What Problems Do Engine Cleaners Solve?

100QRIf you’ve been looking through the auto additives aisle and wondering which products are the best for your car, you may have encountered products that advertise themselves as an engine cleaner. Do you actually need an engine cleaner? What problems do engine cleaners solve? Here’s what you need to know about engine cleaner products. We know, because we’ve been in the engine treatment business for over 90 years. Here’s what we’ve learned.

A Clean Engine Is a Protected Engine

The oil in your engine is designed to make sure it runs smoothly. However, there are dangers present in everyday driving (especially in dirty and harsh conditions) that could damage your engine, like dirt particles and debris that could scratch your engine’s internal component surfaces, or harmful acids that could cause corrosion damage. While your oil should naturally contain a certain level of additives that protect against these problems, a good engine treatment + cleaner that’s specially engineered to special lubrication standards helps prevent and protect against more serious and costly damage.

Why Use an Engine Treatment?

There are a lot of gas and oil additives on the market, and it’s not always easy to know which ones you really need. One of the products that you may see often is an engine treatment. Do you need an engine treatment for your car? Well, ask yourself this: do you need to eat a healthy diet? If you want your body to perform at maximum efficiency, the answer is “yes,” and the same is true for your car. In a very real sense, your car is what you feed it, and enthusiasts have known this for years.

Is it absolutely critical to the operation of your car? No. But will your car look, sound and perform better when you add a quality engine treatment? Well, there’s a reason that Rislone Engine Treatment, the product that made Rislone a household name among those that know cars, used to be called “a tune-up in a bottle.” Today, Rislone is used by enthusiasts, racing clubs, off-road clubs, performance freaks and everyday commuters around the world.

Engine Treatment vs. Friction

Let’s put it this way: friction is your car’s sworn enemy, which is why you put oil in your car in the first place. A quality engine treatment product reduces friction by adding lubrication, while cleaning and protecting your engine with carefully designed additives created specifically for the health of your engine. The cooler an engine runs – in other words, the less friction it encounters – the better performance, acceleration and efficiency it will return. Read More

When Should You Use a Fuel Injector Cleaner?

4732You probably know that your fuel injection system is of the utmost importance when it comes to the proper functioning of your car, especially if you own a high-performance model. What you may or may not know is how important it is to keep your fuel injectors and fuel system clean. Here are some tips on understanding why you need a fuel system treatment and when you should use one.

Why Do You Need a Fuel Injector Cleaner or Fuel System Treatment?

Your fuel injection system is how gasoline is delivered to your engine. It’s critical. Fuel injectors were instituted to replace carburetor systems because fuel injectors are able to precisely deliver the right amount of gasoline to each cylinder when needed, resulting in greater fuel economy, better performance, fewer environmentally unfriendly emissions and less waste.

Unfortunately, many gasoline products, in particular those containing ethanol, can produce byproducts which can lead to buildup that may clog your fuel injectors or other fuel system components. When the fuel injectors are clogged, they cannot work as effectively, and require a fuel injector cleaner to restore your fuel system to maximum efficiency. Read More

Which Fuel Injector Cleaner Works Best?

4701For the best functioning for your car’s engine, you probably already know that you want your fuel injectors to be as clean as possible, along with your fuel system as a whole. Fuel injectors can get clogged up by the byproducts of impure gasoline (especially when dealing with alternating summer and winter gas blends), and the result can be reduced fuel economy, higher emissions and engine problems like knocking, sluggish acceleration, rough idle and poor performance.

The right fuel injector cleaner + fuel system treatment can help resolve this issue, getting your fuel injectors clean and keeping them clean. But which fuel injector treatment is the right one for you?

Answer: the one that is engineered to actually work. This goes beyond just cleaning fuel injectors.

Choosing a Fuel Injector Treatment

There are a lot of fuel injector treatments out there, and some of them probably work quite well. On the other hand, some of them do very little, as the dosage is either too small or potency too weak to affect any significant result. Many of these treatments only help your dirty fuel injectors get clean and stay clean to some degree. This is a start, but what you really need is a complete formulation that will help your engine operate at peak efficiency throughout the entire combustion cycle. Read More

What Is a Fuel Injector Anyway?

4732You probably know that your car cannot run without fuel injectors, perhaps the key component of its fuel delivery system, and you probably know that fuel injection systems were invented as a replacement for carburetors. But can you completely answer the question, “What is a fuel injector?” If you’re a little fuzzy on what a fuel injector actually is and what fuel injection does, here’s a little crash course.

How Fuel Injectors Work

A fuel injector is basically a pressure valve that makes sure the combustion chamber has just the right mix of oxygen and fuel by precisely controlling the amount of fuel that goes into each cylinder, with the help of the car’s onboard computer (this computer is also called an ECU, or Electronic Control Unit). This has proven to be a far more efficient solution than the carburetor, which simply involved unloading a large amount of fuel into the combustion chamber whenever the engine required it.

This was a tremendous waste of fuel and resulted in increased unhealthy emissions, as well as greater costs for the gas-buying consumer. It was a rough analog technology, replaced by a precise digital one. Read More
