Penray Introduces Pow-R 365 5-In-1 Year-Round Diesel Treatment

PenrayThe Penray Companies Inc. has introduced a new year-round diesel fuel product for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles called Pow-R 365 5-in-1 Diesel Treatment. According to Penray, the product’s versatile blend of additives and conditioners improves fuel economy and engine performance in commercial and construction/agricultural operating environments in both summer and winter seasons.

Pow-R 365 gets its name from the five benefits it provides on a year-round basis, which are:

1. Increases fuel cetane rating by a full point, making for improved combustion.

2. Helps increase fuel economy, a key benefit given the ever-rising cost of diesel fuel.

3. Protects vital fuel system components like fuel injectors from corrosion, which is particularly important since water is often found contaminating Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuel (ULSD) and bio-fuels.

4. Enhances lubricity, offering protection at key points of fuel system friction, like injectors and pumps.

5. Provides protection down to zero degrees F, preventing gelling that’s common in diesel fuels at lower ambient temperatures. In addition, it reduces the Cold Filter Plug Point (CFPP) by as much as 20 degrees F.

By promoting more complete combustion, Penray’s new Pow-R 365 can help reduce regenerations of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), the company states. At the same time, this more complete combustion results in enhanced fuel economy. Sold in bottles of 64 fluid ounces, each bottle treats 250 gallons of diesel fuel, making it particularly economical, the company adds. Like other Penray products, Pow-R 365 Diesel Treatment was developed in Penray’s U.S. labs in Illinois. It also is manufactured and packaged in the U.S.

Sarah Cooper, product manager for Penray, emphasizes the versatility of this new addition to Penray’s offerings for the heavy-duty market. “Penray has long been known for high-quality, high-performance specialized diesel fuel additives. Pow-R 365 is a great addition to our lineup, encompassing the five most important fuel additive functions in a single product,” says Cooper. “Treating with this year-round product ensures your system is ready for all unexpected conditions from inclement weather to poor quality fuel.”

“We believe Pow-R 365 to be such a good product that we are backing it with a money back guarantee,” adds Cooper. “If a customer is unhappy with the product for any reason, we will provide a full refund. But of course we are so confident in this product that we expect full satisfaction by all who use it.”

Penray Pow-R 365 5 in 1 Diesel Fuel Additive is just one of the many chemical products that Penray offers for heavy-duty vehicles, including Class 6, 7 and 8 over-the-highway trucks, mobile off-highway vehicles, agricultural equipment, and marine applications.

Simple Engine Fasteners Actually Complex Engineering Systems

Fasteners act much the same as a spring due to the physics of stretch and rebound.

While the design and use of automotive fasteners may seem simple, proper installation actually involves many different factors. There are many nuances in the selection and application of fasteners that can make the difference between a well-built engine and a candidate for self-destruction.

The first thing to understand is that fasteners act much the same as a spring due to the physics of stretch and rebound. A stud or bolt must be stretched to produce clamping force. For example, a typical 3/8˝ connecting rod bolt will need to be stretched some .006˝ to provide 10,000 lbs. of force.

It can be confusing because for a long time we were told that direct fuel injection was better than port fuel injection.

Air Filter And Fuel Trim Diagnostics

The modern engine measures two things extremely well, the amount of air going into the combustion chamber with the mass airflow sensor (MAF), and the byproducts that are generated by the combustion event with the oxygen sensor. These measurements allow the engine’s computer to put the right amount of fuel and spark into the cylinder to give the most efficient and cleanest combustion event.
