AMSOIL Diesel Fuel Modifier treats and cleans the fuel system of automotive and light truck Diesel and Kerosene engines to improve overall vehicle performance.

Diesel and Kerosene fuel contains impurities that adversely affect engine performance. When Diesel fuel is left untreated, deposits can accumulate on fuel injectors, intake valves, the combustion chamber and other system components. A plugged fuel injector emits an uneven spray pattern, which reduces fuel combustion efficiency and increases exhaust emissions. Diesel and Kerosene fuel is also susceptible to low temperature gelling, which hinders engine start-up. Finally, during combustion, Diesel and Kerosene fuel produces corrosive acids that damage components.

The special detergents and dispersants in AMSOIL ADM dissolve and remove deposits on system components for reduced emissions, increased fuel economy and extended component life. The deicing properties in AMSOIL ADM lower the pour point of Diesel or Kerosene fuel for improved cold weather starting. AMSOIL ADM also contains rust and corrosion inhibitors to prevent moisture penetration and fuel stabilizers to keep Diesel or Kerosene fuel safe during storage.


Frequent Diesel and Kerosene fuel filter changes and cleaning Diesel and Kerosene fuel tanks have become acceptable periodic maintenance instead of a warning signal for Diesel and Kerosene engine failure. Diesel or Kerosene Fuel filter elements should last a thousand hours or more, and injectors some 15,000 hours. However, since Diesel and Kerosene fuel is inherently unstable, solids begin to form and the accumulating tank sludge will eventually clog your Diesel or Kerosene fuel filters, ruin your injectors and cause Diesel and Kerosene engines to smoke.

The solids that form as the result of the inherent instability of the Diesel and Kerosene fuel and the natural process of degradation will accumulate in the bottom of your fuel tank. The sludge will form a coating or bio-film on the walls and baffles of the fuel tank, plug your fuel filters and impact combustion efficiency. Eventually fouled Diesel and Kerosene fuel will clog fuel lines and ruin your equipment.

Filter plugging can have several causes and often critical consequences. For example, low temperatures can cause wax crystallization, which can lead to fuel filter plugging. An example would be using summer Diesel and Kerosene fuel in cold weather. Wax or paraffin is part of the Diesel and Kerosene fuel.

Contaminant build up resulting from excessive microbial growth and bio-degradation of Diesel and Kerosene fuel can cause fuel filter plugging. Micro-organisms, bacteria and enzyme activity, fungus, yeast and mold cause Diesel and Kerosene fuel degradation and the formation of waste products. The process is similar to milk turning into cottage cheese, a different form of milk. Of all the microbial debris and waste products in the Diesel and Kerosene fuel tank only about .01% is bugs. Even though microbes may cause and accelerate the process of fuel degradation, it should be clear that the waste products clogging your filter are not the microbes but fuel components which have formed solids.

Frequently, the application of a biocide aggravates the situation and turns bio-film into solids, creating a real fuel filter nightmare. Bio film develops through out the entire Diesel and Kerosene fuel system. It grows in the water fuel interface and on the walls, baffles, and bottoms of fuel storage tanks. An unlucky end user may be filling up his fuel tank and getting this debris delivered as a part of his Diesel and Kerosene fuel, for the same price as the Diesel and Kerosene fuel.

'Chemical Based' Biocide or Change our Capsule every year...?

BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsules provide a Fuel Management System that will provide all users of diesel fuel with protection, performance, fuel economy and lower maintenance costs. It doesn’t matter if your diesel engine is on a sailboat, large recreational fishing cruiser, luxury yacht, heavy truck or equipment, involves a large diesel fuel consumer with multiple storage tanks, or industrial back-up generation systems. The BioGuard-Diesel System solves your diesel fuel problems and Fast.

You may need to start by determining if you have a problem. If you’re thinking about it, then you probably do. Look first for the symptoms of diesel fuel deterioration: clogged and slimy filters, dark, hazy fuel, sludge build up in tanks, loss of power and rpm, excessive exhaust smoke, corroded and pitted injectors, or foul smelling fuel.

