Our customers do the talking for us. Fuel Right ticks the boxes in so many ways, from preventing contamination, improved economy to cost of treatment and convenient dose rates.


To whom this may concern,

Miclyn Express Offshore has been using Fuel Right in our inshore and offshore vessels over the last 4 years with exemplary results.

The fuel treatment 30K has been outstanding in the rectification of contaminated fuel due to bio fouling within holding tanks. In some occasions where bio fouling due to water contamination has developed within Cargo tanks, Fuel Right has been introduced with outstanding results within weeks. Fuel Right has been so effective that during periodic tank inspections there has been zero fouling by the way of sludge left on any tank coatings within the tanks.

Fuel Right 30K has saved MEO thousands of dollars by enabling MEO to treat bulk fuel and the holding tanks themselves. Not needing to remove/shift fuel from tanks, gas free for inspection and introduce further chemicals for cleaning is a huge plus.

I started using Fuel Right in my commercial vessel a couple of years ago. I instantly noticed my engine sounded much smoother and had less emissions upon start up. I also had more power and my fuel burn went from 22 litres a hour to 17 litres per hour at the same speed and rev range. After that I used it on every fuel up and i’m sure it saved me lots of dollars and my motor was happier for it.

I would definitely recommend this product to anybody with a diesel motor it proved itself to me over time and now I use it in my truck as well. Give it a go I’m sure you will notice the difference.

Due to the weather and sea conditions our AMF 1170 Quick Response Vessel (QRV) is used in, we need to absolutely confident we will have no issues with fuel contamination like diesel bug, or water in fuel. Definitely an unacceptable situation during a callout.Whilst servicing the boat on the hard, we discovered a black gel like contamination in both fuel tanks, and because we have had previous experience with this, we sought out a long term solution we could rely on.

Through contact with some of the local marine mechanics, we came to Fuel Right. A unique highly concentrated fuel conditioning product from the USA. The Taranaki distributor suggested we double dose initally to break down the sludge contamination. We therefore dosed both tanks with Fuel Right FR 15k, and it worked!

This treatment successfully broke down the sludge plus the added benefit of pushing water out of the fuel (a requirement of engine manufacturers that water shouldn’t be in the fuel system).

After changing the filters we put the boat back into the sea and test ran it. We have had no bug problems since regularly dosing the fuel with the Fuel Right.

I met with Student Transport Canada yesterday and results are excellent – master mechanic will recommend us – he is VERY impressed! I saw the fuel economy data today – ranging 12-15% improvement. I am waiting for approval for release from the bus company president. The mechanic was amazed at how clean the injector looked.

They are using :

  • International 365 Diesel engine

  • Mileage 166,592 km

  • 2008 school bus

The Injector condition is “amazing” after running on FuelRight.

Dear Mr. Sari,

Following our yesterday’s teleconference I would like to inform you on my observations regarding the use of “FuelRight” additive in our vessels.

Our fleet consists of three vessels. Two tanker/ro-ro vessels that operate solely on MGO and one chemical tanker that operates primarily on IFO 180 but uses MGO to enter/leave ports. We frequently had a lot of problems with bacterial infections in MGO storage tanks. At the time, we were using Bioguard to treat the MGO tanks and while it was somewhat effective, we actually had to manually clean the MGO tanks every 2,5 years (when the vessels were dry-docked) in order to remove sludge.

In May 2015 we started using FuelRight additive to all our bunker tanks both in MGO and IFO. Immediately we noticed a night and day difference in MGO tanks. There were no problems with microbial infection whatsoever. In fact we have now stopped using the onboard microbial test kits and we can almost strip the tank to its bottom without having problems with filters clogging as we had before using fuelright. I personally inspected the MGO bunker tanks of one of our vessels that was dry-docked on September 2015. The tanks were clean.
As for the IFO 180, I carried out a lot of tests, with and without Fuelright during these eighteen months over several bunkerings as to ensure that I could attribute any positive results to Fuelright and not to the possible variations in bunker quality. I can now attest that there is less sludge production and the fuel filters’ cleaning intervals increase significantly, about 30% when using Fuelright. Bunker quality of course still remains of great importance.

The vessel has also shown significant fuel economy, about 18% in the last year, but since we have implemented some other good practices regarding fuel economy at the same time that we started using FuelRight, it is difficult to assess how much does the additive result in fuel economy by itself.

Overall, ours has been a positive experience. We intend to keep using FuelRight in the future, treating our MGO and IFO bunkers on a continuous basis.
