AquoFusion Brings Nanotechnology to Marine Fuel Treatments
Among the new fuel treatments and additives joining the marketplace is a product by AquoFusion. This nanotechnology-based fuel treatment alters the way in which hydrocarbons react to oxygen. The process helps reverse catenation and lengthens hydrocarbon bonds, improving fuel economy and maximizing output. It also removes abrasive deposits, helping the fuel burn clean with lower-emission rates. A 10-ounce bottle of AquoFusion treats 400 gallons of gas or diesel fuel.

Northern Lights Shows off Its Diesel Exhaust Cleaning System
Northern Lights featured its new Diesel Exhaust Cleaning System (DECS) at the Miami boat show. The DECS routes exhaust gas through a catalytically coated ceramic filter. The heat produced by the engines continuously burns off particulates, helping reduce carbon monoxide by up to 98 percent and diesel hydrocarbons by up to 95 percent. This is not only good for the environment, but improves the air quality for those on board and reduces the maintenance on exterior surfaces normally blackened by soot. Another bonus? The DECS is application specific and can be made to fit in almost any engine room.
