For better starting and overall performance
Additives are extra substances that are added to oil or fuel in small quantities. LIQUI MOLY additives are specially formulated to improve performance, combat problems and protect against them. LIQUI MOLY Marine Diesel Protection, for example, offers a high level of efficiency in combating bacteria, yeasts and molds and disinfects diesel tank systems affected by bacterial contamination. The cleaning components contained in the product ensure the optimum cleanliness of the entire fuel system. The additional corrosion protection safeguards metallic components perfectly. The cetane booster ensures easy starting after the engine is taken out of storage. The highest possible engine performance is guaranteed. Always pay attention to the correct dosage when using additives, as the optimum effect is only guaranteed with the correct mixing ratio.
Diesel pest: small organisms, big problems
Additives tested - what do they really do?
Two control samples were created for the test. One sample a mixture of diesel fuel WITHOUT additive and 0.5% water, the other diesel fuel WITH additive and 0.5% water. Both mixtures were exposed to three microorganisms (bacteria, yeast and fungi).
After an incubation period of 21 days, we analysed how many microorganisms were killed, if any, or whether there was an increase. In the sample WITHOUT additives, organisms spread rapidly, in the mixture WITH additives, after just 7 days there were no more detectable microorganisms. After 21 days, no more microorganisms appeared.
We therefore recommend the highly effective Marine Diesel Protection from LIQUI MOLY.
