ATLANTA, GA, February 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Cummins diesel parts supplier, APM Heavy Duty, talks about the importance of using fuel additives in your diesel truck's fuel tank on a regular basis. These products are a cheap way to improve performance and keep your motor healthy, but for whatever reason many truckers do not buy them.
Granted it can be hard to to believe everything you read (manufacturers of automotive products love to hype up the benefits of what they are selling), but spending a few bucks on a fuel additive is one of the best investments you can make.
Benefits of Fuel Additives
For starters, the increase in fuel economy that you can expect to get will make up for the cost alone. Don't expect a 10 mpg boost, but some drivers have been known to save upwards of 18 percent on their fuel expenditures. As you can see, the savings can add up quickly for individuals that drive hundreds to thousands of miles every week.
Enhanced fuel efficiency is far from the only benefit that additives offer; in short, it is not a far cry to consider them a miracle product for Deutz engines.
According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "Additives were initially made to bring old engines up to par with current federal emission standards, but now they do much more than this. With regular use, they can reduce smoke opacity up to 25 percent during acceleration, emulsify water, improve horsepower and torque, and eliminate carbon buildup. For a few dollars, you simply cannot go wrong."
