PerformX-D-Fuel Additives- Amazing indeed
Results from new testing and 100,000 miles.
Testing Data collected and released 3/12/12 by Aeromotive Research, Rockford, IL
The use of Midco’s PerformX-D fuel additives used at a treat rate of 1/1000 reduces carbon dioxide emissions from diesel vehicle exhausts by more than 7.5 percent over petroleum diesel alone. Using PerformX-D fuel additives at a 1/2500 treat rate reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 2.5 percent. PerformX-D fuel additives also reduces particulate matter by 42 percent, carbon monoxide by 12% and sulfates by up to 22 percent. PerformX-D fuel additives reduces tailpipe emissions of unburned hydrocarbons by 7 percent and reduces the levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and nitrated PAHs by 13 and 50 percent, respectively.
Studies of the biodiesel fuels using PerformX-D fuel additives have shown a decrease in the mutagenicity of diesel engine exhaust. Exhaust emissions from stationary constant speed diesel engines contained less black carbon and total polynuclear aromatic compounds and were significantly less mutagenic in S. typhimurium strains TA98 and TA100 than exhaust emissions from the engines not containing PerformX-D fuel additives.
Although overall fuel economy in over the road engines increased, PerformX-D fuel additives seems to be a break even, cost per treat rate, 1/1000, at 2.88 a gallon. With most biodiesel costing upward of 4.00 a gallon one can expect an 8 % savings along with reduced emissions and maintenance cost. Simply said, at current PerformX treat rates and cost, he fuel at 2.88 a gallon is break even. If fuel cost go above 2.88, then you start putting money back in your pocket.
