Long-acting fuel additives for general use


 

My general fuel additives cover both E85, gasoline, diesel and also the experimental additive dEC+ can be found. They are based on various naphtha products, diesel, acetone, alcohols, IPA and even V-Power. They are carefully tested chemical constellations that work. Fuel additives for E85 are T66, AT2, AG+ and AG++. The plus sign means that there is dissolved powder of HMTA (hexamine) in the additive. ISO can be seen as a universal additive but is well suited for diesel. For gasoline we have A40 and AXg. Even D66 alone works well for gasoline. AT2 which is a mixture of T66, acetone and V-Power is intended to be combined with the glycol additive AG+, a so-called LFG fuel that is still under development (NAMAG). These can be considered as a bit extreme and as a average person should avoid... Do you drive E85, then click on ”Glycols Additives” - they are effect enhancement (opening time reducing). All additives are long-acting.

Apart from a certain opening-time reduction (increment of power) seems the additives; cleaning, lubricating, water absorbent and for diesel; both cleaning and bactericidal.

The power increase does not depend on that the energy in the fuel has increased but that the burning has become more efficient and faster.

Important when you intend to use a glycol additive is that the fuel (E85) must be contaminated with water, otherwise the glycol will cease to work. For this reason is there a special label for all glycol based additives, which includes - additive plus water. If one wants dosing water separately, you can choose this Label. Click on ”Chemicals” to get more information about which glycols one should choose and the differences between them.

The procedure for preparation is to first determine the amount of an additive that is desired, then multiplying the amount with - the component through the ”sum”. For instance, suppose we want to have 900 ml of T66 - then one can prepare 600 ml of lighter fluid first (900 x 2/3). The following components are calculated the same way. To determine the amount of diesel for the same example; take 900 x 1/3 which is 300 ml of diesel.

 

T66 (swedish spelling) T66   label for T66
Only for E85. Power enhancing and cleans/lubricates the fuel system.
Dose factor: 0.005 0.5 %
2 parts lighter fluid (hydrogen treated naphtha)
1 part diesel - avoid ACP! (Preem)

sum = 3 parts

Commentary
Has excellent and long-acting properties. Should be kept cool! Some lighter fluids or diesel grades not works. T66 can not replace D66 in combination with glycol additives.
Consumption gain: Not measured  
  Opening time reduction: 30-40 %

 

 

AT2 AT2   label for AT2
For E85, alcohol and gas mixtures so-called NAM fuels.
Dose factor: 0.01 or 0.02 1 or 2 %
Pure E85 (2%) E85 and V-Power mix (1%)
2 parts V-Power
1 part T66
1 part acetone

sum = 4 parts

1 part T66
1 part acetone
 

sum = 2 parts

Commentary
Highly efficient fuel additive based on T66. The gasoline type as Shell sell have beneficial properties in E85 and the amount of acetone can then be higher. AT2 is part of NAMAG+OC method and is then paired with AG+. One has since LFG (lighter fluid glycol) which has consumption-reducing properties. You can also choose a 50/50 mixture of acetone and V-Power, which is dosed individually as a booster additive.
Consumption gain: Not measured  
  Opening time reduction: 30-40 %

 

 

AG+ reduces the fuel consumption (in varying degrees) for optional ethanol and gasoline constellations and is the only glycol additive that is suitable for T66. Like G14a and UGA reduces AG+ also the opening time and is power-enhancing. It is therefore a fuel additive that is particularly hard to beat.

When a lower ethanol content (gas mixed with E85) than 85% shall be used should acetone be added to AG+. Use this formula: quantity of acetone = quantity of AG+ x 0.0035 x (85-E??). Example: In use of E75 will the acetone factor be 0.0035 x (85-75), i.e. 0.035. The amount of AG+ multiplies with 0.035 gives the amount of acetone. For 100 ml AG+ shall thus 3.5 ml acetone be added, before it will be dosed in E75

AG+ AG+ Complement to AT2 label for AG+
For E85, alcohol and gas mixtures so-called LFG fuels.
Dose factor = 0.005 0.5 %
100% adapted glycol - must be ordered
Commentary
Represents the final component in a NAM fuel when one wants to obtain an LFG fuel. The dose of this additive should follow the ethanol content and shall not be overdosed. The dosing of AG+ and AT2 should be made by special methodology - follow this instruction. Can not be mixed with other additives. Alcohols such as IPA can not be used in these contexts. Like a poison kills them all the beneficial effects of AG+, it also applies AT2. Label for AG+ with water.
Consumption gain: > 5 %  
The content of SHA for AG++: 20 ppm (in the fuel) Opening time reduction: 30-40 %

 

 

Here ceases additives for NAMAG and the first following is an ethanol carrier which already is saturated with HMTA. In addition can other alcohol-soluble components be added, little as you feel that a fuel additive should contain.

