Benefits

Hot Shot’s Secret Diesel Extreme is a premium 6-in-1 diesel additive, containing the most concentrated detergent formula on the market. Diesel Extreme fuel additive is formulated to resolve issues related to Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel and greatly improve your truck’s performance and fuel economy.

Engineered with specific detergents, Diesel Extreme will safely remove and prevent Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDIDs), External Diesel Injector Deposits (EDID’s) and other forms of varnish and deposits that cause scaring and wear, which leads to premature failure of fuel system components, including fuel pumps and injectors. Diesel Extreme fuel additive also includes a powerful cetane improver, improving your diesel fuel’s cetane rating by seven points, to improve combustibility, horsepower and fuel economy. By improving combustibility, this diesel fuel treatment reduces the number of diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration cycles that are needed. Diesel Extreme also contains a lubricity enhancer to further reduce wear, a water dispersant, rust and corrosion inhibitors and a fuel stabilizer.

Diesel Extreme fuel additive will improve your diesel’s fuel economy, increase horsepower, clean injectors, improves cold starts, eliminate excessive black smoke and improve reliability. This diesel cleaner additive is recommended for use in all diesel engines.

Uses:

Diesel Extreme is extremely effective in middle distillate fuels to improve combustion and ignition efficiency, enhance fuel economy and maintain fuel in a clean, stabilized condition. Hot Shot’s Secret Diesel Extreme is safe in all diesel engines: semi-trucks, pick-up trucks, farm equipment and autos. Including but not limited to: Ford Powerstroke, Dodge Cummins, GM Duramax, Saab, Volkswagen, and Audi.

Hot Shot’s Secret Diesel Extreme is formulated with specific detergents to safely remove and prevent Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDIDs), External Diesel Injector Deposits (EDID’s) and other forms of varnish and deposits. Not all diesel additives on the market will remove IDIDs, as a special detergent is needed.

In order to effectively improve your diesel’s fuel economy, horsepower and combustibility, your fuel system needs to be clean of deposits and run fuel with a high cetane rating. Diesel Extreme not only cleans exceptionally well, it also provides a powerful cetane boost of 7 points. This allows for the fuel to burn more efficiently, increasing performance while also reducing diesel particulate filter (DPF) regenerations. The lubricity additive in Diesel Extreme also increases your fuel’s lubricity, improving protection and reducing wear. This helps combat the ill-effects of Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel.

Diesel Extreme is a fully-formulated 6-in-1 diesel additive that addresses both common and uncommon problems with diesel fuel, making sure your diesel is always running at peak performance.

The introduction of Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) coupled with today’s highly engineered fuel systems are creating new problems for diesel owners. Sulfur was a very good lubricant. The removal of sulfur causes all the moving parts in your fuel system to suffer. Waxy soap deposits that were soluble in higher sulfur content fuels are now being formed and are difficult to filter. Fuel systems incorporating High Pressure Common Rail Injectors operate at higher pressures which create high heat. This heat chemically changes the hydrocarbons in the fuel to longer chain hydrocarbons called asphaltenes, which can block fuel filters. The tolerances for the Common Rail injectors are very tight, sometimes around 1-3 microns. This means even small deposits can cause an injector to stick.

Several sources of sodium and calcium contamination occur from residual refinery salts, storage tanks, ship ballasts and biodiesel catalysts, to name a few. Dodecenyl succinic acid (DDS) and hexadecenyl succinic acid (HDS) are commonly found in certain pipeline corrosion inhibitors, refineries and aftermarket additive packages. When the contamination from the sodium or calcium reacts with the DDS or HDS, carboxylic salts are formed. These carboxylic salts have very low solubility in ULSD and are very difficult to filter. They end up depositing on the internals of your fuel injectors causing what are known as Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDID’s).

Hot Shot’s Secret Diesel Extreme was formulated to resolve these issues. Diesel Extreme is fully formulated with a powerful injector cleaner, cetane improver, neutral and sulfur free lubricity agent, water dispersant, rust and corrosion inhibitor and fuel stabilizer. Diesel Extreme’s injector cleaner specifically cleans IDID’s as well as the original carbon coking External Diesel Injector Deposits (EDID’s) and waxy soap deposits. Diesel Extreme’s powerful injector cleaner will also clean all components of your fuel system, including upper cylinders, fuel tank, fuel pumps and lines. The injector cleaner is also responsible for bringing asphaltenes and glycerides back into solution and preventing further asphaltenes and glycerides from forming.

