    Chevron Expands Fuel Additives Line

    New products designed to improve engine quality.

    SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Chevron Products Co. is adding PurEscape Performance Optimizer and TECHRON Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner, a reformulated version of Chevron’s TECHRON Concentrate, to its line of fuel additives.

    The company’s consumer testing has shown that the enhanced gasoline combustion offered by PurEscape Performance Optimizer often translates to a smoother running engine that shows a noticeable and immediate improvement in vehicle responsiveness.

    This synthetic formula acts as a catalyst to improve the combustion properties of gasoline. Through reduced ignition and fuel burning times, PurEscape Performance Optimizer is designed to improve the utilization of energy released during combustion, resulting in higher average peak pressures and improved quality of the average combustion cycle.

    "Infusing your vehicle’s gasoline with PurEscape Performance Optimizer can make your drive time more exhilarating," said Alison Townley, business manager of consumer products marketing for Chevron Products Company. "It contains a revolutionary new and patented component that can bring out the hidden potential of a car’s engine by converting gasoline energy faster, which can translate to an improved overall driving experience."

    The product is intended for use with every gasoline fill-up. A globally tested product, it is suitable for all gasoline fuel grades and all 4-stroke gasoline vehicle types. The product does not affect gasoline octane ratings or alter the engine’s octane requirements and can be used with all engine systems components.

    PurEscape Performance Optimizer is available in a 12-ounce size, which treats up to 20 gallons of gasoline. The product will be available for retailers in January 2006.

    TECHRON Concentrate Plus Fuel System Cleaner provides both engine deposit control and protection against harmful sulfurs that can cause fuel gauge sensors to malfunction.

    With its synthetic formula, one bottle of TECHRON Concentrate Plus improves engine performance for up to 3,000 miles by cleaning deposits from fuel injectors, carburetors, intake valves, ports and combustion chambers. It can help restore lost power; lower exhaust emissions; reduce engine knock, ping and run-on; and relieve cold start-up problems.

    "TECHRON Concentrate Plus is an easy and cost-effective way to maintain optimal engine performance and fuel efficiency, especially for used car drivers who need to remove engine deposits neglected by their vehicles’ previous owners," Townley said. "With regular use, it can help lower exhaust emissions and maximize performance over the life of the engine."

    In older vehicles, combustion chamber deposits will sometimes cause engine knock unless the motorist uses a higher octane fuel than specified in the owner’s manual. One bottle of TECHRON Concentrate Plus can help decrease the octane requirement of these vehicles, eliminating knock and allowing the motorist to use less expensive lower octane fuels. The protection offered by the product against fuel system sulfur deposits has also been shown to last for thousands of miles.

    Available in two bottle sizes, the product can be used with most vehicles, including light-duty direct and indirect-injected diesel engines, gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles, direct injection spark ignition (DISI) gasoline engines and all ethanol-oxygenated gasolines. The 20-ounce size treats up to 20 gallons of fuel and is designed for larger cars, light-duty trucks and sport utility vehicles. The 12-ounce size treats up to 12 gallons of fuel and is designed for smaller cars and trucks. The new fuel additive will be available at national retail chains and auto parts stores this month.
