It is important to understand the quality of the fuel that you put into your valuable equipment. Whether it is gas or diesel, the majority of engine problems are due to bad gasoline or diesel fuel. Our fuel quality test swabs let you know if fuel is fresh, marginal (decaying) or bad. Knowing your fuel quality is the first step to fixing and preventing your fuel related issues.
Why test your gasoline?
- Ethanol attracts water; settles on the tank bottom (phase separation) and is pulled in by the fuel line
- Ethanol blended fuels can decompose in as little as 60 days
- Severe engine damage can occur when run on marginal fuel
- Damage can include carbon, varnish, rust, gumming, brittle and broken rubber and plastic parts, corrosion and much more
Why test your diesel fuel?
- Over time, water can accumulate causing bacterial growth, yeast, mold and diesel bugs.
- These appear as sludge coating the bottom and sides of the fuel tank. In extreme cases, bacterial growth that looks like strands of hair begin to accumulate.
- The resulting problems include sludge, rust, asphaltenes, plugged filters, dirty injectors and more!
Our products help fix fuel related issues in gasoline and diesel fuel. How do you fix the fuel system?
Mechanic In A Bottle synthetic fuel additive works in 2-cycle and 4-cycle gasoline engines. It removes all varnish in the fuel system without having to remove the carburetor, removes carbon deposit and water, reconditions rubber and plastic components, and revitalizes old fuel. Mechanic In A Bottle rejuvenates fuel systems so they start efficiently and operate in top condition.
To fix diesel fuel systems, simply insert a Diesel Tank Snake Water Absorber into your fuel tank to remove water. Since water causes the problems, removing it helps fix these problems. Once it is full of water, pull it out, hang it to dry, and reuse up to 10 X! Our Diesel Tank Snakes are available for stationary and mobile tanks.
Stop costly repairs by preventing fuel related problems in gasoline and diesel fuel.
To prevent future problems in your 2 and 4 Cycle engines, just add the recommended amount of Ethanol Shield into the gas tank or can. Ethanol Shield will stabilize the gasoline as well as eliminate water issues to prevent phase separation, oxidation, and other ethanol related issues. Ethanol Shield will also bond gas, ethanol, and 2-stroke oil together preventing lean seizures.
Our non-additive solution is the Gas Tank Shield. This In-Tank Fuel Stabilizer treats ten tanks of fuel to stabilize, remove water, and serve as an anti-corrosive. Gas Tank Shield, with Fuel Life Technology, neutralizes the chemical reaction that starts fuel decay and removes water bound to ethanol, greatly reducing corrosion and eliminating phase separation. And, it is non-toxic and non-hazardous.
Ethanol Shield 2-Cycle Oil is a premium quality, ultra-synthetic blend 2-Cyle Oil with all the engine protection of Ethanol Shield Fuel Stabilizer. This is the solution where standard 2-Cycle Oils fail, offering the ultimate in engine protection! Ethanol Shield 2-Cycle Oil is the “bridge” that bonds fuel, Ethanol and water, preventing phase separation and the associated problems. This 1-gallon, 50:1 mix ensures the most protection on the market today for any 2-Cycle engine, including string trimmers, blowers, snowmobiles, chains saws, and more. Ethanol Shield 2-Cycle Oil provides 2 exceptional products at a cost comparable to “average” 2-Cycle Oils with the convenience of ease of use (no measuring, no need to add additional additives).
Diesel Mechanic In A Bottle fixes and protects the entire diesel fuel system. This ultra-concentrated All-In-One diesel fuel additive is engineered to protect your entire fuel system from problems caused by Diesel and Bio-Diesel blended fuels. It increases fuel mileage, removes water, stabilizes the fuel, keeps injectors clean, prevents gelling, increases Cetane, and extends the life of pumps and injectors.
