Turbocharger & exhaust smoke-the solution
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I used to get a black smudge on my hull as most Amel owners do.
I was advised by Joel to put on multiple layers of Teflon based wax in that area.
That worked pretty well.
Now I use Howells fuel treatment available at most fuel oil terminals’ .
Not only is it a biocide, they guarantee 5% better fuel economy. Cleaner injectors and better fuel lubrication.
It is used to store fuel oil, and the #1 diesel treatment at Truck stops.
It was originally suggested to me by Yanmars’ chief mechanic.
Its magical stuff.
check out their fuel savings calculator.
I left one of my auxiliary fuel tanks half full all winter in the Caribbean.
I filled it up on leaving for New York.
We motored for 5 days straight. I looked at the 2 micron filter that I use (I believe Yanmar recommends 10 micron).
today It was clean after burning over 200 gallons of diesel.
