Valvoline introduced its EasyGDI Fuel System Service featuring Power Dispersal Technology.

The service features an intake cleaner, fuel rail cleaner and a complete fuel system treatment. The unique technology, a revolutionary chemical formulation, allows 10 detergents to melt away carbon deposits and circulate to the toughest places to clean in a GDI fuel system without painstaking labor or an intensive dismantle of the engine and fuel system.

Lubegard announced its Synthetic Power Steering Fluid for all European, North American and Asian vehicles. (Honda fluid is recommended for Honda vehicles.) The fluid is formulated with a base synthetic oil and a proprietary additive package that includes patented technologies: Synergol TMS and Liquid Wax Ester (LXE) for anti wear protection. Synergol TMS is a non-active, phosphoruous-free surface molecule composed solely of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. It contains no other toxic, corrosive, metallic or polluting elements. LXE allows heat transfer making the Synthetic Power Steering fluid heat stable. The combination of these two technologies prolongs the life of the power steering system unit and makes the operation smoother and less stiff. The Power Steering Fluid is effective in a wide range of temperatures, and its additive package protects seals and hoses, reducing the risk of power steering leaks and prolongs the life of parts.
