Product Details

Product Description

Improves fuel mileage an average of 2.3% and up to 5.7%. Reduces emissions such as hydrocarbons (HC) up to 15%, carbon monoxide (CO) up to 26% and nitrous oxides (NOx) up to 17%. Restores power and performance. Reduces the need for costly higher octane fuel. Reduces noise from carbon rap and pre-ignition. Offers better vehicle drivability and smoother operation.

Untreated Fuel Leads to Poor Engine Performance

A vehicle demonstrates its best efficiency and engine performance when it is new. As the engine ages, its performance suffers from gasoline fuel-generated deposits that form on the fuel injectors, intake valves and combustion chamber. Additives are required to control deposit formation.

Today's fuels, however, lack sufficient treatments of either enough additives or high quality additives. Fuel system deposits result in the following:

• Lost fuel economy
• Lost power and poor throttle response
• Failed emission tests
• Poor drivability - surging, hesitation, stalling, rough idle
• Engine knocking (pinging) and rap
• Difficult starts

Treated Fuel Delivers Maximum Performance

AMSOIL P.i. is the most potent gasoline additive available today. As a concentrated detergent, it is unsurpassed in cleaning combustion chamber deposits, intake valve deposits and port fuel injector deposits. AMSOIL P.i. helps maintain peak engine efficiency, fuel economy, power and drivability in newer low mileage engines. In engines with accumulated deposits, testing showed AMSOIL P.i. provided the following clean-up benefits after only one tank of gasoline:

• Improves fuel mileage an average of 2.3% and up to 5.7%
• Reduced emissions

  • hydrocarbons (HC) up to 15%
  • carbon monoxide (CO) up to 26%
  • nitrous oxides (NOx) up to 17%
• Restored power and performance
• Reduced need for costly higher octane fuel
• Reduced noise from carbon rap and pre-ignition
• Better drivability
• Smoother operation

AMSOIL P.i. works as an "emissions passer." It is ideal for use prior to emissions inspections.

Unsurpassed Deposit Clean-up

Port Fuel Injector Deposits form after the engine has been shut down and there is no gasoline flowing through the injectors. During this "hot soak" period the injectors heat up and the gasoline remaining in the injectors degrades and forms deposits. This can happen very quickly with the use of poor quality gasoline and short trip driving. Because the clearances within the injectors are extremely tight and injectors must deliver precise amounts of "atomized" fuel, even small amounts of deposits can cause injectors to malfunction. Fuel flow is reduced and spray patterns are disrupted, decreasing engine efficiency, power and fuel economy, while increasing exhaust emissions.

Intake Valve Deposits form on the intake side orback side of the valves. As deposits increase, theyrestrict airflow and alter airflow patterns in the cylinder.The deposits disrupt the balanced air/fuel ratio bymomentarily absorbing and releasing fuel, and they cancause valve sticking by getting in the way of the valvestem and guide. Deposits also restrict proper seating,and the valves may be burned. Intake valve depositscause lost engine power, increased emissions, poorengine efficiency and potential valve failure.

Combustion Chamber Deposits form on the top of the pistonsand on the cylinder heads. They increase compressionand absorb heat during combustion to later release it duringthe intake cycle. In some engines with tight squish domes,combustion chamber deposits cause the piston to actually hitthe cylinder head. This is referred to as combustion chamberdeposit interference or “carbon rap.” Combustion chamberdeposits also flake off as they get large, and these flakes canget trapped between the valves and valve seat, resulting incompression loss, difficult starting and rough idle.

Higher compression and stored heat cause increased intakefresh charge temperatures and the increased likelihood ofpre-ignition “knock” or “pinging” when the fuel spontaneouslycombusts prior to spark ignition. This increases emissionsand may cause engine damage. Many of today’s cars have “knock” sensors that adjust spark timing to prevent knock.

Although audible knock is controlled, power is lost from retardedtiming. Higher octane fuels of 4-5 octane numbers can beused to help prevent knock, an effect called “octane requirementincrease.” As a vehicle ages, more expensive higheroctane fuel is needed to keep it operating at peak performance.By cleaning combustion chamber deposits, knock is controlled,power is restored, fuel economy increases and higheroctane fuels are less necessary for peak performance.

Recommendations

Treat one full tank of gas up to 20 gallons with one bottle of P.i. For very large gas tanks, partially fill to 40 gallons and treat with two bottles of P.i. Using more than two bottles per treatment is not recommended. Treat gas every 4,000 miles or 100 hours of service. P.i. helps pass emission tests by running one tank of treated fuel through the engine prior to testing. Safe for use with catalytic converters, oxygen sensors, oxygenated gas and 10 percent ethanol blended gas. Not recommended for two-cycle engines.

DANGER: Combustible. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Harmful if inhaled. Skin and eye irritant. Read precautions on container before use.

HEALTH & SAFETY

This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

It's a treat

I purchase PI, every oil change. I feel that my 2010 Tahoe dose benefit from this fluid as it's high in mileage and the environment here is harsh for any vehicles. I really don't see any fuel mileage increase, but it's the engine is running smoother in the cold mornings.
It's a nice treat for the "Tank".

Would buy again

I used this in one of my older high mileage cars and it seemed to really do what it was intended. I will use this again and probably even in the newer ones.

I would definitely buy this product again

I use this product every time that I change the oil on my vehicles. I drive about 1000 miles per week so I change my oil frequently. It does what it says that it does. i wish it were already added to the gas at the pumps. My vehicles run as smooth as silk.
