How EnerBurn® Works

EnerBurn® works by conditioning the combustion chamber surfaces with a nano scale catalytic coating that doubles the rate of combustion. This causes higher pressure earlier on crank angle which allows the engine to produce more work (HP) with the same amount of fuel. With the work load being the same, this translates into greater fuel efficiency (gph). Because of increased work conversion caused by earlier pressure on crank angle, the exhaust temperature of the engine is reduced by approximately 40-44 degrees F. The emission benefits are achieved due to a More Complete Combustion, Lower Operating Temperature, and Lower Overall Pressure. This accounts for the Reduction of Unburned carbon being released via the exhaust and back into the oil as soot.