With your diesel fuel void of carboxylic salts, waxy deposits, asphaltenes and glycerides in suspension, the problems with filter plugging and injector deposits are solved. DDS and HDS acids are neutralized by the injector cleaner to keep more carboxylic salts from forming. Independent testing has shown that power loss is restored up to 87% in the Peugeot CEC F98-08 DW-10 test with the keep clean level of injector cleaner found in Diesel Extreme. It also passes the ASTM D2068 Filter Blocking Test.

The Cetane levels found in diesel fuel in most states are around 42 to 45. The minimum required by ASTM D 975 is 40. Most diesel engines operate more efficiently with a fuel that has a cetane rating of 48 to 50. Fuels with higher cetane burn more efficiently and more completely than those with lower cetane ratings. Diesel Extreme contains a cetane improver that will raise your cetane number 7 points. There are many advantages to an increase cetane numbers. Cold starting is improved, and less black smoke is seen as a result of the improved combustion efficiency. Less hydrocarbons and particulate matter in your exhaust reduce the blocking of your Diesel Particulate Filter and using Diesel Extreme in your fuel has been shown to have 83% less DPF regenerations, saving you time and money. Increased cetane levels have also shown to improve fuel mileage and power. Fleet tests with Diesel Extreme have shown an improvement in fuel mileage up to 7.3% due to the combination of our injector cleaner and cetane improver. This combination is also responsible for restored throttle response.

Diesel Extreme contains a neutral lubricity additive for fuel pump and injectors that has a proven a wear scar reduction of 60µm in ASTM D6079 test. A Military grade non-alcohol-based water dispersant lowers the freeze point of water in fuel over 32°F over competitors water dispersants. With the condensed water in the fuel removed, the major cause of rust, icing in cold weather and the growth of microorganisms in warm weather is inhibited. Diesel Extreme also contains a package that inhibits rust and corrosion in the tank and lines and has a NACE corrosion test rating of A. To round out the package, a specialty fuel stabilizer was chosen that contains anti-oxidants, metal deactivators and dispersants.

    Absolutely Amazing Product!!!

    Andrew

    I’ve owned my 2002 GMC Duramax for 7 years now. I bought it with 68K miles and it currently has 172K miles. Knowing the LB7 is prone to injector problems I knew an additive would help me in the long run. I’ve used Diesel Kleen in the gray bottle in just about every tank since I’ve owned the truck and thought it worked good. That is until a couple weeks ago when my truck started to puff white smoke at idle like a chimney. A guy that works at my local auto parts store told me to try Hot Shots Diesel Extreme before I take my truck to the shop. I put 16 oz. in the tank and topped it off with fuel. I drove it 30 miles to my house and it sat overnight until it was time to go to work the next morning. It started up quicker than normal and didn’t have its normal puff of smoke after starting. I drove 40 miles to work and when I parked the truck I left it running and got out to look at the tail pipe. NO MORE WHITE SMOKE!!! I’m now a believer in your product and will be using only Hot Shot additives from now on. Thank you for making such a great product that actually works! I look forward to trying all your other products in the near future.

    My 2005 passat had injector deviation at 1.0 in cylinders 2 and 4. After adding this driving 5 miles and it sitting overnight all 4 cylinders are .14 deviation basically perfect. Throttle response is greatly improved. I am pleasantly surprised and will use this now in my other 2 diesels regularly.

    5 out of 5 Great Product

    Dave N

    I was just issued a 5 year old peterbilt with a cummins isx. It was a terrible puller up hills, was super noisy and kept getting scr errors related to the dpf…finally, after a close encounter with a derate, someone recommended i use the diesel extreme…I fueled, added the diesel extreme AND topped the oil off with the oil additive to clean the lower half of the engine….After about 20 minutes of driving, the check engine light went off, i noticed a smoother quieter engine and only lost 2mph pulling 73000 pounds up a hill v.s. the usual 10 plus mph drop i was used to….I also noticed the oil temp was 13 degrees cooler…
