of fuel capacity.
Rislone Diesel Fuel System Treatment is designed to work with all light-, medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines, including ULSD and biodiesel. It will not harm the engine or any emissions components, including catalytic converters, particulate filters, EGR valve or DEF systems.
