Your vehicle’s diesel engine needs fuel to generate power, so fuel is one of the most important parts of a vehicle. The quality of that fuel also matters; if your fuel is contaminated or you’ve got a problem with your fuel system, fuel treatments can help improve fuel quality and deliver better overall diesel engine performance. Whether your vehicle is having problems starting, you’re using too much fuel, or your engine is performing roughly in general, Thompson Diesel Inc. has fuel treatments that can help get your engine back in shape.
Choosing the right type of fuel treatment is important because different diesel fuel additives are made for different uses. Some fuel additives are great if you’ve got water in your fuel, while others can help fight carbon buildup and clogged fuel injectors. The good news is, Thompson Diesel Inc. can help you choose the right type of fuel treatment for your vehicle no matter what’s going on performance-wise. From basic fuel additives that help improve general performance to fuel additives designed to treat a specific problem, we’ve got it all.
To make sure you’ve got access to high-quality fuel treatments, Thompson Diesel Inc. carries a selection of diesel fuel additives from Stanadyne. Stanadyne Performance Formula is one of the most popular choices for diesel engines, but we’ve got plenty of other choices as well. If you’re having diesel engine performance problems that you think may be related to your fuel injectors, talk to Thompson Diesel Inc. about using Stanadyne fuel treatments for your engine.
Thompson Diesel Inc. offers diesel fuel additives from Stanadyne and other manufacturers. These will solve all of the common major fuel-related problems such as operation in cold weather, low sulfur lubricity, hard starting/low power, contamination by water (which leads to harder starting, less power, damage to the pistons, clogging and corrosion of essential fuel system components, etc.) and will generally help you get much more out of fuel.
Symptoms of Fuel Injection Problems
You might be wondering how you can tell if your diesel engine needs fuel treatments. Fuel treatments are a great way to get rid of fuel injection problems, so the key is to keep an eye out for any signs of fuel injection problems. Some of the most common signs of fuel injection problems include:
- Fuel smell inside or around your vehicle
- Decreased fuel economy (less MPG)
- Difficulty starting your vehicle
- Rough idling with inconsistent rev speeds
- Oil thinning
- Hydro lock
- General poor engine performance
Even if you’ve only got one or two of these problems, you could have a problem with your fuel injectors. Clogged fuel injectors or poor fuel injection will usually cause a noticeable drop in performance, and that drop may seem rather sudden. If you notice sudden performance problems with your diesel engine, come to Thompson Diesel Inc. and we’ll take a look at your fuel and fuel injectors to make sure everything is in working order.
The good news about fuel injection problems is that they’re generally pretty easy to fix. If you’ve got bad fuel injectors, Thompson Diesel Inc. can get you set up with brand-new stock or aftermarket fuel injectors. We can also service your existing fuel injectors to make sure they stand the test of time. No matter what kind of fuel problems are dragging down your engine performance, Thompson Diesel Inc. can help you get them sorted out.
