Diesel Fuel Performance Improvers / Cetane Boost
Diesel Fuel Performance Improvers & Cetane Boosters allow you Diesel Engine to run at peak its performance and may improve fuel economy by up to 8%.
Cetane is a liquid hydrocarbon that is present in diesel fuel and is likened to octane, a constituent of gasoline. The respective numbers of these two fuel components are used to determine a fuel's combustion quality, or, in other words, its ability to resist auto-ignition. Similar to the octane number that is applied to gasoline to rank its ignition stability, cetane number is a measure of the ignition quality of a diesel fuel.
Studies show that there is a direct relationship between a diesel fuel's cetane number and its ignition point. Delayed ignition is a primary cause of high emissions and inferior engine performance. Fuels with high cetane numbers burn more quickly and more completely, resulting in smoother-running engines with less power lag, lower emissions and easier engine starting. Choose one of PSC's Diesel Fuel Performance Improvers & Cetane Boosters to observe immediate performance enhancements in your diesel-powered engine.
