Fuel tank cleaner
Algae and bacteria flourish in moist environments such as the fuel tank of diesel cars. Water enters the tank due to condensation and during refuelling. Fuel suppliers must mix a percentage of biodiesel with normal diesel oil. Biodiesel is hygroscopic and attracts water. Once bacteria are in the fuel tank, their numbers will constantly increase and sludge will develop. The sludge threatens the fuel supply to the engine and can damage the fuel pump and injectors. JLM additives clean and prevent algae
from growing and affecting the performance of the car.
It may sound unlikely, but the fuel tank also needs maintenance. Car manufacturers have a good reason for placing a filter in the tank beyond the fuel pump. The filter is necessary to collect any contaminants before they can enter the fuel lines. However, what the filter does not do is absorb moisture. And it is precisely that moisture which is disastrous for the sensitive components of the fuel system.
For example, moisture allows algae to grow in the diesel tank. It goes without saying that the algae will then proliferate. It is only a matter of time until the entire intake path becomes clogged. This applies to all fuel systems: moisture affects the material it comes into contact with. JLM has developed additives that prevent algae growth and deposits of dirt and moisture. Preventive maintenance of the intake path prevents valuable damage to components such as injectors, the catalytic converter and the diesel particulate filter.
