Improve Fleet Performance with Diesel Enhancing Products
It’s not the most common element in the preventative maintenance schedule of a diesel fleet, but by implementing a regular practice of cleaning your diesel fuel system you can improve fleet performance and support your trucks to run cleaner, with more fuel efficiency, and with more overall power. Over time, carbon deposits can build up in the fuel system of your diesel engine, significantly inhibiting performance. It’s like having plaque in one’s arteries. The plaque constricts the blood flow and forces the heart to work harder and harder to keep up with the functions of the body. Similarly, a compromised or constricted fuel system forces your engine to work overtime, creating stress and strain on engine components that can cause premature and costly wear and tear over time. By utilizing a diesel fuel system service or product you will improve performance significantly by cleaning the fuel injectors, the fuel pump, the combustion chamber, the tank, and all valves and hoses. By choosing from the line of diesel enhancing products that we carry at SCL you can eliminate rough idle, eliminate engine hesitation problems, and significantly decrease emissions.

Chevron with Techron – Chevron’s fuel cleaning additive tackles engine buildup to maximize mileage, improve acceleration, minimize emissions, protect engine parts, and reduce or stop engine knock.
The Bottom Line
It’s a fact that over time your diesel engine will build up carbon deposits in and around the fuel injectors and throughout the fuel system, which will negatively impact your engine’s power and performance. You can take your truck to a professional garage where they will clean the debris using ultrasonic waves, but this method can be time and cost prohibitive. You can disassemble and clean the fuel injectors in-house, which can also be time consuming and potentially costly if mistakes are made, or you can choose what we consider to be the best option for cleaning your diesel engine – utilize chemical fuel injector cleaners. This option removes debris from the fuel injectors while the truck is running, circulating it throughout the entire fuel system. With no negative impact on your truck or vehicle, these chemical fuel additives remove debris where it is then burned and eliminated.
