Diesel Additives For Performance & Efficiency

  • Exocet Diesel Supreme is a premium diesel additive that enhances fuel performance by improving pulling power. It also leads to easier starting and smoother running, and longer life expectancy of the engine. It even minimises diesel knock and engine noise. Combustion efficiency is also improved, which lowers emissions and helps to keep the fuel system and injector clean.
  • Exocet Power Restorer is a diesel fuel additive formulated to restore fuel flow and engine power in modern diesel engines. It breaks down deposits, like metal salts or very thin layers of lacquer, that build up overtime in diesel fuel injection systems. These deposits reduce engine power, so this fuel additive works to restore that power. It even has a potential fuel economy benefit.
  • Exocet Gas Oil Extra improves pulling power and leads to easier starting and smoother running. It also compensates for the reduction of sulphur in green diesel. It reduces sludge and fuel tank contamination and leads to lower particle, smoke, and nox emissions. It’s typically used for airport vehicles, horticultural and agricultural machinery, fork lift trucks, and construction equipment.
Exocet Anti Bug Kill Fuel Additive

Diesel Bug Additive

  • If you notice a slimy black or light brown substance blocking your fuel filters, it could be bug infestation. The Exocet Anti-Bug Kill additive prevents and stops bacterial growth in your fuel tank, eliminates gauge and filter blockages, and protects against tank and pipe corrosion. 

Cooker & Home Heating Oil Additives

  • Exocet Premium Heating Oil Additive is a premium heating oil additive. It protects your fuel tank and pipework from corrosion, ensures more complete combustion, increases fuel shelf life, and improves system efficiency.
  • Exocet Aga Cooker Additive improves the ‘burn quality’ of domestic kerosene for range-style cookers and boilers, or when vaporising burners are used. It does this by improving combustion performance, decreasing Char value, and maintaining a clean burner for longer. It also reduces the build-up of soot and carbon deposits, which can cause poor controllability and variable heat output. It even minimises the chances of fuel tank corrosion and increases fuel shelf life.
