4+ is a brand that represents the science behind modern diesel engines and ultra low sulphur diesel fuel. The days of 'fuel conditioners' and 'additives' are gone!
4+ Fuel Science brings you to the 21st century with 3rd generation technology. Smart operators who understand diesel performance and demand the ultimate in performance and cost reduction use 4+ fuel science products. Join the smart set today.
In a recent survey, 4+ users told us that they enjoy four main benefits from 4+ Products
Improved Fuel Economy
Clean, Quick Starting
More Pulling Power
PLUS more..... other benefits users reported........
Cleaner Exhaust - Lower Emissions
Improved Filter Life
Reduced DPF Regeneration
4+ Fuel products offer you all 4 of these benefits PLUS much more. When you use 4+ Fuel Products, you are making a SMART decision that will pay you back with benefits you may not even have thought about, including:
Low treatment costs (Calculate the cost to treat a gallon of fuel, instead of looking at the container price tag).
Enduring reliable quality backed by a team of experts who know diesel engines inside out. Which other additive manufacturer can offer that?
Peace of Mind in knowing that 4+ products are safe for all engines, including those with DPF and Urea exhaust systems.
Reduced Emissions – 4+ Additives are environmentally friendly and contribute greatly to the reduction of Green House Gases.
The importance of 'Super Concentrate'. What it means to you.
When fuel additives are blended, there is a process that takes place that means a lot to you in terms of value.
The base products that do the work in a fuel additive are called 'Active Ingredients'. These are chemical substances that may include things like:
Anti-Foulants or Detergents
Emulsifiers or Demulsifiers
Pour Point Depressants
Based on what the additive blender is trying to achieve, all of or a combination of these 'active ingredients' are blended together and immersed in a solvent, which are normally petroleum based liquids or mineral oils. Here is the big issue: Believe it or not, some additives in the market contain as little as 3% active ingredient, while the handful of good products available contain 75% to 100% active ingredients.
So how can you tell good from not so good? Simple: In general terms the lighter in colour, the more solvent and the less active ingredient. This may not hold true when the main ingredient of the additive is an alcohol derivative.
All 4+ Additives contain high levels of active ingredient, and we always stick to the manufacturer's recommendations in terms of treatment rates as they are supplied in ppm (parts per million). For users of 4+ product, this strategy offers several advantages:
Lower Treatment Costs - Because our products are so concentrated, they typically treat more fuel than others (just compare).
High concentration levels mean that we are able to offer true multi-functional products in one container ( for example, 4+ Premium contains 8 active ingredients and 4+ Arctic contains 9).
Value for money - High concentration of active ingredient means that you are buying active ingredient not solvent.
Reduced shipping costs - We don't have to ship as much product as the typical additive blender does, and we pass the savings on to you.
Environmental Responsibility - Lower shipping costs translate into lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
What BioArmor is and what it does.
In fuel lubricity tests conducted at the University of Saskatchewan by Dr. Barry Hertz a leader in fuel lubricity science, we found that adding a small amount of Canola-based bio lubricant to our synthetic lubricity agents improved lubricity in ULSD by 17%. BioArmor is the name that we coined for this lubricant because it works deep within your fuel system and engine to reduce friction and improve fuel mileage. At the same time, we realize that larger quantities of bio-lubricants can add to cold-weather problems, so the amount of this product is kept very low to provide the optimum amount of protection without risking freezing.
