owner operators have tried hundreds of ways to save fuel whether it is with oil
additives, fuel heaters, or magnets. You name it, it has been tried. About the
only thing that works seems to be a Cetane
number boost to raise octane of the fuel, or acetone added to the fuel
to clean out carbon deposits in the diesel motors. This will help with
mileage, but these are not, "cost effective."
What is Cetane Number?
Cetane number or CN is
a measurement of the combustion quality of diesel fuel
during compression ignition. It is a significant expression of diesel fuel
quality among a number of other measurements that determine overall diesel fuel
Cetane number is actually a measure of a fuel's ignition delay; the
time period between the start of injection and start of combustion (ignition)
of the fuel. In a particular diesel engine, higher cetane fuels will have
shorter ignition delay periods than lower cetane fuels. Cetane numbers are only
used for the relatively light distillate diesel oils. For heavy (residual) fuel
oil two other scales are used CCAI and CII.
most efficient diesel motor ever produced is only 52% efficient which only
gives 48% of the fuel you buy is going out your stacks. Newer motors offer what
is called a Particulate Exhaust system. It might be a little
greener but isn't better on fuel. Another failing attempt manufacturers have
tried is to recycle the exhaust with a second turbo, but this also does
little by adding only 1 or 2/10ths of a mile per gallon in fuel costs.
has dropped considerably on every diesel in the country since No.2 diesel
started being replaced with Low Sulfur Diesel and Ultra-Low
Sulfur Diesel fuels. The horsepower in your truck has dropped as well.
Taking the sulfur out of the fuel reduces the cetane level! What we want to do
is introduce you to a way to raise cetane number level back up that is cost
What is an Ultra-Low
Sulfur Diesel fuel (ULSD)?
diesel is a term used to describe a standard for defining diesel fuel
with substantially lowered sulfur contents. As of 2006, almost all of the petroleum-based
diesel fuel available in Europe and North America
is of a ULSD type.
The move to lower
sulfur content is expected to allow the application of newer emissions control
technologies that should substantially lower emissions of particulate matter
from diesel engines.
Ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel was proposed by EPA as a new standard for
the sulfur content in on-road diesel fuel sold in the United States
since October 15, 2006, except for rural Alaska.
California has required it since September 1,
2006, and rural Alaska
will transition all diesels to ULSD in 2010. This new regulation applies to all
diesel fuel, diesel fuel additives and distillate fuels blended with diesel for
on-road use, such as kerosene; however, it does not yet apply to railroad
locomotives, marine, or off road uses. By December 1, 2010, all highway diesel
fuel will be ULSD. Non-road diesel fuel was required to move to 500 ppm
sulfur in 2007 and further to ULSD in 2010. Railroad locomotive and marine
diesel fuel also moved to 500 ppm sulfur in 2007, and will change to ULSD
in 2012. There are exemptions for small refiners of nonroad, locomotive and
marine diesel fuel that allow for 500 ppm diesel to remain in the system
until 2014. After December 1, 2014 all highway, nonroad, locomotive and marine
diesel fuel produced and imported will be ULSD.
laws of physics state, that if you use an energy source and try to produce more
of that same energy from
it, you will end up with a loss; however, if you use a low combustible fuel
like diesel to produce direct current power and turn that into hydrogen a
highly combustible fuel, feed it back into the motor, you will receive a
gain, as well as increase the horsepower. This will result in less fuel being
used and more horsepower available as well.
Diesel Performance units will use the same amount of power as your headlights.There is some electrical power coming from
your motor that doesn't cost any money by putting a strain on the
electrical system. That same power can be used to produce a burnable fuel
that you can use in your diesel motor.
is an enormous factor in the hydrogen unit.
Hydrogen and oxygen is introduced into an internal combustion engine
will increase the temperature of the burn dramatically, and this will
tell the ECU that its burning hot, the sensors relay this information, to
identify that fuel mixture is too rich and starts cutting back on the fuel to
compensate for the temperature until the desired running temperature is
achieved. This process takes only
seconds and will not cause the motor to run lean, it merely means more
of the fuel is being burned, and will bring the fuel burn temperature into the
manufacturers figure. This will also increase the horsepower because more of
the diesel is being burned, combined with a longer power stroke (due to the
hydrogen's effect on the burn).
What is an ECU?
control unit (ECU) is a type of electronic control unit that determines
the amount of fuel, ignition timing and other parameters an internal combustion engine needs to keep
running. It does this by reading values from multidimensional maps which contain values calculated by sensor devices
monitoring the engine.
Hydrogen and Oxygen is introduced into a diesel motor combustion chamber, and
the piston comes up to the Top Dead
Centre, the diesel will ignite. The
hydrogen is ignited at the same time which will give you a longer power
stroke. Since hydrogen is about eight
times more flammable than gasoline, and oxygen completes the burns of both the
hydrogen and diesel. The unit will
increase the amount of oxygen available for each combustion
stroke to improve the performance by adding more oxygen, just as the turbo
charger does to increase mileage.
What is the Top Dead
The Tope Dead Centre (TDC) is the position of a piston in
which it is farthest from or nearest to, the crankshaft
in the reciprocating engine.
Diesel Performance would like to introduce a product that will provide better
fuel efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and increase the performance of your
engine. The product is virtually
maintenance free, except for adding distilled water. The unit will not overheat or freeze during
the winter months and can run non stop day after day without problems. Will generate minimal amount of power and
will remove all carbon from your engine, reducing the frequency if oil and
increasing the horsepower.
