Product Description

AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean (ADF) is formulated to clean both the tough-to-remove internal diesel injector deposits surfacing in modern high-pressure common-rail diesel engines and traditional carbonaceous deposits. Diesel Injector Clean delivers confidence in your diesel's performance. Its concentrated formula uses unique chemistry to target and eliminate specific performance issues, maximizing diesel power.

Helps Restore Horsepower & Improve Fuel Economy

Fuel injector deposits interrupt spray patterns, causing poor fuel atomization, incomplete combustion, excessive emissions and smoke. High-pressure common-rail fuel systems are becoming commonplace as vehicle manufacturers attempt to produce more power while still meeting tightening emissions standards. In high-pressure common-rail systems, injection pressures can be 30,000 psi and higher to atomize the fuel into a fine mist for more efficient combustion, yielding increased power and fuel economy while reducing emissions. To maintain these high pressures, injector assemblies are highly engineered, with clearances as tight as 1-3 microns (a human hair is typically 70-100 microns thick). Even minimal internal diesel injector deposits on the injector pintal or other components can lead to sticking and even seizure, reducing power, fuel economy and operability. Traditional additive chemistry is not designed to address these tough-to-remove deposits.

Diesel Injector Clean features advanced chemistry that delivers concentrated strength to target internal diesel injector deposits and traditional carbonaceous deposits, helping to restore horsepower and operability to like-new condition. Acceleration is improved and, with regular use, Diesel Injector Clean continues to enhance performance by keeping injectors clean. The net savings on fuel can result in no additional cost of ownership.

High-Pressure Common-Rail Fuel Injector PintalTraditional Fuel Injector Pintal

Fuel injectors in high-pressure common-rail diesel engines use smaller, highly engineered components to produce the higher fuel pressures needed for improved combustion. The tighter clearances invite internal diesel injector deposits that interfere with injector needle actuation, reducing performance. External deposits can also form on the injector nozzle (the typical trouble spot for traditional injectors). While many other fuel additives have yet to catch up to the internal diesel injector deposit problem, AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean targets deposits wherever they form, maximizing power, fuel economy and performance in high-pressure common-rail and traditional diesel engines.

Lubricates Fuel Pump & Injectors to Reduce Wear

Ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) provides significantly reduced lubricity - a critical property in controlling wear in fuel pumps and injectors. Diesel Injector Clean adds back the lubricity the fuel pump and injectors need, reducing wear, improving service life and saving time and money on maintenance costs.

Separates Fuel and Water

Diesel Injector Clean is an alcohol-free product that protects fuel systems against water contamination. It helps prevent fuel/water emulsions so that separating filters can safely remove water before it reaches the injectors, where it can cause corrosion. Water can be drained easier, ensuring drivability.

Extends Filter Life

Modern diesel engines run hot, raising the temperature of the fuel returned to the tank and causing carbonaceous deposits that collect in the fuel filter (see picture), plugging it and causing premature failure issues. AMSOIL Diesel Injector Clean effectively protects against deposits, extending fuel filter life.

Minimizes Soot-Loading

Diesel Injector Clean's powerful formula cleans fuel injectors and piston rings for improved combustion and better sealing. It minimizes soot generated from incomplete combustion and helps keep soot out of the crankcase, reducing soot-related wear and engine oil viscosity increase.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Diesel Injector Clean is recommended for use with all types of heavy- and light-duty, on- or off-road and marine diesel engines. For initial use, follow the Clean-Up recommendation; use Maintenance dose for regular treatment. Use with every tank of fuel for best performance and protection against fuel-pump wear, injector wear and injector deposits. Compatible with all types of exhaust emission systems, including diesel particulate filters (DPFs). Add to fuel before storage. Excellent for use with AMSOIL Diesel Cetane Boost and AMSOIL Diesel Cold Flow.

Long live Injectors and Pump!

I have to admit he Primary reason for starting with this, I simply wanted to give every chance for my injectors to "live" as long as possible, along with the also, very expensive Injector Pump. Alongside, with a Fass Fuel pump/separator, I really feel these components will last through "my days"!

Does it actually work?

I'm using my Jeep GC 3.0 CRD as a DD and I'm trying to keep my diesel consumption low. After applying the cleaner I've got from 23 to 24 mpg. Not super much, but definitively something has happened. Just turned 200k on the odometer, want to go 400k. May be I will report back in 10 Years! ;)

I have tried the injector cleaner on my 2007 GMC LBZ with 330,000KM.
I have had more smoke on startup in cold weather -15 to -20 Deg C.
I have been using the Amsoil injector cleaner for 3 tanks of fuel and found no difference.
I purchased GM upper cylinder injector cleaner and found a major difference.
GM upper cylinder injector cleaner requires you to mix 1.6 L of diesel with 1 container of cleaner and run the supply and return fuel lines out of a container.
I takes about 45 minutes to run the cleaner through the engine at elivated idle.
This clean has changed the cylinder balance rates back to normal all injectors are within 1-3 in park and 3-4 in drive.
I was hoping for Amsoil to make a produce that would do a better job of cleaning diesel injectors and returning balance rates to normal for injectors with high mileage.
The produce is not worth the price and time. Hope the engineers can come up with a much better product.
Sorry for the negative reply on the product. I do use Amsoil in everything else on my truck thats why I gave the injector cleaner a try.

Cleaned up

Used this on my truck that had about 40,000 on it noticed smoother idling and a little more pep in acceleration after one tank of fuel.

I will always use this

I have a 2005 Chevy with 338000 miles on it. Have used the injector cleaner since the first 1500 miles. I still have the original injectors. Have plowed and pulled a 16' construction trailer truck has not been babied.
