What is Viscon?
Viscon is new technology that improves the combustion of
fuel. Viscon will make your engine run more smoothly and reduce its operating temperature, fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.
Is Viscon EPA approved?
Viscon is a pure hydrocarbon, and as such is
exempt from EPA regulations. In accordance with the EPA registration requirements for fuels and fuel additives, "'additive' means any substance other than one composed solely of carbon and/or hydrogen."
Why does Viscon improve throttle response?
As the throttle is advanced
more fuel is delivered to the induction system of an engine. However, there is a lag in getting the additional fuel into the cylinder due to the physical properties of the fuel. This causes a lean condition and poor
throttle response. Viscon changes the physical properties of gasoline so that more fuel is entrained in the air/fuel mixture entering the cylinder.
How do I mix Viscon in my fuel?
At the pump, pour a bottle of Viscon into
your tank before filling up. The mixing action of fuel pouring into your tank will adequately blend Viscon with your fuel. If you are driving a fuel injected car, the re-circulation pump will continue to mix the
additive with your fuel. Once mixed, Viscon will stay suspended in your fuel indefinitely. Not even freezing the fuel, which requires extremely low temperatures, will cause the active ingredients of Viscon to settle
Why does my automobile start more easily when I use Viscon?
are complicated by the reduced vaporization of gasoline in a cold engine. The result is insufficient fuel in the cylinder to support proper combustion. During cold starts, a considerable percentage of fuel wets
intake and cylinder walls. By reducing wall wetting through the viscoelastic properties it imparts on fuel, Viscon improves the mixing of fuel with air which in turn improves engine starting.
Is Viscon toxic?
No. The active ingredient of Viscon is not toxic - it is
a food-grade polymer. The ingredients that suspend the active ingredient are low VOC hydrocarbons.
Will Viscon damage paint?
Viscon does not contain any caustic chemicals and therefore will not damage paint.
Why does Viscon decrease visible smoke in the exhaust of my engine?
is generally a sign of incomplete combustion of the fuel (unburned hydrocarbons). Viscon caused fuel to burn more completely in two- and four-cycle gasoline and diesel engines reducing the amount of unburned
hydrocarbons in the exhaust.
Why does Viscon decrease engine vibrations?
A major cause of vibration in
an engine is cycle-to-cycle variability in the combustion of fuel. In most part cyclic variability is caused by changes in the properties of the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder from one burn cycle to the next.
Viscon improves the uniformity of the air/fuel mixture making combustion of the fuel more uniform from cycle to cycle.
What are the long-term effects of using Viscon in my engine?
not cause either short term or long term harm to gasoline or diesel engines. Viscon is a pure hydrocarbon. The active ingredient, a long-chain hydrocarbon, burns into a gas and leaves no residue. The polymer in
Viscon has been used in gasoline and diesel fuel in a shorter molecular form for more than fifty years.
Why does Viscon improve torque?
Viscon improves both the volumetric
efficiency of an engine and the uniformity of fuel species distribution in the cylinder at ignition and during burn. It is well known that increased volumetric efficiency increases torque. Less well known is that a
more uniform distribution of the light and heavy ends of gasoline in the mixture at ignition and during burn increases the speed of flame propagation. The result is better conversion of the fuel’s energy to
mechanical energy and increased torque.
Why does Viscon decrease engine temperature?
Early, fast heat release
after ignition and slow, late burn are major factors in the formation of high combustion gas temperatures. Fractional distillation of gasoline during intake and compression causes a concentration of the light, fast
burning ends of gasoline at the spark plug at ignition and a high concentration of the heavy, slower burning ends in the unburned gas ahead of the flame front. The result is a fast, high heat release at ignition and
a slow, hot burn thereafter. Viscon makes fuel species distribution in the cylinder at ignition and during burn more uniform. The result is slower, early combustion and faster flame propagation. Both changes produce
reduced combustion gas temperature.
