Q: What Is FuelFX-ALT?
A: FuelFX-ALT is a proprietary lubricant additive that reduces friction and wear and reinforces the additive systems of any lubricant. ALT fortifies the additive system of any oil and also increases the amount of film strength of that lubricant while creating a complex chemical reaxction with the metallic wearing surfaces. It does not adversely affect or harm existing additive systems or the equipment where it is used.
Q: Why Use ALT?
A: When lubricants are used, they become contaminated with acids, dirt, carbon, water and many other compounds, and wear out quickly. ALT reinforces the additives in your lubricants for better protection and longer useful life. ALT’s patent pending technology quickly increases the film strength of lubricants, allowing more power and virtually eliminates friction, resulting in less wear on expensive equipment.
Q: How does ALT improve engine performance?
A: When used in gasoline or diesel engines, ALT reduces the formation of harmful deposits throughout the engine, improves film strength, reduces friction, and provides extreme pressure protection. ALT provides these features in all metal lubricating applications , and succeeds where other lubricants and additives cannot.
Q: Can I use ALT products in regular cars and trucks?
A: Yes, by all means. As with all FuelFX products, ALT is formulated to provide superior performance to all applications. ALT will increase fuel mileage and reduce wear in both diesel and gasoline engines, or wherever they are used.
Q: Where is ALT used?
A: ALT may be used in automatic transmissions, both gas and diesel engines, outboard motors, gear boxes, speed reducers, hydrostatic drives, differentials, manual transmissions, final drives, transfer cases, heavy equipment , power tools , weapons, fishing reels, and the list goes on. Follow the label directions to add ALT to any lubricating application.
Q: Is ALT cost effective?
A: ALT costs less than any other product we have tested. When used as an additive with other lubricants, ALT will extend the operating life of the lubricant and the machinery it is used in, reducing wear and tear and unnecessary maintenance.
Q: What are the correct use ratios for ALT?
A: Please refer to the ALT data sheet or the product label for the various suggested uses and rates.
Q: Can I use all of my vehicles and equipment?
A: Absolutely! ALT was specifically formulated for use in all internal combustion engines. From large diesel to small, hard working 4-stroke engines. ALT is ideal for 4-cycle snowmobiles, ATV’s, personal watercraft, 4-stroke boat motors, lawn equipment, etc…
Q: Can I use ALT in my car or truck?
A: YES. ALT can be used in any gasoline or diesel 4-stroke automobile engine.
Q: How long has been on the market?
A: ALT was introduced in the late 1980’s
Q: Can ALT be used in any engine?
A: Yes…ALT may be used in any mechanically sound gasoline or diesel fueled engine. This means, basically, that ALT is excellent for use in any vehicle’s engine.
Q: Will ALT void the warranty of a new vehicle?
A: Absolutely not! Manufacturers’ warranties are based upon the use of oils meeting specific API Service Classifications. ALT is an additive and does not affect the manufacturer’s warranty.
Q: Can I use ALT in all Seasons?
A: ALT adds many benefits to motor oils and other equipment lubricants. ALT is made to protect and perform better than petroleum oils at both high and low temperature extremes. ALT provides ready lubrication at extremely low temperatures for easier winter starting and significantly reduced engine wear. At high temperatures, no conventional motor oil can compare to the overall protection that ALT provides.
Q: Will using ALT increase gas mileage?
A: Yes. Independent studies have shown the use of ALT to increase fuel mileage while improving overall performance as well.
Q: Is ALT compatible with all motor oils?
A: Yes. ALT is compatible with both synthetic or petroleum motor oils.
Q: Will the use of ALT extend oil- drain intervals?
A: ALT is highly resistant to the destructive effects of heat, and does not break down like petroleum oils. This means that the use of ALT in your motor oil can provide much longer drain intervals than conventional lubricants.
Q: Will ALT decrease oil consumption?
A: Yes. When used in mechanically sound engines, ALT can reduce oil consumption.
Q: Is there a recommended procedure for adding ALT?
A: ALT can be added anytime to your engines oil, however; for peak performance, you should add ALT at the next oil and filter change , and follow the directions on the product label.
