‘Clean diesel particulate filters will support reduced emissions,’ says Fueltone Pro

Date: Monday 29 April 2024

As stricter emissions regulations are implemented globally, Aberdeenshire-based additives brand, Fueltone Pro, is highlighting how chemical technology has been developed to ensure internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles can run with reduced emissions.

As more and more Ultra Low Emissions Zones (ULEZs) and Clean Air Zones (CAZs) are being introduced across the UK, motorists are looking for ways to ensure they are operating clean engines and mitigating the environmental impact of driving.

Robbie Grey, managing director at Fueltone Pro, says: "We recognise the importance of reducing emissions and ensuring fuel economy – that’s why our additives are specifically formulated to enhance combustion efficiency and reduce harmful emissions.”

All diesel-powered vehicles, from 2009 onwards, feature a diesel particulate filter (DPF) as part of the vehicle’s exhaust system, and if they become partially clogged with particulate, back pressure in the engine is increased, affecting fuel economy and reducing power, which can cause serious issues over time.

Fueltone Pro has two product lines that optimise running of DPFs. The company’s Fueltone Pro DPF 200 product reduces the load on the DPF itself by vastly reducing filter-blocking particles, and by adding a fuel-tank based catalyst to make it easier for the filter to regenerate.

The other application is Fueltone Pro DPF Foam Burst, which is applied to the DPF in situ via a sensor port when the filter is blocked. The foam expands though the filter and burns away any particulate, saving time and costs on expensive repairs.

Fueltone Pro’s range of fuel additive and engine flush products sit alongside DPF solutions, that in independent and field tests yielded up to a 14 percent increase in fuel efficiency and up to an 86 percent reduction in particulate emissions.
