For Heavily Contaminated Fuel System
Dilution rate: 1:2500 i.e., 250ml treats 625 litres of fuel.

Refuelling Dose to Protect Clean Fuel System
Dilution rate: 1:5000 i.e., 250 ml of treats 1,250 litres of heating oil. Treat oil tanks every time they are topped up.


Vaporising burners as found in Aga, Rayburn and Range Master cookers are extremely sensitive to carbon and soot build-up, it is not unknown for them to soot up every 4-6 weeks. Hydra Vulcan prevents these deposits from building up, keeping the burners free of soot between services.


Many heating boilers are of a pressure jet design which use precise fuel metering through narrow shaped spray channels. Injector deposits mean reduced fuel flow. Whereas 100% clean injectors give optimal fuel spray pattern. Each finely dispersed particle of fuel is surrounded by many molecules of air (20% oxygen) ensuring a more complete burn. Which in turn gives you better fuel economy, reduced emissions, and improved boiler durability.


Hydra Vulcan contains heavy duty detergents that prevent the formation of and removes existing deposits from burners and injectors and heat exchangers. In the oil tank safely and rapidly dissolves years of corrosive sludge back into the fuel where it's burned away. Also creates a protective barrier to help prevent the sludge build-up from coming back, giving you the best heating oil additive that money can buy.


When using Hydra Vulcan additive for heating oil it upgrades standard heating oil to a premium standard for heating oil. The boiler fires easier with reduced soot and fuel consumption. Better combustion means less deposits on burners and heat exchanger.

Can I mix Hydra Vulcan if I have an additive already in my tank?

You will be OK as long as the other additive has been designed for domestic heating boiler oil treatment. Just dose at the correct amount for your volume of oil.

Will using Hydra Vulcan effect my boiler warranty? 

Our product has been designed so that treated fuel still adheres to the following standards: BS 2869Class A2 and BS 2689 Class D, therefore it will not affect your boilers warranty.

Is this use for putting straight into home heating oil tank which feeds the central heating boiler only ?

Yes, Add Hydra Vulcan heating oil additive straight in to the oil tank in correct dilution then top up with new fuel. Please make sure Fuel tanks being treated should be at least 10% full.

I've just replaced my oil tank but although a lot of sludge was removed some contaminated oil was transferred back to the new tank. If I'm adding the Hydra Vulcan to the fuel do I need to add a biocide additive as well our will the Heating Oil Additive do both jobs.

To play safe we recommend you to add the biocide Hydra FPB-77 FuelPlus as well.

Can you please advise if the Hydra Vulcan is suitable for use in a solid fuel Rayburn stove that was converted to oil using a Don burner? The burner is not a vaporising burner, but a gravity feed oil drip. I do know that some types of additive are not suitable for this type of burner and just wondered if you had encountered this problem before? Thanks

This will still work with your type of burner.

Hi, is the amount of heating oil additive critical ie if I buy some? Is it possible to add too much?

No. If you overdose it is OK.

Hi. Can I just check this is for kerosene? Also, why two lids? Thanks

Yes. One is measuring cylinder & other one is direct pouring.

Old Rayburn with wick burners does your additive cause any problems with these burners?

 No, it will work OK with these.

Heating oil additive
Thursday, 12 December 2019  | 

Had my boiler serviced & was recommended to use an additive as there was some sludge in the bottom of the tank. Since adding Hydra the water & heating seems hotter & the needle on my oil level gauge seems to be going down slower. Not sure if it's just down to the Hydra, but there's definitely a difference. Will be adding it every tank fill now.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding my purchasing experience as a customer of Hydra-Fuel Additives.

I have made a number of purchases over recent years and have the process to be easy, efficient and timely in terms of delivery.

The product seems to be effective in my oil burner and I shall no doubt order some more in about three months.

Boiler running more quietly
Tuesday, 16 July 2019  | 

Have had problems with my boiler sooting up, and playing up like only firing up for a few seconds at a time. Have had it serviced/cleaned 3 times in the last 7 months. So have had it serviced again and also added this product to the oil tank. So will have to wait and see if it works the only thing I can say the boiler is much quieter and working as it should.

Received good advice about what type of additive to buy, and I have noticed that our boiler has not needed any reset for quite some time. Will definitely buy the additive again next year when filling the tank.
