additive was originally developed for ultra high intensity applications which included use by the United States Department of Defense. It was designed to stabilize large quatities of fuel including diesel, heavyfuel oil, and gasoline. It also had to be extremely concentrated, improve the efficiency of the fuel, and increase the longevity of engine components in every harsh climates. The highly concentrated formula of Fuel Ox allows for easy dosing and a small inventory.
The Fuel OxTM is a multifunctional and comprehensive fuel treatment that enhances fuel combustion and engine performance. The Fuel OxTM contains a patented catalyst that lowers the ignition point of fuel causing an earlier, more sustained combustion. One liter of fuel additive is designed to treat 10,000 liters of distillate fuels.
In 2014, Fuel Ox, LLC began marketing this uniquely powerful line of additives. From these humble beginnings President Rand Taylor and his son Alec started by reaching out to local construction and trucking companies, farmers, municipalities, and independent operators. They proceeded to build a strong base of loyal customers by providing them the strongest fuel additive on the planet combined with excellent customer service, attention to detail, and the prompt fulfillment of custom orders. Since then Fuel Ox has grown to become an established and respected company whose products are utilized by many corporate leaders across a broad range of industries and is now utilized on 6 continents.

Fuel Ox additives remove water, protect against carbon build-up on all internal engine parts, disperse sludge, and prevents corrosion of tanks and components. These additives also contain stabilizers to protect fuel from degrading and becoming unusable for up to two years.
1. Fuel Ox was originally designed specifically for the United States Navy in the mid 1970’s and has been steadily improved on in direct response to ongoing requests by this client. The end result is an additive that rectifies more adverse fuel issues than any other and does so in unique and superior ways. No other additive in the world has undergone a more rigorous life of testing and transformation than Fuel Ox.
2. The Fuel Ox patented catalyst is metals-based (unique in the industry) and lowers the combustion point of diesel fuel by over 200 degrees F and in gasoline by over 150 degrees F. This results in a more thorough combustion with less unburnt hydrocarbon molecules (soot) that reduces smoke by over 60% and therefore lowers the stress on Diesel Particulate Filters further, resulting in 50%+ less regenerations to in cases that the Cat 4 or Cat 5 emissions systems are not in place. Environmental benefits are obviously significant, though less easy to quantify.
3. More thorough combustion translates into more power, quicker starts and better fuel efficiency: 6-10% fuel savings is average.
4. Fuel Ox is extremely concentrated with 1 gallon treating 10,000 gallons of fuel.
5. Fuel Ox works in any hydrocarbon based fuel (Jet, Bunker and Kerosene as well as Gas and Diesel) because it interacts directly with the hydrocarbon molecule itself.
6. Fuel Ox controls harmful microbes such as bacteria and other types of foreign life forms that tend to grow in diesel fuel. Most competitors are forced to offer a separate product to combat this issue.
7. Fuel Ox is the most comprehensive fuel additive on the planet: in addition to above it adds lubricity to the upper cylinder heads and injectors, removes varnish and carbon buildup in the engine, is a de-emulsifier of water (removing it safely from the fuel), contains anti-corrosives to protect the inside of all fuel tanks and contains stabilizers to protect fuel for up to two years.
In summary, Fuel Ox is an extremely potent and economical product with tangible and easily noticed with normal use.

The Fuel Ox fuel additive comprises a fuel stabilizer and a compound for catalysis. A dispersant is provided along with a high flash solvent, a lubricant, a biostatic agent, and a metal deactivator. The Fuel Ox may be used with multiple fuel types, including but not limited to diesel fuel oils and gasoline.
The Fuel Ox improves combustion efficiency of any hydrocarbon fuel, thereby increasing the amount of BTUs given off while reducing harmful emissions. The Fuel Ox can additionally protect a fuel-burning device from scale build-up, improve burn rate, act as a lubricant, stabilize the fuel to prevent repolymerization, disperse macroscopic sludge and provide a biostatic agent to prevent microbial growth and act as a strong demulsifier.
Fuel additives have become more and more important to individuals and to industry given the escalating prices of processed oil. As the price of fuel increases, the importance of utilizing every possible BTU accessible in burning fuel increases. Additionally, given the focus over the last two decades on increasing fuel efficiency while lowering emissions, it has become just as important to burn fuel efficiently to reduce emissions, thereby protecting the environment.
