This is the testimonial of Jimmy Marr, heavy diesel fitter and drilling company owner/operator.

Having worked with diesel engines my entire life I could see the need for a 'metal treatment' that could not only save on fuel consumption but at the same time reduce the wear and tear on the machinery.

Both these factors have become extremely important since beginning my own drilling company. I decided to trial Bi-tron to determine its cost effectiveness, using 2 Stroke Detroit, 400 horse power engine compressor, driving a constant speed at high idle 12 hours per day.

I used Engine Formulation in the motor, E.P. Metal Treatment in the gear box, and Diesel Fuel Conditioner in the fuel. As this compressor runs at a constant power and is stationery on a drill rig, it makes for a trial with little variation and changing conditions to consider, and of course greater accuracy.

"The Engine Driving the 900CFM/350 PSI, 2 Stage Sullair Compressor consumed:-

BEFORE BI-TRON -- 41 L DIESEL / Hr.

AFTER BI-TRON -- 34 L DIESEL / Hr.

With this fuel saving alone, the cost of Bi-tron pays for itself, and I now use these products in all my machinery.