 

 

dEC+ dEC+ Shall be combined with X66... label for dEC+
For both gasoline and E85. Carriers of octane-enhancing components.
Dose factor: 0.01 1 %
Mix 0
20 parts methylated spirits (avoid ethanol mixed with IPA)
1 part HMTA (hexamine)
X parts soluble components

sum = ? parts

Commentary
This naphtha-free experiment additive is a carrier consisting of denatured ethanol, which can be useful when one wants to introduce octane-enhancing components in the fuel (ethanol is octane-enhancing in itself), without that glycol must be included. Methanol is an even better solvent for salts, which one can replace some of the spirit with. However, avoid combining this fuel additive with IPA (isopropanol). As an ”experiment additive” can dEC+ be varied in many ways. See examples.

Here are four long-acting additives for gasoline and diesel but ISO can also be used for E85. In gasoline is both acetone and IPA additives stable unlike for E85. There is no clear correlation between acetone volatility versus an additive stability (long-term effect).

 

 

ISO ISO   label for ISO
For both gasoline and E85 and also for DIESEL.
Dose factor: 0.01 1 %
2 parts IPA (pure)
2 parts D66 for both gasoline or E85
1 part white spirit (only for diesel fuels)

sum = 4 parts (3 parts for diesel)

Commentary
Along with a cleaning and lubricating component increases not only the power but also the fuel consumption should decrease. ISO can be seen as a Tripak substitute. Select either D66 or white spirit (not both).
Consumption gain: Not measured  
   

 

 

A40 A40   label for A40
For petrol (gasoline).
Dose factor: 0.005 0.5 %
2 parts acetone
3 parts D66

sum = 5 parts

Commentary
This additive is especially suitable for petrol cars! Acetone plus a cleaning and lubricating component leads to increased power and lower fuel consumption. The amount of acetone is now 0.2%. To reduce the level of acetone; try with 3/5 (0.19%) or 4/7 (0.18%) instead of 2/3 (0.2). A40 does not contain glycol. This additive can hold ωFe (iron oleate) and also this: A20.
Consumption gain: 2-5 %  
The content of ωFe: 300 ppm Opening time reduction: -10 %

 

 

Two additives that take into account that practically all gas today contains 5-10% ethanol. AXg is the first fuel additive that combining both acetone and IPA. D66 can be incorporated which simplifies the dosing process. The fuel consumption always increases with ethanol but with AXg is my hope that this gasoline will reach its old position again. Even low octane gasoline can enjoy the benefits of AXg.

 

A8g A8g   label for A8g
For petrol's with 5 % ethanol.
Dose factor: 0.005 0.5 %
1 part glycol
8 parts acetone
11 parts IPA

sum = 20 parts

Commentary
Avoid G+ because the amount of acetone is too high. A8g is the first additive that combines both acetone and IPA! When there already existing lubrication and cleaning components in some fuels one can dismiss D66/Di66. It is possible to replace 6 parts of IPA with D66. For making the glycol component working, add water - use for example pre-mixed glycol (antifreeze).
Consumption gain: 2-5 %  
  Opening time reduction: -10 %

 

 

  A7g   label for A7g
For petrol's with 10 % ethanol.
Dose factor: 0.005 0.5 %
2 parts glycol
7 parts acetone
11 parts IPA

sum = 20 parts

Commentary
Avoid G+ because the amount of acetone is too high. A7g is also an alternative if one need to higher the glycol amount in the 5% petrol and at the same time lower the amount of acetone a bit. For petrol products without lubrication and cleaning components is it possible to replace up to 4 parts IPA with D66. For making the glycol component working, add water - use for example pre-mixed glycol (antifreeze).
Consumption gain: 2-5 %  
  Opening time reduction: -10 %
