There are many ways to optimize the performance of the diesel engine. Tank sloshing, for example, introduces entrained air to the diesel fuel system, which can be a serious impairment to your fuel efficiency, and add to your maintenance costs. Fortunately, we have developed the AirDog Fuel Preporator to remedy the fuel-efficiency and power-robbing effects of air entrainment.
Keeping your diesel engine in check is a great way to boost performance, and regular maintenance is one way to ensure you never have hiccups on the road. Below are even more tips to ensure optimal performance.
- Always, Always, Always Maintain the Cooling System
The cooling system is one of the most important systems of your engine, as diesel engines generate a lot more heat than gasoline-operated machines. When checking your engine, make sure the cooling system is your top priority. You should flush and refill the system at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals, as well as to replace any worn-out parts as needed.
- Use the Right Fuel Injectors
Some fuel injector companies boast that their products can boost a diesel engine’s power by 50 to 100 horsepower. When replacing fuel injectors, selection of the correct product for the application is critical to optimizing engine power, fuel efficiency, exhaust emissions, and more. Be sure to discuss this in detail with your engine repair shop or tech.
