Benefits of Dyno Tab Fuel Additives No 5

Reduce Carbon Deposits

The addition of lead to gasoline provided many benefits beyond octane improvement. A little known benefit was deposit control. Lead formed a nonconductive coating that retarded the formation of deposits in the combustion chamber, in the exhaust valve areas and on the spark plugs. When lead was eliminated from gasoline, the use of unleaded gasoline resulted in increased deposits within these critical areas, and related performance problems. Use of the Dyno-tab® technology will restore this deposit-retarding feature to any grade of gasoline. Similar to the coating from the use of leaded gasoline, this barrier is one nanometer thick and non-conductive to electric charges. The sparkplug at left shows this coating. Two important studies verified this phenomenon.
(1) Dynamometer tests were performed using two identical engine blocks with unleaded fuel for the equivalent of 50,000 miles (800 hours total). The test protocol involved running one engine with no additive and one with Dyno-tab® at 15 ppm for 25,000 miles. Deposits were measured and cleaned. The engines were switched and the test repeated, running one engine with Dyno-tab® and one without for 25,000 miles. The results showed a 29% reduction in piston deposit thickness with Dyno-tab® treatment and a reduction in octane requirement increase (ORI).
(2) Similarly, two 1.8-liter engines were operated on the highway for 50,000 miles each. After 50,000 miles, the unleaded fuel engine without Dyno-tab® showed 2.4 times thicker deposit than the Dyno-tab® treated fuel engine and, again, the Dyno-tab® fueled engine showed significantly lower octane requirement increase.
Additional tests performed in Europe confirm the ORI control benefits of Dyno-tab®. Intake Valve Deposits (IVD) are the major cause for the loss of power and performance and for the increase in harmful exhaust gases. IVDs typically develop as the engine accumulates miles, but IVDs can begin to negatively affect engines after as little as 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometers. Returning the engine to "like new"' performance requires that these carbon deposits be removed. Additionally, use of an additive that controls and retards future development of IVDs is important to keeping your engine at peak operating efficiency. Use of Dyno-tab® Fuel Tablets retard the development of IVDs. And, in a documented engine test, the reduction of existing carbon IVDs was 50% greater with Dyno-tab® than with a test gasoline containing a deposit control additive/detergent only.
