mechanics are finding themselves dealing with a flood of frustrated owners who
bring in their boats because the engine isn't running right or has a gummed-up
carburetor, only to bring it back as soon as a month later with the same
complaint. The problem is not the
engines - it's the fuel.
introduction of ethanol into fuel has caused a wide range of problems. Ethanol is a fuel, but blending it with
gasoline results in issues that are very often blamed on engines or the
mechanics who maintain them: rough idling, hard starting, gummed-up injectors
or carburetor jets and an overall loss of power and cruising range. Mechanics are reporting that the new
blended fuels are raising havoc with boat engines because the fuel breaks down
very quickly, forming gums too fast for traditional stabilizers to keep
up. The "tried & true" marine
fuel stabilizers and additives that rely on 50-year old technology just don't
work with today's new fuels. They
either cannot remove gum or they remove it in big chunks that end up causing
clogs. The solution is simple;
today's new fuels demand new technology, and that is Star Tron Enzyme Fuel
Treatment. Star Tron is a new,
very effective way of solving a wide range of fuel-related problems. It uses a proprietary blend of enzymes
to stabilize fuel chemistry and break down gum into sub-micron-sized particles
that can be eliminated while the engine is running. Star Tron will dramatically slowing the aging process in
order to keep fuel fresh and at peak combustibility even after long periods of
storage. Its enzymes are
particularly effective at cleaning the entire fuel delivery system to allow
engines to once again perform at peak efficiency.
formation is a major problem with ethanol-blended fuels. Because ethanol and
gasoline do not chemically bond, E10 can begin to break down and form gums very
quickly. As a result, engines that
come out of the shop after expensive carburetor rebuilds or injector cleaning,
but then sit idle for several weeks, may go right back to running poorly when
they are finally used. Star Tron
stabilizes fuel while it also disperses any existing debris to keep it from
clogging injectors or carburetors.
It also helps prevent phase separation that occurs when water and
ethanol bond together and then "fall out" of the gasoline, resulting in degraded
fuel and an engine that can't perform at its best.
powered by Star Tron-treated fuel start easily and run smoothly even after
sitting idle for extended periods.
The enzymes in Star Tron allow more oxygen to bond to the fuel
hydrocarbons which results in a more complete burn of the fuel charge, even in
ethanol fuels. This translates
into easier starting, better throttle response, decreased emissions, the
prevention of carbon deposits and an overall improvement in engine performance
and fuel economy.
since ethanol first appeared in marine fuel, Star Tron has been solving
ethanol-related problems, quickly and effectively. Star Tron works in all 2 and 4-cycle engines, regardless of
size or age.

BioborEB® is a specifically formulated additive for gasoline and ethanol fuel blends which helps combat the negative effects of ethanol in fuel tanks and engines, while increasing engine performance, efficiency and fuel stability.
Ethanol is extremely corrosive and can be detrimental to your engine if not properly blended with the gasoline in your fuel tank. Ethanol over time will separate from the gasoline in your fuel tank, move to the bottom of your fuel tank and mix with water that is contained in your fuel. This phase separation in fuel causes your engine to burn this bad fuel, which will lead to engine damage, loss of engine efficiency and loss of power. If your boat, truck, stand-by power unit or fuel storage unit sits unused for any length of time, this phase separation of fuel will definitely occur. BioborEB® your fuel tank to prevent this problem by keeping the gasoline and ethanol in suspension, not allowing the phase seperation to
BioborEB® additionally acts as a fuel stabilizer for up to two years of storage. BioborEB® was developed for all two and four-cycle engines.
BioborEB® also acts as a sludge detergent and dispersant, which cleans injectors and prevents corrosion leading to better combustion, fuel efficiency and an all-around better running, cleaner engine.
To sum it up, BioborEB® can give your engine better performance and more power, with better fuel economy. BioborEB® provides corrosion protection for injector chambers and intake valves and reduces engine maintenance costs. In addition, BioborEB® eliminates the worrisome problem of fuel phase separation.
