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 1 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 manufacturer's instructions.


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 UL101.


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.
