Gas Oil Extra


Exocet Gas Oil Extra is a gas oil (BS2869:A2) upgrade product formulated to allow modern diesel engines calibrated on EN590 DERV to run on red diesel. It also compensates for some of the deleterious effects of a
higher FAME content e.g. tendency for water pick-up. The product will additionally enhance the performance
of older vehicles.

Economic benefits Performance benefits

  • Our Gas Oil fuel additive increased pulling power
  • It also creates smoother power delivery
  • Reduced visible emissions (smoke)
  • This fuel additive improved combustion efficiency
  • Aligns with modern engine calibrations
Increased fuel lubricity

  • For use if the vehicle lacks power, misfires or 'runs rough'
  • Used when the engine manufacturer recommends the use of an fuel additive
  • Gas Oil Extra should be used when excessive smoke is observed
  • The FAME content of the fuel is known to have increased
  • Fuel is being used in a tier III or later vehicle (typically post 2005)
  • Exocet Gas Oil Extra is added to fuel at the rate of 1 litre of additive to 3,000 litres of fuel. The additive will counter any negative effects resulting from the introduction of the latest gas oil specifications, notably the reduction in sulphur content and the increase in the allowable FAME (biodiesel) content. Typical applications are agricultural and horticultural machinery, construction equipment, airport vehicles and fork lift trucks.
  • The product is formulated from recognised fuel additive components and should not void an engine manufacturer’s warranty. In fact, many engine manufacturers now recommend the use of upgrade additives when red/green diesel is used.
  • Optimum results with Gas Oil Extra are enhanced by the addition of Exocet Diesel Power Restorer to the vehicle tank every 500 hours of operation.
