Getting the most mileage out of a tank of gasoline or diesel fuel is more important than ever. Most boaters, however, don't know that using a gasoline or diesel fuel specially formulated for marine engines can significantly reduce fuel consumption and maintenance costs and extend marine engine life.
Marine engines can use up to 10 times more fuel per hour than the engine in a car or truck because they operate at much higher RPMs and loads than automotive engines. The detergents and other additives in automotive-grade gasoline or truck-grade diesel fuel are typically not effective enough to keep a marine engine's fuel system clean of deposits. They also do not contain additives that help prevent premature wear. ValvTect Marine Fuels are now available at Certified ValvTect Marinas nationwide to provide the performance and engine protection marine engines need.
ValvTect Marine Gasoline and ValvTect Marine Premium Diesel Fuel are specially formulated for marine engines and operating conditions to prevent and clean up power-robbing deposits. They are test proven to reduce fuel consumption and protect the engine from premature wear. Compared to non-marine grades of gasoline or diesel fuel, ValvTect Marine Fuels contain more detergents, stabilizers, water dispersants and other important additives.
ValvTect Marine Gasoline contains ValvTect Octane Performance Improver (OPI), a patented combustion modifier, detergent, fuel stabilizer, moisture dispersant and anti-wear additive. It cleans the entire fuel system of problem-causing deposits, improves combustion, increases octane performance, stabilizes the fuel and extends engine life. Fuel economy tests indicate ValvTect Marine Gasoline with OPI reduces fuel consumption up to 8% versus automotive-grade gasoline. Engine wear tests indicate ValvTect OPI extends valve seat life up to 70%. ValvTect OPI is not available in any other brand of automotive- or marine-grade gasoline.
ValvTect Marine Fuels are specially formulated to meet the high demands of marine engines and operating conditions and can only be found at Certified ValvTect Marine Fuel marinas. ValvTect Octane Performance Improver, Diesel Guard Heavy Duty Marine Diesel Additive and BioGuard can be purchased at most marine supply stores if a marina does not offer ValvTect Marine Fuels.
