Soltron

Yes it is sold in the Uk although we are short on stockists in your area at the moment but that issue is being addressed today. In that respect do you have anyone near you that would be interested in stocking Soltron let me know.

There are mail order places that do post it like ASAP-supplies they are on the net. Price normally in UK about 30 for 500ml which doses 2500 litres of fuel DIESEL or PETROL.

Let me know how you get on or if you have difficulty.

1. Can you start to use Soltron, then because you can't find any, stop using it? And does this cause a problem?

Yes you can stop using it but will leave you without its benefits at the next fill up but not entirely as some reidue will still be in your tank.

2. As ones fuel tanks, at any one time, contain an amount of fuel that is only approximatable, does it matter if you add a bit too much or too little?

Nah too much just wastes it the dosage is spot on and does not harm anything over or under dosed.

3. Does it's use effect engine temperature?

Because Soltron helps to burn all the fuel and effect full combustion your engine runs at the correct temperature for which it was designed. If an engine is not combusting properly then the temp is not as it should be and increases wear and tear on the engine.

4. What is the very approximate additive cost of using Soltron per litre of fuel? For example, if fuel casts 25p per litre and Soltron gives 10% better performance but adds 20% to the effective cost of a litre of fuel, then this is a factor to be taken into account


Economy is just one part of the equasion and as we all know economy is always hard to measure unless you do a test like Alans over 1200 miles to get a good example of it. Imagine this Alan P decided not to use Soltron and halfway across the Atlantic (after picking up some dodgy fuel somewhere) the engine packs up...how much has it cost him not to use it? Remember its not just the economy its the reduction of emmissions which means less cleaning of the tubes (save on cleaning fluids and time) the proper aspiration and running of your engine, comfort in the knowledge you have clean fuel that wont cause a break down and that little edge on performance when you need it. Try it in your SIBs guys see the difference in the engines as it will respond quicker and you will also find the engine slightly quieter. You are paying for all these qualities not just a fuel saving.

If I really went technical you would not understand what I was on about.

I am no Scientist for sure,but Im a wise old bugger and have learnt when in doubt, speak to those who do know the subject well and if possible borrow there in depth experience.

I will come back to you when a real tecki in the world of fuel additives comes back to me.If they are favorable I will state that.

I have no axe to grind with Soltron just a genuine interest in whether I should start using it or not.

And what the downsides maybe if there are any?

I am no scientist but have learnt enuf about the fuel world to understand what where why and how.

What do you think are the down sides to it? What can you lose from using it? I think you have to answer some of the questions yourself before airing them.

There can be downsides to it but only if you ship is not in order, if you keep good management of your vessel then this product will only enhance it.

If you are genuinly interested then save your time and money on phoning tekkie people up and doing your web searches, buy a 125ml bottle (about 8) which will treat 625 litres of fuel and go for it. FYI there are sea fisheries and marine police vessels using it, Thort I would add that as you seem to be involved with rescue boats.

If I added 125 mill of oil to my fuel it could be argued that it enhances the life of my engine.

If I also added 125 mill of water to my fuel 160 gall tanks it could be argued that it gave me a better range with the water being added,not by a lot though.


Its all about accurate substantive claims and what it costs to how much improvements you actually get?

Were talking about using a lot more if I take it on .As not just one bottle ,as it will become one of those things you start off with and use for the boats life.So I think I am founded in being a little bit more interested in your recomendations,as the costs to run with this product will be considerabe over time.So the benifits need a little more of a look at.
