New CRC PHASEGUARD4™ Ethanol Fuel Treatment

Prevents Damage to Engine, Fuel Tank and Other Fuel System Components

WARMINSTER, PA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - CRC Industries has introduced a revolutionary new fuel additive that stops the damage caused by ethanol before it starts. CRC PHASEGUARD4™ Ethanol Fuel Treatment provides the maximum protection available for E10 to E85 fuel and helps prevent phase separation* -- the #1 cause of ethanol fuel related problems.

Ethanol wreaks havoc in the gas tanks and fuel systems of boats, autos, RVs, snowmobiles, ATVs, motorcycles, lawn mowers, snow throwers, tractors and more by corroding metal fuel tanks as well as damaging the seals of fiberglass tanks and attacking fiberglass tank composites. The cleaning properties of Ethanol can also loosen varnish and corrosion deposits which then clog fuel filters, injectors and intake valves, leading to major (and costly) damage to engines.

Ethanol is naturally attracted to water and prone to separating from the gasoline and blending with any water molecules in the fuel system. This harmful "phase separation" of the fuel can lead to severe corrosion, decreased fuel economy and engine performance, rough starts and hesitation.

CRC PHASEGUARD4™ fights phase separation with the 4-in-1 formula that protects against corrosion, cleans the entire fuel system, stabilizes fuel for daily use as well as long-term storage and restores power and mileage potential. When compared to leading ethanol fuel treatments, PHASEGUARD4™ provides better water removal capability and better corrosion protection.

CRC PHASEGUARD4™ was developed to work with all gas powered 2- and 4-stroke engines and is effective in E10 to E85 fuels. One oz. of PHASEGUARD4™ treats 10 gallons of fuel. For long term and seasonal storage, CRC recommends one oz. for every five gallons of fuel. PHASEGUARD4™ stabilizes stored fuel for a minimum of 12 months. Fuel cannot be over-treated and PHASEGUARD4™ can be used in all gasoline and gasoline/oil mixtures. It is not appropriate for use with diesel fuel.

For a limited time, CRC PHASEGUARD4™ Ethanol Fuel Treatment is being sold with an introductory $3.00 mail in rebate offer. Look for PHASEGUARD4™, available in 8 oz, 16 oz and 32 oz sizes, in the easy to pour measuring bottles with the bright blue labels at specialty and mass retailers, marinas, hardware stores, or anywhere CRC products are sold nationwide.

*Once phase separation has occurred, fuel cannot be recombined. May not prevent phase separation under extreme environmental conditions.
