Fuel system promises better engine performance at lower cost

ADVERTISEMENT

Herdman Technology, of Ontario, Canada, has launched a proprietary fuel additive that, according to the company, will increase mileage by 15 percent while cutting emissions by as much as 36 percent, as well as a lube additive with similar advantages when added to oil.

Norde FSR (Fuel System Revitalizer) is designed to clean fuel injector ports to return them to the OEM spray pattern, coat the cylinder to protect the surface and increase horsepower, and help the engineer operate more consistently. It is available for gasoline and diesel engines as both an additive and a pre-blended fuel.

Also available in ready-to-use formulations or as an additive to oil is Norde LSM (Lubrication Surface Modifier), a mixture of synthetic compounds that bond to metallic surfaces in a thermo-chemical reaction. It helps prevent catastrophic failure of gasoline and diesel engines while reducing noise and helping them run cooler, as well as reducing maintenance frequency and repair costs, according to the company.

Norde FSR and Norde LSM are distributed exclusively by Site Development Group, of Newport Beach, California. For more information, visit sitedevgroup.com/norde-tech/.
