Hi folks

This has been a "interesting" thread.

A few questions for Dom

You said about I think CAT and Yamaha being happy/endorsing, do you know about Yanmar.

Also is there are detrement or advantage when used from new/running you engine in.

Like many people I will try most things and decide for myself but would use it more to keep bugs at bay rather than anything else.
When my RIB turns up that is


Regards Gary

Here is an idea.

There are three of us, Mark W. Mike G. and I, who are having Floscan meters fitted to our boats.
Why don't we try do some tests using these devices, to try and give this forum some "user" feedback?
We could do some runs, over a period of time without Soltron, then add it in, religiously, and do some more cruising.
The "tests" would take some time, and might not be as academically rigorous as some would like, but they would at least give some more opinions on which people would be better able to make their own decisions.

All I have got to do now is find out where I can buy it!
At the moment I can't even buy diesel in Torbay, I have to go to Dartmouth to fill-up!!

No problem using it in a brand new engine. If you check most warranties closely they stipulate the type and grade of fuel to be used, if you get the bug and your engine breaks down your warranty claim will be rejected.

No sorry nothing for Yanmar yet, but the local agent reccomends it to all the people he sells engines to.

As I said before proper fuel combustion leads to correct operating temperatures and less wear and tear. So no different for a new engine to that of a worn one, however you will not have to change your filters as much, you will never get sludge or bug, you will always have enough enzyme in your tank to combat a crap load of fuel should you encounter it.

I have used it in my new boat since I bought it (2.5yrs ago)and the filters have only been changed as per the service schedule even though I was informed there was no need to change them but didnt want to invalidate the warranty.

Pm me with your ideas and we will discuss it, could be a good idea as long as the test bed is set first.

Thanks Mateboy its all brill stuff. I thank you for your work.

Doms head must be buzzing.

He has demonstrated to me that he believes in his products and has some good testimonials.

I have decided to run with it,and I dont want any for free.

Im putting my money behind my beliefs not only in the Soltron Stakes.I cant promise buying any shares in it ,but it does look a good price at the moment?

We will see how she goes,our engines are new and the boat is designed to be mega fuel efficient so the results of what can be achievd or obtained in the range and fuel emmisions stakes will be of great interest to me and others I hope.

I will report back my findings..
