Additives - Vitamins for your engine

What are additives?

Definition: Additives (derived from the Latin word “additivum” = to add) aids or  admixtures that are added to products in minimal quantities to achieve or improve certain properties.


1. Soiled engine

Every combustion process leaves behind tiny particles inside an engine. These are deposits that build up in the combustion chambers, on injection nozzles, valves or nozzle needles.

The result: Impairments of the engine performance, increased fuel consumption, more soot emissions and more pollutant emissions. LIQUI MOLY additives eliminate existing deposits and prevent new deposits from forming. The combustion process is optimized.


2. Leaky radiator

In the event of leaks in the cooler system, the problem can be solved with additives. The additives seal small leaks immediately and completely. Constantly refilling the coolant and the complex search for leaks are thus rendered unnecessary.



3. Low temperatures

At temperatures below 0 °C, the paraffin in diesel can crystallize and clog the fuel filter.

This can be prevented with Diesel Flow Fit from LIQUI MOLY. Depending on the quality of the fuel, it keeps the diesel liquid up to temperatures of negative 31 °C.


4. Poor fuel quality

Modern engines require high fuel quality. This may differ from country to country, and sometimes even from filling station to filling station. With low-quality fuel, the engine does not achieve its full performance and does not run smoothly. The fuel does not burn cleanly, residues are deposited in the inside of the engine and can lead to damage. LIQUI MOLY additives can considerably improve the fuel quality.


5. Seasonal vehicles/decommissioned vehicles

Gasoline does not have an unlimited shelf life. It ages. With the right additive from LIQUI MOLY, this aging process can be slowed down while at the same time  the fuel system can be protected against corrosion. This is important on vehicles that are not going to be driven for several months. This is also logical for other gasoline engines such as on lawnmowers and chainsaws that are not used for longer periods. Otherwise, there is a risk of engine problems due to gasoline that has passed its shelf life and engine damage due to corrosion. It can also be dangerous for diesel vehicles with longer downtimes, such as agricultural and construction machinery, boats and camping vehicles. Under favorable conditions, molds, bacteria, and yeasts can propagate in diesel fuels. The water required for growth collects as condensation water on the floor of the tank due to the constant breathing of the tank and is distributed in the fuel in small quantities.

Furthermore, chemically bonded elements such as sulphur, phosphorous and trace elements in the diesel are decisive for growth. These molds, bacteria, and yeasts consequently clog up filters and fuel lines. To prevent microbes in the tank, the Anti-Bacterial Diesel Additive from LIQUI MOLY should be used regularly to prevent bacteria from developing.


6. Oil loss

If a vehicle loses or consumes oil, this may be caused by older seals. LIQUI MOLY also offers additives for this area of use. They regenerate rubber and plastic seals, making them soft and supple. This eliminates the oil loss. These ingredients take effect after driving a distance of 600 to 800 kilometers.