If you have been treating your diesel fuel with a biocide, but still find you have the symptoms of fuel deterioration, you have looked far enough. Commonly used chemical testing procedures will show a negative presence of bacterial and fungal growth as a result of the biocides. Concluding that the fuel is in acceptable condition and the fuel system is healthy because of the lack of active bacterial or fungal growth would be a misinterpretation of test results. This does not mean that the diesel fuel is in acceptable condition.

Other 'Liquid' products such as Liqui-Cult should not be used to determine if the diesel fuel is within specifications but rather determine a baseline for diesel fuel condition. If your diesel fuel system demonstrates the symptoms outlined above, procedures for removal of water in the tank bottom should be the first step. The extent of water contamination can be determined using Kolor Kut Water Finding Paste on a rod inserted into the tank. A small siphon can be used to determine the condition (visual signs of growth) of the water. If a large amount of water is present, it should be pumped out. Since every tank configuration is unique, and sometimes the access to a tank is only the fuel filler neck, it may be necessary for you to customize a soft copper pipe to snake into the bottom of the tank. Pump the water from the tank bottom into a bucket for proper disposal. After all the free water that can be removed has been removed, small residual amounts of water can be delt with using the AFC-705 Diesel Fuel Catalyst. The AFC additive will emulsify the residual water and allow it to be circulated during the next phase of the fuel polishing process. Using a water-block filter in the TCK, MTC or FPS system will remove the emulsified water from the fuel.

After the BioGuard-Diesel Fuel Management System has done its job, test again to monitor diesel fuel quality and periodically as necessary. Monitor the presence of other factors the “symptoms” noted before installation of the BGD Capsule(s) to confirm that the system is performing to your expectations.

As an ongoing preventative maintenance procedure, water in the fuel tank can be dealt with by using the Water Eliminator. The Water Eliminator can be kept in the tank and monitored at each refueling to determine the presence of water. Additional diesel fuel filtration and water removal can be achieved with the installation of a supplemental Fuel Filter/Water Separator.

The addition of BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsule will enhance and accelerate the tank cleaning process by breaking down, dispersing, and dissolving existing tank sludge and slime, stabilize and restore fuel quality, decontaminate compartments of the tank that are out of reach of the suction line, and eliminating costly tank cleaning and fuel disposal fees. Treatment with BioGuard-Diesel produces clear, bright, and usable Diesel Fuel. Save your money! Use BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsules provides peak engine performance: removes and prevents carbon build up, improves combustion, lowers fuel consumption, adds lubricity to low sulfur fuel, prevents corrosion of injectors, reduces harmful emissions, and extends equipment life.

Installation of the BioGuard-Diesel Capsule in most instances, is an easy do-it-yourself process. Simply install the BioGuard-Diesel Capsule into your Fuel Tank or Fuel Line and that's it.  It's that simple.

BioGuard-Diesel only works, however, when the diesel fuel circulates through it in order to maintain the clear and bright character of the fuel that is critical to optimum performance. Digital fuel flow recording meters and a fuel pressure gauge showing pressure drop can assist in determining when fuel filters need changed, instead of changing the filter at a predetermined, arbitrary interval.

In applications where automatic periodic polishing is necessary, unattended remote treatment poses risks. The BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsule is ideal for critical back-up generator systems (hospitals, data centers, emergency police/fire departments, etc.) or large marine applications.

Many commercial and industrial maintenance operations require the cleaning and treatment of multiple tank systems. In situations where a marina services multiple vessels, a service operation must treat back-up generator facilities in numerous locations, or an industrial facility has numerous tanks distributed over far-reaching locations.

If you are a small business owner that utilizes low-volume tanks and need only occasional fuel cleaning and polishing, a farmer that needs to treat fuel tanks on only a couple pieces of equipment or a generator, or a homeowner that wants to maintain their own backup power generator, sometimes bigger is not better. BioGuard-Diesel is ideal for economical treatment of diesel fuel.

