UL101 Demonstrates Reduction in Automotive Fuel Consumption
The following is referenced from a letter written by Ventspils Technical College in Latvia:
Ventspils Technical College, in cooperation with SIA Promex, on 14th December 2015
carried out an experiment on the motor of a Ford Transit 2.0 TD (74 kw) with about 800,000
km already driven. The aim of the experiment was to check whether the product SX-6000
reduces fuel consumption, and also the noise level of the engine. It also served as a practical
lesson for students as to how SX-6000 products should be applied in daily work.
At the start, a measuring vessel with a capacity of 1 litre was added to the petrol system,
to check exactly how much diesel the engine consumed before treatment when running idle. At the same time, the friction noise from the engine was measured at various points, using the
ultrasonic device CTRL UL101 Ultrasound Detector.
After I hour's running and measuring the fuel consumption, SX-6000 oil system cleaner
was added to the engine, and it was run for 20 minutes, after which the old oil was drained out.
The oil filter was replaced and the engine was then refilled to 80% of its capacity with new
engine oil. The engine was cooled to below 40°C, and then, after the surface coating SX-6000
was added to bring the oil content to 100%, the processing was carried out according to the
After the processing was completed, the measuring vessel was again filled with I litre of
the same petrol like before used, and the engine was run idling for exactly t hour. Then the
noise levels were measured again with the CTRL ULl0l.
After the experiment, we concluded that the use of the product SX-6000 had reduced
the fuel consumption by about 8% (the manufacturer guarantees 5%). The measurements with
the UL101 ultrasonic device showed a significant reduction in the engine noise. These changes could also be heard in the car cabin, running much more smoothly and quieter than before SX-6000 was applied.
