Conway, S.C., April 26, 2012 – As part of the EETC Annual Conference, B3C Fuel Solutions, a manufacturer of environmentally friendly products and solutions for ethanol and bio-fuel related problems, conducted training seminars to provide instructors with the latest information on new products, technical updates, and hands-on training. In addition to training, B3C donated its award winning Gasoline Test Kit to all certified EETC training programs. The Gasoline Test Kit is the same kit used by professional B3C Fuel
Solutions Authorized Dealers. The fuel diagnostic kit quickly identifies fuel related problems. This revolutionary service tool gives a complete understanding of fuel quality while educating about the effects of ethanol. This kit allows you to become the “expert” in fuel related issues.
Founded in 1997, the EETC is a non-profit trade association with a goal to develop and create professional power equipment technicians for today's sophisticated power equipment products. The association has developed the EETC Technician Certification program to measure the skill level of repair technicians working in the industry today and has developed the EETC School Accreditation program to recognize schools that have an outstanding outdoor equipment training course to train future technicians.
“We are pleased to collaborate with a complete fuel solution company such as B3C to advance equipment and engine training and education for technicians in the power equipment industry. Their dedication to advancing the power equipment industry is making a positive impact,” said Jim Roche, Executive Director, EETC.
“Often, when an engine is running rough, or will not start, the problems can be traced back to issues caused by ethanol-blended fuels. We want to ensure that the public is aware of these issues, and that they know there are solutions for these problems,” said Brian O’Neil, Chief Business Development Officer for B3C Fuel Solutions. “The ethanol in gasoline contains high amounts of oxygen and when left standing for more than 60 days, begins to decay, resulting in hard starting and varnish deposits in the fuel system and engine.”, said O’Neil. O’Neil also serves as a board director for the EETC.
B3C Fuel Solutions will continue its efforts to educate the public and work with its partners to inform about the negative impact of ethanol-blended fuels. As a complete fuel solution company for today’s modern fuels, the labs at B3C will continue to improve their existing products and create new solutions to combat ethanol related issues.
