ValvTect marks additive milestone

ValvTect Petroleum announced that more than 1 billion gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel were treated with its ValvTect and Diesel Guard fuel additives last year.

The company’s milestone is an indication of the widening use of gasoline and diesel additives to mitigate the effects of ethanol in gasoline.

“To put this in perspective, 1 billion gallons of fuel is more than enough fuel to power every car, truck, powerboat and piece of farm and construction equipment in the United States for more than two days,” company president Jerry Nessenson said in a statement. “We are very proud to reach this milestone. It is especially gratifying since, due to the economy and high fuel prices, demand for gasoline and diesel is still off as much as 20 percent in some markets, including marine and over-the-road diesel fuel.”

The company will soon celebrate its 25th anniversary.
