Enjoy Oil Change Intervals With Additional Benefits
Optimal Fuel Combustion Optimizes Oil Cleanliness, Hence, Change Intervals; Optimize Fuel Combustion With Rentar Fuel Catalyst
Eric Shaffer is a marketing consultant with the Caterpillar Fluids and Filters group. Shaffer wrote a 2015 blog titled “You Can Optimize Your Oil Change Intervals – All You Need Is a Plan” in which he outlined five requisites for determining the longest period of time trucks, heavy equipment, and agricultural machinery can go on the same oil change without viscosity and oil breakdown beginning to wear and damage an engine.
Experience and data lead Shaffer to believe the keys to optimizing oil change intervals includes:
- Fleet/equipment profiles.
- Cross-reference diesel engine oil cost analysis.
- Diesel engine risk assessment.
- Diesel engine testing plan.
- Establish diesel engine baseline.
But, there is a sixth requisite: combustion efficiency.
In fact, combustion efficiency — a clean burn — may do more for optimizing oil change intervals than anything else, maybe even everything else combined.
While Shaffer outlines the means to optimize oil change intervals, he does not explain how to optimize oil cleanliness.
Diesel Engine Cleaners
The marketers of every diesel engine cleaner in the market promise the same: If you keep the inner workings of a diesel engine clean, the oil in the engine will remain clean longer and last longer. The same marketers explain that by keeping the oil clean, you will extend the life of an engine exponentially.
It’s a circular argument that fails to address the source of the problem: incomplete fuel combustion.
It’s like saying that if you keep your body healthy, you will have healthier blood. And if you keep your blood healthy, you will have a healthier body. The source of the problem is the food you eat and whatever vices you may have that go into your mouth.
Likewise, the real culprit to engine wear isn’t build up on the inside of an engine, and it isn’t old oil. The real culprit is what causes engine build-up and what’s found in old oil.
The real culprit behind poor oil mileage is incomplete combustion.
So, while Shaffer is exactly on point with respect to what an owner/operator or company can do in order to optimize oil change intervals, if those same people want to extend the life of their oil — by preventing viscosity and elemental breakdown — fleet/equipment profiles; cross-reference diesel engine oil cost analysis; diesel engine risk assessment; a diesel engine testing plan; and establishing a diesel engine baseline will not serve.
The galvanizing, corroding carbon buildup found inside an engine are byproducts of incomplete combustion. These byproducts are what viscous, broken-down oil contains.
If you want to keep oil clean as opposed to simply maxing out the potential of old oil, you must increase diesel fuel engine combustion efficiency.
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst: Dramatic Diesel Fuel Combustion Efficiency Increase
The Rentar Fuel Catalyst can increase diesel fuel combustion efficiency by 5-20 percent, depending on the engine and the purpose of the diesel engine.
But, more importantly, the Rentar Fuel Catalyst can reduce particulate matter — one component of engine sludge and buildup — by up to 20 percent. Black smoke, which also contributes heavily to the congestion of diesel internal combustion engines, is reduced by up to 44 percent with the addition of a Rentar pre-combustion fuel catalyst. Elemental and organic carbons are reduced by 35 percent with the Rentar, and volatile organics can be reduced by up to 58.7 percent.
If you want to extend the life of your oil as opposed to just optimizing change intervals, you must increase diesel fuel combustion efficiency.
If you want to increase diesel fuel combustion efficiency, your machine requires a Rentar.
