The news about diesel prices continues to be distressing.
Diesel fuel prices across the U.S. jumped another 11.4 cents during the week ending May 9, bringing the national average to another record high at $5.62 per gallon, according to the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration. That means diesel prices are now $2.44 per gallon higher than the same week a year ago.
It also means truckers can use all the help they can get when it comes to saving on fuel.
Howes Diesel Defender, which uses a proprietary detergent to clean the fuel system and injectors, also takes lubricity to the next level adding up to 2.5 times more than previous injector cleaners, and that means better mileage from your truck's engine. In fact, Howes guarantees Diesel Defender will improve your fuel economy by 5 percent, and that's good news these days.
Diesel Defender is 100% petroleum-based and alcohol-free. That’s important because alcohol can dry out seals and gaskets. It also emulsifies water, which is important for the well-being of your truck’s engine.
Given today’s ultra-low sulfur diesel fuels, you may wish to consider using an additive like Diesel Defender to get the most lubricity out of every gallon of diesel all the time, reduce potential downtime, and maximize your mileage. This can help protect the investment you or your company has in the truck, and can keep you from a trip-interrupting breakdown.
Howes Diesel Defender — which contains no alcohol or solvents — improves power, performance, and mileage in several ways. It does all that while making your truck run cleaner. It contains IDX4 detergent that:
- Cleans injectors
- Reduces emissions
- Eliminates harmful deposits
- Prevents coking
- Delivers more complete fuel combustion
- Removes water from your truck's fuel system
Howes Diesel Defender is warranty safe and good for diesel and biodiesel, and is available at travel centers and other locations.
