Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment




Ethanol-blended fuels such as E10 and E15 are modern fuels mandated by the US EPA and approved for today’s automobile market; however, ethanol-blended fuels are not designed for infrequent use as seen in Power Sports, Marine and small engine applications. Ethanol is an alcohol, and alcohols have corrosive properties- especially when in the presence of moisture. Today’s oxygenated and ethanol gasoline blended fuel can begin to break down in as little as 30 days. E10 gasoline, if left untreated, could begin to oxidize or turn sour in as little as 30 days. Today’s ethanol blended fuels also have the tendency to draw moisture out of humid air, making it prone to cause corrosion to your engine and fuel system.

Untreated fuel could lead to expensive fuel system repairs once the fuel degrades. Ethanol fuels such as 87 E-10 also contain higher levels of oxygen. Oxygenated fuels tend to degrade quickly and attract unwanted moisture that can lead to internal engine corrosion. Once oxidation reaction begins and insoluble by-products (gum) form, it is impossible to reverse the reaction, nor will the stabilizer dissolve the gum. A quality fuel treatment such as Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment maximizes the storage life of many fuels and protects fuel systems by increasing resistance to oxidation.

Keeps fuel fresh for up to 1 year

Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment contains special antioxidants that protects against the harmful effects of the oxidation process that occurs when fuel is stored for extended periods to prevent the formation of varnish and sludge which can clog injectors, stick floats and cause poor engine performance. For best results, treat every new tank of fuel with Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment.

Advanced Corrosion Protection

Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment has chemical corrosion inhibitors that form a protective barrier on fuel system components to guard against corrosion. Ethanol and other alcohols have trace organic acids that, when in the presence of moisture, become corrosive to soft metals, most plastics, and rubber fuel system components.

Improves engine performance year round

Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment is designed to offer easier starting, maximum power output, and optimal fuel economy. Engineered, tested, and approved by Volvo Penta to keep your engine running cleaner, smoother, and more efficiently.

Contains no Alcohol

Alcohol is often added to some manufacturers' products as means of suspending additional water in solution to prevent what’s known as “Phase Separation”. Additional alcohol when added to E10 fuel is not safe for your engine as it increases the alcohol content to greater than the 10% maximum that most manufacturers, including Volvo Penta, warn users not to exceed. Volvo Penta Fuel Treatment offers effective fuel system stability and corrosion protection and does not contain alcohol.

Volvo Penta Ethanol Fuel Treatment is sold in 12 ounce bottles with a treat ratio of 1 oz per 5 gallons. When ordering please remember that because of postal regulations for the United States, we may only sell to customers who can accept ground transportation as the shipping method. This also means that there is no expedited shipping available for this product.
