Emissions devices such as DPF systems do possess one critical flaw.
These systems are designed to combat emissions through post-combustion measures, meaning that the harmful pollutants are still being created during the engine’s mechanical operation.
Harmful emissions are simply captured through the DPF element of the exhaust system.
To best reduce harmful emissions, it is important to seek pre-combustion measures to combat the reactions that produce these harmful pollutants.
This includes the use of high quality fuel, and maintaining stored fuel for optimized engine operation.
Whether used on their own, or in tandem with systems that utilize a DPF, fuel additives act as a catalyst that optimizes the combustion of the fuel.
In doing so, pollutants are minimized during engine combustion and harmful emissions are reduced.
This is achieved through reducing the amount of unburned fuel that is able to pass through the engine and out the exhaust, providing for a higher-efficiency engine and reduced exhaust emissions.
AFC Fuel Additives has an extended history of reducing exhaust emissions through its use.
Through numerous case studies conducted over its 30+ year history, the use of AFC fuel additive has been linked to increases in fuel efficiency as well as reductions in exhaust emissions such as sulfur oxides (SOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons, smoke/particulate matter, and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
