Tank sloshing is a severe problem for the fuel efficiency and your diesel engine performance. Watch how much air is introduced into the fuel tank in our demonstration video.
Air & Vapor in Diesel Fuel
Retarded Injection Timing
Air and vapor are compressible. When air bubbles or vapor are present in your diesel fuel pump, the injection is delayed until the substances are compressed to the injection pressure. This delayed injection then results in retarded injection timing. This can cause increased fuel consumption, lower power output, and increased exhaust emissions.
After the AirDog® Installation
This picture of the spray pattern taken after the installation of the AirDog Fuel Preporator shows the timely injection and full spray pattern definitively when all air and vapor have been removed from the fuel. The diesel engine, now with correct injection timing restored, will be able to deliver the fuel economy and the power output needed for the best diesel engine performance.
Before the AirDog® Installation
This spray pattern picture was taken before the installation of the AirDog Fuel Preporator. The delay of pressure buildup caused by the presence of air affects the timelines of the injection. This injection is then delayed and will result in a delayed ignition, loss of power, and much-unburned fuel exiting the exhaust in the form of black smoke. Additionally, it will take more fuel to create greater combustion for the engine to produce an acceptable power output.
