There are a lot of additives available in the market and most of us consider them as extravagant expenditure and of little to no use. And most of them are just marketing and tall claims from lube companies. But this was not always the case. Back in the days, during the oil crisis of 1973 and 1979, there was a genuine need for the American consumer to abandon their muscle cars and save at the gas station to make ends meet. Hence the fuel system cleaner arrived. The one who patented the technology is Techron.

What happens with fuel to require cleaning?

Our vehicles burn the fuel and release the energy stored within. But just like all chemical process, there is also a carbon leftover. These carbon waste particles are formed and attach themselves to the backside of the intake valves, fuel lines, carburettors, injectors and throughout the combustion chamber.
For example, consider not cleaning your ovens or frying pans for a considerable amount of time. The continuous accumulation of this results in:

  • Loss of engine performance due to clogging of essential parts
  • Reduced fuel economy
  • Increased emissions
  • Hard starts
Fuel System Cleaners help clean areas where the deposits are formed and help increase longevity of the parts where the deposits are formed and maintain efficiency.

What makes fuel system cleaners tick?

The secret ingredient is PEA (Polyetheramines). There are many other chemicals as well, but this is the most aggressive content in any standard fuel system cleaner.

  • PEA breaks down the deposits into soluble parts so that they can be easily washed away and burned through normal combustion
  • PEA has surface active nature so it is effective in preventing the formation of additional deposits

Things to look for while selecting your fuel system cleaner

  • Look for fuel system cleaners with minimum 30% PEA content, 30% - 50% is the optimum measure otherwise it will be too diluted
  • Choose fuel system cleaners that cleans and also help prevent deposits from forming, all the while protecting the areas
  • Avoid fuel system cleaners with Sulphur build up
  • Choose the fuel system cleaner compatible with your climate, cold or hot weather respectively; Fuel injector cleaners that are made of synthetic, natural, and organic ingredients for the fluidity of the liquid depending on the conditions
Now that we have established that fuel system cleaners are vital and a very beneficial product, let us consider "Why Red Line?".
