P.I. Performance Improver Concentrate (API)
Reformulated for greater potency
Package sizes include:
Also available in single-use bottles of P.I. Quickshot
Untreated Fuel Leads to Poor Engine Performance
Today's fuels, however, lack sufficient treatments of either enough additives or high quality additives. Fuel system deposits result in the following:
• Lost fuel economy
Treated Fuel Delivers Maximum Performance
• Improves fuel mileage an average of 2.3% and up to 5.7%
AMSOIL P.i. works as an “emissions passer.” It is ideal for use prior to emissions inspections.
Unsurpassed Deposit Clean-up
Intake Valve Deposits form on the intake side or back side of the valves. As deposits increase, they restrict airflow and alter airflow patterns in the cylinder. The deposits disrupt the balanced air/fuel ratio by momentarily absorbing and releasing fuel, and they can cause valve sticking by getting in the way of the valve stem and guide. Deposits also restrict proper seating, and the valves may be burned. Intake valve deposits cause lost engine power, increased emissions, poor engine efficiency and potential valve failure.
Combustion Chamber Deposits form on the top of the pistons and on the cylinder heads. They increase compression and absorb heat during combustion to later release it during the intake cycle. In some engines with tight squish domes, combustion chamber deposits cause the piston to actually hit the cylinder head. This is referred to as combustion chamber deposit interference or “carbon rap.” Combustion chamber deposits also flake off as they get large, and these flakes can get trapped between the valves and valve seat, resulting in compression loss, difficult starting and rough idle.
Higher compression and stored heat cause increased intake fresh charge temperatures and the increased likelihood of pre-ignition “knock” or “pinging” when the fuel spontaneously combusts prior to spark ignition. This increases emissions and may cause engine damage. Many of today's cars have “knock” sensors that adjust spark timing to prevent knock.
Although audible knock is controlled, power is lost from retarded timing. Higher octane fuels of 4-5 octane numbers can be used to help prevent knock, an effect called “octane requirement increase.” As a vehicle ages, more expensive higher octane fuel is needed to keep it operating at peak performance. By cleaning combustion chamber deposits, knock is controlled, power is restored, fuel economy increases and higher octane fuels are less necessary for peak performance.
