Fuchs Lubricants has made available the Silkolene Pro Boost, a high-performance, efficient octane improver designed to combat pre-ignition – often called ‘pinking’ or ‘knocking’. It contains a unique blend of synthetic organic chemicals that reduce upper cylinder wear and burn cleanly without leaving deposits in the combustion chamber.
It helps to ‘keep a clean effect’ in both carburettor and injection systems and reduces icing in carburetors while improving acceleration and lowering fuel system corrosion. Silkolene does not attack fuel hoses or filters. It has been successfully tested in a wide variety of car and motorcycle engines, including 2-stroke engines and is suitable for all petrol engines and all types of fuel.
It does not contain lead or aniline and use of the product can lead to a reduction in emissions through the more complete combustion of fuel. Throttle response is also improved and cold starting is facilitated, reducing heavy exhaust gas pollution with cold engines.
