Power Service Products, a producer of diesel fuel additives, launched a website for boat owners at home or at sea: MarineDieselAdditives.com.
By EPA mandate, boat owners are required to use Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel, where the sulfur content has been lowered to no more than 15 parts per million (ppm) from its previous maximum allowable content of 500 ppm. ULSD burns cleaner than higher sulfur fuels, but it also reduces the fuel’s resistance to microbial contamination, shortens fuel storage life and impacts engine performance.
MarineDieselAdditives.com enables boat owners to combat these issues with marine-specific fuel additives that clean fuel tanks, keep fuel fresh and extend the life of boat engines. The website, which is optimized for tablet use, provides easier access for boat owners or their maritime crew to purchase the fuel additives in remote areas.
Ed Kramer, president and owner of Power Service Products, said, “Our new website addresses the problems diesel engine owners have with the new low-sulfur fuels. And we’ve developed the ability to purchase online so boat owners don’t have to locate the products at retail outlets. Rather, products can be easily shipped to their next port of call.”
