What is Cetane?

deasel-cetane-boost

 

Cetane numbers are used to indicate the combustion speed of diesel fuel. Diesel fuels with higher cetane ratings have shorter ignition delays, providing more complete combustion and allowing engines to operate more effectively.

Although diesel engines operate best on fuel with a cetane value of 50 or higher, most diesel fuel sold in North America has a cetane value of between 40-45. AMSOIL Diesel Cetane Boost effectively raises the cetane number of diesel fuel up to seven points, improving its ignition quality and leading to better engine performance.

  • Delivers maximum horsepower
  • Increases fuel economy
  • Improves startability
  • Smooths idle
  • Reduces smoke and emissions

If your Cetane isn’t at 50 your diesel fuel likely isn’t burning completely thus lost power and mileage. One AMSOIL bottle of cetane boost can significantly boost performance saving you more than the cost of the product. In the store I call it free money. When you pull a load you’ll love the results. OTR trucking owners may find the 5-gallon pail the most advantageous!! Order ACB05.

Half gallon size is like buying 4-16 ounce bottles and paying for three (treats up to 640 gallons). The small 16 ounce bottle treats 80 to 160 gallons.  Call me to order a case for the best possible price (lower than online).. 605-274-2580
