How does Star Tron's enzyme treatment formula work?
Star Brite Star Tron is a revolutionary fuel additive based on enzyme technology. Used correctly, it can prevent the problems associated with water content in fuel. Water can wind up in your gas or diesel fuel as a result of condensation in the tank. Because water is heavier than fuel, it sinks to the bottom of the tank and forms a distinct water layer. The fuel pick-up tube is located at the bottom of the tank so once this happens, water is supplied to your fuel pump. Since engines cannot burn water, they start to sputter and eventually stop running. In addition, water is corrosive so it deteriorates tank walls and metals in the fuel delivery system.
The enzymes in Startron prevent the water molecules that are in fuel from combining and forming a distinct water layer. Water is reduced to sub-micron size particles that cannot cause corrosion and are safely burned during normal combustion. The enzymes disperse water derived from normal condensation into microscopic clusters, and allows the water to pass through the fuel system and engine harmlessly, preventing the buildup on the tank bottom that can contribute to poor performance, fuel gelling and corrosion.
This de-watering effect prevents potential phase separation. If large amounts of water are already present it will be de-emulsified and drop out of the body of the fuel, improving overall fuel performance. Star Tron can also counter the effects of lost octane, greatly improving the combustion performance of E-10 fuel that has had water contamination.
Star Tron can also prevent filter plugging from old gum and varnish. The enzymes help break down the dislodged sludge and other deposits into sub-micron-sized particles that usually pass through the fuel filter and are burned away as part of the combustion process. Tank deposits that would cause gelling are solubilized so that fuel flows uninterrupted through the filters.
how much in 1-gallon?
Dosage is marked on the bottle- do the math for per gallon. I think a pint treats 32 gallons... Great stuff, btw.
About 1/2 oz. per gallon .
Doubt if this will help you much, but on the recommendation from my mechanic he advised adding just 1/4 cup to a full tank of gas. At the time I was driving my '74 Vette as my full time car. The car was originally designed to run on leaded fuel and with all the changes to gasoline over the years the 1/4 cup to a full gas tank (a 16 gallon tank) the StarTron Fuel Treatment worked to help with easier start-ups and smoother engine operation. Sadly I had to sell my beloved Vette last year after 41 years of driving the American Dream. However, I was pleased with the performance provided by StarTron's fuel treatment by just using 1/4 cup.
I am a landscape contractor. I put one ounce in five gallons of gas for all my equipment. I use twice the amount for off season storage. Star Tron states you can not put too much in.
do you need to start the vehicle when adding startron?
No. After filling up the car I'd bring the car home, shut it down then added just 1/4 cup to the tank.
No need to start the engine . just put it in the tank when you get gas .
no, just add then run 15 minutes
No. Add the Startron to the fuel tank, then add fuel.
When using this treatment in a weedwacker,do I still need to add the 2 cycle oil to the gas?
yes! starron is not an oil.,it helps keep the engine clean.You must still use 2cycle oil as required.
You must continue to add 2 cycle oil to the gas for all 2 cycle engines including your weedwhacker.
Yes, by all means. It still needs the lubrication.
I want a gallon of this item, I have gotten it from you twice be for in the gallon bottle, same size as the cleaner.Al so do you have a pump to fit the gallon bottle?
DON'T KNOW ABOUT A PUMP?MAYBE A FUNNEL, THEN POUR IN WHAT AMOUNT YOU DESIRE?
Well "Do you have a pump" as the man asked? True I have ordered the same size StarTron Gasoline Engine Fuel Treatment. But for my application I pour some of it in to a smaller bottle and then pour the amount I need from it.
Ok, but you use to have it by the gallon. Thank you for the reply, I will just have to buy it( 4 ) quarts at a time or less then. I will be in touch, thank you again for the reply.
Only buy Star Tron by the quart, so I can't really help.
what is the difference in formula of 143 and 930 ?
The formulas have the same ingredients. One is more concentrated. 1 oz of 143 treats 6 gallons of gasoline. 1 oz of 930 treats 16 gallons of gasoline.
