Add 50ml Hydra CEBO to 50 litres of fuel.

Dose Rate - 1:500

Add 100ml Hydra CEBO to 50 litres of fuel.

 

Diesel engines require a minimum cetane number to run correctly. In Europe, diesel fuel is manufactured to a European Union specification i.e., EU 590. Fuel meeting this specification has a minimum cetane number of 51 and premium diesel fuel can have a cetane number as high as 60.

Hydra CEBO Cetane Booster delivers an increase in cetane number to your diesel fuels. It will increase the cetane number by up to 4 to 8 points depending on the quality of fuel being treated. It contains 2-EHN (2-Ethylhexyl Nitrate) plus additional lubricants. We add extra lubricants to counter the fuel drying effect that 2-EHN has on diesel fuels made from hydrocarbons. These lubricants also reduce friction inside the engine, helping to improve fuel economy.

Hydra CEBO provides an economic route to meeting quality specifications and a platform for creating premium fuels. Diesel bug treatment improves fuel combustion by reducing the ignition delay period resulting in easier cold starting, reduction in white smoke, harmful emission reduction and reduced noise from the engine. Better fuel combustion means improved fuel economy.

 

DIESEL FUEL QUALITY

The overall quality of diesel fuel is dependent on a number of factors. These include BTU value, viscosity, pour flow point, aromatic and paraffinic content, and resistance to contaminant build-up such as water and bacteria. A diesel fuel’s quality also is very dependent on its cetane number.

The cetane number (CN) is an index of the ignition point or combustion quality of diesel fuel and is measured using an ASTM D613 test. This is the point that the fuel will self-ignite under pressure inside the engine cylinder.

Standard European BS EN590 diesel from the pump normally has a minimum cetane number of around 51, with premium diesel a little higher. When refineries are producing basic diesel fuels, they will only work to the minimum cetane number, as they want to manufacture as cheaply as possible.

With modern vehicles depending on engine design, driving conditions, and so on, the optimum cetane value for most vehicles is around the mid to high 50s.

A fuel with too low of a cetane number for a particular engine will result in reduced cold-start ability, rough running, excess engine noise/vibration and reduced combustion quality. 

This leads to reduced performance, excess emissions, and carbon build-up throughout the engine and emission system components (intake, EGR, DPF) etc.

A higher cetane fuel that is a proper match for the engine will reduce ignition delay, improve overall combustion quality, liberate more BTU (energy) from the fuel, and improve performance and MPG.

It also will reduce engine noise, deposit build-up, and exhaust emissions. Diesel and MGO fuels with cetane number lower than minimum engine requirements can cause rough engine operation. They are more difficult to start, especially in cold weather.

Many low cetane fuels, increase engine deposits resulting in more smoke, increased exhaust emissions and greater engine wear.

Using fuels which meet engine operating requirements will improve cold starting, reduce smoke during start-up, improve fuel economy, reduce exhaust emissions, improve engine durability and reduce noise and vibration.

Hydra CEBO delivers an increase in cetane number to your diesel and MGO fuel. It will increase cetane number by up to 8 points depending on quality of fuel being treated.

Hydra CEBO provides an economic route to meeting quality specifications and a platform for creating premium fuels.

Improves fuel combustion by reducing the ignition delay period resulting in easier cold starting, reduction in white smoke, harmful emission reduction and reduced noise from engine. Better fuel combustion means improved fuel economy.

 

What should I look for in a cetane booster?

Contrary to some propaganda, alkyl nitrates still offer the greatest improvement in cetane number, with measured increases of up to eight points. 

When it comes to alkyl nitrates, 2-ethylhexyl nitrate (2-EHN) is the most popular and most respected. It offers more consistent ignition quality whilst reducing unwanted and negative combustion conditions.

Fuel additive manufacturers recognise both the benefits of boosting the cetane number and using 2-EHN so much now that most offer cetane improvers.   

 

The question in this case is what are you getting for your money?

From close examination it appears many cetane boosters contain useless fillers. To maximise profits most manufacturers still insist on the single bottle per tank philosophy. 

Some 200-300ml bottles that treat a single tank of fuel have as little as 20% active ingredients. 

This is lucrative for the manufacturer but not a good value for the consumer. Therefore, it is important to understand what you are getting for your money.

The optimum amount of 2-EHN is around 30-100ml per tank of fuel, depending on the engine and base cetane level. 

As 2-EHN can reduce lubricity it is important that a lubricant is also blended in unless you are making your own bio-diesel which will have sufficient lubricity from the fats and oils at time of production. 

To ensure you are getting the best value, make sure the product contains at least 50% 2-EHN and that a reasonable proportion of the remainder contains useful ingredients, such as lubricant.

 

So what do we recommend and why?

Active cetane improvers are essentially a form of fuel modification, or more accurately, combustion modification.

However, when combined with the correct fuel catalyst technology, and lubricity additives, they can turn the most mediocre pump fuels and biodiesels into super diesel that will outperform the best premium pump fuels.

Rather than introduce another diluted cetane booster, Hydra decided to release a concentrated chemical product Hydra CEBO that contains 100% active ingredients. It provides optimum increases in cetane whilst being able to treat multiple tanks of fuel, rather than just one.

Hydra also added their low Sulphur, low temperature lubricant to improve quality even   further.

It contains a minimum 95% 2-EHN with the remainder composed a specialist lubricant blend that protects the entire fuel system against the harmful effects of low lubricity, low Sulphur fuels.

This results in an optimum combustion condition, comprehensive fuel system protection with performance increase, and reduction in harmful exhaust emissions.

What is cetane boost?

Hydra CEBO cetane boost contains 2-EHN (2-ethylhexyl nitrate) plus lubricants, these lubricants overcome the potential drying effect of 2-EHN and ensure that your fuel has the maximum lubrication possible, reducing the HFRR Wear Profile to less than 300.

What is the best diesel cetane booster?

The best cetane booster should always contain 2-EHN (2-ethylhexyl nitrate) blended with low sulphur lubricants, which will reduce the friction in the cylinder thereby improving the coefficient of friction, reduce corrosion and help improve fuel economy.

Should I use cetane booster?

If you are not buying a premium grade it is always a good idea to use a product containing a cetane booster, as generally cheap supermarket fuel does not have a high enough cetane number to get the best out of your engine.

What is the best diesel cetane booster?

Hydra CEBO cetane booster contains 2-EHN 2-ethylhexyl nitrate) which is the most cost-effective diesel cetane booster raw material we add lubricants to counter the drying effects of 2-EHN and to lubricate the fuel pump and reduce friction between the piston rings and the cylinder walls, all of which create a smoother running more economical engine.

Do cetane boosters work?

They are an essential part of a diesel fuels chemical make-up, the more bio diesel percentage in your fuel the more important it is to use a fuel additive containing a cetane booster.

seat Leon FR 170PD diesel

Since owning my Leon when the outside temperature is below 6c it starts to get more of a challenge to start. Spent £1000's trying to sort this out and the final component change was a Valeo 2kw starter which made a massive difference. However even though it starts much quicker it was still running lumpy especially under 2c. Since using this product it fires up and runs totally smooth. When warm and ideling it feels like the car isn't running it's that smooth amazing product and great value for money.

I had some problems with my VW 1,6 TDI Diesel engine after the Motorsoftwareupdate (VW-Diesel-Skandal). After using your additives the problems (strong diesel knock, bad gas acceptance) are away and the engine run`s very well again!
