About Fuel Right

Fuel Right sludge-control products (EP, 6000, 7500, Summer Diesel, Winter Diesel) inhibit the formation of sludge in clean systems and slowly break down existing sludge in fouled systems. The things released in this process pass harmlessly through the system and burn as fuel. If there is free condensed water in a system, Fuel Right treats it with a fuel antifreeze, protecting against fuel system freeze-ups in the winter months. Most importantly, Fuel Right coats steel surfaces in your system, protecting them against corrosion from the combined effects of moisture and contamination.

Laboratory tests have shown that Fuel Right is uniquely effective in protecting fuel systems against the ravages of fuel contamination. To learn more about these test results, go to See The Results (http://www.fuelright.com/results.html). If you have any questions you can Contact Us (http://www.fuelright.com/contact.html) by phone or Email.
