Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment for Cars and Trucks

Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment

The EPA is actively working to increase the amount of ethanol in fuel to 15 percent.

Star-tron-enzyme-fuel-ethanolThe EPA is actively working to increase the amount of ethanol in fuel to 15 percent. The following is what you need to know in order to help your customers understand how E15 differs from E10 and what do you need to know about it, according to Star Tron. Star Tron manufactures Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment, a multifunctional product that does more than “just stabilize;” it also improves combustibility while also treating debris and moisture in fuel. It works in all fuel, including E5, E15 and Rec 90 ethanol-free gas, according to the company.

While many cars and trucks can use fuel with 15 percent ethanol, many others cannot. More importantly, some car warranties will not cover damage caused by fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol (E10). This does not affect Flex-fuel vehicles, which can safely use fuel containing up to 85 percent ethanol (E85). However, many vehicles and virtually all motorcycles, boats, most lawn equipment and other smaller gas-powered engines are not designed to be used with E15. This fuel poses a special risk to two-cycle engines which run hotter with E15, and as such, could suffer damage. No fuel additive will allow engines designed for E10 to run E15 or higher ethanol blends.

Ethanol can have corrosive effects on rubber fuel lines and some metal surfaces.

Ethanol does not produce as much energy as gasoline, which is why engines using ethanol-blended fuel cannot produce maximum horsepower or fuel economy.

As an alcohol, ethanol attracts moisture; the more ethanol in a fuel, the more likely it is to draw in moisture, which will have a negative impact on the quality of the fuel and the performance of the engine.

Ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond. Left untreated, this fuel begins to degrade soon after blending, leading to the formation of performance-robbing gums and other deposits.

There is no miracle product that can remove ethanol from fuel or neutralize it. Your best defense against using fuels with higher ethanol contents is your eyes. Read the ethanol signs at the pump; if your engine is designed to be used with E15 fuel, use Star Tron to ensure that it burns even cleaner while restoring lost power. Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment is a multifunctional product that does more than “just stabilize;” it also improves combustibility while also treating debris and moisture in fuel. It works in all fuel, including E5, E15 and Rec 90 ethanol-free gas.

By improving combustibility, Star Tron helps achieve a more complete burn of the fuel charge, which results in maximum power and fuel economy, the company says. It also reduces emissions while keeping fuel delivery systems clean. Some techs actually rely on Star Tron to clean carburetors and fuel injectors. Star Tron’s enzymes also help prevent corrosion, the company says.

Be careful what you put in your tank; many fuel treatments contain alcohol or alcohol derivatives. Adding alcohol to fight alcohol-related problems may actually worsen the situation. Star Tron’s alcohol-free formula is simple: a blend of proprietary enzymes in a fuel suspension.

Stabilizing Fuel

Fuel in equipment that will not be used for extended periods of time such as seasonal gear – convertibles, boats, motorcycles, snowmobiles, RVs or outdoor power equipment – needs to be stabilized. Traditional stabilizers can decrease the combustibility of fuel, resulting in engines that run rough and smoky or are difficult to start in the spring. In addition to stabilizing fuel for up to 2 years, Star Tron helps improve fuel combustibility so engines start easily and run strong. By preparing for winter, engines are ready for spring.
