EDT+ WINTER DEFENSE is our EVERYDAY DIESEL TREATMENT with added anti-gel properties. It is a fully formulated 7-in-1 diesel treatment to prevent diesel fuel from gelling and icing. It contains a powerful cetane booster, LX4 lubricity additive, keep-clean detergent package and de-icer chemicals.
EDT+ WINTER DEFENSE prevents paraffin wax precipitation during cold weather, by minimizing the size of the wax crystals and allowing the fuel to travel through the fuel filter at temperatures 20°F below the cloud point (wax solidification point) of the diesel fuel.
Add to diesel fuel before wax starts to form (near freezing temperatures). Use at every fill-up. Use the performance dose for additional cetane boost, fuel lubricity, and a lower pour point. Performance dose is required when temperatures are below 0°F.
Fuel treated with EDT+ Winter Defense becomes a “PREMIUM” diesel fuel. The cetane improver in EDT+ consists of special nitrates which are pro-oxidants, and which speed up the oxidative process of fuels during combustion, giving more power and improved mileage. EDT+ provides significantly increased ignition efficiency with all diesel fuels. In addition, EDT+ prevents gum and sludge formation. Corrosion is prevented by an inhibitor which produces a protective non-deposit-forming film on metal surfaces in the fuel system and which neutralizes corrosive acids formed during combustion. An important component of EDT+ is a special demulsifier which disperses condensed moisture. Condensed water in fuels is a major cause of rust, icing in cold weather and the growth of microorganisms in warm weather. Operation of diesel engines is noticeably improved when corrosion and growth of bacteria are prevented. EDT+ contains an exclusive polar lubricity additive to prevent wear without altering fuel viscosity.
EDT+ is extremely effective in middle distillate fuels to improve combustion and ignition efficiency, enhance fuel economy and maintain fuel in a clean, stabilized condition. The sulfur content of this diesel fuel additive does not exceed 15 ppm
The reason for better performance with EDT+ is that cetane improvement in the fuel gives a smoother, less erratic pressure buildup in the combustion chamber during the ignition delay period which occurs between injection and ignition.
Controlling this pressure buildup with EDT+ eliminates potential damage to piston rings and rod bearings
Power and fuel economy are increased as fuel burns more evenly and cleanly. Misfiring is controlled. When ignition improves, emissions are reduced, and noise levels are lowered. Controlling the pressure build-up allows more complete burning of the refractive molecules in the fuel, which steal power and produce deposits and wear.
