PROOFS, TESTS… EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TOTAL EXCELLIUM FUELS

Engine cleanliness, what is it exactly?

For petrol engines: TOTAL EXCELLIUM PETROL prevents up to 93%(1)of inlet valves fouling on indirect injection engines. It keeps the admission system clean
          For diesel engines: TOTAL EXCELLIUM DIESEL prevents up to 89%(2) of injector fouling.

How can a fuel maintain engine performance over time?

Regular use of TOTAL EXCELLIUM fuels keeps the injection system and the inlet valves clean.

  • For petrol engines: by keeping the engine admission system clean, TOTAL EXCELLIUM PETROL ensures excellent quality of air/fuel mixing, and therefore preserves the performance of your engine over its lifetime.
  • For diesel engines: TOTAL EXCELLIUM DIESEL maintains the power of your engine over time thanks to the protection of the injectors against deposits.

  • Moreover, TOTAL EXCELLIUM fuels protects metal components against corrosion due to water presence (caused by condensation, rain, sprays…) which might harm some parts of your engine’s fuel system.

And what about consumption reduction?

A fouled engine can increase the fuel consumption of your engine, this is why it is essential to keep it clean to maintain its efficiency. TOTAL EXCELLIUM contains detergents that reduce the engine fouling and so reduce the fuel consumption.

Are polluting emissions reduced with all the products of the TOTAL EXCELLIUM range?

Indeed, whether using TOTAL EXCELLIUM PETROL or TOTAL EXCELLIUM DIESEL, CO2 emissions are directly reduced thanks to the reduction in consumption.
