Gold Eagle Company, the makers of STA-BIL gas stabilizer, recently introduced Diesel Formula STA-BIL. Designed for use at every fill up, it keeps diesel fuel fresh for quick, easy starts.
“The STA-BIL brand is well known and has been trusted for over 40 years,” said Gold Eagle Co.’s EVP/Chief Innovation Officer Manny Grijalva. “The reformulation of diesel fuels over the last few years has increased the need for use of diesel additives, to protect against fuel degradation, water attraction, and to help clean up the fuel system on a regular basis. Our STA-BIL gas stabilizer is the leading fuel stabilizer on the market, so it was only logical that we create a formulation offering the same protective benefits to those with diesel-powered vehicles and equipment.”
Today’s reformulated Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) and bio-fuels can degrade at a more rapid rate than diesel fuels used in the past. This can cause darkening of the fuel, as well as sludge and sediment formation within the fuel tank — leading to the plugging of fuel filters, starting problems, poor engine performance and reduced engine life.
Diesel Formula STA-BIL prevents sludge and sentiments from forming in diesel fuel, protects against corrosion, reduces oxidation of diesel fuel caused by thermal breakdown, and helps remove water that bacteria, fungus and algae require to grow. It also contains extra lubricity and detergents to protect and clean the entire fuel system.
Diesel Formula STA-BIL is safe to use in all diesel fuels, including ULSD and bio-diesels, and can be used in any diesel engine, including marine and agricultural equipment. Diesel Formula STA-BIL is available in both 32-ounce and 1-gallon sizes for treating 320 gallons and 1,280 gallons, respectively.
