In response to the changing engine needs of the marketplace, Penray now offers two advanced fuel additives designed to remove harmful deposits from the fuel system in today's cars and light trucks. In addition, Penray has recently introduced a 2-step professional service kit designed specifically for removing carbon buildup from the backs of intake valves in gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines.
For complete fuel system cleaning in both gasoline and light duty diesel-powered vehicles, Penray offers its Direct Injection Fuel System Cleaner #2113. “This product, formulated and manufactured in the U.S., is particularly effective in dissolving and cleaning debris and particulates from all parts of a vehicle's fuel system,” the company said.
This product is formulated with dual acting detergents using Poly Ether Amine (PEA) and Polyisobutylene (PIB) technology, which combine to eliminate harmful deposits in GDI and mulit-port engines. In addition, this blend includes additives which provide enhanced lubricity and corrosion protection throughout the fuel system, as well as anti-oxidants that promote fuel stability, the company noted.
To ensure that the backs of the intake valves are cleaned in GDI engines, Penray has introducted a 2-step Direct Injection Cleaning Kit #2601 for professional use. The kit incorporates the Direct Injection Cleaner #2113, ensuring the entire fuel system is cleaned, as well as Back of Valve Cleaner #2612, the company said. The 2612 is administered through the throttle body to ensure that the product reaches the backs of the intake valves for cleaning.
Multi-port engine designs pose different challenges. Penray's Total Fuel System Cleaner #2216 uses synthetic technology with PEA chemistry. This blend is especially effective at removing carbon deposits from multi-port combustion chambers in gasoline engines, the company explained. These deposits inhibit complete combustion and compromise performance.
"The precision of today's direct injection gasoline and light duty diesel engines provides excellent driveability, economy, and performance," said Mark Kardon, director of marketing. "However, these systems must be maintained in optimal condition in order to perform as designed. Extended service intervals can jeopardize the performance of these critical systems, as can clogged fuel injectors, which are appearing with increasing frequency."
"The simple periodic use of our fuel system cleaners can help keep these engines operating at the peak of performance," Kardon concluded.
