Saving those a cents per gallon on gas can speed up the effects of deposits clogging your fuel injectors
Oil refiners have cut back on the amount of detergents and the quality and effectiveness of the detergents in an effort to increase profit margins and be more competitive in the market. Deposit-control additives that are commonly used in fuel include polyisbutylene succinimide, polysibutylamine and polyisobutylene phenylamine. These additives can build up deposits on intake valve stems causing them to stick. To prevent this from happening, additional additives called “fluidizers” must also be added to the fuel. These fluidizers can contribute to the formation of combustion chamber deposits that raise compression and the engine’s octane requirements. Polyetheramine is one of the best additives to keep injectors, valves and combustion chambers clean without the help of any additional fluidizers – but it costs more than twice as much as the other commonly used additives.
Industry sources say the recommended level is about 1,000 parts per million (ppm) of dispersant-detergent in the fuel – which costs the gasoline supplier less than $.01 a gallon. With that being said, as much as 85% of gasoline being sold contains only one-tenth of the recommended amount, or only 100 ppm of additive. Consequently, using cheap gas contributes to the formation of injector deposits.
