There are many different types of fuel additives that perform various tasks on your vehicle. One of the most popular types are those that increase power by rapidly and thoroughly removing engine deposits in the combustion chamber, intake manifolds, ports and valves. These additives restore flow in fuel injectors and clean the entire fuel system. Removing these deposits and increasing the flow of fuel to the engine decreases emissions, saving money and the environment at the same time.
Other products are meant to be added to the crankcase or oil, and use nanotechnology to help reduce friction. You see, every metal surface, no matter how smooth it appears, has microscopic peaks and valleys known as asperities. When two of these metal surfaces come in contact and these asperities grind against each other, wear and heat are produced. This can lead to a decrease in efficiency, and even mechanical failure. These nano-additives contain microscopic metallic particles that fill in those asperities, decreasing friction and allowing your engine to run smoother, cooler, and more efficient. Less friction. Better gas mileage. There are also products that clean up your catalytic converter.
Archoil Fuel Additive AR6200
Archoil Fuel Additive AR6200 lowers the combustion temperature of fuel. This creates a complete burn which means less emissions and better gas mileage. Just add it at fill ups.
BG 44K Power Enhancer
BG 44K Power Enhancer safely, rapidly and thoroughly removes engine deposits in combustion chambers, intake manifolds, ports and on valves. It restores flow in fuel injectors and cleans the entire fuel system. BG 44K Power Enhancer improves fuel economy and reduces exhaust emissions. Add one can or bottle to fuel tank at fill up.
Cataclean is an engine and fuel system detoxification technology, developed to exceed the most recent environmental standards that rapidly and thoroughly dissolves deposits in the fuel system, oxygen sensor, lambda probe and catalytic converter. Cataclean not only prevents fouling of the catalytic converter, it removes existing deposits and increases fuel efficiency.
Enviro-Safe Motor Oil Additive
Enviro-Safe Motor Oil Additive provides a protective coating to your engines internal parts and with continued use, friction wear will be reduced, providing longer life, smoother operation, lower engine temperature, better engine performance, reduced oil consumption and engine down time.

Lucas Fuel Treatment
A powerful blend of oils and additives that contain no solvents, Lucas Fuel Treatment is designed to increase power and fuel mileage and also lower exhaust emissions through a more complete combustion. Recommended dosage is 2-3 ounces of Fuel Treatment per 10 gallons of fuel.
STP Complete Fuel System Cleaner
This STP formulation contains the highest level of detergents of any STP formula. It helps clean your entire fuel system to restore its optimum operating condition. The advanced formula helps clean fuel injectors, carburetors, intake valves and ports, combustion chambers, cylinder heads and piston tops. It contains jet fuel, a high-quality carrier of active ingredients.
STP Diesel Fuel Injector
Formulated to help prevent deposit build-up in diesel engines. Without cleaning, these deposits can harm performance, cause corrosion and waste fuel.
STP Winter Maintenance Formula
This maintenance formula works to prevent fuel line freeze in winter. It also helps fight tough winter cold starts and restore performance by removing water. And a clean fuel intake system helps save gas.