J MARK ROTTSCHAFER
The 930 is double strength
how much does it reduce the emissions?
It's not intended to reduce emissions.
J MARK ROTTSCHAFER
it reduces moisture in your fuel and reduces carbon deposit. if you have any other questions go to this starbrite startron
Although I have used this product for several years I have no knowledge of its' impact on engine emissions. Sorry
Caan Startron be used in a tank where another brand of cleaner, specifically in this case, Sea-foam, has already been added, without wasting the full tank of gas, and, will it be as effective?
I really can't say, I think I would use the already treated gas and then add the Startron.
I am not 100% sure, but, I don't see were as adding the Stratton could hurt.
I have used Seafoam in the past, but not in cojunction with Star Tron. I have stored my Ducati with a full tank and Star Tron and all my generators, the wifes car and all my engines except my boat.. The boat holds 42 gallons and is easier to fill at the marina with pre treated marine fuel. Both are good products, and I would use them in the same gas.. But I'm not a chemist, just a high school dropout that is 73 years old.. Have Fun!!!
can this be used on 4 stroke outboard motor?
Most definitely you can. Great stuff!
I have used startron for 8 years not only in my boats, but also in my stored cars and lawn equipment. It has worked great for me. I have assumed that it works on both 4 stroke and two stroke engines and have used it accordingly with great results. I would check with star-brite for an official answer to your question.
The 930 treats 2- sroke up to Turbo Diesel :)
Absolutely best aditive ever 4 stroke or 2 stroke don't leave home without it Tom b
How long is a bottle of Startron stable & useable after opening?
I don't know what the shelf life is of Startron because I use so much of it. I buy 4 bottles of 32 oz. at a time for my family's 4 cars and 6 motorcycles. I swear by it to fight the ill effects of ethanol in small engines.
I do not believe there is any limited shelf life for an opened container of this product. I have had part bottles stored over the seasons and then used. I have seen no adverse reactions in my equipment- the product seems to do it's usual great job.
I've been using the same bottle that I bought in 2013 for my motorcycles and it still seems to be working.
I haven't used it yet, but it still smells good. Sorry I don't have more of an answer.
I buy it by the gallon and it usually lasts more than 1 year, it really makes a difference in the performance especially in small engine (lawnmower tractor and blower), on vehicles it really makes a difference on road trips 1 oz per tankful (18 gallons). I highly recommend this product over sta-bil.
I have added StarTron to my gas and my M/C uses a Kehien Carb. Will it do anything to the float?
no it is safe to use with carb it is great stuff
I'll bet it will not hurt any parts of a carburetor. One of my wife's m/c has a carb and she says I'm a genius for getting her bike to finally run smoothly.
I use it in my chainsaw, garden tractor, push mower, weed eater, generator and motor cycle.I have not had any problems.It definitely does make a difference in how the machinery runs.
Been using this great product for over 15 years and I use it in my cars and muscle cars, diesel truck and all of mine small engines that I use around the house. I t stops the ill effects that ethanol causes to engines and fuel systems. Ethanol is no good and acts like a sponge and absorbs moisture. I use non ethanol gas now in everything along with Startron as Startron stops and wicks away moisture. It also keeps the valves and spark plugs clean as well as fuel injectors and carburetors. Best product on the market hands down.
Great price on a needed additive!
Thanks for great pricing!
Good product always use it.
Use at every fuel up
I have bought this many times & works.
Best additive out there to actually do what it claims it does. I use it in every vehicle I own including motorcycle & small engine equipment. It not only disipates moisture & makes a super stabilizer, it keeps my engines clean & nixes the ill effects that ethanol blended fuels can cause.
Referred from Tv add and wanted to try. Happy with product
I use it in all my gas engins, keeps varnish from building up. Last longer than Stable
BEST New Product since the apple Ipod !
The product does EXACTLY as advertised / claimed .superior to anything that I have ever used !
