Gelling - Fungus - Bacteria - Mould Challenges

Q: What other additives are required to be used with Shellbourne Fuels Diesel or Gasoline Enhancers?

A: None. There is no need to purchase any other additive to use in conjunction with Shellbourne's Enhancers as they speak to most fuel-related issues encountered today. as fuels keep changing, prior to arrival at the Pump, so do the Shellbourne Enhancers. They are updated 3 times annually.

Using Shellbourne Fuels' liquid fuel enhancers,you can look forward to:

  • Instant start in temperatures between 140°F to Minus-45°F (eliminates the need to buy anti-gel or gas-line anti-freeze;
  • Keeps fuel in solution eliminating separation, where moisture accumulates in base of fuel tankElimination of moisture due to the incorporated evaporator;
  • Cuts emissions 60-75% by increasing combustion and driving power to where its needed;
  • Improves fuel lubricity;
  • Diesel enhancers contain anti-bacteria, anti-fungal, anti-gel agents.


Q: How do Shellbourne Fuels' Products Differ from what is found on the shelf at corner gas'?

A: The answer is simply to measure other products against standard features found in Shellbourne Fuels products. The question previous highlights important aspects.

For example, Shellbourne's enhancers:

  • Treat wall-mounted debris and dirt in the reservoir tank;
  • Loosen any debris in the fuel transfer pump & associated lines;
  • Bind to any water or condensation build-up in fuel filter mechanisms, dislodges & dissolves under fuel pressure any debris, particulates, sediment, Silica & heavy fuel build-up particles and causes them to be used in the combustion process.

Leaky Containers

from DieselPlace Forum: "How do you store or transport your fuel additive? Just wondering what people use to transport their additives around? I have only used 2 tanks of fuel, but I'm already seeing that keeping an opened bottle of Power Service under the seat isn't going to work -- it leaks no matter how hard I shut it, but it won't open back up!....."

We respond:

Leakage is a definite challenge with many fuel additive containers.

Shellbourne Fuels liquid Enhancers and aggressive commercial fuel line cleaners, and Semi-synthetic (17%) Motor Oils. are packaged in containers that normally do not leak.

Their containers are manufactured in strict ISO 9001:2000 facilities and plastics specifications are of the highest in the industry. Bottle liners are F217 chemical resistant and memory set for repeated opening procedures.

That said: if container is treated harshly (dropped) there may be some undesirable consequences. Under normal circumstances, they do not leak.

It still is good practice to store containers in the upright position.

About those Cab Heaters

Question: Can Shellbourne Fuels' products be used in a Wabasso Heater or S Fire Heaters used on trucks to keep the cabs warm and idling?

A: Yes. One of our Clients writes:

"We have experience with a pro heat unit that’s fed with the same diesel fuel that operates and drives our truck. The diesel fuel catalyst has worked perfectly. Provided us the efficiency we expected."

That said: We are unfamiliar with "S fire heater". But, if you feed it kerosene or stove oil or diesel fuel or furnace oil or oil drippings or heated bunker oil then Shellbourne Fuels' Bunker Fuel Enhancer or its Diesel Fuel Enhancer will be absolutely 100% perfect and will yield fuel efficiency and improved heated air.

"Best Answer - Chosen by Voters' on ASK.com re: How does Water mix with Diesel Fuel?

A: Water does not mix with diesel fuel. Its specific gravity is heavier so the fuel sits on top of the water.

If your question is: how does water get into the fuel tank, you can look to sources such as:

  • a rainy day when the tanker truck filled the underground tanks at the gas station;
  • deteriorated underground tanks at gas station that allows water to seep in;
  • condensation in your vehicle's fuel tank, generally arising from the new green fuel additives mandated by the Government that are put into the pump fuel long before it is delivered to the gas station.
