Dear AddFuel,

With reference to our telephone discussion today, I would just like to confirm we have been regularly using FCC Fuel conditioner in the trawlers of our fishing fleet in South Australia since 2005. From the beginning we noticed an almost immediate improvement in the smoothness of the engine at idle and while underway. The fuel filters were lasting longer and there was no longer any water build-up in the fuel tanks.

With the engines able to run more efficiently there has been reduced black smoke and soot in the engine oil. Because of these benefits we have been able to extend the intervals between servicing, greatly reducing downtime. We were told that FCC also removes carbon build-up from the cylinder head, we can confirm this on the few occasions where we have lifted off the cylinder heads to find them unbelievably free of carbon.

For the same reason we have found that the injector pump and nozzles are also clean and without any gum or resin accumulating. We do not want to put our fleet or crew at risk out at sea because of a fuel problem so we make sure that all our boats are regularly dosed with FCC Fuel conditioner at each refuelling on average 40k every 2 weeks. FCC being biodegradable, and non-flammable gives it added environmental and safety advantages.

Last year we removed one of our vessels main engines being a CAT 3512, @ 740 kw with some 120,000 hours running on the clock, the engine was sent to Caterpillars for complete rebuild. This was done at the Caterpillars Adelaide C.R.C, {component rebuild centre} the engine was completely dismantled, rebuilt and refitted back into the vessel.

Normal rebuild running hours for an engine of this kw rating would be at around the 50,000 hours yet we had done some 120,000 hours without any major overhauls. The only addition from our end being FCC fuel treatment being used. The engine had a prolonged life whilst we were able to service less.

Please note the original crank shaft was still within Caterpillar’s safe reuse specifications and was refitted back into the original engine block, the engine is now back in operation.

The nature of our operations makes it very difficult to establish any fuel savings, but we can only assume that with our engines running this efficiently, that fuel savings are very real.

We have no hesitation in strongly recommending this product to any commercial operator whether they work offshore, on the land or below ground. Thank you

COLAS

Dear Colas Team,

I understand ChoiceChem together with AddFuel have established a supply chain into North America. I write this letter by means of introduction for you to AddFuel and their product FCC Fuel Conditioner.

Over the last few years we have been using FCC Fuel Conditioner in the majority of our machinery/vehicles mainly due to the maintenance issues we were experiencing, particular with regard to the fuel injectors. At one stage we were requiring servicing or to change the injectors and fuel lines on a regular basis due to ongoing issues.

Since the introduction of FCC into our fuel supply we have not had one injector change in the last 12 months and all vehicles are running smoothly. Please see attached appendix which list the various machinery and vehicles FCC has been used in.

The ease of implementation has also been a huge factor for us. FCC is simply added to the bulk tank when it is refuelled ensuring all our vehicles and machinery then gain the benefits.

With regard to the fuel saving, I have just started to monitor the fuel savings and with early results look positive.

I wish the AddFuel team every success in North America with their great product. I am contactable on the below email address should you have any follow up questions.

Kind regards

John McLuckie

To Whom It May Concern

 

In Guam in January 2010 I was introduced to FCC Fuel Conditioner Concentrate by David

Loughnan, CEO of Your Earth Pacific Pty Ltd when he was releasing FCC in the Northern

Pacific region.

At Hawthorne Pacific Corporation in my position as Service Manager I am responsible for

the ongoing maintenance of our entire rental fleet of equipment which includes the following

CAT models: -

  • 416, 420 & 430 – Backhoes
  • 305, 320, 321, 325, 330 & 345 – Excavators
  • 938 & 950 – Loaders
  • D5, D6 & D8 - Bull Dozers
  • 160 KW, 180 KW, 400 KW, 2 x 1 Meg & 1 x 2 Meg - Stand by Generators.

My interest in the FCC product was due to the fact that we had always suffered from fuel related problems caused by moisture in the fuel with some cases of the dreaded “diesel bug”, abnormally high service and replacement requirements for fuel pumps, injectors and fuel solenoid valves. After discussions with David I decided to use FCC as part of our standard 'end of rental' regular servicing programme.

The results have been exceptional and far exceeded those we expected. Using FCC in the after rental service programme has eliminated all fuel related maintenance and replacement of fuel pumps, injectors and solenoid valves. In the smaller equipment which is not electronically controlled FCC has eliminated black exhaust smoke together with a very noticeable increase in the reliability of our entire rental fleet. At CAT we are extremely proud of the performance of our equipment; FCC has taken those performance levels to a new height through improved fuel management.

In December 2010 Hawthorne Pacific Corp approached Your Earth Pacific seeking to become their distributor in this region which resulted in our appointment. We are now supplying FCC to a number of key operators such as Black Constructions who are using FCC throughout their vast and varied fleet by dosing FCC into both their diesel and gasoline master storage tanks and Kosrae Utilities Authority who have been using FCC in their all CAT generator power plants since June 2010.

I am proud to recommend FCC to any operation that is seeking improved performance, large reductions in short and long term fuel related maintenance through improved fuel storage and management initiatives. Although we at Hawthorne Pacific Corp cannot accurately record fuel savings in our rental fleet we do endorse the fuel savings recorded by our clients which is in the range of 6% – 8% fuel savings from using FCC. A combination of fuel savings, decreased maintenance expenditure and increased reliability makes FCC easily self-funding and in our experience, likely to produce substantial savings for consistent users.

I will happily answer any questions you may have regarding our experience with FCC or the distributor of this great Australian made product - Your Earth Pacific Pty Ltd

Regards,

Darrell Slyter

Service Manager

Hawthorne Pacific Corporation – Guam.
