Tips for Automotive Maintenance. Today, the lifespan of cars has been improved unlike before when a car was considered worthless after running for some miles despite the fact that the technology behind manufacture remains the same. Factory recommended maintenance and car maintenance products are the main contributors to the increased lifespan of cars in the recent past. Factory recommended maintenance are the services outlined by the manufacturer that should be done the car after a certain interval of time. The services are always done to maintain the condition of the car. The factory also recommends the use of certain car products such as fuel additives, octane boosters, and car wax. Here are some of the benefits of using fuel additives in your cars. A fuel additive is a liquid product added to the standard fuel to improve its performance. The primary function of the fuel additives is to improve fuel efficiency to reduce problems such as rough idling, poor acceleration, and cold-start problems. Another function of the fuel additives is to reduce the formation of deposits in the valves and the combustion chamber. The additives are always into different categories according to their roles in car maintenance such as octane boosters, anti-gelling additives, fuel line antifreeze, fuel injector cleaners, and gasoline stabilizers. Fuel line antifreeze additives are useful for the prevention of water condensation in the storage tanks. The condensed water freezes along the fuel line during cold temperatures which can lead to engine malfunction. An example of additives in this category is the water-dispersant additive which removes the condensed water by absorbing it and transferring to the exhaust stream where it is vaporized. Alcohol prevents the freezing of the condensed water by mixing with it.

The function of octane boosters is to increase the octane ring in gasoline to facilitate lubrication of valves. An octane booster contains valve seat lubricant which helps in reducing wear of iron valve seats. Diesel exhaust liquid is injected into the exhaust gas stream to aid the breakdown of nitrogen compounds into water and nitrogen. Another group of additives is anti-gelling additives which help in liquefying of solidified gel and paraffin wax. Solidified gel and paraffin wax are responsible for the clogging of the fuel filters during cold temperatures thereby reducing the cars’ cold starting performance.
22 Lessons Learned: Vehicles
Fuel volatility is a major problem associated with automotive. To maintain the volatility of the fuel you should add gasoline stabilizers. The additives also help in reducing the starting difficulty as a result of the more gaseous components in the fuel. Corrosion inhibitors are useful for the prevention of corrosion of the engine system that uses ethanol based fuel. Fuel injector cleaners helps in the removal of carbon deposits from valves and pistons.