Prior fuel additives have generally been concerned with improving air quality by one of four basic approaches: pre-combustion removal of contaminants, post-combustion removal of contaminants, use of low sulfur and vanadium fuel oils, and blending fuel oils. The Fuel Ox is concerned with a fifth approach, improved combustion of the fuel, thereby giving a two-fold benefit: (1 ) more energy obtained from a fixed amount of fuel, and (2) less contaminant emissions from the fuel.
The Fuel Ox provides the best energy output and least emission output with the most complete combustion of the fuel. This will reduce deposits of carbon residue scale and soot and acid smut emissions. This decreased scale will improve thermal transfer within a fuel utilizing device, thereby increasing efficiency and increasing BTU output. Additionally, the less scale is built up, the less maintenance a fuel-burning device will need. Scale build up is reduced on valve stems, valve seats and pipes.
In order for the most complete combustion of fuel to be obtained, it is best to incorporate a fuel stabilizer within the composition of the fuel additive. Fuel begins to destabilize and repolymerize immediately after refining. The longer a fuel is stored, the greater the amount of repolymerization. This results in the formation of submicronic particles that can agglomerate and eventually plug fuel filters and atomizers. Eventually, sludge will form and the fuel will become unpumpable.
This phenomenon is especially prevalent with fuel oil utilized for heating systems. Unfortunately, fuel oil line systems are often stand-by systems, thereby allowing the fuel oil to sit unused for lengthy amounts of time, allowing repolymerization to occur. Many fuel companies will periodically pump and filter the standby fuel supplies to remove sludge.
As the rate of repolymerization is a direct function of age and energy input into the fuel, this does more harm than good, unless the polymerized agglomerates are depolymerized and dispersed. The Fuel Ox’s stabilizer will help prevent the repolymerization of the fuel that typically occurs during storage.
Another issue resulting in repolymerization of fuel is the presence of various microbial strains naturally present within the fuel oil. These bacteria feed on nitrogen, sulfur and iron oxides present in the fuel. The bacteria themselves provide a surface for repolymerization. Therefore, growth of the bacteria result in increased agglomeration. Consequently, it is helpful to provide a biostatic agent within the composition to reduce microbial growth. Additionally, it acts as a corrosion inhibitor to prevent iron (which can be present both naturally in the fuel or as part of the invention as the organometallic compound) from oxidizing. This has a side benefit of inhibiting bacteria (naturally present in the fuel) from feeding on nitrogen, sulfur, and iron oxides in the fuel. The Fuel Ox’s biocide eliminates bacterial growth.
One consequence with the combustion of fuel is the resulting harmful emissions. Automobile engines typically utilize catalytic converters, a large cumbersome device that catalyzes reactions to reduce emissions in the automobile’s exhaust gases. A catalytic converter contains small beads that are coated with metals, such as palladium and platinum.
When exhaust gases pass through the catalytic converter, these metals act as catalysts, encouraging chemical reactions that change pollutants, such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons, into less harmful carbon dioxide and water. Since the 1970s, state and national governments in the United States have passed increasingly stringent emission-control measures. To meet these emission standards, since the early 1980s, all new cars sold in the United States have been equipped with catalytic converters. Additionally, many states require time-consuming routine, sometimes yearly, inspections of these devices. The Fuel Ox incorporates compounds that overcome the need to use such a device. This would eliminate the need for the inspections and space taken up by the bulky catalytic converters. The Fuel Ox compound effectively acts as a catalytic converter, utilizing the metal of the compound as a catalyst to react with carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. The reaction leaves harmless carbon dioxide and water as products. This reduces emissions of the by-products of combustion, unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide.
The lubricant compound utilized in the Fuel Ox will help provide the required lubricating properties for operation of diesel generators, pumps, and the like.
Fuels today do not contain dispersants to aid in dispersing particulate matter, thereby preventing and additionally, breaking up agglomerates in fuel. The Fuel Ox does contain a dispersant to aid in the prevention and elimination of existing agglomerates.
Finally, a metal deactivator compound is in the Fuel Ox The deactivator coats the inside of a fuel tank and other related parts to prevent corrosion of the steel or other metals
