Revolutionary Enzyme Fuel Additive
It's all about going green & organic these days. Thus we get ethanol in gasoline & vegetable oil in diesel. But organic substance sustains microbial growth & deteriorates fuel quality, which in turn impairs performance & fuel economy. Star Tron disperses bacteria, fungi, mold, and yeast, collectively known in the gasoline & diesel industries as "fuel gelling" & "diesel algae" respectively, allowing the fuel filtration system to function efficiently. 2 different formulas for gasoline & diesel engines:
Reduces all emissions.
Prevents fuel oxidation and stabilizes fuel chemistry for at least 1 year.
Lowers fuel system maintenance.
Eliminates carbon build-up in fuel delivery system and on exhaust components.
Increases fuel economy, especially in older engines.
Instantly cures fuel jelling & filter problems caused by E10 alcohol fuels & cold weather.
Reduces all emissions, including carcinogenic particulate smoke.
Prevents fuel oxidation and stabilizes diesel chemistry for at least two years.
Lowers fuel system maintenance.
Eliminates carbon build-up on injectors and exhaust components.
Increases fuel economy, especially in older engines.
Instantly cures fuel gelling caused by cold weather and alcohol fuels.
Instantly cures diesel algae & filter problems caused by Bio-Diesel fuels during cold weather.
Star Tron® is an amazing fuel treatment based
on naturally occurring enzymes. Although this
is a very unique application of enzyme
technology, we encounter various enzymes in
our everyday lives. For example, enzymes in
laundry detergents break down dirt and stains
so that they may be easily washed away, even
in cold water. Enzymes in the human digestive
system break down food into components that
are easily used by the body to produce energy.
Functioning as biocatalysts, enzymes increase
and control the rate of chemical reactions. Star
Tron® uses highly specialized enzymes to
modify how gasoline and diesel fuel burns, the
end result being more complete and uniform
combustion. This same enzyme package cleans
the fuel delivery system and combustion
chambers, stabilizes fuel chemistry and
reduces engine emissions.
Increasing Power and Improving Fuel
Economy, Reducing Emissions
Engines are not very efficient at burning all of
the fuel that is fed into the cylinders. The result
of this incomplete combustion is reduced
power, production of harmful emissions and
carbon formation. By changing the bonding
structure of the hydrocarbon molecules that
make up fuel, enzymes in Star Tron® allow
more oxygen to attach to the fuel at the time of
ignition, resulting in a more complete burn of
the fuel charge. Star Tron® treated fuel
therefore produces greater power, noticeably
increases fuel economy and shows up to a 90%
reduction in commonly encountered emissions.
Carbon monoxide is reduced up to 40%. Diesel
soot is now classified as a carcinogen and a
toxic air contaminant. Enzyme modified diesel
fuel can reduce soot by over one half in just a
day and continued use can reduce soot by up to
Cleaning Injectors, The Fuel Delivery
System and Combustion Chambers While
Removing Carbon Build-Up
When more of the fuel charge is burned there
is a dramatic drop in the formation of
performance robbing carbon deposits. After
several hours of operating with Star Tron®
enhanced fuel, the engine’s concussive forces
will blow all existing carbon off the pistons,
completely cleaning the combustion chamber
without the use of solvent-based carbon
As the enzymes in Star Tron® are naturally
powerful surface-active agents, deposits are
removed from the fuel tank, fuel lines,
injectors, valves, pistons and spark plugs. Star
Tron® accomplishes these cleaning tasks
quickly and at the lowest per gallon cost of any
product on the market.
Once existing carbon deposits are removed and
future deposit formation is prevented,
knocking and pinging (pre-detonation) are
eliminated. Engines develop full power while
running smoother and quieter. An added
benefit of a deposit free combustion chamber
is that fuel burns at a properly controlled rate,
helping to greatly boost fuel economy.
Microbial Growth In Fuel
When gasoline or diesel fuel sits in a tank with
excessive air space, the daily temperature
changes produce condensation (water
formation) on tank walls. This water falls into
the fuel where it sinks to the bottom providing
a breeding ground for microbial spores that
feed on hydrocarbon fuels.
Known as "diesel algae" these are primarily
fungi, yeast and mold contaminants. If left
untreated, diesel algae will ruin the fuel
causing clogs in filters, fuel lines and injectors.
Common treatment for this problem up until
now has been the use of a biocide to kill
existing growth and prevent a future
infestation. The use of a biocide can however
cause other problems. Once the growth is
killed, the resulting biomass settles to the tank
bottom where it decays forming organic acids.
The acids then deteriorate the fuel and cause
corrosion of the tank walls, injectors and fuel
delivery system. Additionally, biocides can be
harmful to all those who handle them or come
in contact with treated fuel, plus they can
cause environmental damage if spilled. Star
Tron® uses its enzyme technology to disperse
microbial growth throughout the fuel. These
microbial particles are then either safely
burned away or filtered out.
Treating Water In Fuel
As mentioned before, water can wind up in
your gas or diesel fuel as a result of
condensation in the tank. Because water is
heavier than fuel, it sinks to the bottom of the
tank and forms a distinct water layer. The fuel
pick-up tube is located at the bottom of the
tank so, once this happens, water is supplied to
your fuel pump. Obviously the engine can not
burn water; soon it starts to sputter and
eventually stops running. Additionally, water is
corrosive so it deteriorates tank walls and
metals in the fuel delivery system. The
enzymes in Star Tron® prevent the water
molecules that are in fuel from combining and
forming a distinct water layer. Water is
reduced to sub-micron size particles that
cannot cause corrosion and are
safely burned during normal combustion.
The emissions-reducing additive MTBE that
has been put into gasoline for years was found
to contaminate water supplies. As a result,
MTBE is being eliminated throughout the U.S.
and replaced by up to 10% ethanol. When used
up quickly, ethanol-enhanced gas does not
present difficulties for users. In boats and RVs
that tend to use up fuel less frequently
however, the new ethanol gas does in fact
create problems. Ethanol has a great affinity
for water and as a result, this new formulated
fuel can cause a water layer to form and
gelling to occur. Additionally, ethanol is an
excellent solvent that can attack sludge buildup
in fuel tanks and cause fuel filters to clog
frequently. Star brite Star Tron® can prevent
these problems from occurring and can also
reverse the problems if they already exist.
Stabilizing Fuel Chemistry
Diesel fuel and gasoline are not formulated to
be stored for more than 90 days. After this
period of time, they begin to oxidize, forming
sludge, varnish, gum and other harmful
deposits. The ability of the fuel to burn
properly is diminished as chemical
components start to break down. Star Tron®
uses its enzyme technology to maintain fuel
quality and prevent the deterioration of fuel
components. Diesel fuel treated with Star
Tron® has a shelf life in excess of two years.
Gasoline, which tends to evaporate volatile
components more quickly than diesel, remains
stable for one year.
Once hydrocarbon fuels deteriorate, the
process of cleaning and rejuvenating them is
extremely expensive. Enzymes contained in
Star Tron® can in fact "repair" old fuel,
restoring cetane and octane ratings, dispersing
water and breaking down sludge and other
deposits. Star Tron®’s enzyme formula may
well be the most cost effective fuel
remediation technology in the world.
""Here are the before and after photos of the unleaded gasoline. The sludge and dark coloring
in the before sample, was caused by the adding of ethanol fuel after years of nothing but the fuel in this
tank. The ethanol picked up the water and loosened the varnish from the side of the tank. Obviously, this
fuel should not be used at all. These two 55-gallon drums were then treated with 3.5 oz of Star*Tron® and in 30 minutes the fuel looked like new."
