The quality of our fuel is something that most people take for granted. In the past, fuel would last as much as a year without any ill effects. This meant that the consumer could count on the fuel maintaining its quality at least until it was purchased at the pumps.
Today, however, this is not the case. One oil company survey reports that more than half of all gasoline sold today is substandard. Check out also this useful video about fuel stabilizers
Not only does fuel quality affect our cars, it affects any other engine we use. If you have a backup generator to ensure you will always have electricity, you need to be able to count on it starting consistently.
Approximately 70 percent of all backup generator failures are fuel related. This is due to heat, moisture and time, factors that all contribute to the oxidative process. Oxidation causes fuel to develop gum, resin, and varnish. Fresh fuel can go bad in just a matter of weeks. There are, of course, many aspects to being safe in an emergency, like making sure your lighting is in working order, but to ensure you’ve got proper fuel is one of the most essential aspects!
There is a good solution to these problems. The solution is to treat your fuel with a high-quality fuel preservative. PRI Fuel Stabilizer industrial-grade products are engineered for ensuring the stability of diesel, gasoline, and kerosene. This was actually one of the key issues addressed at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Emergency Transition Initiative (MA-RETI).
The original fuel formulas were developed to be used by refineries over 50 years ago for fuel storage in bulk and these days, continuing research has come up with great formulas that can greatly extend contemporary fuels’ life for many years. PRI-D preservative for diesel fuel and PRI-G gasoline preservative have demonstrated as well their ability to restore stale fuels to a top-notch refinery-fresh condition.
The key to PRI Fuel Stabilizer chemistry is a proprietary, enhanced thermal stability chemistry. This unique chemistry is simply not available in the consumer type additives you’ll see at auto parts stores and marine and RV supply outfits. All these initiatives are important when you want to set up your own individual emergency preparedness plan to be sure that when thing turn bad, you and your family will be safe.
Many of these products have been independently tested and not surprisingly, the majority of these stabilizers do little or nothing to preserve fuels. Some even make the fuel worse. PRI is the most effective chemistry available in the world today. Read also this article about how to learn everything within twenty hours.
