Rycon 1 - Oil Fortifier
Q. Can Rycon
1 be used in petroleum and synthetic oils?
A. Rycon 1 is compatible with all petroleum and synthetic motor
Q. Can Rycon 1 be used in a new
or rebuilt engine?
A. We recommend that a new or rebuilt engine should have at
least 30,000 kms/18,000 miles on it before using Rycon 1. Please
contact John Day for further information.
Q. What happens
if I use too much Rycon 1?
A. Please use recommended application rates for best results
as using more only results in a waste of product and money.
Q. Will Rycon
1 affect seals and gasket materials?
A. No. Rycon 1 is compatible with all O.E.M. materials also
wherever hydrocarbon based lubricants are used.
Q. Is it
all right to use Rycon 1 in an older engine?
A. Yes. It may be necessary to change the oil a couple of times
as Rycon 1 will slowly clean contaminants and carbon from valve
train, rings, etc. It will suspend contaminants so the filtering
media will remove them from your oil.
Q. Can I
mix Rycon 1 with other oil additives or treatments?
A. We recommend that you use only Rycon 1 with your motor oils
as we do not know the chemistry of other additives or treatments
as sometimes these mixtures can create problems as plugging
filters or other components.
Q. Does Rycon have any solid products
A. There are no products such as graphite, teflon, zinc, moly
- Fuel Treatment
Is your additive 100% petroleum based?
Does the additive clean and lubricate critical Top Engine wear
surfaces such as valves, rings and pistons?
the additive reduce the sulfuric acid action of the sulfur in
A. It can reduce sulfuric acid action such as white sulfate
salt at the end of the tailpipe, but only to a certain extent.
Sulfuric acid action caused by by sulfur-laden fuel cannot be
eliminated; it can only be curtailed. The reason for this is
when sulfur in fuel is burned, sulfur dioxides are the end product.
Condensation of sulfur dioxides with another combustion product
(water) forms sulfuric acid.
Does the additive eliminate the formation of gums, varnishes
Some of the new unleaded fuels have a very short shelf life.
Does your additive slow down this problem such as extending
the shelf life from 6 weeks to 6 months or 2 months to 12 months.
A. It has not been determined whether or not the additive will
extend the shelf life of some new unleaded fuels. A product
may be custom formulated if necessary.
Does the additive improve the burn cycle.
A. Burn cycle will generally be improved unless there is a major
Does the additive lower the emission levels.
A. Yes. Emission level will be reduced unless there is a major
mechanical problem. The emission gases reduced are Hydrocarbons
owing to better combustion and and the Nitrogen Oxides owing
to lesser air requirement. The level of Sulfur Dioxide, however,
may or may not change because it is essentially dependent of
the sulfur content in the fuel.
Does the additive lower the exhaust temperature?
A. Yes. In general, it should be expected that the exhaust temperature
will be lowered. This is due to more efficient conversion of
thermal energy into mechanical output due to better top end
compression brought about by superior ring /liner lubrication.
Does the additive prevent spark plug fouling?
A. Yes. Spark plug fouling can be prevented. Trijet promotes
improved compression, hence a better and cleaner burn. It is
ash free and phosphate free.
Using your additive, can you use a lower octane fuel?
A. The suitability of our additive for use with lower octane
fuel has not been tested, but similarly, a product to serve
this purpose may be custom formulated, if necessary.
Does your additive allow a vehicle requiring leaded fuel to
stop valve recession now to be able to use unleaded fuel?
A. If by valve recession you mean wear, then the answer would
be yes. We can reduce wear.
What effect does your additive have on catalytic converters
and oxygen sensors?
A. Trijet does not contain phosphate or any kind of metal and
therefore will not affect catalytic converters. Due to a cleaner
burn they will remain and last longer.
What is the average fuel savings?
A. Average fuel savings is of a very individual nature and would
have to be assessed on a case to case basis. In Canada we have
experienced up to 20% fuel saving.
What is the mix ratio for your additive?
A. Mix ratios range from 0.52% by volume to about 2.0% by volume
depending on the number of multifunctional features desired.
In Canada, most companies are getting excellent results with
a 0.52% ratio.
