Demand for fuel-efficient diesel treatment rises with oil prices

High fuel prices and its potential to treat Diesel Bug have resulted in increased demand for COUNTDown Zero, according to fuel treatment maker Highspeed Group.

"COUNTDown Zero is an established fuel treatment, reducing particulate emissions, protecting pumps and injectors and improving fuel consumption," says Highspeed Group managing director David Mears. "However, since the introduction of biocide to the product, we've seen growing demand from our golf and sports customers.

"The biocide acts against diesel bug (diesel bacteria) and, with the warmer weather coming and greater condensation in diesel storage tanks, COUNTDown Zero can be of great help."

COUNTDown Zero is suitable for all diesel engines. The most efficient treatment is to dose the main diesel tank used to fill all machinery and vehicles. An economical 1,000:1 treatment ratio is normally used, or 500:1 for diesel infected by diesel bacteria.
