How to Dilute Dasoline?
Additives to fuel - a necessity or fun?
Normal additives do not need any additives, of course. But, unfortunately, anything happens at the gas station. Therefore, freshly purchased gasoline can suffer from the following defects:
1. Low octane rating . The consequence is low knock resistance, which entails a reduction in engine power. If you are completely unlucky, then a set of horror stories is possible - burnt valves and pistons, dead bearings, etc. For additional details check out the best octane booster.
2. Resins and other "excesses are bad." The consequence is a deterioration in the quality of combustion, contamination of the fuel system, overheating of the engine, the death of the catalytic converter.
3. Water. Everything is clear with her - at best, the engine will start to twitch or start up poorly, and at worst, when it's cold outside, it simply refuses to work. A tiny ice floe can do a lot. Of the less obvious negative consequences of “water procedures”, we note corrosion of fuel lines and other elements of the power system.
Each vice has its own doctor with a diploma in the specialty “Automobile chemical goods”. There are possible options: there are specialists of both a narrow and a wide profile. Wide-profile treat everything at once - a kind of rural doctors. Narrow-profile ones are taken only for something specific - these include, for example, octane correctors, cleaners, as well as moisture removers from gasoline.
We periodically experience similar drugs. Immediately, we note that almost always the effect declared by the manufacturer can be safely "divided into two" - or even three. However, the drugs still work.
In addition to the above funds, the purpose of which is quite understandable, there are others - they are very fond of discussing them in various forums. Opinions are expressed exclusively polar - from unrestrained praise to unequivocal rejection. This is mainly due to the certain limited presence of such products on the market - say, at which gas station is the “Fuel Amplifier” sold? Or, for example, "Lubricating additive for fuel equipment of gasoline engines "? But all these drugs really exist.
We checked some exotic of this kind. In particular, the motor fuel amplifier gave an octane increment of about 0.6 units and showed a slight increase in power (about 4%). By the way, the check was then carried out on inferior 92nd. In general, exoticism exists in many individuals. According to the descriptions, with its help they turn ordinary gasolines into sports ones, lubricate fuel equipment, as well as clean, reduce, etc. As usual, you should not believe everything. Say, references to nanotechnology or to the possibility of raising the speed to 15,000 rpm sound pretty funny. It seems to me that it is better not to pour such drugs into warranty cars, leaving the experiments “for later”.
