If you have a diesel truck and are located in any part of the country where it gets really, I mean, really cold, then you know about treating your diesel fuel in order to avoid diesel gelling. Hot Shot’s Secret understands this and makes sure to help diesel owners don’t have any fuel-related issues due to cold temperatures. That is exactly why they created EDT+ Winter Defense.
This formulated fuel additive helps your low-sulfur diesel become a premium fuel. The cetane improver in EDT+ consists of special nitrates which are pro-oxidants that speed up the oxidative process of fuels during combustion, giving more power and improved mileage. EDT+ also provides significantly increased ignition efficiency with all diesel fuels.
In addition, EDT+ prevents gum and sludge formation. This corrosion is prevented by an inhibitor which produces a protective non-deposit-forming film on metal surfaces in the fuel system which neutralizes corrosive acids formed during combustion.
Water in diesel fuel is a big concern, and the cause of diesel gelling. That is why an important component of EDT+ is a special demulsifier that disperses condensed moisture. Condensed water in fuels is a major cause of rust, icing in cold weather, and the growth of microorganisms in warm weather. The operation of diesel engines is noticeably improved when corrosion and growth of bacteria are prevented. EDT+ contains an exclusive polar lubricity additive to prevent wear without altering fuel viscosity.
EDT+ is extremely effective at improving combustion and ignition efficiency, enhancing fuel economy, and maintaining fuel in a clean, stabilized condition. The sulfur content of this diesel fuel additive does not exceed 15 ppm
The reason for better performance with EDT+ is that cetane improvement in the fuel gives a smoother, less erratic pressure buildup in the combustion chamber during the ignition delay period which occurs between injection and ignition.
Power and fuel economy are increased as fuel burns more evenly and cleanly. Misfiring is controlled. When ignition improves, emissions are reduced, and noise levels are lowered. Controlling the pressure build-up allows more complete burning of the refractive molecules in the fuel, which steal power and produce deposits and wear.
Add to diesel fuel before wax (diesel gelling) starts to form (near freezing temperatures). Use at every fill-up. Use the performance dose for additional cetane boost, fuel lubricity, and a lower pour point. Hot Shot’s Secret recommends a performance dose when temperatures are below zero degrees.
