I would like to let your team at AXI International know how impressed I am with the fuel polishing system [FPS FX with an optional remotely mounted Waterblock Filter] that was installed on "Hellion". Hellion was delivered to me in July, 2019 in Lake Erie. After cruising the Great Lakes in July and August; we set out on a voyage to South Florida for the winter... The miles under the Hellion's hull total about 3500 now. Obviously a lot of diesel fuel ups at unknown (to me) marinas. I'm happy to report there has been ZERO fuel issues onboard HELLION. I'm specifying an AXI International fuel polisher on my next new build with Kadey Krogen. I would highly recommend your systems to anyone considering a marine fuel polishing system.
The fuel tank was growing "black Jell-O" and clogging the Racor fuel filters. The engine would then give me grief until I changed out the filters and three months later it would do it all over again again. Always seemed to happen when the weather conditions were the worst and the boat was pitching and rolling and the fuel was sloshing around the tank. I installed an Algae-X fuel polishing system on the boat and put the Algae-x fuel catalyst in the tank and never had a fuel related problem again.

Well the Algae-X system has been installed just about a month now and the difference is astounding! The first thing I noticed immediately was a major reduction in transom soot, (at least 75%). In fact on short sunset trips I find no soot what so ever. ... My fuel consumption has dropped almost 8% which is amazing since this is a relatively new engine.

Welcomes Algae-X as standard equipment in the GASKI fuel systems. My Customers operate fishing vessels and other workboats. Performance and reliability are their primary concerns. Algae-X is a key element in our goal of providing state of the art fuel system and engine technology to our Customers.
SF Chandler, President GASKI Boats International
First I want to tell you that the fuel management system really does work as you said it would. I, at first, thought it wasn't working because I still had the smoking problem at high RPM's but as you stated, after three tanks of diesel fuel the black smoke cleared and the engines are running excellent at any RPM.
Roger S. Young
Based on my experience, I would recommend the Algae-X system to anyone with diesels, especially those who, like myself, must put their boat in storage for long periods of time.
Mobile Fuel Polishing Systems
Service multiple vessels with a mobile fuel filtration cart or skid system.
Rid tanks of contaminates with an aggressive multi-phase polishing process.
Choose from a wide range of system flow rates best suited for the tank sizes being serviced.
Configure a custom trailer for easy transport of larger high capacity polishing systems.
Over the past several years many of our clients have experienced significant results by using the Algae-X Inline Fuel Conditioners on their diesel engines. The most noted benefits reported by our customers have been extended filter & injector life, lower exhaust temperatures, and reduced emissions.
Calvin Klotz, VP Marine Division Cummins Mid South LLC
Since Algae-X units have been installed as standard equipment on new vessel construction and retrofitted on many of our Customers' boats, we have never had a report of engine failure on any of these vessels. We prefer to be on the "lead end" of a towline, instead of the rear end!

Had been changing fuel filters at 50-100 hours before installing Algae-X. Almost immediately after Algae-X units were installed, Mark saw a very noticeable difference in engine performance and filter consumption. Now filters are changed at normal intervals and transoms no longer turn black due to exhaust gasses.
Mark Kampfmueller, Port Engineer Virginia Pilots Assn.
Every month we were traveling to one of our boats to change out the injector nozzles. After we installed the Algae-X system on these boats, we prolonged the injector nozzles life to every 3-4 months before changing. Also, smoking of the engines cut back.
Normally I would get an inch of crud out of each filter after about 50 hours, but after installing Algae-x, NOTHING. I could never get 100 hours out of a 30 micron Racor 500 cartridge before, and now I'm up to 150 and counting. Plus, the smoke is greatly reduced, the exhaust smells cleaner, and - here's the best of all - fuel economy is up over 10%.

Conclusion: The Algae-X product does what Algae-X International says it can do, and then some. The fuel efficiencies and filter savings realized by these Cutters are impressive and significantly reduce operating costs. I could confidently say the Algae-X product is a NECESSARY component of any diesel, or lighter distillate fuel system.

Reduce emissions, carbon deposits, smoke, and downtime.
Increase your engine's horsepower, fuel economy, lubricity, and filter life.
Emulsify water to be burnt in the engine, reducing the potential for microbial contamination.
Save space and treat your fuel with an additive featuring a 1:5000 treatment ratio.
We got some AFC 705 from Reliable Industries (a local Algae-X Dealer) and had them meet the boat at one of the locks on the ICC. To make a long story short, the AFC took care of the problem. The last time I checked with the boat it had over 200 hours without a filter change and was still going. That was months ago and I have not had any more complaints from the Captain.
Subsequent to Algae-X units, filter change intervals have increased from 100 to 750 hours. Combined with the AFC-705 catalyst, we have noted a reduction of smoke of approx. 80%, and a fuel consumption reduction of 20%. There are also no signs of carbon deposits on injectors or turbos . . . before Algae-x, these components required service every 4-6 months . . . the increase in filter life and fuel economy alone is saving us over $50,000 per year !!

Rarely do you meet anyone who owns 1000 yachts and sailboats. When they speak, we listen! Earlier this year the largest charter company in the world made Algae-X Fuel Conditioners and AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst standard equipment on all new vessels. How many is that? Approximately 250 new yachts a year! Staggering figures for most companies, but not for Sunsail Charter whom already owns over 1000 yachts and sailboats, it's small change.
Last year I installed an Algae-X 500 unit and an Algae-X AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst to my 41" Hatteras Sport Fisherman. Because I am burning cleaner fuel I have eliminated the dirty transom problem caused by smoking diesel fuel and my fuel consumption has dropped from 22 to about 20 gallons per hour.

With the Algae-X devices in place and routine use of the AFC-705 Fuel Catalyst, dirty fuel is one less problem I have to be concerned with.
After I went 'Dead in the Water' in August, I installed one of your Algae-X units. I also added AFC-705 this spring before launching. No more slime or gunk, and each time I checked, my filters were clean. Algae-X works Great!
