What to look for when assessing a product such as Dipetane?
Does the product have (1) Chassis Dynonometer tests (2) Carbon Balance tests (3) Brake Horse Power tests, from an independent laboratory. Dipetane has all three of these tests showing significant improvements under lab conditions by independent internationally accredited testing houses.
What is the basis for Dipetane working?
Dipetane works because it uniquely eliminates CCDs (Combustion Chamber Deposits) in all engines and boilers. Dipetane’s unique ability to burn the carbon more completely means that the CCDs are not fed any more unburnt carbon and consequently are eliminated.
What are the net savings using Dipetane?
Dipetane creates Net Cash Savings of approximately 8%-12 %
Where can you buy Dipetane and/or Dipetane treated fuels?

Is there a danger from over dosing?
No, since Dipetane is a 100% hydrocarbon it cannot alter the specifications of the fuel it treats.
How Long does it take for Dipetane to work?
Dipetane works from the moment it is put into the fuel and takes 1-3 days to eliminate un-burnt carbon deposits from an engine that starts out badly clogged up to the point of seeing the benefits. If you are doing a smoke/emission test within a few hours then you should give the vehicle 30 minutes of hard driving on a highway or motorway.
Will Dipetane settle out of the fuel?
No.
Can you detect Dipetane in the fuel?
No since it is a 100% pure hydrocarbon that does not alter the specifications of the fuel treated.
When should you add Dipetane to the fuel?
We recommend putting the fuel in the tank first and then pouring in the Dipetane. This way you can be sure of what quantity of Dipetane to blend with the fuel. However it does not matter if you put in the Dipetane first.
Will using Dipetane affect engine/boiler warranties?
No, because as Dipetane is a 100% hydrocarbon product it does not alter the original fuel specifications. Dipetane adheres to the main two relevant fuel quality standards (EN590 Low Sulphur Fuels and BS 2869). Therefore all engine and boiler warranties are maintained intact.
Has Dipetane adequate insurances?
Yes. Lloyds Insurances have continuously insured Dipetane since 1992 with a 100% no claims record. Ask us for details
Is Dipetane safe to handle and to store?
Yes, Dipetane is non-toxic and non hazardous. Its ignition flash point is 193 C (closed cup test)
Why distinguish between new engine test and existing engine test figs for MPG and emissions?
It is obvious that new engine figures for MPG and emissions are much better than similar figures on existing engines due to the inevitable build up of CCD’s. As 99% of all engines are existing engines, i.e. with 6 months usage, it is vital for industrial competitiveness and environmental reasons that existing engine figures are acted upon.
If Dipetane is so good why haven't the major oil companies adopted it?
Because Dipetane saves fuel and major oil companies are in the business of maximising the volume of fuel sold. Some more progressive oil distribution companies are now selling their fuels with Dipetane already in it.
Why do major oil companies still have to use detergents (second best technology) in their fuel?
Because they don’t have Dipetane fuel technology.
Does Dipetane affect rubber parts in the fuel system?
Dipetane does in no way affect O-rings in the injectors or other rubber parts in the fuel system.
What is a Fuel Injector?
A fuel injector is a device for actively injecting fuel into an internal-combustion engines by directly forcing the liquid fuel into the combustion chamber at an appropriate point in the piston cycle; – an alternative to a carburetor, in which an air-fuel mixture is drawn in by the downward stroke of the piston.
How can I check that the fuel injectors are working properly?
This video shows how to check your fuel injectors.
What is the easiest and best way to keep my injectors clean and well lubricated?
The easiest way is to use Dipetane which is designed to keep the injectors ultra clean and to provide the added crucial benefit of extra lubrication. The additional lubrication which can only be provided by Dipetane will counter the decreased lubrication due to the 80% cut in sulphur in diesel fuel. Sulphur in diesel had been providing vital lubrication to protect the injectors from wear and tear, Dipetane now compensates for this loss.
What is a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?
A Diesel particulate filter (or DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Here is a more detailed description of Diesel Particulate Filters and how they operate. DPFs reduce diesel soot emissions by 80% but they’re not suitable for everyone. If you’re buying a new car and plan to use it mainly for town-based, stop/start driving it would be wise to avoid a diesel car fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) because of the possible hassle of incomplete ‘DPF regeneration’. A DPF is normally only used on trucks and other large vehicles. See this video to find out how a diesel particulate filter works.
What is an EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve?
An EGR valve helps your car more efficiently and completely burn fuel by recirculating a portion of your exhaust and running it through the combustion process again. This results in a cooler, more complete burn of the fuel which decreases you car’s noxious emissions by prohibiting the formation of some harmful gases.
What is the easiest way to keep DPF's and EGR valves injectors clean and well lubricated?
The easiest way is to use Dipetane fuel treatment which is designed to keep the injectors ultra clean and to provide the added crucial benefit of extra lubrication. The additional lubrication which can only be provided by Dipetane will counter the decreased lubrication due to the 80% cut in sulphur in diesel fuel. Sulphur in diesel had been providing vital lubrication to protect the injectors from wear and tear, Dipetane now compensates for this loss.
What is a catalytic converter?
A catalytic converter is a device that uses a catalyst to convert three harmful compounds in car exhaust into harmless compounds before they ever leave the car’s¬ exhaust system. The three harmful compounds are:

1. Hydrocarbons (in the form of unburned petrol or diesel)
2. Carbon monoxide (formed by the combustion of hydrocarbon fuels)
3. Nitrogen oxides (created when the heat in the engine forces nitrogen in the air to combine with oxygen)

Carbon monoxide is a poison for any air-breathing animal. Nitrogen oxides lead to smog and acid rain, and hydrocarbons produce smog. In a catalytic converter, a catalyst (in the form of platinum and palladium) is coated onto a ceramic honeycomb or ceramic beads that are housed in a muffler-like package attached to the exhaust pipe. The catalyst helps to convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. It converts the hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water. It also converts the nitrogen oxides back into nitrogen and oxygen.
