X66 - two diesel-based effect and cleaning additives for gasoline and E85
I was first doubted whether it is at all possible to mix diesel into ethanol
or E85? After a few laboratory tests, I found that it is possible to mix diesel
in E85 up to 20 per cent (by volume), then it begins to separate itself. It
goes very well to mix 15 % diesel in E85, also for E85 of inferior quality
(aqueous). Since diesel lowers the octane rating, is a high concentration
of diesel in E85 or gasoline directly harmful (for an Otto-engine)!
It can therefore only be question of small amounts.
White spirit and lighter fluid has in many cases excellent washing
properties and dissolves most contaminants. They are both miscible in
ethanol, but can be mixed with ethanol (high concentration) up to 40
volume per cent.
D66 is thus a mixture of 66 % diesel and 33 % white spirit, while T66
consist of 66% hydrogen treated lighter fluid and 33% diesel.
D66 role as the supreme additive for both gasoline and E85 has finally
now got competition from T66. D66 still rules when it comes to gasoline
- it's about ethanol, one should invest in T66. D66 and T66 but also
AT2 have effect-enhancing properties and may reduce the injection time
by 25 to 30 %. In addition solves diesel and white spirit a variety of
organic contaminants in the fuel (for example, PIB*). Diesel has no clear
effect peak but it decreases if the dose exceeds 0.5 %. Incidentally shall
not T66 over-or under-dosed while D66 has wider margins there.
If D66 alone should be used as a fuel additive so is it preferable to put
the right amount of acetone in it, which then needs to be adapted to the fuels
gasoline content - this rule can not be applied for T66.
T66 or rather said lighter fluid in T66 should never be mixed with any
type of alcohol or other secondary alcohols. It will be dosed alone and
must not come into contact with alcohol until it is united in an alcohol fuel.
Petroleum products such as gasoline and diesel, but also acetone are harmless
to T66. Before T66 is used should one first incorporate it in AT2. Acetone
is necessary and V-Power is prepared with other useful naphtha additives.
T66 that combined with AG+ I call LFG (ligther fluid glycol) or NAM
(naphtha alcohol mix) or NAMAG (nam adapted glycol). The most optimal is
however: NAMAG+OC (namag + oxygen control).
* = PIB or polyisobutylene - is classified as a thickening agent, but is still an
additive in gasoline and diesel fuels. It has a cleansing effect and reduces the risk
of knocking (octane-enhancing). For E85 occur the opposite, it pops out and clogging
the fuel system (pink goo). Rhepanol-paste is used in roof assemblies and contains PIB.
Do not store X66 in plastic bottles such as battery water or the like.
The plastic softens and shrinks up if exposed to diesel/white spirit for
a long time. Instead use a bottle that has contained lighting fluid.
It should be noted that diesel and naphthas feels slippery when you get
it on your fingers, so it may well mean that the X66 has a lubricating
properties - in addition to the cleansing and effect-enhancing properties.
For cars with electronic fuel injection, it is known since long time back that diesel
works as a cleaner, instead of injector cleaning like STP or similar products - but kerosene
will also work. I used often diesel myself at the time when there was only petrol
available (for a petrol car with fuel injection).
