AMSOIL Diesel Recovery (DRC) is an emergency diesel fuel treatment that dissolves the wax crystals that form when diesel fuel has surpassed its cloud point. Diesel Recovery liquefies gelled diesel fuel and thaws frozen fuel filters, avoiding costly towing charges and getting diesels back on the road. For preventative maintenance, use Diesel Cold Flow (ADD) or Diesel All-In-One (ADB).
Fast Fuel Recovery Diesel applications operating in extremely cold environments face some unique challenges. As the temperature drops, wax naturally found in diesel fuel begins to form crystals. The point at which wax crystals form is known as the cloud point. These wax crystals can eventually clog the fuel filter and starve the engine of fuel, preventing it from starting or even stalling out a running engine.
Diesel Recovery quickly dissolves gelled fuel to allow the operator to continue driving with minimal downtime. Diesel Recovery separates the molecular bonds of wax crystals that have agglomerated in diesel fuel. It thaws frozen fuel filters and reduces the need for a new filter, saving money and preventing an inconvenient trip to an auto parts store.
Works Well in Many Diesel Blends The marketplace offers many different diesel fuels, all with varying quality. Diesel Recovery performs well in most diesel fuels, including ULSD, off-road and biodiesel.
Non-Corrosive, Alcohol-Free Formulation Over extended use, alcohol has a tendency to degrade components of some fuel delivery systems. Diesel Recovery contains no alcohol, making it safe for repeated treatments. In addition, Diesel Recovery is non-corrosive and contains no chemicals that interact with fuel system components. Corrosion can damage fuel system components and lead to prematurely-clogged fuel filters.
Safety in a Bottle Diesel fuel quality varies from one filling station to the next, and low-quality fuel can have a cloud point as high as 40°F. Keeping a bottle of Diesel Recovery on-board is cheap insurance against being towed to a service station or getting stranded somewhere in subzero temperatures.
Recommendations One 30 oz. bottle of Diesel Recovery treats up to 30 gallons of fuel. When encountering a gelled fuel system, follow thesesteps for maximum effectiveness:
- Remove existing fuel filter. - Fill fuel filter with Diesel Recovery. - ReInstall fuel filter. - Add remaining Diesel Recovery to fuel tank. If necassary, add more as required by treat rare recommendations. - Start engine and allow fuel system to circulate until full power has been restored. Note: for even quicker restoration of power, install new fuel filter instead of using existing filter.
What is the treat rate for the AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment?
The treat rate is 30 ounces (one bottle) of additive per 30 gallons of fuel. Slight over treatment will not damage fuel systems or engine components, but performance will not be accelerated.
Is Diesel Recovery alcohol-free?
Yes. Over extended use, alcohols have a tendency to degrade components of some fuel delivery systems. Extended use of AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment will not damage fuel delivery components.
What are the steps for adding Diesel Recovery to a gelled fuel system?
- Remove the existing fuel filter or obtain a new fuel filter. - Fill the removed fuel filter or new filter with AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment. - Reinstall the fuel filter. - If the fuel in the tank is gelled, add the remaining AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment to the fuel tank. Additional AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment may be required if equipped with larger fuel tanks. - Start the engine and allow the fuel system to circulate until full power has been restored to the engine
What is the best use for Diesel Recovery?
AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment is designed to treat fuels that are already gelled. The cold flow products prevent problems from occurring, while AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment allows operators to liquefy gelled diesel fuel once this has occurred. Diesel Recovery is the only AMSOIL fuel treatment product that breaks down the wax crystal structure and gets diesel fuel flowing again.
What type of performance can I expect from AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment?
AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment reduces pour point and dissolves wax crystals upon contact. Performance depends on fuel type and quality. In field tests, the product proved to clear fuel filters clogged with gelled diesel fuel and clear partially clogged fuel lines that cause low power or intermittent engine operation.
Will using AMSOIL Diesel Recovery Emergency Treatment void my engine warranty?
No. Any issue related to engine warranties has to be proven to come from the use of the product in question. The AMSOIL warranty covers any issues caused by use of AMSOIL products.
