WHERE NO WATER GETS IN A CAR, ALMOST SURE IT WILL BECOME WORSE

And if at the same time the thermometer’s column was hidden under the zero mark, then something will surely freeze somewhere, become clogged or simply burst … We will not scoff at your favorite toy - we’ll better try to use the achievements of chemistry.
Let's start with fuel. If your car consumes gasoline, then at the next refueling you can add the ST-2040 “concentrated gasoline system cleaner” (photo 1) to the American company STP. The contents of the bottle is enough for 80 liters of fuel. The product “binds” water, that is, mixes it with gasoline and prevents the freezing of the pipeline. In addition, manufacturers promise to reduce the level of CO, guarantee the cleaning of the power system, etc. The price of pleasure is 3.5 oz. e.
The drug of the same company ST-2150 (photo 2) is called a “water displacer”, although it does, in general, the same thing. Water in a dispersed state passes through the combustion chamber and is discharged from the exhaust pipe - at the same time the fuel path is cleaned. The product is year-round: in the fall and winter it prevents freezing, and in the spring and summer it removes condensate. However, it does not contain corrosive alcohol. The instructions are the same: pour into the tank before refueling. The approximate price is 2.5 y. e.
Another overseas product has similar talents (photo 3): the GUNK drug M23-12 is called “gasoline supplement” - it will cost you 2 y. e. The British for the same money offer the drug REOR from the company REDEX (photo 4). The drug is suitable for all types of gasoline engine injections and safe for catalysts. Before refueling a car, manufacturers recommend adding 20 ml per 10 liters of fuel. Subsequently, for prevention, the dose can be reduced to 10 ml per 10 liters.
On a photo 5 - means for the cars preferring gasoline diesel fuel. GUNK diesel engine nozzle cleaner M-74-32 will cost about 4.5-5 y. e. The abilities are the same: absorbs water in the fuel, preventing freezing of fuel lines and filters. The drug is added to the tank before refueling in a ratio of 1: 500. But the additive to diesel fuel M2216 of the same company is called differently - anti-gel (photo 6). This tool, worth 2.5 y. e., does not allow to thicken diesel fuel in cold weather, prevents the filter from freezing. The proportions are: at an air temperature below minus 7 ° C - 1 can per 500 liters, and in extremely cold weather - for every 250 liters. Note that it is desirable to add the agent to the fuel at a temperature not lower than plus 2 ° C.
A similar remedy for STP with the index ST-3008 (photo 7) is called "diesel stabilizer and injector cleaner." The contents of the bottle, calculated on approximately 100 liters of fuel, prevents the formation of rust in the tanks. The price is about 1.5-1.7. e.