The results of utilizing the BioGuard-Diesel System can only be fully appreciated after your own investment in a system, but there are numerous reports that demonstrate that installations greatly benefit both small and large volume installations. A U.S. Coast Guard report provides a bottom-line analysis showing a recovery of investment within six months, demonstrating the breadth of system benefits.

The quality of diesel fuel has been on a steady decline since 1973. With today's poor quality fuels, breakdown, hesitation, filter clogging, injector malfunctions, erratic combustion efficiency, intolerable emissions, moisture, sludge, algae, fungus and poor fuel economy are common problems.

Additionally, since more of the fuel is being burned, less is going out the stacks. Most of the visual smoke from diesel exhaust is just raw unburned fuel.

By promoting more complete combustion, BioGuard-Diesel can reduce emissions as high as 50% to 90%.

In conclusion, it should be recognized that BioGuard-Diesel improves the performance characteristics of all grades of diesel fuel. It may be used in any type of diesel-powered engine, either stationary, vehicular or marine.

Does your diesel fuel look like this?

Consider these facts.

FACT: ALL fuel producers admit that diesel fuel is inherently unstable. This instability causes diesel fuels to form sludge and or insoluble organic particulates. Both asphaltene compounds (sludge) and particulates may contribute to build up in injectors and particulates can clog fuel filters plus add to the service issues common to diesel engines.

Diesel fuel contamination problems have two different areas to consider, biology and chemistry.

What Are Biofuels?

Biofuels are fuels made from recently living organisms. They can be divided into three categories:

    • First-generation biofuels are made largely from edible sugars and starches.
    • Second-generation biofuels are made from nonedible plant materials.
    • Third-generation biofuels are made from algae and microbes.

Chevron is active in all three biofuels categories. We are a major buyer and blender of first-generation biofuels, primarily ethanol. In the United States alone, more than 70 percent of the gasoline Chevron sells contains ethanol.

We also conduct research on second- and third-generation biofuels, which we refer to as "advanced." Advanced biofuels could pla

The Process of Ionization

Once you get the tanks clean you can reduce the likely hood of recontamination by keeping your tanks topped up whenever possible. When tanks are less than (mostly), full the moist air will quickly convert your tanks to a reasonably efficient watermaker - which settles to the bottom of the tank. This is where the critters thrive. A good diesel additive which contains a biocide which BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsules will help. The BioGuard-Diesel Ionizing Capsules offers good results. Since 9 out of 10 engine failures can be traced to fuel problems (having twins won't help much), any and everthing you can do, you should do. Bottom line, the best prevention is run the boat a lot and keep adding fresh fuel (not always an option).

More realistically, your sludge is made of several things, including the settling out of ashphaltine components which are present in all diesel fuel. <

Diesel Bug - Get it Out

Joe, your diesel is suffering from what's called Diesel Bug. There is always water in diesel, and the bacteria (bug) lives on the interface between the water and diesel.

In the UK, we use additives a great deal, and we've found there's only one which works completely. It's called Soltron, and it's available pretty well everywhere.

The Soltron enzyme eats the bug, and ingests dead buig as well, such that the residue naturally passes through all the filters to be burnt in the engine. Furthermore it consumes the water in the diesel.

The public challenge of Soltron is to find them a tank that's heavily contaminated, and their product will cure it. It might take some heavy dosing, but it's easier and simpler than steam cleaning.

As I said, in the UK we use additives. In the USA, I see people tend to use Fuel Polishers. Additives are simpler.

Wisconsin opens raw milk door

Source: Associated Press
MADISON, Wis. – Proponents of unpasteurized milk hope a victory in “America’s Dairyland” will encourage other states to legalize sales and make it more available nationwide.

Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle has indicated he will sign a bill allowing farms to sell raw milk directly to consumers through 2011. Although the bill is limited in scope, advocates who’ve worked for years promoting raw milk say legalization in Wisconsin could lead to broader acceptance nationwide.

“It’s the best state this could have happened in for us,” said Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Washington-based Weston A. Price Foundation, a non-profit group that advocates drinking raw milk.

The federal government doesn’t allow sales of raw milk because of concerns about food-borne illness, but states can allow them as long as the milk
